New Zealand Frontiers is a smaller motorhome rental company that focuses on quality, personalized motorhome rentals―and numerous positive reviews can back it up. For many years, this Auckland-based motorhome hire competitively rents out their 2-berth motorhomes.
The personal touch sets New Zealand Frontiers apart from the other motorhome rental companies in the country. As a relatively small business owned by one man, the company is truly a frontier when it comes to bringing a whole lot of experience for couples wanting a tailored road trip. Nothing is more important than enjoying what you paid for, and that’s the company’s goal in every campervan hire. Everything is downright personal, starting with their clean and well-equipped motorhomes down to their reliable 24-hour assistance.
Offering a range of late Ford Transit Deluxe Motorhomes, couples or two buddies are the best persons who will appreciate the company’s limited fleet. That being said, you need to leave your kids at home. The 2-berth motorhomes are immaculately painted in white with some advertising featured on the sides. These run on a diesel engine, which is way cheaper than petrol if you are in NZ, so, you’ll save heaps of money on fuel consumption. And as tidy as the motorhome’s exteriors, the interiors are also fitted with everything under the sun—12v power supply outlet, air-conditioner, kitchen sink, overhead cabinets, and many more. And before we forget, each motorhome comes with a shower and toilet, so definitely a comfy trip on wheels.
And to make your NZ trip one for the books, know and understand the rules of each district before you hit the road. Here's a nice NZ freedom camping tool that redirects you to specific websites of different areas in the country.
With only one motorhome style, the company has all the reasons to bring out the best in each vehicle. The personal touch is pretty apparent with the interiors despite the older models on selection. They certainly don’t look like older models because all are well-maintained and run like new. To begin with, the motorhomes are spacious enough, but not super big vans to drive around the scenic NZ roads. The fancy yet efficient layout is also serious charm. For instance, you don’t need to get out of the car because there’s easy access from the driving seat to the living area. The ‘fully-equipped’ kitchen truly live up to its description as it comes with nice features such as microwave, gas stove, refrigerator and anything you need for a nice cooking session on the road. You don’t even have to spend a bit on the picnic table with folding chairs because these are for free. Not only that, there’s a vacuum cleaner, radio/ CD player and GPS.
And at the end of the day, you can have a nice shower with some hot water before going to bed. And the bed? It’s nothing ordinary, really. It’s a 1.95 x 1.73m bed, which means you have all the space at the rear to roll around after an exhausting yet fulfilling NZ road trip.
At no extra cost, the comprehensive insurance coverage is included in the daily rate. However, that entails a $NZD 2,500 excess, which could further reduced to zero by paying an additional fee of $NZD 25 daily. With the zero excess option, you will have a carefree road trip, which includes coverage for tyre and windscreen.
A frontrunner when it comes to a small family business providing excellent customer care, New Zealand Frontiers has continuously delighted travellers from different parts of the world with their personalized service and well-equipped motorhomes. Previous customers appreciate how the team would treat each traveller as part of the family. Even before the rental, they will nicely explain all the ins and outs so that you will not head off without knowing everything about the camper, something often missed in other rental companies. And as inevitable as it is, there may be minor glitches and accidents on the road, but the team, especially the owner is just a call away. The motorhomes may cost a little more than others on the road, but with such kind of service, it’s totally worth it.
New Zealand Frontiers may be small but it is a customer-friendly business that gives them the edge compared to bigger motorhome rentals in the country. The wealth of experience, which is pleasantly extended to each renter, makes them a reliable company worth a try. But of course, the goodness is just limited to travellers in duo.

My wife Joyce and I booked our trip to New Zealand in August 2019 and Kenrick was most helpful from the start, providing lots of useful information for us as first time visitors to NZ and motor home users. He gave us tips about our entry into NZ as well as recommending alternative interesting ways of seeing the country. We booked a comprehensive package and were very pleased with the quality of the van and the way it was kitted out. Kenrick collected us from our hotel and took us to his headquarters to collect the van. He gave us a thorough "tour" of the van and all its facilities and gave us the "low down" on driving and road etiquette in NZ. After taking over the van, we only needed a supply of groceries before we were ready for our trip.
We had no problems with the van on what turned out to be a shortened trip due to Covid-19! We had to leave NZ at short notice half way through our trip and Kenrick was instrumental in getting us to the airport on time and at a very early hour of the day. He did this most willingly, for which we are very grateful.
We have no hesitation in recommending New Zealand Frontiers if you wish an interesting and trouble free camper van holiday in New Zealand.
We cannot fault our experience with New Zealand Frontiers and Kenrick.
We found the company through researching the internet once we had booked our flights. We came across so many positive comments about the service received that we decided to give them a go. We were not disappointed!
The costings were clear and Kenrick promptly answered any questions we had.
During our planning of our itinerary, Kenrick gave us advice on timescales, where to go and what to expect. He even booked our ferry tickets for us.
When we landed at Auckland, Kenrick kindly collected us from the airport and went through all the paperwork before dropping us off at our hotel.
Kenrick provided us with everything we needed in the van. We loved it!
We definitely recommend New Zealand Frontiers to anyone planning a roadtrip round New Zealand!
We’ll be back again in the future and will be getting back in touch with Kenrick to book our van again!
