Are Apollo branches in Australia and New Zealand open?

If a branch you are picking up from or dropping off to is closed, we will be in contact with you directly to discuss your options.
Can I still hire a camper in New Zealand?
In New Zealand, campgrounds are considered essential services and are permitted to stay open during Alert Level 4. However, shared facilities must not be used.
Self-contained vehicles can be used as accommodation by persons that are self-isolating. Self-contained vehicles have a toilet, water and waste facilities and will display a sticker confirming they meet the Self-Containment Standard NZS 5465:2001.
Those using self-contained vehicles to self-isolate are strongly encouraged to stay at commercial camping sites, if available. They must remain at the same site for four weeks or until the Alert Level is reduced. Note that during Alert Level 4, Department of Conservation campsites will be closed, along with many local council-owned freedom camping spots.
Vehicles that are not self-contained must not be used for self-isolation. Those currently living in non self-contained vehicles must find alternative accommodation while New Zealand is at Alert Level 4.
