My girlfriend and I rented a Spaceship for 2 weeks and absolutely loved it. It was a great size for us two, easy to drive, comfortable bed, plenty of storage space. We would highly recommend renting a Spaceship :)

We rented a camper van for about 3 weeks and drove all around New Zealand, from Christchurch to Auckland. The camper van came with everything we wanted (linens, cooking equipment, lots of maps), and the people at Spaceships were really helpful and upfront about all the costs. Pickup and return were easy and quick, and as promised they didn't slap on any random fees at the end. Starting price was the final price. Car was a bit old, but our rental was super cheap so I can't complain. Great experience overall.

Spaceship rentals are awesome! Car was perfect, no issues, all the supplies i needed and so smooth to drive. The customer support they provide is really awesome too. There were some leftover supplies from other travellers i could select from promoting no waste! I felt really safe as I drove around by myself. This company has great character. Thanks!!

We rented a Beta 2S Premium van for 2 weeks to drive around the South Island and had an amazing time. The van had everything we needed for sleeping and cooking and drove really well. The staff at Christchurch were very nice and let us hang out there in the middle of our trip when we needed internet due to the crazy rainstorm that washed away the bridge between the glaciers. Amazing company, I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

Everything was really good, but the one big let down is that the luxury bed linen set was incomplete and we only had one good pillow, which wasn't great for my neck. I'm sure this was a rare mistake and we'll definitely use them again
Edit: It doesn't seem I can reply to your comment so hopefully you read this: There were two pillows but only one was luxury. Like there was a clear difference, one was a very nice pillow that was thick and fluffy and made from premium materials. The other one was thin and lumpy and offered no support, and was made from different materials, and seemed about 10 years old.

In general the experience was fine had no mechanical issue and not too many kilometers on the odometer. Nevertheless, the car was mouldy everywhere in the front. Not very pleasant to sleep in a car that has mould in it.
Edit: Yes did call them, send an email with pictures as I got told so by a customer service rep, but did not get an answer.

Great way to see New Zealand ... The beta2s Van was really comfortable, easy and smooth to drive, enough space for the two of us and gave us enough freedom to experience the country at our own pace. All the gear we needed was in the van and enough storage space for our gear too, not that we had a lot. Pick up was a little arduous in the fact they were so busy so we had over 90 minute wait, the van inside could have been a little cleaner but other than that friendly helpful staff . Loved that fact that there is the opportunity to pick up stuff left over by other travellers which helps and saves buying some basic stuff. Would definitely recommend spaceships to anyone and will definitely hire one on our next trip....

While the customer service was great, the van was poorly maintained. The first van we received had ants covering it, so they graciously swapped it out for another van. The next van we received was older, had a couple things hanging down from the underside, side paneling peeling off, and the inside quite dirty/stained. We accepted the van because it was the last one available. We drove off and within 2 hours the van slowly died. We had to stay in a small town overnight to wait and get the van repaired because it was Sunday and nothing was open to repair. They were kind enough to refund our hotel stay and a day from our van charge. Overall, the van was old and not maintained well. Spaceship would benefit from purchasing a new set of vans or thoroughly repairing the current set of vans on hand. Not worth the amount paid for the service provided. I hope others who use Spaceship have a much better experience with the van.

We rent our dream sleeper mini (eros) for 10 days to explore NZ south island. It was easy to drive and smooth. You can easily park anywhere and fit into small parking space because they are not big like normal campervan. They got gps and rear parking camera too, so it is convinient to drive.
The only downside of this car is their fuel consumption. As they already quite old, they consumed a lot of petrol. (Please note that NZ's fuel price is one of the most expensive in the world). Other than this, everything was perfect.

We made a roadtrip with Spaceships two times. One time for 2 months in Australia and one time for a month in New Zealand. We absolutely loved our trips. The cars are well maintained. The customer service was very well and it didn’t feel like they wanted to take advantage of us by charging us for small damage.

No major problems. Small things not working well in the car (Lght in the rear of the car, connexion radio/spotify). All the rest more than adequate. We highly recommend Spaceships for their courtesy, help and gracefulness.

Review by Kørv Wellons4 months ago
What was plain awesome was the full online process. The booking was smooth, the pre check-in too. Very efficient.
The vehicle itself and actual check-in was much less great. We had to wait almost an hour (with kids...) when checking in. There is info material, wifi and you can take stuff from earlier travelers for free - so not all bad, but it’s still delaying your departure. The vehicle had 380‘000 km and looked and smelled accordingly. You don‘t expect a RR or BMW for the price you pay but the advertising is definitely better than reality on these vehicles. The vehicle was really quite at the end of its life cycle, inside and outside. What was really frustrating was that at the end they charged us additionally for apparently a new scratch in the front window. The amount was ridiculous. When I said I would go and get it fixed myself, the lady said ‚you can‘t - you handed the car back‘ and wouldn‘t let me do it. Not a sign of great confidence that you are charging a fair price....overall not a great experience

We drove the Rocket, the first Spaceship campervan. It was incredible, no problem at all. It is so well equipped! The team was so nice too. We recommend this company 👍.

I have rented previously with Motorhome Republic using different companies. I found Spaceship Rental to be very helpful and reliable. I enjoyed my time travelling in their vehicle and would recommended to any to do same.
