New Zealand Your Way New Zealand Your Way provides a range of Self Drive and Seat-inCoach touring modules that are tailored especially for the independent traveller in New Zealand. ATS Pacific New Zealand’s carefully designed itineraries feature three ranges of hotel accommodation, a choice of Standard, Superior and First Class categories, which have been selected because of convenience, service, and value for money. With each itinerary a traveller can choose to travel in a rental car on a Self Drive basis, or on daily tourist class coach services on a Seat-in-Coach basis. All services are pre-booked.

Itineraries

We have carefully planned an array of special and unique New Zealand holidays. These holiday itineraries range from short stays in the North Island only, through to extensive programmes that include both the North and South Islands of New Zealand and that will see you visit New Zealand’s top points of interest. You will find the selection of New Zealand Your Way itineraries on page 5.

Accommodation We have selected the best value accommodation, in three standards. On page 6-9 you will find a summary of the Standard, Superior and First Class hotels included in your package options.

Seat in Coach Option For the ultimate relaxation select a Seat-in-Coach tour which combines daily tourist class coach services, quality accommodation and popular sightseeing activities on Great Sights and Intercity coaches. All coaches have large panoramic windows, air conditioning and comfortable seating. Most coaches have a rest room, on coach video and twin doors allowing easier access. Coach driver/guides are experienced, friendly and willing to help during the touring day. On most sectors they provide an informative commentary and luggage service. Foreign language commentary is also available (through headphones) on most touring routes (Japanese and Mandarin). As these modules are designed for independent travellers, without the structure of a group tour, it is important to note that you will travel with different drivers and passengers each day. The meeting of new friends is one of the highlights of a New Zealand Your Way Seat-in-Coach Tour.

Motorhome Option Enjoy the freedom of touring around New Zealand in a spacious, fully equipped motorhome. Visit beautiful lakes, beaches and mountains as you travel around the country at your own pace.

Self Drive Option For the ultimate flexibility, select a Self-Drive tour, which combines a rental car, quality accommodation and popular sightseeing activities. You will find driving through New Zealand a pleasure. The scenery is superb, the roads of a high standard and the people friendly and courteous. New Zealand’s roads are of a good quality, although sometimes narrow and winding. The majority of main roads are sealed and free of congestion. For your Self Drive tour, choose from a variety of vehicle categories to easily accommodate your travelling party and luggage needs (see page 4).
