eNTRY ReQUIReMeNTS

British citizens need a full 10 year passport. We recommend

your passport should be valid for at least 6 months after the

date of your return. Visa entry requirements may vary, so it is

the responsibility of each individual travelling to ensure the

correct documentation is obtained for entry.

UK Sterling

HealTH INSURaNce

NZ provides a high level of treatment in both public & private

hospitals, however these services are not free, except in the

case of an accident whereby visitors are covered under the

local Accident Compensation Scheme for personal injury.

It is strongly recommended that you have your own private

travel insurance.

GOODS & SeRVIceS TaX (GST)

All goods and services in New Zealand are subject to a 15%

Goods & Services Tax (GST) included in our prices. Visitors

cannot claim a refund on this tax.

elecTRIcITY

230/240 volts, the same as Australia & Europe. 3 prong

plugs are used. Appliances designed for DC supply or

different voltages need a transformer.

BaNKING

There are no restrictions on the amount of foreign currency

that can be taken in or out of New Zealand. Banks operate

from Monday to Friday 9am- 4pm and are willing to change

travellers cheques, as are large shops and hotels, however at

a slightly lower rate. Credit cards are accepted throughout the

country with Visa & American Express being the most popular.

Automated Teller Machines (ATM) are widely available.

clIMaTe IMPORTaNT NOTe

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office Travel Advice Unit may

have issued information about your holiday destination(s). You

are advised to check this information on BBC2 (Ceefax page

470 onwards, on the internet under address www.fco.gov.uk/

travel/ or by telephone on 0870 606 0290.

Alternatively, you can contact the ABTA Information Department

on 0901 201 5050 (calls are charged at 50p per minute).

DRIVING

A full New Zealand, Australian, English language or

International Licence is required to hire most vehicles

(& must be sighted at commencement of hire).

Min. age 21 years. Motorists drive on the left-hand

side of the road & operate right-hand drive vehicles.

Wearing seatbelts is mandatory. Speed limits are

generally 100kph (60mph) on open roads & 50kph

(30mph) through towns unless otherwise stated. Fuel

prices vary from NZ$2.20c per litre for petrol to approx

NZ$1.55 for diesel per litre. Don’t drink & drive! At

the time of printing the legal alcohol limit for drivers

was 80mg alcohol per 100ml of blood. Rental cars

are not permitted on unsealed roads. We urge you to

fully read your rental contracts before signing as

conditions vary between companies.

IMPORTaNT

Travel Insurance vs car Insurance - Personal travel

insurance is a contract between the insurance company

& YOU. It is NOT between the rental car company & the

insurance company. Therefore you’ll need to negotiate

a level of insurance cover with the car company &

any claims will be deducted from your credit card. It’s

then up to you to reclaim it from your travel insurance

company if appropriate.

Trains

Let us take the worry out of travel, just sit back and relax and take in the beautiful scenery that New Zealand is so

famous for on some of the world’s best train journeys.

Travel through the heartland of New Zealand’s North Island, hug the rugged Pacific coast between Picton and Kaikoura

or experience the grandeur of the Southern Alps between Christchurch and Greymouth. Each journey offers a unique

way to experience New Zealand.

In 2012 the experience has got even better

Throughout 2012 new carriages that have been purpose built in New Zealand, are being introduced onto all KiwiRail

Scenic services.

To make the most of the spectacular scenery these new air-conditioned carriages feature oversized side windows

combined with unique skylight roof windows for a truly panoramic view.

Relax in specially designed seating configured either in pairs around tables, or as recliners that can be rotated to face

whichever direction the train is travelling.

Below the floor advanced smooth glide air suspension means a smooth and quiet ride.

Although the carriage windows are made of non-tinted, non-reflective glass – ideal for taking photos through – there

is also an outside viewing car where nothing gets between you and a great photo, everytime.

And inside you keep track of the journey with an automated at seat journey commentary via headphones, plus route

information displayed on the overhead HD video screens.

And when it’s time for something to eat or drink, the café car is the place to sample unique and tasty local cuisine

washed down with renowned New Zealand wines or boutique beers.

Want to do it all?

If it’s difficult choosing between rail trips, why not do the lot? Our range of Throughfares connect the North and

South Island destinations by combining the Coastal Pacific train with either the Interislander ferry or a Sounds Air

scenic flight.

important that you recognise the difference between styles of accomm. eg. 5 star motels will not have the same level

of services or facilities as 5 star hotels. Some properties have a range of styles making them difficult to categorise.
