Self-drive Tours

Renting a vehicle is an exciting way to explore New Zealand’s culture and diverse landscapes. All rental cars will be organized by Travel New Zealand, and we will only be using companies with new, safe vehicles. There is also the option of hiring a driver or guide if you desire. New Zealanders drive on the left side of the road, so keep that in mind if you’re coming from a country with right-hand-side driving.

Take the wheel and experience New Zealand at your own pace.

If you wish to drive in New Zealand, you must hold a valid international driver's license or a driving permit accompanied by the driver's license that the permit is based on.
