Latest Customer Review:

Whilst we only had 10 days to tour the North Island of New Zealand it was an experience we will never forget. Our holiday was enhanced by the first class Fiat Ducato camper-van hired through RVRentaCampervan. We have highly recommended this camper category to several of our friends who are intending to travel to New Zealand in the near future. Also thanks to Andy at RVRentals for finding us a good deal.
