Driving Safely

In New Zealand we drive on the left hand side of the road, remember the driver is always sitting beside the centre line.  Our hilly, windy and narrow roads can mean that the journey may take you a lot longer than expected and you may also encounter gravel roads.

AA Roadside Assistance

AA roadside support is available 24/7. Calls are free, dial 0800 734 543.  AA assistance covers any mechanical faults with the vehicle. Breakdowns as a result of damage caused in an accident are not covered. For any queries please call us.

Returning your motorhome

Clean up, fuel up, empty toilet and waste water tanks. If you’re departing from Auckland Airport, we’ll deliver you to the terminal.

Ferry Services

New Zealand has three main islands – North Island, South Island and Stewart Island. You can drive  anywhere in the North or South islands, you cross the Cook Strait between them by ferry. The drive‐on‐drive‐off ferries operate between Wellington (Nth Is) and Picton (Sth Is). The journey takes about 3 hours plus an hour at each end for loading and unloading. It is advisable to book ahead for busy periods like summer and school holidays. A one way sailing for 2 adults and the motorhome starts at $320. We can arrange your sailing for you.

Pets are welcome on the ferries. Kennels need to be booked for dogs and cats can be taken on board in a suitable pet carrier. Please do not leave your pet, especially dogs, unattended in the motorhome.
