Campervan travel in New Zealand

The main goal of travelling New Zealand in a campervan is to have as much freedom to explore as possible. You take your accommodation with you, so no need to pre-book hotel rooms or worry about the extra cost of a room each night. 

You can pull over at any point and enjoy a hot cup of tea, or find (legal) freedom camping spots in scenic locations if you’re driving a self-contained camper.  

Imagine rolling out of bed and throwing open the door of your vehicle, to step outside and greet the sun rising straight out of the ocean, or settling down for the night in a remote campsite shared only with kiwis (the birds) and a perhaps a handful of adventurous Kiwis (the people). 

You can change your plans on a whim, choosing to take the scenic detour and take the road less driven.  

The best campervan hire in New Zealand will let you do all this, and more.  

JUCY’s multiple campervan hire locations mean you can tailor your itinerary to suit your interests and time available. With the flexibility to drop your campervan off in five separate locations, you can cover an impressive amount of the country in a limited time.

Far more compact than Australia, you can pack a lot into a Kiwi Road trip. You can even travel from the snow to the surf in one day! Many travellers will plan their trip around either the North or the South Island. However, we also host a ton of keen adventurers who cover the highlights from Cape Reinga in the north of the North Island to Invercargill at the bottom of the South Island. With three JUCY branch locations and the option to travel one way (for a fee), Kiwi road trips are a breeze with JUCY.

Freedom camping

Freedom camping is a popular way to travel around New Zealand. It allows people in fully self-contained campervans to camp in some places for free. Self-contained means it can function without outside resources. There are restrictions on where people can camp and how long, and there are fines if people breach the rules. We have this dedicated Rankers page to help travellers discover where to camp legally for the night across Aotearoa.
