Heading to new zealand soon. Is it cheaper to hire a vehicle by walking up to the counter on the day or booking a month in advance?
This really depends on the time of year you are coming to New Zealand, there are limited stock with most companies so I'd recommend getting it organized before you arrive, the last thing you want is to delay your trip because no one has a van for you, The price will really depend on what kind of campervan you want, 2 berth 4 berth etc and how long your hire period is. for example the longre you hire period is the lower the daily rate will be, but expect to pay a further $20-$25 per day for insurance, and it is worth getting to drive around NZ.
Hope this helps almost 5 years ago
