There is nothing quite like the excitement of a Lions Rugby tour! In 2017 New Zealand welcomes the return of the British and Irish Lions with the five week event always one of the most anticipated in the sport of rugby – and what better way to experience the Lions Tour than in a campervan!

Discover New Zealand with Lucky Rentals and see the beautiful sights of Middle Earth your own way in between catching all the games (that won't be an easy task!). The trip will be an unforgettable experience for any rugby fan.

Campervans are a flexible way to travel with no need to book hotels each night, you simply take your home on wheels with you! Lucky Rentals offers the lowest rates for campervan and car hire in New Zealand, we have a range of campervans suitable for up to 4 people (and cars up to 8 people) available from branches in Auckland or Christchurch.

The Lions are playing 10 matches during the New Zealand tour which will include three Tests against the All Blacks, one Maori All Black match and six provincial games against Super Rugby teams. Here is the list of games to help you plan your campervan adventure:

  • 3 June 2017 v Provincial Union Team, Toll Stadium, Whangarei
  • 7 June 2017 v Blues, Eden Park, Auckland
  • 10 June 2017 v Crusaders, AMI Stadium, Christchurch

With more than 50,000 overseas visitors expected to visit New Zealand, it has the making of being the biggest ever New Zealand Lions Tour. With so many visitors, accommodation is in high demand (if not already booked out) so make sure you don't miss out! The previous New Zealand Lions Tour of 2005 saw campervans sell out quickly.

Lucky Rentals still has campervans available so contact us today for last minute discounts and make a booking.
