How does renting out your campervan work?

Through our community of self builders, professional converters, owners and campervan enthusiasts; Quirky Campers is the home of handcrafted campervans. For the rental side we run the website, actively market your campervan, respond to customer enquiries and get you bookings. We are here to help get your listing live on the website and will be available to answer your questions throughout the process. For this we take 18% (inc. GST) of any bookings we generate for you – based on the total rental paid by the customer (after a deduction for insurance) . We work with you to set a price that reflects the features and location of your van and you decide whether to allow pets, travel to festivals, and what days you can do handovers etc. We will make recommendation based on our years of experience and check through all the details of your listing before we launch you.

From our owners...

“Renting out our beloved camper van with the Quirky NZ team has been an absolute breeze! They’ve been alongside us every step of the way, working through the logistics with us as we got set-up to list, and answering all our questions as we’ve started hiring. The Quirky platform makes monitoring reservations straightforward (our camper’s pretty much been booked out since we listed it), and all the information is on hand of hand-overs. It’s always a delight the see the excitement on people’s faces when they arrive to begin their travels in our van, and great to hear their stories when they return – they’ve certainly added to our NZ bucket list. We have no apprehension is recommending Quirky NZ to other camper van owners! Simon & Kendall, owners of Kākāpō
