Traveling New Zealand – Get Accommodation on the Cheap With a Hired Campervan


New Zealand is a beautiful country with spectacular scenery and many activities that people can take part in. Just a few of the amazing things you can do in New Zealand include:

· Walking on a glacier

· White Water Rafting

· Taking a tour through the wine country

· Walks around the Tongariro Crossing

· Whale Watching

· Zorbing

· Bungee Jumping

· Movie Tours

· Overland Trekking

· Catching a Bus

To enjoy all of New Zealand at a leisurely pace, I’ve always found renting a campervan to be the most rewarding way of getting around and soaking it all in. Campervan’s aren’t just for road trips – having self-contained accommodation where you can come and go as you please is a great way to experience the culture of a place and meet the locals instead of getting cooped up in a hotel or busy hostel. It is the complete experience and a wonderful way to create memorable experiences on a whim that will stay with you for life. Of course, it can become a bit expensive if it is not done properly, but with some preparation and research, hiring a campervan can not only make things simpler, it can also save you money.

Things to keep in mind when hiring a campervan to avoid running over cost

– Size: Are you traveling solo, or bringing a whole family along for the ride? The size of your camper should be determined by the number of travelers, as the cost greatly increases as you go up in size.

– Number of Days: Do your best to avoid booking days you don’t need, but keep in mind you will not be able to extend your trip once you’re out on the road. Often a campervan will already be booked for the very next day after your return, and the company will still need to clean and re-furnish it.

– Required Amenities: Feel like you’re going to need access to a toilet while you’re on the road? How about cooking tools? Maybe you want a baby seat too? All these extras will add up and increase the cost of your rental, so be sure you’re clear from the start what you do and don’t need.

– Distance to travel: Most camper blogs will tell you that some vehicles are better equipped for long trips than others. Some will be 4WD while others will be strictly on-road vehicles. Make sure your rental company knows what you need, and where you plan to go before you make your booking.
