Self Drive Touring in New Zealand

As well as a great way to see the country, driving in New Zealand is a pleasure in itself. Wherever you go, the roads are quiet, distances relatively short and scenery spectacular.

New Zealanders drive on the left, as we do, and roads are wide and well maintained. Junctions and signs are similar to those in the UK and there is space to park almost anywhere!

Explore as you go

With your hotel safely booked each night, you can spend the day exploring New Zealand’s beautiful countryside. There are natural wonders to discover, National Parks to visit and plenty of activities to keep you occupied.

New Zealand self drive or fly-drive holidays are also an excellent way to meet the locals - stopping off in a country town is a chance to chat as well as shop for supplies. New Zealanders are proud of their country and always pleased to tell you about it.

Choice and flexibility

With Freedom New Zealand, you can vary your self drive route to suite yourself. Our single island and twin island self drive tours are designed to make the most of the number of days shown but, if time permits, you can add extra days at any of the places or even add extra stops en route. Or, if you want to see even more of New Zealand, ask a Freedom New Zealand consultant to prepare a personal self drive itinerary for you.

Freedom New Zealand self drive tours also offer a choice of accommodation. Our standard hotels and motels provide clean, comfortable en suite rooms in great touring locations. Deluxe self drives include a higher standard of accommodation in lodges, country houses and small boutique hotels, with breakfast and some dinners included.

Around the world

Freedom New Zealand self drive holidays can be combined with self drives and other activities in Australia as well as international flights and stopover around the world.
