Cheap, No-Frills New Zealand
Campervan Rentals

Hugo is a cheap way to travel New Zealand. Perfect for the backpacker-on-a-budget or any independent traveller, Hugo campervan rentals are older, higher-mileage vehicles. And whilst Hugo Campers are a little rough around the edges, they are comfortable, economical yet rugged and reliable.
We also support you on the road with our 24 hour roadside assistance programme. So save on your transport and put it towards that once-in-a-lifetime New Zealand adventure. Because to hire from Hugo campervans is cheap…Real Cheap!

An Hugo Campervan is a great way to experience this wonderful country of ours…

  • Really great value! Hugo’s ‘rough and ready’ campers are available during summer from as little as $29 per day.
  • 24 On the Road Support. If there’s an issue with your camper, we have 24 hour roadside assistance to keep you moving.
  • Easy to Drive. Our campervans are rugged, reliable, comfortable…and really easy to drive.
  • Easy to Book. Use our online booking system. A $99 deposit will reserve your Hugo camper for the summer and that deposit is fully refundable if you cancel just 7 or more days prior to your scheduled camper collection.

And whilst New Zealand is now operating under ‘Lockdown Level 1’ (brilliant!) we’re still taking measures to ensure we have good systems in place so that our clients and staff remain safe. Therefore, please note the following:

  • Campervan collections will be by appointment only. This is simple to do and can be arranged when you make your reservation using our online booking portal or you can liaise with us via phone or email. We’ll do our best to meet your requirements, but we are introducing this measure to…
  1. Ensure we are appropriately resourced and prepared for your arrival.
  2. Make sure we adhere to social distancing recommendations by scheduling ‘pick-ups’ and ‘drop offs’ at staggered intervals.
  • ‘Contact tracing’ is still really important and whilst we’ll have most of your details on file, we will also need a New Zealand contact number. We can provide you with a NZ SIM card if required (free).

So think about Hugo Rentals for a cheap New Zealand road-trip and please stay safe out there.
Thank you
