But if you are new to New Zealand, planning your holiday can be a confusing process.

How long will I need?

Where should I go?

Should I visit one island or both?

How much will it cost?

Well fear not! Our New Zealand Travel Planner is just the thing you need. It's a handy guide that will help you through your holiday planning process, and will hopefully help to answer all those questions that you might have.

Then it's decision time. Who is going to drive?

We have many customers who prefer to travel at their own pace. If that's you, then all you need to do is hire a car or campervan and off you go, using your chosen itinerary as a guide.
