Small and friendly rental company. Excellent van.
The team at Wendekreisen in Auckland was just amazing. Upon checking in, they spent time to go through everything and ensure we were all confident with our new home. The quality/price ratio is great and the support team was amazing. They went above expectations when we were late returning due to traffic jam and waited for us. They even dropped our daughter’s favorite blankie back at the hotel we were staying as we had forgotten it: simply excellent service from a dedicated team!
Wonderful road trip …in a wonderful country and so friendly people ….. the ideal way to travel in New Zealand , easy to park everywhere and always with a friendly welcome
I searched on FB for a campervan company in NZ and found this.. I messaged for advice and was sent sooo much information and could not have planned my trip without it! Thanks so much for your help, advice and helping us book our dream trip!
We recently returned home from a short trip to New Zealand’s North Island and I want to make sure the folks at Wendekreisen are recognized for their kindness and whole heartedly recommend them to anyone seeking their service. We booked a camper van ahead of time not knowing that by the time we arrived we would be too sick to camp! The morning we were to pick up the camper we walked to the office in Mangere to let them know we would not be picking up our camper that day but hopefully the next. Arti was so kind and suggested a nearby pharmacy to try for some over the counter meds and assured us the camper would be ready when we were. We spent the day taking medicine, drinking fluids and trying to rest. The next day we were not much better. After arriving back at Wendekreisen that next morning we had determined that we should not be camping while sick and asked to change from a camper to a car. Sila was helping us this morning and she dialed the number for her supervisor and let us plead our dilemma. After a short wait the main office called back to ok our switch. Sila informed us that the car had to be cleaned and that we should go to the doctor. Michele drove us to the doctor and dropped us off. After picking up our prescriptions for the FLU, we called Sila back and she had Steve come pick us up. Who does this? Wendekreisen does!!! Shortly we were on our way and ended up getting better every day but our trip could have been ruined had it not been for the staff at this company. Thank you so much Sila,Arti,Michele and Steve we will never forget you guys or your kindness. Thanks Shana Hall and Larry Pitts
Wow. We rented a campervan for a little over two weeks in February/March 2019 and had zero, and I truly mean ZERO issues. The van was perfectly stocked, easy to drive, and SO cute. It was fun to wave to other Mad Campers on the road!! We also loved the way the back door opens up – we took full advantage of backing up to gorgeous views and enjoying a book, some lunch, or some wine. Customer service was lovely as well, we had a small rock chip in the windshield and they made it so easy for us to resolve the issue. Our time in New Zealand was an absolute dream, I can’t wait to do it again and we will certainly be using a Mad Camper!!
We had a wonderful time in our freedom vehicle. Didnt need to plug to campsites and stayed warm in the NZ winter. All tops, it was great. Highly recommend these guys.
Got a britz camper and it was rather expensive for what we got. Also insurance is not covering a lot. Not bad but dare and impersonal.
Rented a 4 bed camper at Apollo. Nothing fancy but functional. Didnt like all the extra charges and they are big company. Customer care was also average. We paid too much.
Had a few issues but were sorted although had to go to Queenstown- only three places you can so be aware. The only thing was the gps was not great and WiFi waste of time could only use when vehicle running as didntvhokd chsrge either which defeats the point of having one! Easy to drive and everything you need. You don’t beef to check into powered site every two days unless you want to use all the electrical stuff if happy with free sites and free dump stations then no issue. We bought the DOC pass and worth every penny plus liked idea of giving back as footpaths loos etc are generally fab. All but off the track but worth it and you definitely need a good map or gps to find them. All in all a fabulous trip can’t wait to return.
Had a mighty double up for our 3 week holiday. They belong to the biggest and we got the feeling of mass tourism at their branch. Was alright but still very expensive. The vehicle was somewhat ok.
We travelled in a Kiwi Autohome and had no complaints. The vehicle could have been newer but it ran well and the service was good.
We had a Wilderness Motorhome and can highly recommend. Five stars well deserved.
We chose Wendekreisen for our 4 week holiday. When we booked they had just started to advertise the Kora Star Freedom which we took. The camper didnt need power at all and we managed to stay on DOC sites for the entire time. Great vehicle and a friendly team. Highly recommended
Top vehicle for a budget. The interior was spotless and worked very well. Better than expected !
Bardzo fajny Motorhome. Moze lekko wyeksploatowanych, ale niezawodnie sluzyl w podrozy po NZ. Polecam.
We had a budget 4 motorhome from Wendekreisen. Can only recommend them, the vehicle drove well and the interior was in very good con. Loved it and the price was also sharp. Highly recommend this company.
My boyfriend and I had spent our time with MAD2 for 11 days in South island, it was a fantastic and memorable experience for us! It was our first time staying in a small van with all our belongings, we was worried at first but it turns out just perfect! And they provided every basic basic things that you’ll need., there’s really nothing to worry about! The staffs are nice, friendly and helpful, they answered all my questions patiently and provided all the informations that we needed. Thank you Mad Campers, we had a real great time in New Zealand! Sad to leave our little home on the last day, but we hope to see you soon!
Amazing company. Had a great time in their neat little van. Combines convenience of travelling and parking wherever you want with all the facilities you need (fridge, water, sink, storage, music, really good usb charging compatible with fast charging). No issues with the van at all – it had 150k kilometers on the clock but handled very well and was fun to drive! Hannah and the team saved our bacon when I left my liscence at home and it was held up in customs. Hannah spent a couple of hours researching ways to get us on the road and we got away on time! Really pleased with their excellent customer service. The mad challenge is also really fun and a good way to get some money back!
We had an amazing experience with Mad Campers. We hired a MAD2 for 2 weeks, their customer service is the best I’ve ever experienced with a company. From my initial enquiry, booking, pick up and drop off, everything was explained clearly and in a friendly manner. You can tell the company really care that you enjoy your visit to New Zealand. This is our first time staying in a camper (we usually camp in a tent), but we are truly converted and now looking at possibly buying a van to convert ourselves! The van looked like new on this inside, everything is thought through really well. It was so easy to put the bed up and down that we put it away every day to have the sofas, then popped it back out just before bed. The roof box held our 2 wheelie suitcases and there was enough storage to keep our clothes inside, which was great. We hired the canopy and would really recommend this. It easily popped on the back and meant we could cook in the kitchen in the evening without being attacked by bugs. It also gave us protection from the rain and wind (we only had bad weather for a couple of days, but having this protection so we could cook comfortably without getting wet was fab). The second battery is a great idea. Being able to charge our mobiles and keep the fridge cold (without worrying about the battery of the van) was excellent. Overall a fantastic experience. We just wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks Mad Campers!
My husband and I spent one week traveling the North Island in a Mad Camper van and we just loved it! It was our first experience in a camper van and I think that Mad Campers was the best company we could have chosen. The van was perfect, it had everything we needed. We loved the car, the kitchen, the fridge. Also, the bed was perfect for us, and we are both tall. Thank you Mad Campers for this amazing experience
From the moment i picked up my Mad Camper i was happy with the assistance in helping me start my journey in New Zealand after spending 17 days with the van i was extremely impressed with the comfort an functionality. The van handled the driving perfectly an never had any mechanical issues. Sleeping in the van was alot more comfortable then what i was expecting an the kitchen set up is awsome with everything you need for a camping trip. Will definitely go to Mad Campers for my next trip.
We hired a caravan from MCRent Christchurch and traveled with it for two weeks. On our way a rock from the road broke our windshield and we made a small hole in the table by accident. We were more then wiling to pay the damage but when we got to their office they decided to charge us for the illogical price of 920 NZ dollars for the windshield (and they probably have insurance to pay for that kind of damage and) and 1265 NZ dollars for the tiniest hole in the table which obviously they can repair just by replacing the upper wood layer for no more then 200 dollars. After we told them it’s too much the women in the office gave us the phone of the manager. We tried to call him repeatedly and email him but he did not answer and all we got is emails from one of his workers who avantually just stoped responding. Their customer service is almost non existing, we had a problem with the water pump in the middle of the trip which wasn’t our fault and we had to wait 2 days in Wanaka and delay our trip until we got someone to fix it and we had to speak with the plumber ourselves And drive to his house because they were handling it like we had 3 month in New Zealand. They took edvantage of the fact that we had to fly home and had no time to handle it. Overall very poor choice of caravan company! Be careful
Had a 2-berth van for 28 days from NZ campervan rentals. They are a bunch of lovely people and we thoroughly enjoyed the camper ! Highly recommended.
As we decided to visit New Zealand quite spontaneously, we didn’t have so much time to prepare or book everything like we would like to. We struggled to find any good trusted company to hire our dream camper van as at that time was everything booked by somebody else. We were so lucky to find Adventiv company, the communication with the owner was outstanding from the start to the end, he gave us so many useful information not just about the camper van we hired. The actual camper van (Nissan NV200) was very well cleverly made, we hired it for 6 weeks, travelling North and South Island around, never let us down, it bacame as a part of our family 🙂 It was an automat and very easy to drive. It had an extra battery for proper fridge, which was very very useful! The others had just a little cooling box, so they couldn’t buy anything to store like we could. I would definitely recommend this company! We had an amazing holiday in New Zealand and big part of it was to have this excellent camper van! Thanks!
Very good personal experiance with Sunrise.
