PEACE OF MIND

It is important to know that you’re booking your holiday with a financially secure and fully bonded tour operator and that your money is protected. ANZCRO is fully licensed and bonded with ABTA, ATOL and is an IATA accredited agent meaning that all flights, air holidays and land arrangements booked by us are fully protected.

GETTING TO NEW ZEALAND

Over a dozen airlines will fly you directly from the United Kingdom to New Zealand with most offering multiple stopovers en route in the United Arab Emirates, Asia, Australia, North America and the Pacific Islands. Airfares will vary depending on the time of year, your preferred airline and your chosen class of travel but ANZCRO will find you the best deal available that suits your travel needs… simply have your agent contact one of our travel specialists for details and prices.

ENJOY A STOPOVER ON YOUR WAY

Unfortunately, there is no escaping the fact that New Zealand is about as far away from the United Kingdom as you can fly and the travel time is roughly the same whether you fly via the East or West. However, this means that you can take the opportunity to stopover in new and exotic destinations for very little extra. If time and budget allows, we strongly recommend taking advantage of the many stopover packages ANZCRO can offer.

MEET NEW FRIENDS ON AN ESCORTED TOUR

An escorted coach holiday is a great way to sit back, relax and let someone else do the driving. New Zealand truly is a great touring destination and your professional, friendly Coach Captain will ensure every aspect of your tour runs smoothly while providing you with a witty, informative commentary. Share new experiences with fellow travellers from all corners of the globe and make new friends on a tour that will leave you with lifelong memories of a wonderful journey through one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

All of our staff have travelled extensively to this part of the world, with many having either lived or visited there many times. They are only too willing to share their expertise and love of New Zealand by helping you create your perfect holiday. And with offices in Australia and New Zealand, you will never be far from an ANZCRO helping hand should you need it.

TAKE TO THE ROAD ON A SELF-DRIVE HOLIDAY

Driving around New Zealand is relatively easy and stress free by international standards. Highways and roads are well maintained and easy to navigate and you will thoroughly enjoy the freedom of driving on open, largely empty roads surrounded by spectacular scenery. Our pre-planned self-drive holidays feature a choice of accommodation, from self-catering motels and apartments, to bed & breakfasts, hotels, boutique stays and luxury lodges. They also include your choice of rental car, sightseeing activities, Interislander ferry, some meals and even airport transfers. Some itineraries also include scenic train journeys on the world famous TranzAlpine and Coastal Pacific. The featured holidays can be changed to fit in with your own individual travel needs or one of our specialist consultants will be more than happy to make recommendations and tailormake a self-drive holiday just for you!

GREAT HOLIDAY IDEAS

With so much great product on offer, let us take away the stress of coming up with the perfect holiday.

We offer the largest choice of accommodation, transport and sightseeing available anywhere... but should you prefer to travel as part of a group, we can book all of New Zealand’s leading escorted coach tour companies and will find you the tour, small or large, that best suits your travel plans.

ACCOMMODATION RATINGS

Star ratings are approx. only and intended to help you gauge the level and type most suited to your needs. Wherever possible we have used the New Zealand official Qualmark rating, which means properties have undergone a rigorous, independent assessment.

As not all properties are Qualmark rated, we have tried to estimate an approx. star rating for the remainder.

We stress that this is a guide only.

We do not take any responsibility for a change in standards. It is also important that you recognise the difference between styles of accommodation 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.

With incredible shopping promenades and high-end restaurants to cheap-and-cheerful markets and a lively nightlife, and there's one thing for sure - this modern metropolis will keep you in awe.

HONG KONG SINGAPORE DUBAI KUALA LUMPUR

One of the most fascinating cities in the world that will capture you as soon as you arrive. This sprawling metropolis boasts amazing food, stunning skyscrapers, and some of the most amazing shopping around. Whether you’re after a luxury holiday with spa pampering and other delights or an adventure holiday exploring the city’s enigmatic history, buzzing streetscapes and cultural idiosyncrasies, Hong Kong has much to offer everyone. Enjoy the sophistication of the west with the charm of the East, take a tram to Victoria Peak (best time to visit is near dusk) or head to Macau on a high-speed ferry.

Occupying an almost indistinct location near the centre of Peninsular Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is an Asian super city where the soaring skyscrapers and ritzy shopping malls are often outshined by the aromatic street foods and Malaysian cultural curiosities. KL, as it is often referred to by locals, has its fair share of must-see attractions too. The Petronas Twin Towers are high on everyone’s must-see list, but just as impressive is the Jamek Mosque, just a few minutes away. There is also a great range of museums and galleries to keep the culture lovers happy. This city has attractions for every taste.

USA (LOS ANGELES)

Break your journey at this popular U.S city so you can rub shoulders with the stars. Go window shopping on Rodeo Drive, spend a family day out at the Universal Studios or spend a relaxing afternoon at the beautiful Huntington Gardens. There are the tourist traps that lure in even the most discerning of travellers, but that keep everyone entertained, such as the Hollywood sign and Sunset Boulevard. And then there are the beaches – Venice, Malibu and Santa Monica all provide a gorgeous sandy setting to your days.

COOK ISLANDS TAHITI FIJI

The Cook Islands are a uniquely wonderful collection of 15 small islands in the South Pacific Ocean. Soon after landing in Rarotonga, you can be kayaking on the crystalclear lagoon, sipping on your first cocktail or relaxing poolside at your beautiful resort. Rarotonga, the hub of the Cook Islands, has so much to see and do, yet remains unspoilt. No traffic lights, no McDonald’s, and no building taller than the highest coconut tree. After Rarotonga, Aitutaki is the second most visited island in the Cook Islands. Secluded and romantic, it holds a compelling allure for honeymooners, many of whom choose this haven for the duration of their stay. You can look forward to languid, leisurely days simply reveling in each other’s company and the jaw-dropping surroundings. Work on your suntan lazing under a coconut palm, relax with a massage or explore the island by cycle or motor-scooter.

Welcome to Paradise. With 118 individual islands and a history of visitors from faraway lands that never leave, diversity of people, cuisine, art, terrain, wildlife, and language tell the story of French Polynesia. Crowned by a circle of majestic peaks, Tahiti, the largest island in French Polynesia, towers over the ocean like a proud and royal Queen. Moorea rises magically out of the ocean like a cathedral. High, sharp, inspiring green spires, crowned by clouds. Bora Bora island will make you feel love at first sight. With ocean views of turquoise waters resembling an artist’s palette of bright blues and greens.

Comprising of 333 islands, the archipelago of Fiji is a picture-perfect nirvana of blissful beaches and crystal-clear waters. The pace is slow, and the landscapes are naturally beautiful, the friendliness of the locals where nothing it too much and sensational water sports only add to the enviable charm that makes Fiji such an amazing destination. Denarau Island is Fiji most exclusive resort enclave and is a short 20-minute drive from Nadi Airport. The Coral Coast’s laidback vibe and huge range of things to do, make it a firm favourite for families and cultural adventurers and there’s no denying that the Mamanuca and the Yasawa islands are top contenders for Fiji’s most picturesque region. When you land get ready to set your clock to Fiji time.

SELF DRIVE HOLIDAYS

TAILOR MADE HOLIDAYS

If you are looking to discover New Zealand independently, then one of our self-drive touring holidays could be just for you. Our inclusive packages include your choice of vehicle, accommodation type, meals and sightseeing. All of our itineraries have been meticulously planned to produce balanced itineraries with manageable driving times, great accommodation and touring routes chosen for their scenic beauty.

TAILOR MADE ITINERARIES

The self-drive holidays featured on the following pages can be changed to suit your own personal requirements or we can come up with a customised itinerary for you if you prefer. Simply have your travel agent contact us with your specific requirements or let us suggest an itinerary for you based on your individual travel needs and interests.

ACCOMMODATION & SIGHTSEEING

There is a wide variety of accommodation available throughout New Zealand, from self-catering motels and apartments to hotels, boutique bed and breakfasts and luxury super lodges. All itineraries shown can be priced using your preferred style of accommodation. Our self-drive holidays also include many of the ‘must do’ activities and you are welcome to either add more or substitute them for other sightseeing attractions. We do recommend pre-booking these as much as possible, especially during the busy season (Nov-Mar), to avoid the disappointment of arriving at your destination to find that some excursions have been sold out and are not available.

STRESS FREE DRIVING

Driving around New Zealand is relatively easy by international standards. And ANZCRO make it even more stress free by including that little bit extra. Unlike many other companies, we have no hidden fees. We will arrange your rental vehicle on your behalf and the cost of your hire includes unlimited kilometres, full vehicle insurance (nil excess), airport and ferry pick up fees, additional driver fees and 24 hour emergency roadside assistance. All self-drive holidays have been priced using a mid-size rental car but larger vehicles including family sedans, MPV’s and 4WD’s are available upon request.

DRIVERS LICENSES

A valid International or current National drivers license is required for all drivers and must be presented when you take delivery of your rental car. It must have been held for a minimum of 12 months and be written in English. The minimum age for drivers is 21 and an additional charge is applicable for drivers aged 21-24 years.

SOME HANDY DRIVING HINTS

Here’s a few driving hints to make your self-drive even more enjoyable. Remember that driving is always on the left hand side of the road and you must not park on the right hand side of the street facing on-coming traffic, except in a one-way street. Always keep to the legal speed limits as indicated on the road signs.

The open road speed limit is 100km/h and the maximum in urban areas is 50km/h. Speed and distances are measured in kilometres and although distances may appear short, New Zealand roads often include hilly, narrow or winding terrain that might slow down your journey. And you must always wear your seatbelt, whether you are seated in the front or rear… and using your mobile phone whilst driving is both dangerous and illegal and you will find that this is very strictly enforced by traffic officers.

MOUNTAIN, SURF AND WINE EXPERIENCE

Western North Island encompasses a variety of landscapes including the dramatic snow-capped peaks of Mt Taranaki, Mt Ruapehu, Mt Tongariro and Mt Ngauruhoe, while further south are rolling farmlands, all bound by a pristine coastline. For connoisseurs of the grape, Hawke’s Bay and Wairarapa region gives you a 350km touring route through world-class wineries. Be sure to call into the Martinbough Wine Centre.

TOP NATURAL ATTRACTIONS:

» Located in World heritage listed Tongariro National Park, 2,797m high Mt Ruapehu is the North Island’s highest peak and a popular skiing and hiking destination.

» In Feb 1931 an earthquake registering 7.9 on the Richter scale levelled almost all the buildings of Napier. Napier’s famous Art Deco reputation is a result of the massive rebuilding at the city in the Art Deco style so popular in the 1930s.

» Mt Bruce National Wildlife Centre has an important breeding and research program for native birdlife and home to the rare white kiwi.

FAREWELL SPIT TOURS

This is your chance to visit one of New Zealand’s undiscovered gems. At 35 kms long and more protected than a National Park, public access to Farewell Spit is usually restricted to the first 4 kms, however this tour travels the full length of the spit aboard a robust 4WD vehicle.

Farewell Spit Eco Tour - Highlights includes Cape Farewell, the South Island’s most northerly point and home to seals and their pups. Fossil Point, where old fossils expose themselves among the rocks and sea life abounds in rock pools nearby. 30 km along the ocean beach is the lighthouse reserve, where we pause for 45 minutes or so to climb the lighthouse, check out the view, learn some of the Māori legends about the spit, have refreshments in our lighthouse Keeper's cottage and soak up some history. Returning from the lighthouse, we climb a sandhill for panoramic views of the ocean beach, the parade of dunes along the centre of the spit and the inter-tidal plain where the migrant waders from the arctic circle feed during our spring, summer and autumn. Farewell Spit truly is a nature-lover’s paradise. Departing from Collingwood, tour duration is 6.5 hours. As you travel along the beach, actual departure times are dependent on the tides and will be advised on confirmation of booking.

Note: As it is 2.5 hours drive from Nelson to Collingwood, we recommend over-nighting in Takaka pre or post this tour. Other tour options available on request.

MILFORD SOUND OVERNIGHT CRUISE

When the day visitors depart a silence descends on Milford Sound. Be one of the privileged few to experience the long southern twilight and the dawning of a new day in this magnificent World Heritage region. You’ll start by departing from the Milford Sound wharf in the late afternoon before cruising through Milford Sound accompanied by our specialist nature guide. They’ll explain the history and geology of the area and be on hand to answer your questions.

This cruise style is relaxed, allowing plenty of time to view the fiord’s spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife – you’re bound to encounter seals and, if you’re lucky, maybe dolphins and penguins too.

The Milford Mariner then anchors in a sheltered cove. From here you can join the guide and explore in the vessel’s tender craft (small boat) or kayaks. If you prefer, you can simply relax on deck and soak in the beauty of this amazing place. If you’re feeling brave there’s always the option of a refreshing swim too. All activities are weather dependent.

As evening falls, you’ll enjoy a delicious carvery dinner in the dining saloon – a feast prepared freshly by our on-site chef. Then it’s time to relax in the company of your fellow traveller, indulge in some star-gazing and story-sharing or simply retire to your private cabin. The next day you’ll be able to dig into a hearty breakfast before heading back out to the Tasman Sea (weather permitting) and exploring more of the fiord.

Milford Mariner: Purpose-built and designed along the lines of a traditional New Zealand coastal trading scow with gaff-rigged sails, the Mariner is ideal for those who enjoy comfort combined with activity. The vessel sleeps 60 guests in private twin/double cabins with ensuite bathrooms. There’s plenty of room to observe the incredible scenery, either from the spacious decks or from the comfort of the observation lounge. Or go exploring in one of the 30 kayaks or two tender crafts.

Includes: A three-course dinner and full cooked and continental breakfast. Departs: Daily from 4pm, Returns 9.15am the next day.
