ACE CAMPERVANS - WORLDWIDE YOU DRIVE COMPANIES

Ace Campervans


Hello and welcome to Ace Campervan Rentals.

We are owner operators and have been in the rental industry in Rotorua for many years, hiring caravans to locals and holiday makers.

We recently hired a campervan ourselves and were overwhelmed at the amount of tourists in campervans in the south Island in the middle of winter. We became hooked! so we bought one for ourselves. Since then we have had many enquiries for hiring the campervan, so this is how our story has started. 

Since we had our first adventure, we have had a few more, and there is nothing like being on the road with no time restrictions, with the freedom to go which ever way you like. We have explored a little and have found places we would never have  known existed. And now we are looking forward to many more.

We like to think we walk in other peoples shoes, and like to offer everything we would expect ourselves.

There are currently no terms and conditions for travel during this period. If your rental is during these travel dates, new terms and conditions may apply. Please contact us before booking.
