Hey All

I'm doing my round the world trip next year (just saving at the moment) and me and my girlfriend have decided that the best way we can see all of NZ is by hiring a campervan for the 1-2 months we are there.

Can anyone direct me to a fantastically cheap campervan hiring site? I've been looking on They look pretty cool but seem to like the fridge etc which u get with some other hire firms...

Whats your thoughts?

I doubt if you will find a cheap campervan hiring site.The more facilities you want in your van the more you will pay.Why not go for a sleeper, you can always use a chilly bin for milk etc, and you can use the camping ground facilities. If you are coming in the summer don't leave it too much longer to book or you will miss out.

I don't know ... here in Australia I work in a travel agency and we have really cheap campervan deals (campervans, not sleepervans) in the off season ... like $20 a day for the van plus $30 a day if you get the insurance. I couldn't believe how cheap the specials were. However, the price is dramatically higher in peak season.

Quick tip - check if you travel insurance covers the bond. You will still need to put the bond up but if you lose it some travel insurance policies will cover it.
