Campervan and motorhome hire from Auckland, New Zealand

New Zealand has masses of motorhome and campervan pickup and drop off points on both North and South Islands from where you can start your driving holiday virtually straight from the plane.

Auckland, on North Island, is one of the most popular pickup points, and this is a good a place to start as it comes as the North Island has a subtropical climate in summertime so you are pretty well guaranteed good weather at that time of year. It can and does rain here though so we recommend that you go prepared for that eventuality.

After all, rain makes the New Zealand economy go round as a great many of the inhabitants find their employment is to do with the land either in crop growing or animal husbandry.

The warmest months are December, January and February, and the coldest June, July and August. In summer, the average maximum temperature ranges between 20 - 30șC and in winter between 10 - 15șC in the inland forests of South Island.

Being an island New Zealand boasts fabulous shorelines and beaches, and whilst driving your hire vehicle you may notice that the roads are totally uncluttered and as different as chalk is to cheese from our own in the UK.

So we hope your stay in New Zealand will be something you can look back on as you tour the country in your hired motorhome and turn your dreams into reality.
