A journey from Canterbury to Fiordland offers clients everything from heritage buildings and historic landmarks to outdoor adventure amidst stunning lakes and mountains.
To ensure your clients are well rested after their flight, we recommend they stay a night or two in their arrival city before collecting a rental vehicle. Driving in a new country can be challenging and will be even worse if the driver is tired. The driver should always be well rested, take regular breaks during the journey and plan to drive for only 1-2 hours at a time.
New Zealand has unique road rules and driving conditions that your clients may not be used to. For a safe and enjoyable journey make sure your clients know where to find information on New Zealand’s road rules before they depart for their holiday.
On arrival in Christchurch your clients can enjoy a leisurely day exploring the largest city in the South Island. They can take in the sights, taste quality local food and wine and browse the shops.
