Covid-19 - yes it will end, so start planning your New Zealand self drive adventure now

During March 2020 the New Zealand Government introduced strict laws affecting travel to, from, and within New Zealand. And whilst it's not practical to travel here now, the good news is that these restrictions will not last forever.

So don't get caught in the rush. We encourage you to start planning now for your dream New Zealand holiday.

Our website has loads of great information to help you plan your New Zealand self drive holiday.

And of course if you have any questions, just ask us. Happy holiday planning

We are your New Zealand self - drive holiday experts, and we can make your New Zealand holiday something to truly remember!

What we do.

We specialise in building your perfect Self - Drive New Zealand holiday.

We don't do cruises or coach tours. We simply cater for people just like you who enjoy driving and want to hop into a car or camper van and explore one of the World's most stunning countries.

What can we offer?

We find that our customers fall into one of two categories.

Those who want to just hire a car or camper van and head off across New Zealand, making their own way in their own time.

And,

Those that feel more comfortable with a structured package that can include things like car hire, accommodation, rental vehicle insurance and of course, selected activities along the way.

If you are planning your New Zealand self drive holiday we are ready and waiting to help.

If you just want to hire a car or camper, we can provide market leading rates from all of the major suppliers.

And our sample itineraries are the perfect guide to help you plan your adventure.

But if you want a packaged self drive tour, we have a huge range of set itineraries. Or we can build one that perfectly suits your needs.

A land of "welcome" and incredible natural beauty

Have you ever been to a place so beautiful that it almost takes your breath away?

A place where you can't wait to round that next bend in the road, curious to see if it can get any better. And then it does!

Well, New Zealand is one of those places. The sheer beauty never ceases to amaze us, and no matter where you are in this spectacular country, photo opportunities and jaw dropping moments abound (take a few minutes and have a look at the two videos further down the page).

As a holiday destination there are few places in the World more welcoming than New Zealand. The warmth of the locals will amaze you, and their laid back nature makes for the ideal stress free holiday experience.

And in 2015, on the Global Peace Index, New Zealand was rated the World's fourth safest country*.

And lets not forget that New Zealand is also home to some of the best food and wine in the world.

How they can fit so much into such a relatively small country is beyond us!

Combine this with an uncrowded national highway network, a very favorable exchange rate, and an almost endless variety of things to see and do, and you can see why New Zealand is a favorite holiday destination for so many people.

And you can also see why it's such a great place for your next self - drive holiday.
