You want to be flexible while travelling?

Self-drive tours in New Zealand have become very popular. Both first-time and regular visitors are eager to travel the country independently. Driving conditions are ideal, and outside of the bigger cities you are likely to have the road to yourself. Rental cars offer the ultimate convenience for self-drive tours in NZ.

When travelling you can chose from different types of New Zealand accommodation. Do you prefer to stay in a remote place close to the nature, or in a stylish city hotel including any amenities?

Our New Zealand sample tours feature the best hotels, selected Bed & Breakfasts (B&Bs), and other top-quality accommodation. Enquire today!

Each self-drive booking will receive a free travel kit including atlas, maps, directions and more!
