Interislander Ferry

To make the most of your trip to New Zealand, you’ll need to check out both islands. Unfortunately, our campervans can’t swim, so you’ll need to take the Interislander ferry. There are several crossings each day from Wellington and Picton, so there’s no rush, but between December and February it’s best to book ahead to make sure you get a spot when you want it.

Book with Lucky Rentals

To make your trip as easy as possible, we can sort out your ferry ride for you, just tell us when you’re planning to cross when you pick up your campervan. If you’re not quite sure yet, you send us an email at info@luckyrentals.co.nz or call us toll free in New Zealand on 0800 835 825, and we’ll get it sorted when you’re ready.
