Auckland, New Zealand (PressExposure) September 19, 2008 -- Maui Motorhomes, Australasia's largest motorhome operator, is celebrating the countdown to summer with a 20% discount on travel taken between 20 October and 14 December 2008 in New Zealand and Australia.
This special offer, for bookings made before 15 October 2008, couldn't have come at a better time. Self-drive holidays are quickly becoming a popular way to tour the country without burning a hole in your back pocket.
"Maui Motorhomes' fuel efficient vehicles are saving international holiday-makers vital cash at the fuel pump," said Maui General Manager of Marketing, Kate Meldrum.
Australia and New Zealand have some of the cheapest fuel prices in the OECD. As they sit fourth and fifth on the table respectively, now more than ever, Maui Motorhome hire is proving to be a budget-savvy and energy efficient way to travel. Current fuel prices in New Zealand are NZ$1.60 for diesel* and NZ$1.98 for petrol per liter*. That's approximately 59 pence and 73 pence per liter respectively.
In addition, Maui's regular service and maintenance checks of its entire fleet ensures that every motorhome rented runs at peak fuel efficiency.
"If the fuel price increased by 15 cents, this would add just over NZ$2 for every 100kms driven in one of our petrol-powered motorhomes and just under NZ$2.25 per 100km for our diesel motorhomes," said Kate. "It's a great value holiday despite fuel price fluctuations."
Travellers can save even more money given the self-catering nature that Maui Motorhomes offer with their superb inbuilt kitchens.
"Our customers love being able to avoid expensive hotel and restaurant costs by cooking and dining in the vehicle, providing unlimited flexibility - even for those on a limited budget. Plus on arrival, all Maui customers receive a free Supermarket discount card which offers them additional savings when stocking up their motorhome fridge and pantry" said Kate.
And, with the current Maui Dazzler special of 20% off rental rates for all two, four and six person motorhomes, there's never been a better time to book. Contact Maui now (24 hours, seven days a week) and enjoy an early start to summer.
