When planning your tour, You have the freedom to change your mind about a route, explore an interesting town on a whim, or spend extra time somewhere along the way.
Choose your own adventure. Touring New Zealand via self-drive you can customise your itinerary in a way that’s simply not available on a pre-planned tour. You choose your route, your vehicle type, where to stay - your tour will be created to suit your individual tastes and preferences.
