Getting The Best Deal On Your Motorhome Hire Dunedin

Exploring Dunedin and its neighbouring cities mean being surrounded by jaw-dropping natural landscapes and beaches and endless Instagram photo opportunities.
Before you book a Dunedin campervan hire, there are a few things to consider to ensure your New Zealand road trip is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Firstly, work out your budget and intended length of stay. The amount of time you're spending in Dunedin will dictate which type of camper will be suitable for your trip. Will you be staying a while in the Southern Scenic Route within Dunedin city limits, or willing to come over to Brighton Beach some kilometres south outside the city? For a short weekend road trip, a two-berth vehicle could be a quality, cosy option. If you're planning a six-week trip or travelling with the whole family, you'll want a more significant campervan rental for optimum comfort and space.

Campervan rental Dunedin - Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to rent an RV in Dunedin?

The cost of a campervan hire in Dunedin NZ can vary greatly and must not be compared to other popular locations like Auckland/ Christchurch/ Queenstown, as prices depend on the suppliers serving that location and the types of vehicle. You can expect to pay a lower rate per day for a small van sleeping two adults than a larger motorhome during busy times.

To find the Dunedin motorhomes that suit your budget, use our search engine and filter the results of all our campervans to limit the price range you target.

Can you park anywhere in a campervan NZ?

Freedom camping or parking anywhere is not available in NZ. There are some locations that allow parking and camping without cost, in a fully self-contained vehicle, with the rules being set by the local and regional councils governing such places. Some of these freedom camp spots/ holiday parks are usually marked with signs; the local tourist information centres have more details and suggestions. There are lots of low-cost camping sites and holiday parks around the country operated by the Department of Conservation. If you intend to freedom camp where possible, make sure that you book an appropriate self-contained motorhome for your New Zealand road trip.

What to know before hiring a campervan?

Most commonly, rental periods are based on calendar days; it means that the day you pick up and the day you drop off the vehicle are both counted as rental days. The one who books or the renter is also considered the primary driver. A small number of brands or suppliers will rent to drivers aged 18-20 years old, although there is likely to be limited availability for these in Dunedin. Most will allow renters aged 21 and over, while some will charge extra fees for renters under the age of 25. A regular driver's licence, with no heavy vehicle qualifications, is required. International visitors may use their home licence for up to 12 months in New Zealand; if such document is not in English there should be an NZ - accredited translation to be brought during the entire rental period.
