Start by Selecting Location

New Zealand is an amazing country to explore and there is no better way than with your own 4 wheels – with an amazing campervan or stationwagon.

If you wanna start in the North or South – both islands are amazing starting points (hint – campervans are generally cheaper to pick-up on the South Island).
We at Travellers Autobarn have written a number of amazing road trips to get you started – sometimes you just don’t know where to start so we have decided to make it easy for you

Find below a larger number of different routes and travel recommendations – if you still haven’t found what you are looking for, there is always Google!

So jump into your campervan or stationwagon and get this road trip started…have an amazing time!!! If you think the North is place to start your trip then check out deals on campervan hire in Auckland. But if the South is where you want to kick off your trip then check out our specials on campervan hire in Christchurch.
