Motorhome Hire in New Zealand

A driving holiday in New Zealand is without a doubt a great way to see this country and highly popular with travellers from around the world. With many beautiful regions to tour, a great road network and a wide variety of rental and accommodation types, it’s easy to see why.

With both car hire and motorhome rental available, you will need to decide which is the best option for you. Both choices have their pros and cons, and in the end, it will depend on factors such as the places you wish to visit, duration of your stay and budget, that will determine the winner.


The benefits of travelling in a motorhome include:

Be sure to keep an eye out for current deals and specials that are available when you book and pay within a certain period. More information on travelling with a motorhome can be found on our Motorhomes FAQ page.

Car Hire

Although there are added bonuses that come with hiring a motorhome, also comes the price. If you shop around you may well find a combination of car rental and budget accommodation which will work out cheaper than hiring a motorhome. This would require creating a stricter itinerary in order to make it to your different accommodation on time, however some people may prefer this.

The plus side of renting a car is the ease of driving it in the city compared to a large camper, as well as parking and lower fuel costs, so whether you plan to do more city or country driving is also a factor to consider. Check out the deals and specials available on car hire or visit our Car Hire FAQ's page if there is something else you are curious about.

Overall, both methods are a great way to explore New Zealand, and a driving holiday will give you more freedom than you would get by joining tours or relying on guides.
