New backpacker training module

Tourism New Zealand’s 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist Program have released a new training module showcasing backpacking experiences across New Zealand.

Participants will learn about some of the activities that make New Zealand a great destination for backpackers.

The module begins by helping travel sellers identify a variety of backpacker personalities and determine what experiences would be best suited to them. 

With many backpackers opting to self-drive through New Zealand, the module takes a closer look into the differences between transport options like camper cars, and non/self-contained motorhomes. It also addresses responsible camping, giving travel sellers the confidence to encourage their clients to protect and care for New Zealand during their travels. 

Agents need a score of 85% or more to pass this course. View the module here

The 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist programme is a training initiative designed to improve travel seller’s knowledge of New Zealand, so they can improve their New Zealand holiday sales.
