Escape Rentals New Zealand was established in 2003 by 3 good friends, Peter, Mike and Andrew who saw an opportunity to offer a product with a difference.
We figured that not all people wanted to hire a Motorhome and effectively take away their living room on holiday, but would instead prefer to get away from everyday life and enjoy the great outdoors. Hence the name 'Escape' was created.
We also realized that people wanted to go away, enjoy the culture, sights and delights of a country without having to sell body parts to pay for their Campervan holiday.
We developed a product that seemingly offered the bare essentials, but at the same time delivered absolutely everything you needed to travel and explore a country safely, comfortably, cheaply and
We not only wanted to offer a high quality product with excellent customer service and support, but also wanted our clients to embrace the Escape spirit by converting a boring white van into a work of art.
The decision to sand all the clear coat off a new van and then have artists cover them in paint was not a decision we took lightly.
It was a frightening thing to be trying this concept that had not been tested before...our mates thought we were crazy. The artwork on the Campers goes a lot further than just making the Camper look great, it acts as an interaction piece for our clients when they are travelling and allows them to mix not only with other travellers, but also more closely with Locals and other travelers.
Most people assume the Camper is your own and that you have painted it yourself. The feedback our clients gave us after their Campervan trip reinforced the initial crazy idea as being a pretty good one.
In 2009, with the help of Rob (Our good friend), we collectively set up Escape Campervans USA and applied all the same great things that make the NZ operation a success.
We have looked after tens of thousands of Happy Campers from New Zealand to the USA since 2003.
We look forward to seeing you in America.
