Spaceships NZ

Travel New Zealand in a Spaceship!

Unlike the common NZ Campervans and Motorhome rentals, Spaceships are great to drive and are custom fitted with all the essential features you’ll need to sleep, eat, listen to your favourite tunes and travel in New Zealand.

The ultimate vehicle for adventure in New Zealand's outer space; think modern interpretation of a 'VW Kombi'. They start with quality Toyota 'people movers' and custom-fit them (in their own Spaceship factory) with the things that you need. This way you get the best possible combination of value for money and key usable features in a vehicle that is great to drive.

You will also get access to their 17 years of experience being at the leading edge of experiential tourism; they offer New Zealand travel information, suggested NZ itineraries and advice on where to go and discounts on more than 40 great activities throughout (New Zealand) – so you really can get the most out of your time in New Zealand.

Here are great advantages to take travel with Spaceships:

• HOT skiing deals and 2 for 1 activity deals around New Zealand with each Spaceships hire.
• Only Spaceships have two sleeping options where you can extend the bed internally or externally. In winter we recommend the internal sleeping option on colder nights when you can extend your full double bed internally and have the back door shut. An extra duvet is included for FREE over the winter months to keep you extra cozy and warm. Plus Spaceships are insulated like a good car keeping you far warmer than if you were staying in an ordinary sleeper van.

- Good vehicle for a short road trip (10 days). If you're going for a number of weeks, I'd go for one with more space as it is a bit of a pain after a while lifting up your bed to get to...

Had a great time - definitely the best way to see NZ. Just be aware that the older models are pretty thirsty, so you end up spending nearly the same again on fuel.

We found the layout of the spaceship to be less ergonomic compared to other campervans of a similar spec we have used. The van was of an older model but we had no problems during the 4 weeks we had...

Enjoyed the trip in our capmervan. The vehicle contained all the necessary gear. I believe that all companies should loan snow chains as a refundable deposit not charge so much which is non...

Spaceships NZ Insurance

Excess Reduction Options
You are required to take one of the following Excess Reduction Options:
Rocket, Beta 2, Beta 2S, Dream Sleeper Mini Vehicles
1) Standard Bond:
This has an excess of $3000 and is included in the day rate.
2) Partial Excess Reduction: Reduces your excess to $1500 (Pay $20 extra per day)
3) All Inclusive: $0 excess plus added cover (Pay $30 extra per day) The Excess Reduction Options apply for all ages.

Dream Sleeper
1) Standard Bond: This has an excess of $5000 and is included in the day rate.
2) Partial Excess Reduction: Reduces your excess to $4000 (Pay $45 extra per day)
3) All Inclusive: $0 excess plus added cover (Pay $60 extra per day) The Excess Reduction Options apply for all ages.

Standard Bond 
If you decide to risk it and not take the All Inclusive package, you are responsible for the excess of $3000 or $5000 for Dream Sleeper. This is the amount you will have to pay for any damages, and applies per incident regardless who is at fault. The excess will be deducted in full immediately upon report of an incident or accident. A non-refundable bond-handling fee of $75 applies for any damage or accident.
The excess will be refunded less the bond handling fee only if we are successful in recovering the full cost of the damages from the third party. We accept Visa, Visa Debit and MasterCard. Cash Passports or Travel x are not accepted. The bond is only frozen, not deducted from your account.
You also agree:
(a) You must provide credit card details to us at the commencement of the Rental Period for the purpose of freezing the Bond. We do not deduct the funds but sufficient funds must be present on the credit card at the time of Vehicle pick up.
(b) In the event of an accident regardless who is deemed at fault you will pay the daily repair fee, which is the agreed daily rental rate for each day the vehicle is off the road being repaired up to a maximum of 7 days. You will also be responsible for all associated costs in returning the Vehicle to the agreed rental location (Covered with the All Inclusive)
(c) The Bond will be debited regardless of any insurance purchased via a third Party.
(d) The Bond is fully refundable provided no damage has occurred to the Vehicle, when it is returned the correct location at the right time; with a clean, rubbish-free interior and the exterior panels are clearly visible so any damages can be seen.
(e) We reserve the right to bank the Bond after the return of your Vehicle for any un-reported fines an damages to the Vehicle or third parties and their property.
(f))Third party insurance is not compulsory in New Zealand and claims can take months to resolve. Where the third party causes damage, you may be held liable for all damages even if it was not your fault, therefore we reserve the right to bank and not refund the bond.
(g) In the event the driver’s credit card declines we reserve the right to process the bond from any other person(s) name on the Rental Agreement or person(s) that paid for part of the Bond.
PLEASE NOTE: If Spaceships is unable to freeze the full bond you will be unable to commence the hire unless you purchase All Inclusive.

Vehicle theft and break in
We suggest having your own travel insurance to cover any associated costs in the unlikely event of a theft or loss of belongings. The Vehicle is insured for damages caused by break-in but the removable contents are not and will be your responsibility while the vehicle is on hire. We accept no liability for your personal belongings. The daily rate fee will still apply (unless you have All Inclusive) and we accept no responsibility for loss of travel days, additional associated costs and no refunds are available. You must produce the keys if the Vehicle is stolen.

Exclusions

(a) Are deemed by us and/or local authorities to have been careless, negligent or wilful in failing to abide by the local road rules, resulting in damage to the Vehicle or any third party vehicle/property.
(b) Abandon or allow the Vehicle to be stolen or sublease the Vehicle to anyone not named on the Rental Agreement.
(c) Misplace the keys or damage the Vehicle due to the use of snow chains
