Campervans/Motorhome questions

Jump to last reply

We are returning to New Zealand after an absence of 7 years and plan on spending 4-6 weeks touring probably just the South Island by Motorhome / Campervan ( never sure what the difference is!).

I could do with some advice/guidance/opinions on which rental company to use. Last time we used Adventurevans for the whole eight weeks and they were pretty good. Older vans and we had one or two problems but they were fixed pretty quickly. Other companies I have looked at include Britz, Apollo, Maui. Any thoughts or experiences on any of these companies?

Also, the excess charges/ deposits seem very high, varying between 3-7k NZD. The daily fees to waive these also seem riduculously high, in some cases, almost doubling the cost. I have found a couple of UK insurance providers that will cover this excess ATM a lower price but wondered whether there are any alternatives in New Zealand.

Any input would be much appreciated.
