Wendekreisen is a family owned and operated rental business offering campervans and cars to travellers in New Zealand. We have been operating since 1990 and see ourselves as a responsible business by taking a sustainable approach in regard to our customers, staff, suppliers and the natural environment. Wendekreisen currently employs a team of 28 staff members.
Founded by our family in 1990, Wendekreisen started by offering worldwide airfare ticketing services. However, the business changed direction when our first campervan was purchased a year later. The vehicle was rented and our fleet started to grow.
In 2007 the company went through a range of carefully managed changes. As a team, the family decided to better formalise procedures to improve administrative processes, and to further develop our vision. Over time this decision created standardised maintenance procedures, significant improvements in reservation and fleet management systems, formalised social policies and defined the core values of our organisation. It was formally agreed to monitor and review these changes in regular intervals. At this point in time, our family and staff managed a total of 80 campervans and motorhomes.
The improvements and accreditations were ongoing and well received by our customers. In 2010, we welcomed our last batch of Wendekreisen built Mazda E2000 campervans and grew our fleet to 180 vehicles by 2013.
In 2012, Wendekreisen introduced private health insurance for all staff. The initiative is funding 100% of premiums for full‐time staff. Part‐time staff are funded pro‐rata. The initiative allows staff to receive specialist healthcare without delay nor cost. The scheme also covers pre‐existing conditions.
