In the introduction to his book Vantastic – A Pictorial History of Caravans in New Zealand Chris Hunter observed that caravanning was undergoing a revival.
“The Kiwi bach and coastal land are now beyond the means of the average New Zealander, but the caravan offers a return to simpler holiday pleasures.”
At Bluebridge we’re huge fans of simple pleasures and you’ll enjoy plenty of benefits when you take your caravan across Cook Strait with us.
If you’re a member of the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association (NZMCA) you’ll enjoy special ferry fares. If you’re not a member you should join before you book your crossing with us – you’ll save your NZMCA membership fee in just a couple of trips.
Family Parks have offered great-value family accommodation and caravan sites throughout New Zealand for over 21 years. If you’ve joined their Tribal Rewards programme you’ll get a 10% discount on Bluebridge ferry tickets. You must book via the Bluebridge website or call centre though, not through a travel agent.
If caravanning conjures images of orange formica, sandy beds and board games with half the pieces missing, think again. Christchurch company W2 has come up with a caravan design for generation Y, inspired by the fold-out design of the Swiss army knife. It’s aerodynamic design makes it easier to tow and built to maximise air flow to keep you cool in summer. Check out the amazing Romotow
