Rental vehicle companies

If you’re a rental vehicle company and your customers are expecting to freedom camp in New Zealand, the vehicles they rent will need to comply with the self-containment requirements and be certified as self-contained.  


There is a different timeframe to have rental vehicles certified under the green warrant system than for private vehicle owners. You need to get your rental vehicles inspected and certified by a Certification Authority under the new green warrant requirements by 7 December 2024.  


We’ve created a flowchart that helps you understand how the green and blue warrants operate during the transitional period, and to help you understand the rules around freedom camping in New Zealand.
