Learn more about Budgy Campers and what we do!
Our Company

Budgy Campers Ltd was formed in 2016 and sits under the Company name: Tourism and Travel Holdings Limited, TAT has three motorhome brands: Budgy Campers, Euro Campers and Heron Campers.  Specifically, each brand talks to different types of travellers.

Since 2012, Budgy vehicles were operating under the company Euro Campers.  The company restructured in 2016 and the Budgy brand was established.

Our Fleet

Is budget and is made up of four vehicle types – The Budgy Sleeper, Budgy Traveller, Budgy Traveller Plus and the Budgy Familia 6.  These older vehicles have a few miles on the clock, but you can be guaranteed that our fully qualified maintenance team ensure they are absolutely travel ready!

Although many Campervan companies in New Zealand are aimed at the hi-end or middle class customer, Budgy aims to provide a more affordable self-drive holiday for people who want to travel New Zealand on a shoe-string budget.  What we do is provide a safe and reliable vehicle at low cost, so you can spend money on seeing and doing more of the exciting activities and attractions on offer.

What makes our Campers particularly inviting is they all carry the official self-containment certification sticker. This gives you the flexibility to stay for free at designated freedom camping locations.  These locations are often set amongst New Zealand’s untouched landscapes giving you that extra special slice of New Zealand that other motorhome travellers won’t get to experience. Whats more, by freedom camping you don’t have to pay for Campground fees!
