What could be more stressful than breaking down on the side of the road in a country half way across the world! At least after reading this guide you will know where you stand and what you can do about it!

Are you a vehicle specialist and know how to fix practically anything? Then why are you reading this? Drain that fuel and get back on your way! If not, read on.

  1. Kiwi’s are known for their friendliness and can do attitude, first port of call is to ask the service station (or even that friendly looking bloke next to you) for assistance and hopefully they will be able to get you back on the road!
  2. Service station wasn’t very helpful? Next step is to check with the rental car company and see if your camper has break down insurance! Ideally checking their website before you go alarming them over the phone! If you are lucky and this is covered arrange for them to send the mechanic to your location and you will likely see their glorious repair truck within the hour!
  3. If you weren’t so lucky, your third option is to try and get in contact with your insurance company (travel and or vehicle insurance) hopefully you have this! If they are being helpful you will be back on the road in no time! otherwise read on to our last option.
  4. Our final and most expensive option is to call the Automobile Association (0800 500 222), If your not a member this will be rather expensive as you will have to become one! This will be done on the side of the road via credit card. $195 later you will now be covered for road side assistance. The repairer will drain your tank and you will be back on your way!
