Your guide to affordable campground stays during the off-season

CampSaver is an NZMCA member benefit providing yet another low-cost parking option.

With CampSaver Winter, you can find a range of affordable campgrounds at your fingertips, making travelling in the off-season easy - and you don’t have to break the bank to do so!

We’ve partnered with select campgrounds nationwide to offer members a guaranteed, attractive low-rate on campground stays in the off-season.

After a first successful year of CampSaver, we brought it back for another year, bigger and better. Just like 'Motorhome Friendly' and the Events program, CampSaver started off small but we need members to support our campgrounds in making it grow even bigger for years to come - it's a win/win for both members and campgrounds! 

SIMPLY PRESENT YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD AT ANY OF THE PARTICIPATING CAMPGROUNDS AND REQUEST TO USE THE 'CAMPSAVER RATE' (*T & C's apply)

 

The Rate:

In a vehicle, per night, on a powered site - 

$20 2x adults
$15 1x adult
$10 Each extra adult (exceeding 2)
$5 Per child (at the ages chosen by each camp)

PLEASE CALL AHEAD. POWERED SITES ARE SUBJECTED TO AVAILABILITY AND IF ONE IS NOT AVALILABLE A NON-POWERED SITE WILL BE OFFERED AT THE SAME RATE.

CampSaver is in effect from April 1st – October 31st for the year 2020. This is the period to which the rate can be redeemed.

The Participating Campgrounds:

IMPORTANT: Please check the ONLINE Travel Directory or Travel App before you go. This list does not contain the full information about campgrounds. Search for a campground using the Site ID (i.e. #1234) located in the list, next to the camp name. APPLICATIONS FOR NEW CAMPS TO JOIN CAMPSAVER ARE CLOSED.
As first published and seen in The Motor Caravanner April/May 344 & June/July 345, here are the pages featuring CampSaver. Check out what's great about our participating, including what they offer and what's nearby to help you find your next camp to stay at. NOTE: More campgrounds in the magazine issues to come - Aug/Sep & Oct/Nov.

Check out the ONLINE Travel Directory or Travel App to find out the below conditions for each campground:

Each campground has their own definition of what they consider a ‘child’ & may choose to offer specific ages free of charge.
There may be an additional fee for use of any facilities. Facilities offered and their costs will be different at each campground.
A campground may be closed entirely during the CampSaver period where the CampSaver rate will be unavailable to be redeemed (e.g. for maintenance or unsuitable to park due to weather conditions).
All public holidays/long weekends are excluded from this program, however campgrounds can choose to offer the CampSaver rate during these dates. Enquire with the campground whether they are offering CampSaver during this time.
All campgrounds determine the max length of time a person can stay at their campground on the CampSaver rate. When choosing to stay past this time, one must move along, or pay the current rates (aka. non-campsaver rate). For use of CampSaver longer than the max. stay, please enquire in advance with the campground, negotiation may be possible.

Terms & Conditions when claiming the rate:

CampSaver is only for active, financial NZMCA members. Memberships are non-transferrable and should not be lent to non-members for them to redeem the rate. Campgrounds are entitled to request secondary proof of identification, if necessary to verify this.

A membership card (or silver financial card) should be presented at campgrounds & the CampSaver rate requested to be used. Failure to mention or ask to use the rate may result in the campground charging their normal rate.

For a non-member travelling with an NZMCA member, to have the rate extended to them they must be travelling in the same vehicle as the card holder. If they are travelling in a separate vehicle they are not entitled to the discount.

Select participating campgrounds have a limited number of powered sites. It is a first come, first serve basis, and if powered sites are not available, a non-powered site will be offered.

Introducing a new season of CampSaver

We're excited to announce that for the first time in 2020 we will be adding a seperate season to CampSaver. There will now be two seasons - Winter & Summer - both with the promise of affordable costs, but due to the circumstances of the seasons they fall within, the two programs will be slightly different. 

More details about CampSaver summer will be released in August - so watch this space! A brand new season will bring about a different list of participating campgrounds, a different rate - and of course - a different duration + exclusions. 

A list of participating will also be avaliable alongside the Oct/Nov Magazine.
