RELOCATION deals. Now that’s one of the most overlooked opportunities for those looking for an inexpensive and fun way to explore a destination. Right now, for example, there are dozens of cheap New Zealand campervan rental relocation deals just sitting there waiting to be clicked and most of them are for $5 a day at the time this blog hit the blogosphere.
So, how does it work? The DriveNow campervan rental relocation list is updated each day between 8.30am-9.30am (AEST) for travel in the coming two or three weeks. That’s when the list is fresh and vehicles most likely to still be available. It’s the best time to submit a relocation request as DriveNow is more than likely able to confirm your request. The relocations book quickly and therefore as the day progresses the availability becomes more limited. The number of free kilometres on each deal is the distance between the pickup and drop off location plus 550km. Any travel beyond that is charged at AU$0.55 per km.
What routes and vehicles are available as we type? Try these. And if you miss out this time don’t despair – set a reminder every month or two to see what deals are up on the NZ relocations page
