New Zealand may be much smaller than Australia in terms of geography, but that does not mean you’ll be able to travel around it in a shorter time. Road users in this country tend to take a much more sedate approach to their trips, taking the time to drive at a comfortable pace and enjoy the sights. Many of the roads are also more similar to country lanes rather than motorways. If you’ve set a tough itinerary and are planning to travel quickly, you’ll likely find your plans flying out of the window pretty soon after your arrival.
Motorhomes and campervans are very popular in New Zealand because they are a fantastic way to travel and allow you to stop off whenever you feel like it. The country has many great sights to see and the only way to experience a lot of them in one trip is by driving around yourself. Having your accommodation with you is convenient and could also help you save money.
There are all kinds of amazing sights in New Zealand to enjoy on both the North and South Islands, whether it is the Waitomo Glowworm Cave, the geysers in Rotorua or the Remarkables mountain range. A ferry connects the two islands so you can start at either end of the country and make your way to the other. If you arrange motorhome hire some companies will give you the chance to collect your vehicle in one location and drop it off at another for added convenience.
New Zealand promises many amazing sights and attractions and is a wonderful destination for motorhome holidays. Whether you’re planning a long trip or a short one, a motorhome ensures that the drive is just as enjoyable as the holiday itself.
