Questions about a trip to New Zealand, Ok my Ma is planning on landing in Christchurch and renting an RV?
And driving to Auckland, she is wondering if it’s worth her while to even do this because the travel agent is quoteing a very high cost for the RV rential, if anyone knows a reasonable company to rent from that would be cool. Is traveling in an RV a good way to see New Zealand? Is it safe, is it easy for parking and driveing around there? I am trying to get an idea from maybe someone who has done this and has any advice we don’t know, thanks so much for your imput.
From my experience the largest motor home rental company is Maui http://www.maui.co.nz/. There are quite a few other companies mentioned above. Rates and quality of the vehicles do vary. The prices are definitely more expensive during our summer and slightly off season much better deals are available.
One piece of advice I will give is to be aware. In country areas the hours of many of the businesses are restricted, this caught many tourists out. Many of the tourists I spoke with said they wished they had allocated more time for the South Island of New Zealand.
Most people travelling by motor home seemed happy. Hope your Ma has a great trip to New Zealand.
