Summer Motorhome rental deals don't get any better than this...

I’m always encouraging customers to book their Motorhome early for peak travel periods.  The reason for this is simple; Motorhomes are specialty vehicles where demand always outstrips supply over peak periods.

Unlike Hotels, Flights or car rental you are also very unlikely to get a cheaper price on a Motorhome rental as you get closer to peak travel periods.  We are fast approaching the Summer travel period in Australia and New Zealand.  Both countries will book out shortly for the Christmas / New Year’s period and fill steadily for January – March over the coming weeks. So you must book now to avoid any delays or disappointments.

To give you further motivation to book for January – March travel we've been busy creating exclusive EarlyBird deals with multiple partners in New Zealand and Australia.  The deal is simple, Book and pay by 31 October for travel from the 15th January 2013 to 31 March 2013 or later, and get at least 10% off the normal (daily) rental price. The added advantage is that you are far more likely to get your first choice vehicle than someone leaving their booking till November or later.

Here’s a great tip! If you are looking to see both Islands of New Zealand:  You can get much cheaper pricing in many cases if travelling one way from Christchurch to Auckland than you can from Auckland to Christchurch.  So consider flying in to Christchurch to being a rental travelling north.  Our major partners simply end up with too many vehicles in Christchurch and need to get them back north.  There are some great deals to be had for travel between now and 20th December on Christchurch to Auckland rentals. Consider travelling from South to North throughout the Summer too, you have a greater chance of cheaper pricing and vehicle availability.

An important tip: If you're travelling from Christchurch to Auckland, you can take advantage of relocation deals. Take a rental from Christchurch to Auckland between now and 20 December 2012, and you will get a special deal. These relocations take place due to vehicles being relocated back to Auckland for the Summer period.

The same deal applies for Australian motorhomes. From Cairns to Brisbane and Sydney (after the eclipse) on the 20th November to the 10th of December, we have great deals on 'multiple' vehicles, needing relocation.

USA and Canada earlybird offers!

If you're considering a Motorhome/RV in USA or Canada next year, then now is the prime time to secure a good deal. Earlybird specials and programmes have been released for the Spring and Summer of 2013. They offer discounts of up to 15% off the base rental price as well as a host of other items at greatly reduced pricing.  The specials are the most generous before the end of November and are finished by end of January or February.  So secure a rental in North America with us now and enjoy massive savings!
