Mercedes motorhomes . . . what can top these models among the best van rentals in Wellington? Safety is assured with fairly new cars, 4-wheel drive, and compliance with safety standards.
All of the campers have a kitchen and shower and due to the enormous space. What’s more, the bed can be left alone without folding it back, especially with the GEM and SAM models.
However, for couples, you can board the 2+1 berth — which is still quite spacious inside with a heater, toilet, shower, and table. No add-on costs are to be charged there too.
Anyway, the campervans are the reason we picked this as one of the companies offering the best van rentals in Wellington. The fleet is great and very fun to drive.
This company’s depots are located in the city centres of Wellington, Auckland, and Christchurch. That keeps the process easy from the pick-up to the drop-off.
- Modern range of fleet
- Complies with industry’s safety standards
- Easy pickup and dropoff
Paul T John commented on Facebook:
“Excellent experience with this wonderful family run enterprise. Maryann and John were very helpful throughout; making our family vacation (First time in New Zealand and first time in a campervan) a very memorable one..
I would surely go with Pacific Horizon again. Thank You.”

“We bought Kiki in November and she’s been perfect for our travels. The car proved it’s very reliable, in 5 months we didn’t have any problems.
Simon kept in touch with us and asked frequently how everything was going. After a couple of months we stopped by and he helped us out with scratches that we made on the car. I have absolutely no regrets in buying our home here.”

This camper was an absolute dream to drive – basically like driving a car but with the luxury of a shower, toilet and bed in the back. I had no troubles at all parking up wherever I wanted for the night and the diesel heater kept me nice and toasty!”
