Why More And More Tourists Are Choosing NZ Motorhome Hire?

New Zealand has built a reputation for some of the most wonderful natural attractions on the planet. It boasts pristine ecosystems, flora and fauna that are unique and vistas that will take your breath away. It is no wonder that nature-lovers have the country on their bucket list of places that they would most like to explore. But how best to explore the myriad of natural wonders that can be found in New Zealand?

Many tourists are choosing NZ motorhome hire as the ideal way to get around New Zealand and enjoy both the North and South islands. The increase in tourist numbers over the last decade (driven in part by the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit sagas which were filmed in some of the most beautiful parts of the country) has meant NZ motorhome hire is extremely popular during the high season of December, January and February. (make sure you book your motorhome early to avoid disappointment). What is it exactly that has caused this explosion of interest in the motorhome experience?

Perhaps one of the biggest factors when it comes to choosing NZ motorhome hire is the freedom that it allows visitors to the country. They are free to set their own agenda – free to explore places which might be slightly off the beaten track and free to explore at their own pace. There is simply so much to see in New Zealand that package tours some times neglect some of the most interesting sights in the country. those that attempt to fit everything in (a practical impossibility) will spend only moments at each site. Given the sheer beauty and wonder of New Zealand’s attractions that is not the ideal way to experience the country. With a Kiwi Motorhomes, the tourist can wander (and wonder) at will. Spend as much time as they desire – at the attractions which are of specific interest to them.

Then there is the issue of cost. It is true that hiring a motorhome in New Zealand is not a cheap exercise – but the experience can provide significant cost savings. Being based in one of New Zealand’s cities – and staying at a resort there is always the temptation to visit a new restaurant every night. After all, the food is exceptional. Fresh, organic produce from both land and sea (New Zealand lamb and mussels are only two highlights). But dining out every night can be expensive. Motorhomes allow those who are wandering the country to prepare food (using those wonderful ingredients) themselves – and the savings can be considerable. There’s also a certain wonder to being able to fire up a barbecue under the stars of the clear New Zealand sky. And there are also many free campsites – even more savings are to be had.

There are simply so many reasons why NZ motorhome hire is becoming so popular and the above are only a few of these. If you are considering enjoying the natural wonders of New Zealand then Kiwi Motorhomes might just be for you.
