New Zealand tourism numbers are healthier than they have ever been before. In the year that ended March 2018, the country welcomed 3.82 million visitors and the previous five years have seen tourist numbers steadily growing. Many tourism experts believe that the epic Lord of the Rings saga and the Hobbit both of which were filmed in New Zealand have contributed to an increased interest in the incredible natural beauty of the country. Be that as it may – New Zealand is attracting those who want to enjoy Mother Nature at her most unspoiled and impressive. For many people hiring a Campervan in New Zealand is the perfect way to explore the country and enjoy its natural wonders.
Hiring a Campervan in New Zealand is simply the most perfect way to explore the country at your own pace. it allows you to choose how long you will spend in one of the many areas of interest across the country and allows you the comforts of home and the opportunity to interact with New Zealanders and really get under the skin of what makes this country such a special place – rather than sticking to a resort – which can be a little impersonal.
Here are some hints and tips that can make hiring Kiwi Motorhomes even more rewarding.
If you are considering visiting New Zealand and hiring a campervan during December, January or February make sure that you book your campervan well in advance. This is the high season and those who expect to get off the plane and find a campervan for hire are almost bound to be disappointed. booking early can also get you some great discounts – or added extras that will make that campervan experience even more fun.
Getting to New Zealand can involve many hours of air travel – and the jet lag that is part and parcel of changing time zones. If you want to get the most out of hiring a Campervan in New Zealand make sure to rest up for a day once you arrive. Starting off your journey of exploration cranky and tired is going to set the tone for the rest of the trip – and potentially ruin what should be a wonderful experience.
As with any rental experience, it is important to read the terms and conditions of the rental before you sign on the dotted line. You’ll in all probability be asked for a deposit – and the cancellation fees for late cancellation can be up to 100% of the cost. It’s also important to know that most campervan leasing companies charge a ‘one-way fee’. If you drop off your campervan in a location other than the one where you picked it up that’s going to cost extra. As will traveling from North to South Island (or in the opposite direction – and remember ferry costs).
Witha little research and planning hiring a Campervan in New Zealand can be one of the most rewarding vacation experiences that you will ever enjoy. Book your New Zealand adventure today with Kiwi Motorhomes.
