Campervans Built
for a Great Escape

Book Your Campervan Experience Early and Save!

An Escape Rentals campervan is a great way to experience this wonderful country of ours…

  • Really great value! Self-contained campers from NZ$100 per day during summer and as cheap as NZ$29 a day during winter.
  • Superb Reputation. Our user-reviews are among the best in the industry. Many of our hires are referrals from friends.
  • Easy to Drive. Our campervans are rugged, reliable, comfortable…and really easy to drive.
  • Easy to Book. Use our online booking system. A NZ$300 deposit will reserve your Escape Rentals camper for the summer and that deposit is fully refundable if you cancel just 7 or more days prior to your scheduled campervan pickup collection.

Whilst New Zealand is operating under COVID-19 alert Level 2 we are taking measures to ensure we have good systems in place so that our clients and staff remain safe.

Therefore please note the following:

Campervan collections will be by appointment only. This is simple to do and can be arranged when you make your reservation using our online booking portal or you can liaise with us via phone or email. We’ll do our best to meet your requirements, but we are introducing this measure to;

  1. Ensure we are appropriately resourced and prepared for your arrival.
  2. Make sure we adhere to social distancing recommendations by scheduling ‘pick-ups’ and ‘drop offs’ at staggered intervals.

Contact tracing is important and whilst we’ll have most of your details on file we will also need a New Zealand contact number. We can provide you with a NZ SIM card if required (free).

So think about Escape Rentals for your New Zealand road trip adventure and please stay safe out there. Thank you!

8 Great Reasons to Choose Escape Rentals


Our Prices

We constantly check our competitor’s prices to ensure our rates are lower and our hires are getting great value for money. We even price-match comparable campervans so you always know you’re getting a great deal.

Unique Artwork

Each Escape campervan is unique with over 200 designs to choose from – That makes Escape vans perfect for that selfie or Facebook post. You’ll also feel like part of the wider Escape community as you travel New Zealand.

Our Campervans

Our campervans are designed for travel – they’re rugged, reliable and easy to drive. We care about comfort, offering a queen size bed, a dining area and a kitchenette. We also have self-contained campervans for more camping flexibility and WIFI options available (NEW).

Convenient Locations

Our depots are conveniently located close to the city centres in both Auckland and Christchurch (a 5-10 minute walk). One way hires are OK and we can even help with a discounted ferry crossing. We also provide 24 hour roadside assistance.

Our Reputation

Escape Rentals is trusted and highly recommended on major review sites, with many authentic and positive comments relating to our product and service. We’re proud of that.

Better Insurance

Simple and sensible Insurance options. Great value and better coverage (including driving on unsealed roads) yet our insurance is easy to understand and entirely fair and reasonable. No nasty surprises and no hidden costs.

Friendly & Professional

We’re a typical Kiwi business – friendly and family owned. However we still take our responsibilities as a trusted campervan operator seriously, which is why we are Qualmark endorsed. This means we deliver what we promise and if there is an issue – we get it sorted.

Easy Admin

Simple paperwork. If you choose our basic insurance, your bond is frozen only (no cash deductions) and released immediately when the van is returned. As travellers ourselves, we know that ‘stuff’ is important.
