Motor over to New Zealand for a great value break with Apollo Motorhomes

Head across the Tasman this winter for a break in a cosy Apollo motorhome that will cost less for seven days than a weekend in a half-decent hotel.

Wake up to a different backdrop of spectacular mountains each day or maybe stop by a beautiful stretch of coastline. Go skiing, tramping, wine tasting, bungee jumping – all while taking advantage of Apollo Motorhomes' "pay five days, get two free" New Zealand winter deal.

Fly into Auckland and motor on to events such as the Auckland Food Show (July 28-31), before heading north for some sunshine in the Bay of Islands.

Or go south to the cultural hub and geothermal hotspot of Rotorua, on to popular Lake Taupo and then down to the happening capital of Wellington.

Apollo Motorhomes are also available at Christchurch. Happy campers could pick one up and zoom up to the Marlborough wine region, or down to the ski fields around Queenstown to catch the 100% Pure NZ Winter Games  (August 13-28), or both.

New Zealand might look small but its length from top to bottom means there's lots of miles to cover between major centres and some spectacular scenery to take in along the way.

Motorhome travellers don't have to bother packing up and checking out each day. They can decide their itinerary on the spur of the moment. The only connection they have to make is the one for the flight home.

Apollo Motorhomes are well appointed and heated throughout, so campers will be toastier than they might be in a draughty motor-inn.

They're also super economical.  Until August 31, a six-berth van for seven days is under $NZ600* (plus liability options and associated costs), including the two free days.  Smaller vans are even cheaper. Book a compact Hitop camper on the "pay five, get two free" deal for under $NZ300* for the week.

Clever campers who are happy to travel in winter will also beat the crowds that will descend on New Zealand in September and October for the Rugby World Cup, though plenty of great deals are available for travelling during these months as well.
