Join New Zealand’s best value camping membership today and start planning your adventure with our community of NZMCA members.
Your membership is for you, not your motor caravan. As long as whatever you're driving or towing is Certified Self-Contained, you can make the most of all our membership benefits. Even if you're still figuring out which type of motor caravan is right for you, or hiring before you take the leap, you're welcome to join our community and start your adventure.
Here's what $240 (including $150 one-off joining fee and $90 annual subscription fee) gets you:
We've paired up with our trusted partners to save you thousands on essentials and adventures. Whether it's deals on Covi insurance, Interislander Cook Stait ferry fares or Department of Conservation (DOC) campsite passes, NZMCA makes exploring our big backyard easier. Plus, a portion of most of your purchases are given back to us - so when you support our key partners, you help fund even more member benefits.
