Everyone’s Twittering, Facebooking, emailing and yes even talking about how awesome New Zealand is in the summertime. One of the best ways to really experience everything on offer in ‘Godzone’ this summer is in a backpacker Campervan.

backpacker Campervans don’t cost the earth, particularly if shared with good friends. So grab a couple of your best mates and make this summer one you’ll never forget – for all of the right reasons!

In an industry first, backpacker Campervans recently introduced a new hi-tech website that uses Google Maps. The website ( ), allows travellers to custom-build their own itinerary for the perfect tour around New Zealand. They can also change their itinerary from any computer or laptop along the way as their adventure unfolds.

Unlike the UK, New Zealand’s train service doesn’t run very often or visit every location, so using a backpacker Campervan is the ideal way to see New Zealand. If for you, a summer holiday means beaches, then you’ll want to visit some of New Zealand’s best spots, which are often off the beaten track. With a backpacker Campervan, you can explore these hidden treasures and stay at some campsites that even border the sea.

Step off the plane in Auckland, grab your backpacker Campervan and head to Raglan. Drink in the views of this rugged west coast surfing village and go to sleep with the sound of the waves lapping at the shore. This laidback place is a magnet for foodies, art lovers and those who just want to chill out.
Drive east to the Coromandel, which is not only famous for its excellent surfing spots, but also has beautiful walking routes, festivals, markets and much more. The Coromandel has a number of different beach towns and with the freedom of a backpacker Campervan, you can drive through them all and stay at your favourite one!

With a backpacker Campervan you’re never far away from spectacular scenery and the adrenalin pumping adventures New Zealand is famous for. One of those places is Waitomo, home of the Legendary Black Water Rafting Co. With three or five hour tours that include abseiling, climbing, and cave tubing, this adventure is not for the fainthearted! Or for the more timid, you can tour the mystical caves on foot.

Head to the South Island and book your backpacker Campervan on the Interislander ferry to discover some truly magnificent scenery. With a backpacker Campervan, you can create your own magical journey through craggy gorges, past pristine lakes and wind your way around breathtaking mountains.

Ricki Dee Hudson, Product Manager for backpacker Campervans & Car Rentals says, “Pick up the keys to a backpacker Campervan when you arrive in New Zealand and you’re all set to start your adventure. All you need to pack is your international drivers’ license, camera, shorts, t-shirts and some good friends! And don’t forget to pack your swimsuit (locals call them togs).”

Because you want money left over for important stuff like zorbing and paragliding, and because backpacker Campervans is committed to providing its customers with exceptional value, it will match any competitors’ online price. This is available for all backpacker Campervans and car rentals in New Zealand by visiting
