We are preparing ourselves for the busy summer season, the days are getting longer and the year is speeding by.
We have noticed a huge increase in the number of bookings you are making on the secure on line booking site on our webpage.. Thanks for booking with us directly, we appreciate it and are glad that it is working well for you all.
If you are coming to New Zealand intending to have a self drive holiday this summer, I would like to encourage you to wait to pick up your rental vehicle until after you have adjusted to the time change, got over the jet lag and had a good nights sleep. It is a long flight getting here and even though you sleep on the plane on the way over, your body clock will be confused... I think it is something you should seriously consider.when you are making your travel plans.
I would also recommend that you download an app on driving in New Zealand to familiarise yourself with the rules, signage etc. I typed "nz road code" into the app store and paid a few dollars to buy an app that has the same questions as the New Zealand driving test. Although I dont think it is as exciting as playing Gin Rummy on my ipad I have discovered it is a fun and easy way to test how much I really know and a good way to remind me of the rules.
We want you to be able to drive with confidence in New Zealand and hope we can help by giving you hints and honest opinions on how to enjoy a fantastic, safe and stress free trip.
