Over 500 motorhomes are currently sitting in Christchurch and Queenstown depots, waiting for New Zealand holidaymakers to drive them back to Auckland by December 31. In a bid to relocate the vehicles, last minute rental site, Standbyrelocs.com are offering the vehicles for just $5 per day over 5 nights, with a free ferry pass for vehicle and driver.
Vehicles also include a full tank of fuel. Most of these two, four and six berth motorhomes come fully equipped with all crockery and cutlery, linen, duvets, bath towels and a shower and toilet.
With school holidays fast approaching, this deal could not come at a better time for families in search of an affordable summer getaway. As it gets closer to Christmas, many families may have missed out on their annual summer holiday due to the rising expense of accommodation. For just $5 per day, the whole family can enjoy all that New Zealand has to offer, without an unrealistic price tag.
It sounds too good to be true but Standby Cars Director, William Brice says, "Our suppliers are now desperate to get the vans back to Auckland so they’re offering families a 5 day holiday through New Zealand for $5. They also have the opportunity to purchase extra days if they wish. This is a win/win situation because suppliers are able to get their vans back and families are able to enjoy a very economical luxury driving holiday."
