Cheap ferry transfer & best ferry deals
Getting from the North to the South Island (or the other way around) is super easy with a Spaceship. Our campervans drive like a car (with all the features of a campervan) and they are classified as a small car for the ferry crossing on the Interislander or Bluebridge ferry. And we have heaps of tips on how to get the best deal on the ferry crossing (incl. discount codes). Whether you book it through our website or have our crew do it, you'll get the same price, always the best deal.
That will save you heaps on the crossing and thus on your campervan costs. Just like the fact that our vehicles are fuel-efficient. Have a look at our campervans and see which one is perfect for you.
