Why Your Next Family Holiday Should Be In A Campervan

Created in partnership with Tourism New Zealand

A classic Kiwi roadie is one of the best ways to explore New Zealand, but instead of staying at the bach these school holidays, explore further and make the most of your time on the road by taking your accomodation with you in a campervan.

Increasingly popular in New Zealand, campervanning has proven to be a fun, affordable and convenient way to take your family on holiday. If you’re considering a campervan trip, see why we think travelling this way makes for the ultimate family holiday … plus find a special offer from Britz – available until end of April 2021. 

A campervan makes holidaying easier

One of the benefits of hitting the road in a campervan is the convenience. Not only can you find an option to fit families big and small, but each campervan comes with the essentials you need to have the ultimate family holiday.

Don’t worry if it’s your first time campervanning either, because there are apps and videos to help you have a carefree journey. Powered by Campermate, the THL Roadtrip app enables families to search for attractions and campgrounds. Britz’s “how-to” videos will also ensure you can confidently navigate New Zealand by campervan like a pro.

A few notable benefits are

  • Pet friendly – save money on kennels and catteries and bring your furry friend along
  • Lots of different layout options to suit your travel needs
  • Drivable on a standard licence (yep, even the big ones!)
  • Kids are safely strapped in with your own or hired car seats
  • Locked and loaded with the essentials
  • Lots of storage for your creature comforts
  • Space for your favourite toys like boogie boards and bikes

Campervans are brimming with thoughtful conveniences and stocked with fresh bedding, cutlery, and crockery, allowing you to comfortably go beyond with your whānau – and even your beloved family pet!

Most campervans are fully self-contained with their own kitchen and bathroom facilitates; allowing you to easily shower the kids before bed and whip together a family-favourite dinner all while you’re parked up at a stunning beach or lakeside.

Travelling in a campervan also offers great flexibility so if your plans change or your decide to travel further, you can. Start your journey in Auckland, spend a few days soaking up the cultural and natural attractions in Rotorua, head to Taupo for some water-based fun then settle in Palmerston North before starting your return journey – it’s up to you! No matter where you decide to go, the whole of New Zealand is open to you in a campervan.
