How to plan a New Zealand motorhome holiday

Motorhome and campervan holidays are the best (and one of the most enjoyable) way to see the most of New Zealand in the least amount of time.

Planning a New Zealand motorhome holiday is easy. By doing your research and making bookings before you arrive, you can combine your transport and accommodation in one easy booking. That means your holiday time is spent making the most of the sights and activities.

Before you book, think about the type of holiday you want. How much distance will be travelled and over how many nights? Do you want to stay in holiday parks or are you keen to try ‘freedom camping’? How many people will be travelling together? How many seperate beds will be required? Do you need an onboard kitchen, or shower and toilet? If you are travelling with children, will they require booster seats according to New Zealand road regulations?

All these factors will influence what you need from your motorhome or campervan. Families with children appreciate larger motorhomes with plenty of room for everyone’s clothes, toys and rainy-day indoor activities. The onboard kitchens in motorhomes allow you to stick to a budget, eat the food you prefer and at the times that suit you. Do some research and plan a menu and shopping list so you can stock up on basics at the start of your journey.

Onboard showers and toilets are also particularly convenient for mature travellers and families with younger children. Modern designs make disposing of waste a tidy and easy job at nominated waste dump stations across New Zealand.

Most motorhome and campervan rental companies offer a wide range of recreational vehicles to suit all types of travellers. Take some time to study the vehicles online – companies such as Apollo Camper and Hippie Camper have the vehicle floorplan and internal photos online so you can be sure you know what you will be travelling in.

Once you’ve found your ideal motorhome or campervan you can start searching for the best deals. Happy travels!
