More about New Zealand

For a country that’s only 18% bigger than the state of Victoria and has a population less than the city of Melbourne, it packs a whole lot of amazing experiences into a small space. Plus, an exchange rate in favour of the Australian dollar is nice bonus. Split into two main islands, the North Island is where you'll find the capital of Wellington and the country's largest city of Auckland. It also has proud Maori heritage and rich cultural experiences. On the South Island, also officially named Te Waipounamu, the natural wonders shine brightly. Explore stunning Abel Tasman National Park, the great Southern Alps and beautiful Milford Sound.

This is the perfect combination for a great holiday. You can choose where you want to stay in New Zealand and having unlimited kilometres on the car hire makes it a worry-free trip to explore the North and South Islands. And the 6 nights at a Cook Islands resort, well that's just plain fun!
