Going on holiday to New Zealand with your family? Hiring a campervan in New Zealand as part of your NZ adventure is awesome and should be seriously considered if you are travelling with a young family. I should know, having toured both North and South Island in one with my own children! Holidaying with a young family comes with its own set of challenges and with so much to see in New Zealand travelling in a campervan is a great and relatively easy way to see some of the country. How does no flight check ins, hotel check ins, time restrictions and packing and unpacking sound? Pretty good right?
Campervan holidays are brilliant fun!
There are lots of options when considering campervans, from the very basic which are probably more suitable to backpackers on a budget to bling – and I have seen some pretty flash campervans and believe me they are the way to travel if comfort is high on your list! The costs vary somewhat depending on the size of the van, the time of year and how long you hire it for but prices can range from $10 per day for basic (and probably not that suitable) to $520 per day for bells and whistles!
Campervanning around New Zealand is VERY popular and NZ caters for this. There are copious amounts of campsites and also freedom camping is still an option provided your campervan has facilities. The adventure is really in being fortunate to see places that you wouldn’t normally get to if you travelled the country by train or plane. You never know what is around the corner and you have the luxury of taking as long as you like between destinations, you can drive while the kids are sleeping, stop when they need to stretch their legs, change your route and pause to soak up all the beauty New Zealand has to offer. The kids will love being able to stop at a moment’s notice and explore places that they spot like rivers and parks and to wake up with a new view every morning. You will get the opportunity to buy and cook local produce along the way, even catch your own, and your photo album will be the envy of all your friends back home.
