New Zealand travel 'better by road'

Article content

25 January 2010

Holidaymakers should travel by road if they are looking to explore the best things New Zealand has to offer.

This is the suggestion of Suite 101 writer, Karen Arnold, who noted that this manner of taking a trip allows visitors to gain access to the country's "unique" attractions.

Options available to individuals include campervans, rental cars, buses, bicycles and trains, she explained, but people should keep in mind a few top tips when using these modes of transport.

"One of the best things you can do when planning your road travel is to research the route you intend to take," Ms Arnold remarked.

Winter tourists should also ensure they keep up-to-date on weather conditions, particularly in alpine areas, as New Zealanders do not apply salt to surfaces, which means icy patches can develop.

Tourism New Zealand recently revealed that the country was the recipient of numerous accolades throughout 2009, including operator Whale Watch Kaikoura winning Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Awards.
