Can you sleep anywhere in a campervan in New Zealand? Is freedom camping allowed?

Freedom camping is generally permitted in New Zealand. However, while allowed, it is strictly regulated. Rules and guidelines must be followed at all times and can vary depending on the area and any council bylaws (local laws) that may apply.

In general, to freedom camp anywhere in New Zealand, your vehicle must have a self-containment certification.

If you are unsure of the rules that apply in a specific area, it is best to visit the nearest i-SITE (visitor information centre) and ask about any local regulations or bylaws.

Can I pick up my campervan in the South Island and drop it off in the North Island or vice versa?

Yes, many companies have depots in both the North and South Islands and allow one-way trips.

If planning this type of trip, you will need to pay the cost of the ferry. Our support team can help with your booking.

Additional one-way fees may apply. The comparison tool will automatically factor this into your total.

Are one-way campervan rentals possible in New Zealand?

Yes, a large number of rental companies allow for one-way rentals.

One-way rentals may not be available between all routes, and additional fees apply, depending on the pickup and drop-off locations. Our comparison tool will automatically factor in any additional fees and show you which vehicles are available on your preferred route.

Can I bring my pet with me when renting a campervan?

There are a number of pet-friendly campervan rental companies in New Zealand that allow you to travel with your dog or cat. Approval must be obtained in advance and this will usually incur a fee to cover the extra cleaning cost. Contact our support team to check if it’s possible to take a pet on board a specific vehicle.

How long should I plan for a motorhome holiday to the South Island?

A good idea is to plan for a minimum of 7 days. However, even a 2- or 3-week road trip around the South Island will easily be filled.

Popular attractions include Mount Cook, UNESCO-designated Fiordland National Park with Milford Sound, Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier, and the adventure capital of Queenstown.

Does my campervan rental come with unlimited mileage?

Yes, unlimited kilometres are generally included for standard vehicle rentals in New Zealand. The comparison tool will show you whether your preferred vehicle has unlimited or restricted kilometres.

Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.

Attractions

Popular Attractions on the South Island

Church of the Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo

The Church of the Good Shepherd was the first church built in the Mackenzie Basin, in 1935, and it serves as a memorial to early pioneers of the region.

Due to the views of the Southern Alps, Lake Tekapo is a favourite stop for many travellers to the South Island.

Lake Matheson

Lake Matheson sits just 7.4 miles from Fox Glacier surrounded by an ancient forest of rimu and kahikatea trees. Māori people used this spot as a mahinga kai (food gathering place).

Milford Sound

Milford Sound is, perhaps, New Zealand’s most famous tourist attraction, despite being one of the country’s least explored corners until the 20th century.

Carved by ice age glaciers, Milford is a proper fiord – an inlet of the Tasman Sea.

Queenstown

Queenstown is known for being a winter holiday destination, but it offers attractions year-round.

In winter, enjoy the ski-fields and breathtaking alpine views, while in the summer take in the long sunny days and relaxed atmosphere of the area.
