Haere mai (welcome) to
New Zealand Travel Showcase.

It's time to make those New Zealand travel dreams come true!

Aotearoa (Maori, meaning "Land of the Long White Cloud") is a truly amazing country, and it's waiting for you with open arms!

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

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.
