Walkabout Rentals Campervan Hire


Just seeing if anyone has any experience with Walkabout Rentals?


They look like they have a good product but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of feedback.

Checked Rankers but only has reviews from a number of years ago.

Hello, your message is timely. We read trip advisor recommendation and booked a 15 day trip, using one of their campers, beginning at the beginning of April.

Here is what has happened once they charged my credit card. They stopped communicating with us, when asking questions. They do not tell the truth, when communicating. We required to move our dates, due to business travel...even after a couple emails... They do not respond..

Having rented campers a couple of times in Europe, this was not the level of service I was expecting.

I'm not sure even if they are still in business. Save your money.

Hello, I was wondering if you went ahead with your rental through Walkabout rentals? I have been looking at using them in 2015 but have not been able to get much information from them exactly what is covered in their standard insurance policy or their rental agreement.

Would appreciate any feedback on them.

Thank you for your comments .

You booked through an agent and asked questions through the agent not directly with us at Walkabout, so you will need to please get your information correct before you make statements like this - How can we reply when we received no information ????

Hi,, I found the first few post strange ?

Daughter and myself used Walkabout last Nov/Dec, and they were 100% in all departments

Prompt collection from Auckland airport ( even with being 2 hours late landing) while the Camper was not the newest model, it was reliable and suited to the rental market, and was perfect for our needs

We put near 7000 km on in during our stay, only one thing that bust/broke on collection, just a exterior locker lock,,

Returned to Christchurch 5 weeks or so later, all good, deposit returned when it was due,, and lift back to the airport,,, All in all, they contributed to making the whole planned trip 100 % hassle free

I look forward to using again,,

I rented this Walkabout company several times during the last 10 years.

This story does not come anywhere close to my times with Walkabout.

Always motorhome in a very good state and small things always fixed when asked for.

When email or skype them, they always react within 24 hours.

I recommend this company to everyone when going on holiday to NZ.
