The Value of Booking Your NZ Road Trip Early

The Value of Booking Your NZ Road Trip Early
on Jun 5, 2015

The early bird catches the worm, or at least a great campervan rental deal.

"The early bird catches the worm" is a common saying in the English language and applies to a lot of things in life.  Being organised certainly enables you to take advantage of more opportunities than people who leave their planning to the last minute.  In the world of campervan rental the saying certainly holds true and it happens for two reasons: early bookings give the suppliers a bit of surety around the upcoming season and so we are able to negotiate some fantastic discounted rates for you. As well as this, much like the airlines, some motorhome companies employ what is called flex rates. This is where the rates change dynamically according to the demand, as vehicles sell out the remaining vehicles slowly increase in price. The second reason early bookings are good for the consumer is that demand always outstrips supply in New Zealand and Australia for motorhomes (particularly 2 berth with shower and toilet, 4 berth and 6 berth vehicles) through the summer months. As time passes therefore the number of available vehicles decrease, it means not only do you run the risk of not getting your preferred vehicle features but also that the only ones left if you leave it late are those that are more expensive.

To help create a win-win situation, Motorhome Republic has negotiated some great exclusive offers for bookings made in the month of June for travel during the summer season.  These deals are available for a strictly limited period and vehicles will continue to sell out fast, if you are looking for a motorhome or campervan holiday in Australasia this Summer we urge you to take advantage of this great offer and catch that worm, you'll be happy you did.
