excellent experience, very friendly staff everything worked out without any problems, adrian was very obliging and helped us so much with everything! I would recommend travellers autobarn. thank you very much for everything!read more
Mike helped us get setup and was a super nice guy. He got us all situated in the camper and felt completely honest, like he wasn’t trying to oversell us on stuff we didn’t need. We forgot our confirmation booklet with all the trip info at the office and he sent us an email right away with the pertinent info we needed. Great stuff!read more
We picked up our Campervan in Auckland after a great checkout with Mike. All the details were covered and he gave great advice on the equipment options. We drove 5,887km with no problems. We turned it in Christchurch with Harry who was very helpful and showed us how to get the bus back to the hotel. The return was as painless as the pickup. The van really was a nice fit for the roads in New Zealand.read more
Perfect van and customer service for a cheap price !The vans are quite new, well maintained, confortable and well thaught. I chose Traveller Autobarn because they were one of the cheapest and on top of that the van was great and the customer service was perfect. We forgot something in the van and send it back home free of charge !! Thanks again for that Mike and for the great experience to discover NZ with your van !read more
Excellent service and experience. Campervans are a great way to explore New Zealand and these Van's are great for doing that. Pick up was easy and drop was very smooth. The staff were friendly and helpful.read more
Great experience!. I read some spiteful reviews below regarding customers driving badly...no logic. Hiring and driving a camper in NZ requires an amount of personal responsibility , yes drivers can be idiots but it seems so can reviewers who blame the rental company....bet you they didn't hire a van and just felt the need to mouth off. In my experience I can't fault the staff and must mention their thorough focus on safety during I pre-hire briefing. Good job lads (and ladies) keep it up !read more
My husband and I recently came back from a fantastic trip to NZ. We hired a campervan from Travellers Autobarn and drove around the North Island. We collected our van from Auckland with no troubles, the team there were so friendly and efficient we were on the road in no time. NZ is such a fantastic place to explore, we would definitely do it again with Travellers Autobarn. Cheers!read more
What a trip! All thanks to Traveller Auto. The Hi 5 van was awesome, it has everything you need for a great trip. Massive bed, heaps of storage, phone chargers, fridge, kitchenette ...the list goes on. Mike at the Auckland office was ammmazing. So helpful and friendly. Will be back for more soon! Thanks guys!read more
I’ve just got back from a family trip traveling around New Zealand over Christmas. We had a fantastic time in our camper van from Travellers Autobarn. Customer service was excellent from start to finish. Information provided at the start was clear and extremely useful. The camper van was clean and in great condition. We had no issues with the van during our journey. Would definitely recommend Travellers Autobarn if your looking to hire a van for your holiday. And we’ll be using them again next time. Thank you! 5 stars from us!read more
I recently travelled to Auckland to travel around the island and picked up a fantastic camper van. It was in perfect condition and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I hadn’t been to NZ before and they went above and beyond helping to direct me to the best sites and locations. I would highly recommend this company, they really made our trip perfect!read more
So happy with our Travellers Autobarn experience seeing all of NZ. The team was so nice, and helpful - even picking us up from the airport on arrival which was awesome!! We rented the Hi-5 camper which was amazing. It has everything you need. Big, roomy… an a smooth ride. In the campervan we got to travel on our own terms... Campervanning around NZ is the only way to see it. #vanlifeCheck out Travellers Autobarn for sure. Highly recommend!read more
Finding out Travellers Autobarn had vans in Australia and NZ made it a no brainer to book a van with them. We did a 2 week trip in Australia and then 1 week in New Zealand, both were equally amazing. We rented a Kuga Campervan in both places and it delivered the goods. Comfortable on the road, plenty of space for all our gear and loads of equipment to make the nights comfortable and the dinners delicious. Can't wait to book the next trip!read more
Fantastic overall!..one suggestion..get more bedding than just the one sleeping bag per person. It's just not enough at this time of year. Some parts of NZ are freezing in September. Even in summer, places like the mountain areas are extremely cold at night. We had to purchase blankets at an op shop on the second day as we were freezing at night. I suggest include some additional blankets. There's heaps of space. I don't like the idea mentioned of a 12v heater. Blankets are far better and more practical. Cheersread more
We had an amazing holiday with our Autobarn Kuga campervan. It was definitely worth the slightly higher price compared to the budget rental company we went with on our previous trip. The staff was just super friendly and helpful, and the van was in almost pristine condition. Very spacious and the interior was clearly well thought out. If we come back to NZ then we'll go with Autobarn again. The only minor downside is not being allowed to drive on unsealed roads (you'd have no insurance, so please read the T&C's about that!). Nonetheless, we fully recommend Travellers Autobarn!read more
Had a wonderful experience with Mike and the staff at TA. They were extremely helpful and the vans were in impeccable condition. We had had a rough experience with Apollo in Australia and they were the complete opposite. Best rental agency I have ever dealt with & highly recommend. Thanks again :)read more
My partner and I recently rented a Kuga campervan from Travellers Autobarn for a 2 road trip around the south island (July 2017). The van was surprisingly spacious, having a lot of room for storage as well as a lot of head room in the kitchen area (especially useful for my partner at 1.82m tall!). The kitchen itself was great, with a two burner gas stove, a small fridge and all the kitchen equipment you could need. Due to the fridge running off a different battery from the van, we were able to leave it running on the lowest setting with no worry of it draining the battery. As is was winter we had the winter pack which included extra sleeping bags and a hot water bottle which was awesome to have on those colder nights.The van was super easy and smooth to drive, making travelling from place to place much more enjoyable. Having the self contained option was awesome as it meant we could stay in some stunning Self-Contained parking areas. The staff were super friendly and easy to deal with; booking the van and picking it up was a breeze. Overall Highly recommended.read more
I rented a camper van from Auckland for two weeks from Travellers Autobarn.The van was very clean and looked like it was brand new. Particularly liked the thick mattresses for the top bunk which you don't always get in camper vans. Mechanically, cleanliness and customer service were all brilliant, though the van did use more petrol than expected (probably due to the weight of the van).Renting from Travellers Autobarn has been a great experience, I highly recommend it.read more
Me and my partner recently rented a hi-top camper from the Auckland branch of Travellers Autobarn, and it was perfect.The whole experience was brilliant from the get go; when we picked up we were greeted by Mike who I believe is the manager there. He was very friendly as if we were just having a catch up with an old friend, and he was really helpful and gave us ideas on places to go. I think he also got us on the road within about half an hour on being there, which was great as we had a busy day planned.And the van was great, it was clean and all seemed brand new, it was almost like a 5 star hotel on wheels. It had everything we needed in it, the kitchen was a good size, and quite a luxury as were used to camping in a smaller van. And we had heaps of space for our backpacks, we didn't even know what to do with all of the storage space. It was also a bonus that the van was self sufficient so we could stay at freedom sites, as those were some of our favourite (especially the one at Cathedral Cove). Mechanically the van was good (not that I know much about mechanics), but it got us around the North and South islands without any problems.All in all it was an amazing experience, and I would definitely rent with these guys again. :) Thanks guys, Adam & Claireread more
We deal with lots of campervans and travel often. What makes Travellers Autobarn unique, is not only their friendly and professional attitude, but their state of the art new fleet of campers. When we arrived we were treated like family. Mike, the Auckland manager was extremely helpful and full of ideas tailored to our curious nature. The Kuga, (campervan) is of a high quality fitout and can come with all the bells and whistles. The table packs away easily and the mattress was super comfortable. If you need lots of space for your gear, there is plenty of storage in the above compartments. Definitely going to use Travellers Autobarn again. Thanks guys. Was an absolute pleasure.read more

There is a bus (482) which goes from Coonamar St/Sharps Rd. You will need to get off at Airport West Shopping Town/Louis St. From here you will need to walk to Matthews Avenue and take the Route 59 tram towards the City. Get off at stop 57-Hawker St. and walk for 2 minutes before turning right on King St. This journey will cost you approx. $5 and take around 45 minutes.
Alternatively there are many shuttle services that operate from the Airport - we recommend Steves Shuttles (freephone 0800 10 10 21) - just ask to go the Escape depot. Cost is $28-38 (cash) depending on how many passengers and takes around 20-30 minutes.

Solid experience returning my camper van. They were a little busy so it took about 30 minutes but the serviceman was very friendly and got us through the process quickly. One price of advice DO NOT RENT THE GPS it is missing streets and also the touchscreen barely worked. It’s also quite pricey. Much better to get a sim card and just use google maps.read more
While our pick-up experience could have been better (it just felt very rushed, with minimal information given, and a few problems/things missing in the van we needed to clear up before leaving). That said, the rest of our experience was a great one. While you could tell the van's age, it ran well for our entire 2 week trip in south NZ. The pricing was much better than competitors and when we did reach out to Travellers once they got right back to us after adding the information to the file we requested. When returning the van, we had a different person help us and he did a great job. Harry went over all the return details with us and all in all just made us feel appreciated. If you see this, thanks again Harry!P.S. just as a pro-tip for future renters, if you're driving a lot, make sure you check your tire pressures regularly! As a daily driver I bought my own tire pressure gauge and checked it every few days. It needed refilling a couple times in our 2 week trip with the constant driving and huge temperature swings the country is known for. So... bring a pressure gauge!read more
We had a very food experience with this company. Even if we had problems with the car they were solved very quickly. The Customer Service was reachable 24/7 they were very kind, especially Fer and Harry.Thank you for making our trip that easy and enjoyable. We would always recommend this company and book a car here again.read more
Very nice rental company, very hassle free and easy going. Not the newest camper vans, but everything worked perfectly fine. picking up with Mike and returning with Harry went really well, no problems at all, very easy and relaxed! We definitely would recommend hiring a campervan with Travellers autobarn !read more
We had some issues with our reservation showing up in the system so we were kinda worried but looks like they had some sort of technical or clerical error. However, they made sure to let us know that they would take care and not to worry which was a big relief. They were super helpful throughout the whole process! Just wished they stayed open a little longer.read more
Our campervan experience was so much more than what we thought it would be! Autobarn Christchurch is the right company to go for and the staff couldn’t be more helpful, special thank you to Harry for explaining everything so well and making the process so smooth - thank you. Would definitely recommend!!read more
We had a great experience here. Clean campervan with stellar customer service. Really helpful service insuring that we had everything we wanted for our trip and the van worked great. Thanks for the Luna, who was super helpful making sure our van was available in time. Although we had a bit late to return our van, she still give us a good service and no charges for late returned. she was very friendly and helpful, we will definitely come back again!read more
Renting with Travellers Autobarn was an excellent experience. The van ran smoothly with no issues. Harry went above and beyond with his customer service, he even dropped us off at our accommodation after we handed the van back in. Cheers Harry and Travellers!read more

Hired a campervan from this branch and the experience was great! Excellent service from branch team members, especially Harry. He made sure we had everything in our van to have the most comfortable experience. He went out of his way to suit our trip! Overall a very positive trip thanks to travelers autobarn and Christchurch team!read more
Highly recommend Autobarn Travellers. Their vans are really comfy, good layout for cooking and great headspace for taller folk. Joseph out of the Christchurch office was awesome. Walked us through everything we'd need to know about the vehicle, was really funny and even drove me back to the airport!read more
I had rented from another company in a different country and my experience with Joseph and Travellers Autobarn Christchurch and Auckland was so much better. This is a great company to rent and deal with. I highly recommend renting from them!read more
Highly recommend. The van is great quality for a great price, very reliable. And the customer service is top notch. We dealt with Harry both when we picked up and dropped off the van and he was an absolute legend.read more
We had a wonderful experience thanks to Joseph from Travellers Autobarn in Christchurch! He assisted us with the pick up and drop off of our van and helped us with questions that came up during our travels. He explained everything so well and could always reach him in case of questions/emergencies etc. He even took us to the airport at the end of our travels! :)) The van itself was just great, it was wonderfully equipped and we had the best time during our 3 weeks of travelling the South Island. Very easy to drive and to keep clean, we would definitely rent with Travellers again. Thank you Joseph for everything! We will hopefully see you again soon!Jess and Marianaread more
Wonderful service! We had an amazing road trip around South Island, best ever! Thanks to Joseph and Harry from Christchurch, their were so helpful and friendly, we will definitely come back and see you guys again!read more
Have used them twice now, both in New Zealand and in Australia in different vans and have loved both experiences. Really helpful service insuring that we had everything we wanted for our trip and the van worked great. We had a slightly older model with a few bumps and dents on the body work, but the internal fit was still very good and we had no problems with the engine. Would highly reccommend and if we are ever back this way, we will book again with TA!!read more
We've had an amazing trip in NZ with our campervan! The staff of travellers autobahn was super friendly. Especially Joseph who took our jackets to the airport when we accidentally left them in our campervan. Great service!read more
Went to this branch over my South Island vocation. Renting a hi5 was the best choice for this. Christchurch staff members Luna and Joseph were friendly and welcome us from the start, the specs and insurance policies were clearly explained. They even have an own app to show you where the camp sites are! Very helpful. The van we got was powerful and clean. Nothing to complain. We had a great time and will be back again on our next South Island holiday.read more
Communications and customer service with these guys has been fantastic from beginning to end. It was our 1st trip to the South Island so glad we used them. Vehicle had all the basics and was nice and clean. Recommend them highly with extra thanks to Harry arranging the return of my lost property. Would definitely use Travellers Autobarn again.read more
We rented the campervans from Travellers Autobarn for a long weekend South Island road trip from Christchurch and they surpassed my expectations! The vans were reliable and the interior are so well designed. The bed was comfortable and having all the bedding and linen supplied. The service we received from the depot were excellent, the staff were very helpful and friendly (shut out to Luna and Joseph) Highly recommended hiring one of these for your next adventure!read more
These guys are great. We rented in Christchurch and dropped off in Auckland. Joseph was very helpful and informative as were the staff in Auckland. The Kuga van is well equipped and designed well with ample storage. The bed is comfy and being able to stand in it was a bonus. The gas cooker and water pump both worked brilliantly and the van interior was of a clean and tidy standard (I am not a backpacker either so I can be pretty fussy). The van was reliable and didn't fail once. The only negative is it chews through fuel and the air conditioning could have worked better but overall it was an excellent experience and I would absolutely rent from these guys again- it's brilliant to deal with a company that seems to genuinely care about their customers and wants them to enjoy their road trip in NZ rather than just purely trying to make money. Other travelers I met with different rental vans complimented the set up of ours and said they wished they'd rented with Travellers Autobarn! Thanks guys :)read more
Hired a camper van from Travellers Autobarn ChC for a south island runaway, and it was superb. The campervan was nicely maintained and all functional, the journey was very good as rain with the help from their own developed cellphone app. We had a great time travelling with this van, and we will return next time when we were out there.read more
Very reliable campervans. We rented our three person campervan for 2 weeks and were very happy with the standard to which it was cleaned upon collection. Comfortable and well designed interior. We would hire again.We had a couple of chilly nights where the sleeping bags provided were a bit too thin, but other than that all good.read more
We had high expectations for New Zealand, but I have to admit this country has surpassed them, and that’s highly thanks to our Van from Travellers-Autobarn, we drove for more than 7000 km, through the most remote and iconic locations, in great and not so great weather conditions, and our Kuga van never let us down.Although we didn’t use the outside chairs and table due to weather conditions, we did use the interior a lot, we had some heavy rain days and staying inside was always incredibly comfortable, and for us especially who need to some work while travel, the Kuga has proven to be a perfect companion. The internal storage is very spacious for all your luggage and bed is comfortable. Stove, fridge, and microwave are really helpful while on the road and we have used them almost every day.Although we didn’t have any breakdown we had a few talks with customer care, and the stuff at pick up and drop off, all of them incredibly kind and very helpful while explaining how the van worked and what to do in all those situations we don’t want to happen, but sometimes happen.Overall I totally recommend to choose Travellers-Autobarn for your road trip in Australia or New Zealand, we had an incredible time and would choose them again without a doubt.read more
这次Campervan旅行是我来新西兰8年以来第一次尝试，非常幸运能如此愉快的和Travellers Autobarn合作。非常快速的租到了车，所有的服务都是非常热情和耐心。第一次走入车辆给我的感觉就是干净，没有任何异味。车体配置也是非常齐全，大到车载冰箱，微波炉，小到饭碗，茶杯，垃圾袋，真的是一应俱全。真个旅程都充满了快乐，这样的旅行绝对值得一试！不多说，绝对的满星好评！希望Travellers Autobarn越做越好，生意兴隆！read more
We loved booking with Travellers Autobarn. They were able to get us the vehicle and everything we needed for our road trip in NZ. The vehicle worked perfectly as well! Next time we are in NZ we will definitely use them again!read more
Such a fantastic experience. Spent two weeks exploring in a camper and was an unforgettable experience. From start to finish it was compleatly perfect, we picked up the van and we were walked through everything we needed to know in detail and any questions we had were answered. The van itself ran like a dream the whole two weeks and was surprisingly efficient on the petrol. The bed was really nice and all the equipment like bedding, sleeping bags and pillows all seemed brand new. Couldn't recommend exploring like this more and choosing travellers autobarn is just a no brainer. A truly unforgettable experience.read more
