Having decided last year that we would travel around NZ in a motorhome, we did a lot of research in the UK on what sort of van we would be happy with. We fell for the Swift Kon-Tiki and set about finding if any were available to hire in NZ. Iconic jumped out as specialists and we could not have chosen better. Everything was easy and there was a great deal of pre-holiday support, advice and guidance from Kelly.
We particularly wanted to travel both islands and so it was important that we could pick up the van on the North Island and return it on the South Island. This was no problem for Iconic.
We were met at the Auckland depot by Julie who could not have been more helpful and very patiently explained all the many things that we needed to know before travelling.
The motorhome itself was all that we expected and were very pleased that we had chosen to go for the top end of the range.
We spent a very happy 3 weeks travelling around both the North and South Islands and were very sad to have to return the van to Kelly in the Christchurch depot. It was great to put a face to the person that we had so much help from via email over the previous few months. As we had a midday flight to catch it was a bit rushed but nothing was too much trouble, including her sending the 3 pairs of spectacles by post that I managed to leave behind!
We saw many motorhomes on our travels and the Swift Kon-Tiki stood out by a long way. Anybody wishing to travel to NZ for a motorhome holiday should try one and do it using the services provided by the Iconic team.
We rented a super motor home from ICONIC, admired by other campers throughout the holiday. Everything we wanted. Kelly and her team were really helpful and everything went smoothly. We had an unforgettable five weeks.
