Editors Review

Walkabout Rentals is unique in that they offer luxury campervans for hire at rates that place them in the midrange market. If you’d like to be pampered on the road but don’t want to break the bank Walkabout Rentals is worth your consideration – but there is a catch. Read this review of Walkabout Rentals to learn more.

The catch is that the vast majority of campervans for hire at Walkabout Rentals are early model vehicles – most having been manufactured between 2007 – 2009.

Is this a problem? Well, that depends.

If you’re worried about dependability, don’t be. These are good, reliable vehicles. The entire range of campervans for hire from Walkabout Rentals are well-maintained to ensure that you can trust them out on the road. Plus, every campervan that heads out on holiday from Walkabout Rentals is covered by 24/7 roadside assistance. In other words, dependability isn’t a problem.

What might be a problem is the fact that, as these are early model vehicles, they don’t feature all the bells and whistles of the newest campervans for hire in New Zealand. The campervans at Walkabout Rentals are nice, no question. They’re just no longer on the cutting-edge.

Their Mitsubishi Fuso 4 and 6 berth motorhomes bring a lot of luxury on the road: remote central locking, electric windows, air conditioning, shower and electric flush toilet, microwave, fridge, gas range, and LCD TV – just to name a few.

The Transit 4/5 berth available at Walkabout Rentals is comparable in luxury features as its larger sibling, but this vehicle goes the extra mile for eco-friendliness by offering solar as one of its energy options.

So these are nice vehicles; they’re just not the newest vehicles out there. Whether or not that’s a problem depends on what you’re looking for in a campervan.

One other thing to keep in mind: The entire fleet of campervans for hire at Walkabout Rentals operate on 5 and 6 speed transmissions. You’ll want to keep that in mind if you have trouble driving a manual.

Aside from the actual campervans for hire Walkabout Rentals offers extras like unlimited kilometers, free transit to airports and hotels, no credit card fees or diesel road taxes, and – maybe coolest of all – free wifi on your campervan. That way you can update Facebook in real-time with pictures from your holiday to make all the folks back home jealous!

Overall, Walkabout Rentals is worth a try if you’re looking for luxury on a budget and don’t mind experiencing that luxury in a slightly older campervan.
