Excellent communication with Jules and easy booking with good choice and prices. Especially as we are booking over the Christmas period. Totally recommend using them. Thank you.

Was initially a little wary of RatPack, due to the name, but with my dealings with George I am very happy with booking my camper for travel. I found a cheap quote and George went above and beyond to match as closely as possible a better all round deal. Very personable, and no hassles. I would recommend checking out RatPack if you want a stress free, value holiday in Oz, you might get lucky and have George help you out.

The Vibrant City of Auckland

Image of Auckland, New Zealand.

Auckland, fondly known as the “City of Sails,” is an urban oasis surrounded by natural beauty. As a major hub for campervan hire, it’s the perfect starting point for your New Zealand adventure. 

The city itself is rich in culture, with a thriving arts scene, world-class dining options, and lively bars and clubs in the Auckland CBD. Don’t forget to check out iconic landmarks like the Sky Tower and Auckland Harbour Bridge, or catch a ferry to explore the idyllic Waiheke Island. To make your journey even more convenient, consider visiting our Auckland branch location for all your campervan hire needs.

For families, Auckland has plenty of attractions to keep everyone entertained. Some popular activities include:

  • Visiting the Auckland Zoo, home to over 1,400 animals
  • Exploring the city’s numerous museums and galleries
  • Heading to the Scenic Coastal Farm Park for a day of fun and adventure, with opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, and picnicking

With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder that Auckland is a popular destination for campervan lovers.

Of course, one of the main advantages of hiring a campervan is the freedom to explore at your own pace. Venture beyond the city limits and discover the breathtaking landscapes of the North Island. From the rugged surf beaches of the west coast to the peaceful nature escapes in the east, a campervan rental in Auckland opens up a world of possibilities.

Surrounding Scenic Destinations

As you embark on your campervan journey from Auckland, a treasure trove of scenic destinations awaits. Head north to explore the subtropical paradise of Northland, home to ancient Kauri forests, pristine beaches, and the mesmerising Bay of Islands. Visit the picturesque Shakespear Regional Park, a coastal gem with epic walking trails, native coastal forests, and a long sandy beach perfect for a relaxing day by the Pacific Ocean. With Shakespear Regional Park situated just an hour’s drive from Auckland, it’s an ideal destination for a day trip or weekend getaway.

The Coromandel Peninsula is another must-visit destination, with its iconic Cathedral Cove and the geothermal wonder of Hot Water Beach. Continue your campervan adventure to Rotorua, a geothermal hotspot with bubbling mud pools, steaming geysers, and traditional Maori culture. Finally, don’t miss the beautiful Lake Taupō, a haven for water sports and adventure activities, surrounded by incredible natural wonders and scenic walking tracks.

To truly immerse yourself in the diverse landscapes of New Zealand, consider tackling one of the country’s exhilarating touring routes, such as the Twin Coast Discovery Highway or the wild west coast route, the Pacific Coast Highway. These routes offer a mix of coastal vistas, rural charm, and stunning natural attractions, making for an unforgettable campervan experience. With so much to explore, you’ll be spoilt for choice on your Auckland campervan adventure.

When it comes to camping in Queensland, it’s important to stick to designated camping and caravan parks in National Parks or commercial sites. Free camping or wild camping is generally not acceptable, but don’t worry, there are plenty of other options for you!

To make sure you have the best stay possible, consider staying in one of the many National Park campsites throughout the region. Some vineyards, farms, and homesteads may also allow overnight parking for free, but always make sure to get the landowner’s permission beforehand.

Choosing the Perfect Campervan for Your Auckland Adventure

Types of Campervans Available

When it comes to campervan rentals in New Zealand, there is no shortage of options. From compact models that sleep two in the back to large 6-berth campers with generous amenities like showers and Wi-Fi, there’s a campervan to suit every traveller’s needs.

Campervans in New Zealand typically run on either petrol or diesel, with diesel vehicles generally offering better fuel efficiency.

Ultimately, the perfect campervan for your Auckland adventure will depend on your personal preferences, budget, and travel requirements.

From driving safely in New Zealand to planning your route and making the most of holiday parks and camping spots, these tips will help you navigate your campervan journey with confidence and ease.

With these essential tips in mind, you’ll be well-prepared for an unforgettable campervan adventure in Auckland and beyond.

Driving Safely in New Zealand

New Zealand road sign.

Driving a campervan in New Zealand can be a thrilling experience, but it’s essential to familiarise yourself with the country’s road rules and driving tips to ensure a safe journey. One of the most important things to remember is that in New Zealand, you must drive on the left-hand side of the road. This may take some getting used to, especially if you’re accustomed to driving on the right-hand side.

It’s also crucial to carry a valid driver’s licence or International Driver’s Permit (IDP) when driving in New Zealand. If your home licence is not in English, you’ll need an IDP or an authorised translation to English. Additionally, be mindful of speed limits, which vary depending on the type of road and area you’re in. For instance, the maximum speed limit on most motorways and open roads is 100 km/h, while in suburban areas, it’s 50 km/h.

To help ensure a smooth driving experience, follow these tips:

  1. Give yourself plenty of time to adjust to the size and feel of your campervan, especially if you’re new to motorhome travel.
  2. Practice driving around the rental depot before setting off on your adventure.
  3. Don’t hesitate to ask us for any tips or guidance on operating your specific vehicle.

With a little preparation and patience, you’ll be confidently navigating New Zealand’s roads in no time, making your Zealand road trip an unforgettable experience.

Planning Your Route and Itinerary

Planning your route in New Zealand.

When orchestrating your campervan adventure in Auckland and its surrounding areas, creating a well-thought-out route and itinerary is pivotal. This will help you make the most of your time in New Zealand and ensure you don’t miss any must-see attractions or hidden gems. Start by researching popular destinations and attractions in the region and consider the type of experience you want to have, whether it’s exploring beaches, hiking through national parks, or indulging in local cuisine.

Next, map out your route and plan your stops along the way. Keep in mind the following:

  • Driving distances and time between destinations
  • Availability of campervan-friendly accommodations like holiday parks and camping spots
  • Road and weather conditions in the areas you’ll be visiting

Researching these factors will help you have a smoother driving experience and ensure the suitability of your chosen routes.

Finally, allow for some flexibility in your schedule and be prepared to adapt your plans if necessary. While it’s important to have a general plan in place, part of the fun of campervan travel is embracing the unexpected and taking advantage of new opportunities that arise during your journey. By planning your route and itinerary thoughtfully, you’ll be well-equipped to make the most of your Auckland campervan adventure.

Making the Most of Holiday Parks and Camping Spots

One of the best parts of campervan travel is the opportunity to stay in a variety of holiday parks and camping spots throughout New Zealand. These accommodations range from basic campsites with minimal amenities to well-equipped holiday parks with showers, laundry facilities, and kitchenettes. By choosing the right camping spots for your needs and preferences, you can make the most of your time in New Zealand and enjoy a comfortable, memorable experience.

To get started, research the various holiday parks and camping spots available in the areas you’ll be visiting. Look for accommodations that offer the amenities you need, as well as any additional perks or activities that may be available on-site. Consider factors such as location, price, and availability when making your selection, and be sure to book in advance if you’re travelling during peak season or to popular destinations.

Lastly, familiarise yourself with the rules and regulations surrounding freedom camping in New Zealand, as these can vary by region and council. While freedom camping can be a great way to save money and experience remote locations, it’s important to adhere to local guidelines and practise responsible camping practices. By making the most of holiday parks and camping spots, you’ll enhance your campervan experience and create lasting memories of your time in New Zealand.

Preparing for Your Campervan Hire in Auckland

Campervan hire in Auckland.

Before you embark on your Auckland campervan adventure, it’s important to ensure you have all the necessary documentation and items for a smooth and hassle-free experience. From licensing requirements to packing essentials, being well-prepared will help you avoid any potential issues and allow you to focus on enjoying your journey.

This section will highlight the key documentation and licensing requirements for campervan hire in Auckland, along with a list of essential items to pack for your trip. With these important preparations in place, you’ll be ready to hit the road with confidence and excitement.

Documentation and Licensing Requirements

Renting a campervan in Auckland involves several critical documentation and licensing requirements to be aware of. It is essential that you have a valid driver’s licence to drive a campervan in New Zealand. This is the most important requirement for driving a campervan in the country. If you’re an overseas visitor, you can use your home country’s licence for up to 12 months before needing to switch to a New Zealand licence. However, if your home licence is not in English, you’ll also need to carry an International Driving Permit (IDP) or an authorised translation to English.

In addition to your driver’s licence, you’ll need to present a valid passport or ID and a credit card when picking up your campervan rental. It’s important to arrive at the pick-up location on time and with all the necessary documents to ensure a smooth and efficient rental process. If you’re planning to pick up your campervan after a long overseas flight, it’s a good idea to get a full night’s rest before starting your journey, as driving a campervan can be a new and unfamiliar experience for many travellers.

By ensuring you have the proper documentation and licensing in place, you’ll be well-prepared for a seamless campervan rental experience in Auckland. With these requirements taken care of, you can focus on enjoying your incredible journey through New Zealand’s breathtaking landscapes and attractions.

Packing Essentials

Campervan packing essentials.

Packing for your campervan adventure necessitates having the right essentials on hand, thereby ensuring your comfort and enjoyment. While the specific items you’ll need will depend on the type of campervan you’re renting and the duration of your trip, there are a few general packing essentials that every campervan traveller should consider.

First, be sure to pack enough clothing and toiletries for the duration of your trip. This includes items like underwear, socks, comfortable shoes, and weather-appropriate clothing, as well as personal hygiene items like toothpaste, soap, and shampoo. It’s also a good idea to pack a first aid kit, insect repellent, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the elements and any potential health issues.

In addition to your personal items, you’ll also need to pack any necessary cooking supplies and food items for your campervan journey. This may include items like:

  • pots
  • pans
  • utensils
  • basic pantry staples like salt, pepper, and cooking oil

Depending on the specific campervan model you’re renting, some of these items may already be provided, so it’s essential to check with us to avoid overpacking.

With these packing essentials in place, you’ll be well-prepared for a comfortable and enjoyable campervan experience in Auckland and beyond.

Booking Your Campervan Rental in Auckland
