Editors Review

Just Go is one of the premier companies offering campervans for hire in New Zealand. And for good reason—  their staff is friendly, their campervans are reliable, and they give you plenty of options to choose from.

About Just Go Motorhomes

Traveling to New Zealand from overseas and worried about local traffic laws and regulations? Don’t be. Just Go knows your safety is paramount. That’s why they supply each of their campervans with a welcome pack that outlines New Zealand traffic laws. Plus, their staff will gladly answer any questions you may have. The Just Go team wants to ensure that you feel safe and secure before heading out on your adventure. This relatively large rental company operates not just in NZ but also in the UK and Australia. Their New Zealand depot is located only 20 minutes north of Auckland airport. Even better, you can arrange for one of their staff to pick you up at the airport if that’s most convenient. Just go offers a lot of choices for long and short hires— everything from 5 days to a year. With Just Go, you can have your adventure on your terms. But you might be surprised the even if the company is huge, it sources out rental vehicles from other larger motorhome hire— Maui, in particular. With a rental from the renowned Maui business group, expect for a high-class campervan hire that may need extra dollars on your pocket. 

Fleet

Whilst Just Go in the UK (parent company) has their own branded vehicles, in New Zealand they have simply sub hired from Maui. So really a rental from Just Go NZ will see you picking up from the Britz campervan hire agency depots and driving a Maui branded vehicle. That being said Maui are a great, premium company with vehicles that rarely get beyond 3 years old. And with five different campervan models to choose from Just Go has you covered whether you’re a couple, a family, or a group exploring New Zealand together. You can enjoy your adventure in New Zealand without the fear that your campervan is going to break down. Reliability is only the start. And if you’d like additional amenities like a generator, outdoor dining set, or bikes, Just Go has them available for rent at decent prices.

Vehicles

Ultima

This 2015/ 2016 Mercedes/ VW model is completely exciting and full-packed. When it comes to flexibility, Ultima 2 berth is the standard yet most affordable option on fleet. Whether you sleep horizontally or diagonally, you will have a comfortable position at the rear bed that converts into a panoramic U-lounge during daytime. Also, you have the option to make it a double bed or two singles. The entertainment system inside is packed with LCD screen & DVD player, while the outside fun is brought to you by the exterior storage for your sport equipment. 

Ultima Plus

Just like the other Ultima model, this one is ideal for glamping/ family outing. Yep, unlike the previous unit, you can tag along your kid during your holiday because of the 1 child or booster seat fitting. As the layout is nicely designed, there's still plenty of space for a family of 3 without compromising the essentials like kitchen, toilet, shower and dinette. The extras also make this motorhome more fascinating. There's a built-in BBQ for a sumptuous Kiwi summer evening, an external table for alfresco dining, and a personal safe to deposit your valuables. 

Beach

The 4 berth Beach motorhome is designed to make your home with wheels more cozy and convenient. Stretch out comfortably with the extended living space. No need to transform the dinette into another double bed because a bed is fitted on the cab-over, allowing you to chat all day or night long at the living room. The front swivel seats can be rotated so that all four of you can dine in together. The versatility of this unit does not end there as you can also dine outside with the motorhome's awning. 

River

For a family of 6, first on the list is the River motorhome— a unit with the capacity to take the entire family on a splendid holiday. This one is particular suitable for those bringing their kids as the unit comes with child or booster seat for safety as well as complete entertainment accessories for indoor fun. The motorhome has almost the same features with the Beach model, especially with the exterior design but varies with the interior layout. This particular model comes with three double beds instead of two and does not fit a swivel front chairs because the dinette becomes an additional bed at night. 

Sunset

This Sunset motorhome caters up to 4 adults and 2 children, making it a perfect deal for touring family. The 6 berth unit is all about enough space and abundant storage designed for families. With same exterior and interior layout as the River, the Sunset still have certain aces that make it more enticing, including the bigger beds, plenty of storage areas, and entertainment set on both main and driver's cab. 

Insurance

The insurance bond/ excess is NZ$7,500, taken out of your credit card during vehicle collection. You have options to reduce the liability: add $45 for only $250 imprint and excess of $0 or $65 for only $250 imprint and excess of $0, plus unlimited tyre and windscreen cover, one way fee, child/ booster seat and more. Aside from that, you may also avail of the additional protection coverage (only if you avail a reduction option) at $99 per hire to extend the cover for damage caused from a single vehicle rollover. 

Reputation

It's true that Just Go is one of the premier companies in New Zealand but it appears that their reputation isn't as grand as Maui. Even if the company sources out high-quality units from a renowned company like Maui, this rental entity has more strict rules and sometimes absurd cash penalties. Of course, you may need extra savings for your NZ holiday because the rates are not-so-affordable, plus the insurance excess are bit pricier. 

Summary

Technically, it's practical to directly rent a unit from the supplier itself to get a taste of the distinct Maui motorhome rental. But since the larger third party books out easily, especially during peak seasons, then Just Go is a fair enough option.
