Pickup and Dropoff

What should I bring on my New Zealand Adventure?

(Below is a recommendation only of items you should consider when travelling around New Zealand) Most items can be purchased cheaply once you’ve arrived, or can be hired during the Self Check-in process. New Zealand is a temperate climate, but as an island nation, note that conditions can change quickly. For more information on climate in New Zealand, refer to the met service website. This resource will give you up to date weather forecasts for all major centers, weather warnings and ski updates for all major ski fields during ski season. The most important thing to bring is your sense of adventure. We only ask that you respect our environment when you travel so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

What time should I pick up my campervan?

Our branches are open between 9am and 4pm every day of the week. If you want to pickup the vehicle outside of these hours there is an additional charge. please notify us and we will inform you if we are able to accommodate your request and how much you will be charged.

It’s really important we know what time within our branch hours you will be picking up and dropping off your Camper. When you are completing your booking, please give us an accurate arrival time in the branch for pick up & drop off. Pick up and drop off outside of these times may cause a delay and impact the time spent at the branch. If you wish to change these times you must obtain authorization from Wanderlust Campers or further fees will apply.

During Your Stay

Can a child seat be fitted to the campervan?

Sorry our campers cannot be fitted with child seats.

What is the safe travel speed for driving the campervans?

The open road speed limit is 100km/hour but we suggest a comfortable speed for driving your campervan is 90km/hour, especially if you have never driven one before. Should you choose to travel below the speed limit, please show courtesy to other road users by allowing them to pass.

Do I have to pre-book camping parks?

It is rare for powered sites to be full at camping parks. The only time it may be a problem is over the Christmas/New Year period continuing to the end of the second week of January and also the first two weeks of February. Bookings may be wise in some of the key tourist centres also.
