About Vivo Campervans 

With space and comfort in mind, this local rental company makes sure to provide a convenient holiday the moment they meet you at the airport. Vivo Campervans may not be that well known but they are a nice substitute to large, not-so-friendly rental companies in Auckland. Accordingly, there would be more personalized rentals, customized itineraries, plus your kids can wander around their small farm with horses and livestock while you attend the short familiarization drive! But just take note that the company's rental only revolves around their highly-specialized campervans that cater families up to 6. The rates are not directed to the budget market—instead, these are close to mid-range up to high-end prices.

Fleet

Since this is a small family-owned entity, they only have a limited selection of campervans—all of which are 6 berth units with 150-horsepower diesel engine paired with a powerful six-speed automatic transmission, making it very easy to maneuver like that of an SUV. Their fleet of premium Fiat and Ducato vehicles are all under 1 year old, which is very attractive, with less wear and tear issues. Designed for comfort and fitted with all essentials, Vivo Campervans allows you to have a relaxing self-drive NZ vacation.

And to make your NZ trip as comfortable as ever, be sure to know the important freedom camping rule. With the help of this free camping tool, you'll learn specific guidelines per NZ district. 

Vehicles

6-berth Vivo Camper

The set of Vivo campervans are composed of three units of the same models based upon a Ducato Chassis, with the interiors designed by popular Benimar. The 5 campervans are diesel-powered for economy and are equipped with safety gear that includes fire extinguisher. If you are with your kids, you can request for child restraint seats. For better driving, the vehicles come with armchair style driver's seat, large rearview mirrors, and Navman GPS system. Aside from the  230v/50HZ New Zealand powered, each unit has a built-in USB charging ports.

The campervans are well fitted for a group up to six adults. Choose your own sleeping area— rear single bunk beds, cab-over double bed or sofa sleeper. A single set of duvets, sheets, and pillows are provided for your comfort. Also on board is a full bathroom with shower & toilet, including a hot water system. For kitchen needs, there's a large-sized fridge with freezer, three burner gas hob, oven, stainless steel sink with hot/ cold water options, toaster, kettle, and all other kitchen utensils. And for your entertainment, you are equipped with a satellite flat-screen TV.

Insurance

There is a security deposit of NZ$5,000, but you can reduce it to NZ$0 if you avail yourself of their Liability Reduction Insurance at NZ$40/day. If you choose not to take out the extra insurance, the NZ$5,000 deposit is fully refundable on the return of an undamaged vehicle.

Reputation

Vivo Campervans not really well known in the campervan rental industry in Auckland given their small size, but their renters so far seem very happy. With only positive reviews on our site, Rankers and Google, Vivo Campervans appears to be a pleasant replacement if you are looking for a 6 berth campervan hire but the big players don't really interest you. Vivo is small, quaint and unhip with the tough competition among other rental businesses, and religiously maintain their fleet of quality 6-berth units so you too can leave a 5-star review here at Hit The Road once you have experienced them

Summary

For a breath of fresh air from commercialized rentals, you can hire a premium 6 berth campervan with personalized rentals from Vivo Campervans.
