Tyler Hesselmans | June 2023

My friend and I rented an Escape van for a quick 10 day trip throughout the lower half of the South Island. The van was clean and in perfect condition; without any mechanical issues along the way. The tour of the van and review of our details during the pickup in Christchurch was a straight…

David Morris | May 2023

Loved our Escape campervan! The unique exterior made it really feel like our van for the five weeks we had it. I think the van was a great size. Easy to drive, but still plenty of space in the bed for me to fit even though I’m 6’5″. Having the ability to cook and clean…

Eileen R | May 2023

I cannot recommend Escape Rentals enough! Very easy and straightforward pickup, not trying to talk you into any extras, very easy return process as well and also super reasonable with wear and tear. The staff was super friendly and always just a phone call away for any questions. I was soooo comfortable in this van,…

Janneke Strebus | February 2023

Definitely recommend Escape Rentals! We travelled for almost 5 weeks with our ‘Cook Strait’ campervan. And we loved it. Already missing our van. Why we recommend this Campervan?1) We are pretty tall (>1,80m) and the bed is 2,10m L x 2,00m B. So we slept really good, the matras is soft as well.2) Because the…

Elani Williams | October 2022

Wow! What an amazing trip! This Van was incredible and took us to the most beautiful places with no problems! Terry was awesome and so helpful! I highly recommend booking your Van here! The bed and space was perfect! It drove wonderfully, and when we needed to hook up to powered site to keep warm,…

Tessa Mapoles | October 2022

Our group had an amazing experience booking 2 vans through Escape Rentals, the entire trip we had zero complaints! The experience started off great with the general manager (we believe his name was Abraham?) offering really helpful tips and advice for our trip, all while being very friendly! The vans themselves were perfect too, there…

Jacob Munson | September 2022

Great experience with Escape, which was the perfect introduction not only to Aotearoa – New Zealand, but also to Van-life! The van had just about everything you could need with the hire of a couple extra items (relatively low-cost for these too), and the place is being run tremendously well! Lots of great designs on…

Maine Nooroa | March 2022

This was our second time hiring from Escape Campervan Rentals Christchurch. Great price for our needs and best way to see the beautiful south island. Terry is THE MAN!!! So helpful, very professional and accommodating. Very thorough and provided great service. Will definitely be using again on our next trip. Highly recommend! We will miss…

Jeremie bouin | December 2019

We rented a campervan with Escape for about a month. We had such a great experience. The campervan was comfortable and equipped with everything that we needed (and even more). The design is also very cool (ours was with frogs). Both the crews at pickup and drop off were super nice, giving us all the…

Alice Carty | January 2020

Wow! Thanks Escape Auckland for a great holiday! Kosmik (our van) was perfect for us (2) and had surprisingly goohandling so it was great and easy to drive! We took it around loads of the North Island in our 2 weeks and would happily hire from Escape again! Thanks for a seamless hire!

Léa Tirolf | May 2020

We rented a van via Frogz-in-NZ, and it was perfect ! We picked it up from Christchurch and dropped it off in Auckland. We had good explanation about the van and how to drive in New Zealand. Staff at both Escape depots were really friendly and well organized. The van is easy to drive, well…

Heidi Johansson | May 2020

Two girls from Finland and Buttercup the mountain bug! We picked our campervan from Auckland and fell in love instantly, our campervans real name was butterflower but we desided to name her again as written above ❤️ We drove around North- and South Island for 3 weeks and overall 5000 kilometres. She did not disappoint!…

Laura Schidlowski | March 2020

Me and my Boyfriend had a perfect holiday and travelled around NZ for four weeks with our escape campervan. With „Ladybug“ it was pleasant to drive and comfortable to sleep. Everything went really well and we would book an Escape Campervan at any time. Thanks to you we hab an unforgettable time!

Nolwenn Lévêque | February 2020

Amazing trip with our ‘Frogs’ van ! Perfect size and easy to drive for us who are used to drive small cars. 3 weeks were not enough and we will definitely come back !

Tim Schilling | March 2020

We rent our our fancy camper in Auckland. We traveled around nz and had a realy great experience and a super reliable van. The escape team was very friendly and made everything easy for us. All in all we had great time with escape rentals.

Samzie Hale | February 2020

We loved our trusty van which we named Kia Ora . She started first turn each time & cruised along nicely at 100 km per hour . The van was basic but that was exactly what we wanted we wanted to be outside as much as possible Ours was not self contained which meant you…

Ted Silvester | April 2020

No problems at all, the van was great and perfect for our purpose. we only had 2 afternoons of rain in 5 weeks , a small side awning would be help full. Our “tui” van was economical and averaged 10.9 litres per 100 klms. Lots of people photographed the van and asked if it was…

Thomas Stanley | March 2020

We escaped to the countryside so easily with our Escape Campervan! It was our home away from home and it was really easy to book and pick up/drop off! They even helped with tips for moving around New Zealand and had a range of essentials to choose from as well as a few bits other…

Denise Lee | March 2020

Great company, really helpful and went through the camper thoroughly when we picked it up. Found the van good value for money and drove well. Would definitely use this company again

Florent Borleteau | May 2020

I rented a campervan for 4 months with Escape. Always a quick answer to my messages, attentive and accommodating. A van very clean and confortable with everything inside to spend a good journey in NZ. I recommend Escape without hesitation! Again thanks for everything! A happy Frenchy

Simona Boeva | March 2020

Had a great time travelling around NZ in our Escape camper van, would definitely recommend! The van looks a bit small at first but it is super cozy, the bed is comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need. Good customer service at pick up and drop off, quick and efficient service and some good…

Daniela Zambrini | February 2020

I am happy to share excellent feedback for the Escape Campervan Rentals team in Auckland. Great communication prior to rental, clear instructions and information provided at the time of pick-up. Our self-contained van, as all Escape vans, was basic, with no-frills or unnecessary luxuries. Clean and safe vehicle. No mechanical issues, just a blip with…

Julie Moksim | February 2020

We absolutely loved our Escape Campervan. It’s so much more unique than all the large white camper vans you see on the road. It’s small enough so it’s manageable, but large enough that we were able to hang out in it comfortably. We never worried about where we could take the van. Most importantly, they…

Dylan Ross | April 2020

We have had the best 3 weeks with our van from Escape. Queen Bee provided us with a fantastic home away from home for over 3000kms, she was reliable, comfortable and safe and started first time every morning. The staff were fantastic, quick to reply to queries and handled the current worldwide crisis really well,…

Cody Lane | April 2020

Amazing van and time (sweet as). Had a 15 day rental from the Auckland location. Upon day of pick up our van was ready and clean. Staff was friendly, very helpful and informative. It was an efficient and quick process to get us out on the road. The van ran and drove smooth the entire…

Claire Lewinski | July 2020

Rented a van for about a month! Big bed, fairly comfortable just to hang out during the day. Had to get my own lights. Pump sink was a bit awkward. Would rent again

Ivana Kouzmine | January 2020

My husband and I rented an Hugo Campervan and had a great time. The staff was awesome, and answered all my questions before our trip fast and professionally. Also they gave great advice about resting before starting our trip. Before starting our trip, they explained everything about the van and we had a lovely holiday.…

Erwin Lammers | July 2020

Excellent value for money, we’ve fallen a little bit in love with ‘our’ Sacred Heart. Had the best time in New Zealand we could wish for and if you like your camping to be a bit basic and not to fancy the Escape campervans are the we to go.

James Catchpole | July 2020

We had a four week rental with Escape and it was just awesome. They upgraded us to a self contained van for free and included extra duvets and stuff to make sure that we’d be sweet even in the mid winter! We had an issue at the beginning but it was solved within 15 minutes…

Yoris W | February 2019

Awesome campervan rentals. Simple, sweet looking and bulletproof cars. Helpfull employees and they have supported us significantly to have a great NZ journey. I definitely recommend them!

Brendan J | January 2019

Fantastic service during pickup and drop-off. The van itself was well equipped, clean, and comfortable. Impressed with the exterior designs and driving the south island was great in an Escape Van. Highly recommended!

Jenny G | April 2019

We just spent a week in an escape Camper van and it was one of the best times I have had in my life!! We would highly recommend this company. The staff was very friendly and helpful with all the questions we had!!

Nicholas M | March 2019

Wonderful experience. Had everything we needed and we were well informed by the staff. Have used escape in California and that’s why we used it here in the South island. Would always recommend Escape rentals!

Gemma H | May 2019

Had the best time in our escape camper for our two months in NZ! It was cosy, comfortable, had everything we needed and was super easy to drive!

Elham M | June 2019

Perfect campervan for a trip around New Zealand! The campervan was perfect and stated exactly what it was. Good price for someone who is on a budget. Great service at the offices. Go for it!

Kevin McEvoy | Ireland (August 2017)

Travelled both islands in style in the Godzilla camper through August and September and couldn’t recommend it enough! The best way to see this beautiful country. Van was in great condition and the staff at Escape were friendly and helpful. Hope to come back again some day!

Jon Van Wren | United Kingdom (August 2017)

Rented van for 3 weeks. Had a brilliant time in what must be one of the most civilised countries in the world. Not a moments trouble with the van. In fact, it’s probably the only way to see NZ. Had days that will be remembered for a lifetime. Krispy a mine of information in Christchurch.…

Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé | France (August 2017)

We really enjoyed New-Zealand thanks to our great campervan ! Each design is unique. The campervan worked well, we had no problems. Full insurance allows you to drive on unsealed roads. Price was really correct. It was our first experience driving left, it was fun and easy ! Kiwis drive safely so don’t be afraid.…

James Ellis | Australia (August 2017)

Thanks for an amazing way to travel new Zealand, picked it up from Christchurch service and knowledge of places to stay and things to see we’re great. The van was in very good condition great to drive and the decorations were great. Highly recommend Escape a rentals to anyone.

Lewis Done | United Kingdom (August 2017)

Having one of these vans is definitely the best way to see this beautiful country. Me and my better half picked up our van from the Christchurch depot. Straight away met with friendly faces and advice. Krispy explained all about the DOC sites and how they were in the most stunning locations.

Jersey Jim | Jersey 2017

This is the third time that i’ve used Escape and can’t fault with them at all. Great value for money and the campervans unique paint jobs are awesome. I always pick my campervan up from the Chch depot and am so well looked after by Krispy Leckie. So if you’re looking for a great campervan this…
