Customer Reviews

We've had some fantastic feedback about our motorhomes and campervans over the years. Take a look at what our happy customers have to say about us!

Erik Bern (via Facebook)

We are a family from Norway and have just finished a road trip on the southern island of New Zealand. The camper van was a Ford Transit and it was running very well and we had no issues during our 8 days on the road. Compared to other companies we paid a very reasonable price in the high season. The service and friendliness from Lynda and her teammates was outstanding and we strongly recommend the company.

We rented 2 campervans from Affordable Motor Homes during the summer of 2018/2019. We had a great experience from start to finish. The company was a delight to work with: very responsive, friendly, provided great communcation and the vans were as exactly expected. They were well outfitted, super clean, comfortable. The checkin walk thru was thorough and returns were easy and fast. Lynda was always available for questions and recommendations and provided lots of brochures and maps of the local sites. I highly recommend their company, I will certainly rent from them again without hesitation.

So this year, we returned to New Zealand, but this time, to the South Island. Each time for our visit to NZ, this is the only company we would hire a camper from. Linda and her family, are so friendly and could not be more helpful.

You absolutely get what you pay for and more, as they look after their own vans. Very few camper van/motorhome hire companies are family owned, so please always check, as a number of them are owned by huge companies and then the money does not actually stay in NZ. 

Once again, thank you Linda & family for all your patience and assistance.

We knew many camper van rental companies are available, but heard of Affordable Motor Home Rentals through a friend who recommended them. Lynda and Duncan made our first NZ camper van experience easy and fun (and affordable).

We traveled the South Island for 17 days in a 2-berth Toyota (we nicknamed "Bessie") and had a blast. Ben picked us up in downtown Christchurch, and showed us how everything worked (we are used to tent camping, so there were more moving parts than usual). Bessie had a few miles on her, but she was game for all we attempted.

Blankets and duvet were warm, beds comfortable. We had incredible weather, so except for driving we did not hang out much inside the van during the day. Our rental ended in Picton, where Lynda and Duncan met us. They were great to work with, and we recommend them highly.

We spent 16 days travelling on a campervan (Ford transit), made more than 2500km and couldn't be happier with the exceptional experience that we had with Affordable Motor Home. Excellent communication (a big thank you to Lynda who was always available and very helpful) and really good service. Their free airport shuttles were easy and efficient. I highly recommend them.

Kimberly Curtis

I booked a sleepervan to tour around New Zealand in, from March to April this year with my mum and had a great time. I thought the business was easy to deal with, helpful from the beginning and the whole way through, and felt the team did their very best to ensure that we had a good time in our van. Had no complaints with the vehicle which ran smoothly and had no nasty surprises, and Lynda was great to deal with. Thanks again Lynda and the team at Affordable.

Joy Gottermeyer

We’re used their vans in past, even had our honeymoon in one around Northland. Service was brilliant and van well equipped and ran really well. Highly recommend.

Zoe Guthrie

Absolutely loved our campervan that we hired for a week! Lynda and team are fantastic and have wonderful customer service! The van is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a road trip and we will be sure to book again with Affordable Motor Homes NZ! Thanks for everything.

 "What a great company to deal with. From the moment we made email contact till they dropped us back at the airport everything is simple, easy and efficient, and exactly as advertised. We have used Lynda's company twice (2008 and now) and it was no fluke, they know the meaning of service. The motorhomes were very clean, tidy, very well equipped, and everything worked!. Unlike many people we met with much newer and more expensive vehicles that were poorly equipped and only had problems. Our trips were both faultless. We highly recommend Lynda and Affordable Motorhomes, you won't regret it."

Gowan Family 

"Hi Lynda
Just wanted to send you a note to say Thank You for the wonderful service that we received from you and your family, it was obvious from the very start that Affordable Motor homes is a Family and that as customers we then became “family”.
Nothing was too much trouble, even to the point that it was “Our Motorhome”.
We were picked up from the Airport by yourself and taken back to the depot, on the way back we were told that we had been upgraded to the Luxury 6 berth. Thanks for that.
The motorhome was very comfortable had everything that we needed and preformed faultlessly.
Not once were we cold as the dual heating worked very well. “Considering that we were traveling in winter and got one of the best snow storms in the last few years.
Sorry to say but we will be back.
Thanks Again
Gowan Family."

Michael Kansager

"Hi Lynda.
As I wrote earlier, we really like your company. Good service and kind people. The campervan got all that we did need, and though it was not new, it did do all function very well. We for sure will come back to you at our next visit.
Kind regards,
Michael and wife"

"In februari 2013 me, (Marc),my wife Vanessa and our two boys Rik and Tom visited New Zealand for the second time.
Two years ago we travelled around on the south island with Rik who was 2 years old at that time.We had a 3 month holiday from which we spend one month in NZ We really loved the people,the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful scenery.
New Zealand has it all.
We promised ourselves to get back as this would probably be the last opportunity because Rik has to go to school.
In the meanwhile Tom was born.
So in februari we started our 7 week trip with the two boys (4y&15 months) On the internet we found the "affordable" site.
They are indeed very affordable compared to other companies.
We rented a very nice,clean and full equipped motorhome.
More than enough linen,towels etc
Also we had a microwave and a TV with DVD player (great for the kids while driving) We never had any technical problems with the camper.
It drives very easy.
Lynda and the rest of the "affordable team" were very kind and helpful.
I can highly recommend Affordable Motorhome Rentals.

Marc, Vanessa, Rik & Tom"

""Hi Lynda. I'd just like to say a big "THANK YOU" for helping so significantly to make our trip around South Island so memorable. Being picked up at our hotel and taken to your offices was the perfect start. And the way you explained everything when we picked up the motorhome was calm, accurate and easy to understand. We were absolute novices, but because of the quality of the vehicles and the instructions both verbal and written, we didn't have a single problem and everything went like a dream.
We'll be in touch when we're back and will recommend you highly to our friends that are visiting NZ soon.
Thanks again,

Aly and Bill Drain

"We picked up our campervan from Auckland on the 1st February. We had arranged it all by email on the recommendation of our friend from NZ. Lynda was on the ball right from the beginning.
Every email was responded to promptly and every question answered. We did 3500kl's and our van was faultless. We called him Freddie and were so sorry to leave him once we had got to Christchurch. We met Lynda once we had got to Christchurch and she and her daughter were as lovely as they seemed when organising our trip.

Thanks to you all! (but particularly Freddie)"

Aly and Bill travelled in a 4-Berth Connoisseur Deluxe 2005/8

Peter and Jackie Thomas

"We found Affordable Motorhomes on an internet search but from the very first e-mail contact we felt at home with the company. 

The internet booking was simple, good value and everything was explained to us as individuals. When we arrived in Christchurch we were picked up by an employee who gave us a host of useful hints and tips. The campervan was practically new, extremely well equipped and a joy to drive. 

The whole experience enhanced our visit to New Zealand and we would have no hesitation in recommending this company to our friends."

Russel Engelke

"Thanks for everything. I have found your service absolutely outstanding and so different to the norm! All up - great thanks! The kids had a ball and it was their first camper van experience - complete with DVD player!! 

Thanks for wonderful customer serve - right through!"

Dave and Jeannie

"We found the service and campervan provided by Affordable Motorhome to be very good. 

The ability to collect the van at one location and leave it at another was a huge help. The van was in good condition and served us well during our 4000 km trip around both the North and South islands. Accommodation was comfortable and we had all amenities to hand, on which full instruction was given beforehand. 

All in all Affordable Motorhome helped to enhance a wonderfully memorable holiday in New Zealand. We look forward to doing so again sometime." 

Jane Krik Pointer and Family

"We can't say enough about our wonderful experience. 

We put over 1300 miles on our very comfortable motorhome. The vehicle ran very well and was mechanically sound throughout. It was nice to always know we could reach you with a toll free phone call if we had questions or concerns. Lynda was absolutely fantastic to work with to arrange for pick-up and drop-off of the camper. 

Our boys were so taken by our coach that they did not want to give it up. Thank you for helping to make New Zealand a trip of a lifetime."

Grant and Lisa Robertson

"We have just returned from a week in the South Island and would like to pass on our sincere thanks to the team at Affordable Motorhome Rentals in Christchurch! 

We rented a 2000 Economy series, 6 berth motorhome - and it was fantastic! Comfortably fit 2 adults and our 4 children - and we will never rent a 'car' again. Travelling was so much easier in the motorhome! Fully equipped with linen, plates, towels, fridge, oven, heaters, tv etc and I kid you not, fuel efficient! This motorhome is cheaper to run than our car, and does more kms! 

The motorhome was easy to drive and ran perfectly! My sincere thanks to you Lynda and the rest of the team - you are wonderful! You made everything simple, looked after us extremely well and accommodated all our needs."

Kevin, Vicki and Kyala Fothergill

"We recently had our first campervan holiday in NZ where we picked up a 6 berth Affordable Motorhome in Christchurch and travelled down the South Island to our skiing destination in Queenstown. 

We did a lot of research before booking with a company and after discussions with Lynda at Affordable we were convinced this was the way to go. Nothing was ever too hard for them, their service was outstanding, always helpful and informative.

The van ran very well and always started despite being snowed in one morning! The van was well equipped for a comfortable holiday, thanks heaps for the extra heater! 

Have no hesitation in recommending Affordable to anyone who would venture that way."
