We have rented multiple times from Walkabout, and always to our full satisfaction. The vehicles are technically in a very good condition, and well looked after. Rental prices are fair, bed linen and towels are plentiful, and chairs and a table come free with the rental. Another advantage of Walkabout is that they do not try to seduce you to book additional insurance, as most is covered by the general travel insurance each well-thinking traveller already has. Their friendly team always makes you feel welcome to their beautiful country. We recommend them highly.

We looked at several companies and it was hard to make a decision for march 2018 and we chose walkabout because they had the big six berth motorhome - we booked it for 46 days and upon arrival picked up from airport , received free chairs and table and we were given a full explanation of vehicle we had no diesel tax to pay it was clean and tidy and included everything , staff were friendly .would use again in a couple of years when we return to nz

Review by Eala Venieris2 years ago
Paid them more than $15K for a two-month motorhome rental in NZ, only to get billed an extra +$1700 for a small dent in the roof.
Not only that, more than 1.5 months has passed from the end of my rental and they still haven't returned the mere $267 left from the security deposit...
Unbelievably bad service!
What they wrote in the reply are just a bunch of lies. I returned the motorhome clean and parked nose first. "damage" was on the front, not on the rear, and I didn't try to cover anything. I didn't even see that small dent. The motorhome was 6 years old and when it was raining water was dripping from the back vent, I told Shane (the owner) about it when I returned the motorhome so he billed me for that also instead of apologizing.
You are right about me saying we had a great trip in NZ, we are on a year-long trip around the world and we always have fun, even if we do business with a company that only know how to take money.
You didn't even bother to reply to my SMSs and emails as I'm still waiting to get the remainder of my security deposit.

Little company with some very friendly and helpful people.
We were picked up at the airport hotel in our rental car, so I could get a feel of it on our way back to the depot. Here we had a good talk about how everything worked in the car, and of we went. :-)
We returned the car 5 weeks later, and was driven back to the airport.
Good service all the way from Walkabout.
I would recommend them. :-)

What a great company and a big thanks to Shane !! We were delayed flying in and didnt arrive till 7:30pm , Shane stayed at the office till then and then picked us up from the airport . We had a family of six with 4 children/teens. the camper itself was perfect and had everything you needed , just fill the fridge and go . Shane gave us some good tips about were to stay and some things to see.
All in all would recommend this company to anyone and everyone and when we are back for our next trip I wont be going any where else .
Thanks walkabout !!! The Jacksons

From beginning to end, it was a joy to deal with Walkabout Motorhome Rentals NZ. They had a great website which gave me just the info I needed and an easy way to reserve the perfect motorhome. In confirmation emails, Nolene was so friendly and answered my numerous questions and concerns so completely, even giving me info on how to save money on the insurance part of the rental. When we arrived, Shane picked us up at our hotel, giving us some tutored practice in driving before we headed out on our own. The overview of the motorhome, together with all the policies, vehicle and itinierary suggestions and how-to's was very complete. He even armed us with info about motorhome parks and maps for the drive. Our motorhome was obviously well taken care of... it worked perfectly and we felt very safe. The home was spacious and clean. AND it gave us tons of miles for each gallon of fuel. We were pleasantly surprised. The return was so easy. Shane met us on his day off, helped us gather all our belongings, and transported us to the airport. It was the best experience ever! When we return to New Zealand, we will surely contact Shane and Nolene. Great great great vacation! Thanks!

This was our 9th trip to New Zealand. In previous years, we always rented with a different company, but as that company was no longer in business, we turned to Walkabout. And we have not regretted it!! We had booked a 4-berth, but were given a 6-berth instead, without any extra charge. Bed linen and towels were plentifull, and the whole campervan was well equipped. The reception at Christchurch was very friendly, as was the drop-off in Auckland five weeks later. We will definitely "go Walkabout" on our next trip to NZ!
Review by Youlanda Korcak5 years ago
Excellent service from booking through to airport pick-up/drop off and swift return of deposit.
6 berth Mitsubishi Fuso may have seemed overkill for a party of 4. However, for our needs it was perfect. Well fitted out and in excellent condition. Fully equipped and ready to go, just bring your toothbrush.
Very competitive prices, will definitely use again if we get the chance.

We have spent a great time in NZ traveling in the motorhome during 3 weeks, and Walkabout made it possible. The camper was in good condition and spacious which was great and appreciated. Thanks to Noelene and her team we have been enjoying our trip very much!
Review by Calico5 years ago
Walkabout were excellent to deal with, prompt, competitive rates, excellent insurance option. Picked up from our airport hotel, good run down on the 2 berth Fiat operations we hired and most important the van ran like a dream. Beds were comfortable, economical to drive and a trouble free holiday! This is our third visit to NZ and we had a great relaxing time! Would recommend toour family and friends. Laurie

It was the best trip we ever had with the family. And the big Walkabout Motorhome was a important part of this. It startet with the perfect service. Our flight, was delate - Shane waitet for us. The flight back was early in the morning - we could give the Motorhome back without problems. The Motorhome itself is well equiped you need only your personal things and there is enough space for the baggage. But the best for a family with three children is: that one can sit in the driver cabin and two have their own bank so it is very relaxing for the driving time.
We enjoyed this very much. Thank you.

Review by Orrington5 years ago
Just returned home, after nearly 5 weeks with one of Walkabouts large Mitsubishi motorhomes,
Excellent, by return mails when booking over the net,
Only hiccup was my flight being 2 hours late into Auckland, but Shane collected us within minutes,and looked after us well,
only one brake light bulb, in near 6000 kms done,,
One of the best deals around, plus the security deposit returned within 48 hours, when vehicle returned
Very much hope to return sometime soon. and will without hesitation, be using Walkabout again,
Guys,, Thank you very much, was a total pleasure

We have booked our camper for 17days. The vehicle was new and pleasure to drive.
Unfortunately we had a 7hr flight delay which we were afraid of missing out our camper collection. We informed Walkabout about this via email and also called them to check whether someone can still be available although after hours and we were told that they could still deliver the camper. Noelene also sent us an sms when we arrived which was a relief! Alistair was kind enough and also waited for us due to this delay.
Some other hickups that we experienced during the rental period was easily sorted by Walkabout. Excess was refunded in 48hrs.
A very reliable company and we look forward to choose Walkabout in the future.

We booked our holiday at very late notice due to my husbands work.. Walkabout were very accommodating and always answered my emails promptly. I would definitely recommend them. The motorhome was in great condition and any issues we found were noted by the company so we were not charged. Best way to see new zealand is in a motorhome. THANKS walkabout we will be back!!!
Review by BigSteve5 years ago
We had a twenty day stay in New Zealand in a six berth motorhome everything, went to plan.We chose that style because of the three seats in the front making it possible for our three year old grandson to travel up front with us, he loved it, best seat in the house. We were met at the airport even though it was outside normal times, our flight did not land till 1700 so by the time we had cleared customs etc it was 1800.
We had one problem, we lost the inside lighting on one side after plugging in a faulty bit of kit, an email the next morning produced a prompt reply and we were able to locate and replace the broken fuse.
The return of the vehicle was troublefree and we were dropped off at the airport.
All in all a good experience, the web site is easy to use and questions answered quickly. Thoroughly reccomended, we would use Walkabout again.
And by the way New Zealand was pretty good too.

From hotel pick-up with the motorhome, unexpected up-grade (from 4-6 beth for the 2 of us), great vehicle that handled well, to convenient drop-off at the airport, we were most happy with the services of Walkabout. And special thanks to Shane's helpfulness. Walkabout made the already wonderful experience in NZ even more memorable.

We have used Walkabout on 2 separate occasions 4 years apart each time renting a 6 berth camper for a month. Service was fantastic with great communication prior to the trips, the mitsubishi campers are great not underpowered yet reasonably good on juice. Very comfortable living space and well equipped. Of major importance when hiring long term and on a busy adventure type holiday are the beds in our opinion and the large double in these units is great. Walkabout offer a great deal on insurance which actually makes them cheaper than some of the competition when you cost alternative companies. Pick ups and drop offs at start and end of trip are usefull and i would not hesitate to use again if we get the chance to revisit NZ.
Highly recommended well run company, we would not even shop around if going back just use Walkabout they are great.

Review by CustomerMother6 years ago
Thank you so much for your hospitality. We chose to drive an RV around New Zealand instead of driving a car and staying at Hotels because there were 6 of us in our party. If we had stayed at hotels, we would have had to reserve 2 rooms each spot. However, with Walkabout, we were able to sleep comfortably in our 7 passenger vehicle. Being able to explore the beautiful terrain of New Zealand could not have gone any better. Walkabout even helped us map out our path because we only had 8 days to spend in New Zealand. And we barely scratched the surface, but EVERYWHERE we went was completely worth it. Thank you again to Shane, who answered every call and Walkabout who answered every email to help us on our adventure. I would definitely go with Walkabout again for any future visits.
Review by KrysKosedaTanktheVIIIth6 years ago
The motorhome was a brand new fiat 2 berth which had a superb layout allowing us to keep the bed made up. It was comfortable, economical and a little bit different from the hundreds of other white motormhomes we saw and we felt privileged. The service we received from Alistair in Christchurch who picked us up from the airport was excellent and very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Will be using again.
