You can start and end your road trip
from our base locations Christchurch (South Island), Auckland, Paihia
) or any other domestic airport
If you chose to visit both islands you can do a one-way hire; this will save you on diesel and ferry costs but most of all: Save on time so you can really explore, and not just ‘tick off’ the top tourist locations as quickly as possible. Unlike many other companies, we don’t charge you one-way fees.
If you plan to start your motorhome
hire in Christchurch, we arrange a Taxi transfer from the Airport or any CBD accommodation to our handover location. For your own safety, we don’t hand over your motorhome straight after arriving on a long-haul flight. Unless you arrive from Australia we require an overnight rest period for your own safety and to avoid fatigue
. We recommend staying at the Arcadia Motel
as you will depart from here as well.
Pickup of the motorhome available between 9:00 to 17:00
Handback is at the Arcadia Motel
and the Taxi transfer to Christchurch Airport or, when you are not staying at the Arcadia Motel,
any CBD accommodation is included.
Return of the motorhome available between 9:00 to 17:00
