Can you sleep anywhere in an RV in New Zealand? Is freedom camping allowed?

Freedom camping is generally permitted in New Zealand, however, while allowed, it is strictly regulated. Rules and guidelines must be followed at all times and these can vary depending on the area and any council bylaws (local laws) that may apply.

Generally to freedom camp anywhere in New Zealand, your vehicle must have a self-containment certification

If you are unsure of the rules that apply in a specific area it is best to visit the nearest I-Site (visitor information center) and ask about any local regulations or bylaws.

Can I pick up my RV in the South Island and drop it off in the North Island or vice versa?

Yes, many companies have depots in both the North and South Islands and allow one-way trips.

If planning this you will need to pay the cost of the ferry, our support team can help you book this.

Additional one-way fees may apply, the comparison tool will automatically factor this into your total.

What is a self-contained vehicle?

If you wish to go freedom camping in New Zealand, your vehicle must be self-contained and certified.

This means you must be able to live in the vehicle for 3 days without needing additional water or needing to dump the waste.

In addition, the vehicle must have:

  • A toilet
  • A shower
  • Wastewater storage
  • A rubbish bin with a lid

The vehicle must have been checked by a qualified officer to ensure it meets these requirements. Self-contained motorhomes have a sticker displayed on the vehicle, proving its certification.

Can I rent an RV at Auckland airport?

There are no RV rental companies based within the terminal at Auckland Airport, however, most depots are just a short drive away (1.5-19 miles).

Many suppliers offer a complimentary shuttle service with your rental, however, this must be booked in advance. For cases where a shuttle is not provided, there are public buses, shuttles, and taxis available.

Does my campervan rental come with unlimited miles?

Yes, generally unlimited miles are included for standard vehicle rentals in New Zealand. The comparison tool will show you if your preferred vehicle has this included or if the mileage is restricted.

How much does it cost to stay in an RV park?

New Zealand has plenty of options for camping available. These range from privately owned RV parks to DOC (Department of Conservation) campsites.

A stay at an RV park will usually cost between $30-$50 (NZD) per night, depending on the area. A stay at a DOC campsite can range from $5-$15 per person per night.

DOC campsites can be a little more basic. However, many do have amenities available. These include toilets, showers, trash bins, and communal kitchen facilities in some cases.

Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.

Attractions

Popular Attractions on the North Island

Cape Reinga

At the northwestern tip of Northland’s Aupouri peninsula, the Tasman Sea confronts the Pacific Ocean in a feisty show of dueling tides and swirling currents. It’s not technically the most northerly point in New Zealand, but it is the most northerly you’re likely to be able to access – the Surville Cliffs, 18.6 miles to the east, are a closed scientific reserve.

Known to the Maori as the ‘leaping off place of spirits’, an 800-year-old pohutukawa tree is said to serve as a conduit for the dead to the underworld. The lighthouse at Cape Reinga was built and lit in 1941 and automated in 1987, providing for the title of the last watched lighthouse in New Zealand.

Cathedral Cove

Cathedral Cove is a key attraction of the Coromandel Peninsula, marked by its iconic white rock natural archway and turquoise waters. The cove can only be accessed by an hour hike or by sea.

Mount Maunganui (Mauao)

A 761-foot-tall extinct volcanic cone that rises over a peninsular sandbar to the northeast of central Tauranga, the Bay of Plenty’s Mount Maunganui (in Maori it’s Mauao, which means ‘caught be the dawn’) is known for its beaches and surfing. Pilot Bay is on the harbourside and just a few blocks apart, on the ocean side, lies award-winning Main Beach.

Formed two to three million years ago and known locally as ‘The Mount’, a 1.5-hour/2.5 mile trek brings you to the summit, which affords views of the coastline, the Tauranga cruise port (New Zealand’s largest), and the Kaimai Ranges.

Alternatively, a 45-minute 2.1-mile track circles the base and is declared New Zealand’s most popular walk.

Rotorua

One and a half hour’s drive east of Hamilton you’ll find Rotorua and the Wia-O-Tapu, famous for the region's unique geothermal and volcanic features.

Tongariro

Located 20 kilometers out of Taupo on the North Island of New Zealand is Mount Tongariro, a compound volcano over 1,900 meters tall. The mountain is located within Tongariro National Park, a popular tourist destination that is home to the Tongariro Crossing, one of New Zealand's most famous hiking trails.

The region is home to many campsites, making it a great stop on your RV vacation.

Waiheke Island

Waiheke Island is located in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand and is New Zealand’s third most populous island. The island is accessible via ferry, with the terminal being located just outside downtown Auckland. The island is famous for its beautiful scenery and is also home to some of New Zealand's best wineries. Waiheke is also home to a campsite, making it a great stop on your RV vacation.
