I have worked in the motorhome and travel industry for seven years and have been based in both NZ and the UK. This has given me a wide experience with different nationalities, suppliers and customers, and I love helping people hit the road in the perfect vehicle! Motorhome hire offers flexibility and freedom - sometimes I wish I could go with them!

Living in new Zealand my whole life has given me the opportunity to experience and travel in my own country before I start traveling overseas. My favorite place to travel would be the South Island, - Picturesque sights, Nature and Beauty is a key thing that the South Island offers. This is a place that you'll never forget, and whats a better way to travel and experience this beautiful island that a hotel on wheels. I have always worked in the travel industry, mainly focusing on customer service and sales. What I love about it is that you help customers plan their holidays, ensure they have the best experiences and recommend the best places to visit whilst traveling. Making customers realize what travel is all about - Freedom, Carefree and Fun.
- Favourite motorhome: McRent
- Favourite destination: Scandinavia
- Best motorhome tip: Please be aware of the statutory and bank holidays that are observed by the country you are intending to travel to, as well as holidays specific to that country such as school and tertiary holiday breaks. These periods will see an increase in both demand and rental costs therefore effecting the availability of motor homes. Sometimes a good counter to this increased demand is to book before or after these holiday periods. (It may also result in a cheaper rental!)
I have travelled to Australia several times, Samoa, Singapore various parts of New Zealand as well as most recently Indonesia. My role here has helped me to appreciate the unique experience that travelling using a motor home presents. Some of the destinations I hope to be able to visit soon include, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Europe and South Africa.
- Favourite motorhome: McRent
- Favourite destination: Lyon, France
- Best motorhome tip: Do not book your flights, hotels or camping ground and so on before you actually get your motorhome confirmed. That is a tip for your holiday to start smoothly.

I have been several times to the United States, France, Spain, Switzerland, China, Australia and a lot of Islands throughout the Pacific. Now I enjoy helping others with their holiday plans in a motorhome. I wish to travel to many more countries and among them are the Netherlands, Italy, and Vietnam.

I'm fluent in French and English.

I'm the Account Manager for New Zealand, USA and Canada which means I'm responsible for getting the best deals for our customers visiting each of those destinations.
- Favourite motorhome: El Monte RV
- Favourite destination: Barcelona, Spain
- Best motorhome tip: When hiring a vehicle in a country you have never been to before, always do your homework and pre-book campgrounds. Some are closed during low season and are only opened a few months of the year. There is nothing worse than being stranded in a foreign country without a place to stay.
Working in an industry that allows you to meet and speak with people from all walks of life is most certainly one of the reasons why I have chosen travel as my profession. I have been with Motorhome Republic for the past 8 years so my history with this company has given me a lot of experience. I've traveled all over the world, most recently around Europe where we collected a Motorhome in Italy and returned it to the UK.
- Favourite motorhome: Touring Car

- Best motorhome tip: I always recommend securing the vehicle first to avoid missing out - and then planning your trip.

- Favourite motorhome: Lets Go
- Favourite destination: New Zealand
- Best motorhome tip: Always check the depot operating hours before you book your flights! Those flights are cheap for a reason! Its in your benefit to spend a bit more to arrange flexible flights then having to book overnight accommodation.
I am a young kiwi woman with a passion for travel. I have visited the United States of America, Canada, Hawaii and Fiji and eager to see more! I always take full advantage when I am away on holiday from trying exotic foods to bungy jumping and scuba diving. I do believe that it is a better experience visiting new countries in a motorhome as you will see more of the destination and meet the locals and tourists like yourself at every campsite. Never be afraid to try something new.
- Favourite motorhome: Maui
- Favourite destination: New Zealand
- Best motorhome tip: If you are traveling in a group we can get you some good discounts. The more vehicles you need the bigger the savings but these need to be booked early to avoid disappointment.
I have spent half my time in China and the other half in New Zealand in the last 12 years. I got the chance to visit a number of places in the world including Australia, Indonesia, France, Italy, Canada and Japan in between business trips and family holidays.
