There are many websites online that can help you find a cheap campervan in NZ. Look through the internet using the same keywords as you would when searching for a self-contained home or car rental.

A few of the better sites include NZ Offers, Easy Caravan, NZ Bus Finder, and Budget campervan. Make sure that you find out what the price range of the campervan is before committing to any company.

Compare Prices

If you already know which companies you are interested in and you have found a list of companies that compare prices, don’t rush into the process of booking a campervan. Compare what different companies offer. Some self-contained campervan providers may have larger fleets of vans available than others, offering better prices.

However, there are differences in the kinds of amenities included in each company’s vans. For example, some will provide you with showers and toilet facilities. Others may not.

Know What You Want

When you start comparing the different companies, get a clear idea of what you are looking for in your campervan. Are you looking for a spacious van with double beds for you and your loved ones, or just enough room for you?

Do you need wheelchair accessibility or other extras? Compare prices with a view to choosing the best deal for your needs. You can also work out your budget so that you know what price range you can realistically afford.


There are plenty of consumer reviews available on the internet about specific companies as well as general van options. Check out both online and offline consumer ratings and reviews for any company you are considering.

It is also a good idea to search for independent review sites as these give you a more objective assessment of a product or service. These can be particularly helpful if you are going on a business trip and would not normally book a van online.

Book Your Cheap Campervan

The best thing to do once you’ve decided which company you want to book a van from is to book it as soon as you can. This will mean that you won’t miss out on any discounts or seasonal reduced rates that companies might offer.

Some companies will even offer early bird deals that could save you a great deal of money as you’ll get it at a discounted rate when you make your booking.

Compare Hire Charges

Look for a company that charges an appropriate fee for the distance that you intend to travel. For instance, some companies will charge a fee per day for a span of 5 days, whereas others charge a flat fee for the whole holiday.

You need to check this with each rental company that you consider. Also, make sure that you have a budget in place so that you don’t overspend unnecessarily on holiday hire.

Final Words

Check all the terms – One of the best ways to find the cheapest rental for your campervan is to read up on what the company has to offer. This should include information on cancellation/refund, alternative accommodation at the airport, and charges for pick-up/drop-off. It’s also a good idea to ask the company for a list of destinations, as it may be included as part of the hire. Finally, always enquire about any extra services and amenities – these can often be included in the package, such as car parking or child care.
