Here at Escape rentals we are committed to the safety and well-being of our Travellers, team members and our community.
We are working closely with the New Zealand Tourism Industry, monitoring guidelines given by The World Health Organisation and government agencies, and continuing to understand and respond appropriately to any updates as they come through. We want you to know that your health and safety will always be our number one priority!
Key Updates – Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on March 23rd that New Zealand was at Covid-19 alert level 3 rising to alert level 4 on Wednesday 23:59.
At this stage we are recommending all of our travellers to fly back home in the event of a lockdown. We also strongly suggest to our travellers to drop their camper off at either the Christchurch Depot or Auckland Depot.
Depots will be closed from 5pm Wednesday the 25th March, if you find you can’t make your way to either branch prior to our close off you need to call 0800 21 61 71 to advise the Depot and time you will be dropping to.
Thank you for your support and understand through this period.
