Why use DetourNZ for your campervan rental?
We consider ourselves the best travel agency offering campervan holidays in New Zealand.
However, it is not our opinion that counts so we would like you to decide for yourself if we are the best choice for your New Zealand holiday.
We’ve created a list of factors that we believe are important to find the appropriate agency to set up your trip.
We encourage you to read it and compare it with other agencies that organise rental vehicles. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you think we have forgotten any points.
We’re based in New Zealand
We’ve been based in New Zealand for a number of years and we know the country well based on our many trips around the two islands. This is an advantage if you need to contact our office once you’re here as we’re in the same time zone as you. Similarly, if you want quick information, we are here on site. We know all our providers personally, we talk to and visit them often and this relationship allows us to guarantee quality vehicles.
A team of campervan specialists
If your travel agent has never travelled in a campervan or even set foot in one of these vehicles, how can they talk about it and give you relevant information?
We have all travelled in campervans in the North Island, in the South Island, as a couple and a family. We know the small details that can make a trip successful or not.
We haven’t just experienced one or two campervans either we’ve tested many of them on day or longer trips, compared the pros and cons and now all this information is at your service.
The largest range of campervans available on one site
All campervans have different specifications and all companies offer different benefits and prices. It is therefore important for us to offer you a suitable choice based on all providers. We’re well aware that the choice is vast, so we are committed to offer you the ideal campervan to suit your needs and your budget.
In order to maintain our independence and objectivity we’ve decided to put all our partners on an equal footing. Unlike other agencies that have special agreements with certain rental companies, we prefer to offer you a vehicle according to its quality, pricing and any promotions offered at the time of booking. We will always offer you the vehicle that best suits your criteria.
The best prices and market
If you book with us we guarantee you won’t pay more than if you went directly to the rental company. To enable you to get the best market prices we search every day for the best offers available and compare them with the prices of all vehicles available for the dates of your holiday. If you find one that’s cheaper and let us know we will match the price.
Itineraries specially designed for campervan trips
An itinerary designed for a car isn’t suitable for a trip in a campervan. The advantage of the campervan is the freedom to improvise and to modify the program as you see fit, our itineraries are based on length of stay and the places to visit. You have the freedom to set your daily schedule. For example, we offer conventional itineraries which are between 16 and 22 days and between 10 and 12 stages. This approach allows you flexibility within each step depending on your preferences, weather and events.
Specific campervan products: Ferry, camping, ...
DetourNZ is the "one-stop shop” for your campervan holiday.
We can book your first and last night at a hotel, ferry crossing, your activities and your nightly camping ground. We work with the two largest networks in the country for camping and we also have an exclusive agreement with Native parks. This is a subscription that gives you access to a network of farms, campsites and private homestays where you can camp for free.
