Independent Travel

If you'd love to explore New Zealand more independently, rather than on one of our guided tours, we can help plan your trip so your time and money is well spent, so you stay in gay-friendly or gay owned lodging, and where you’ll meet our wonderful partners who will give you exceptional quality experiences. Not all companies are created equal, and we ensure you enjoy high value lodging and activities that focus on outstanding customer service and authentic experiences. Very often that level of service is found off the beaten path or out of the major tourist centers, and we help you connect with these people. This also helps sustain those small business owners strengthening those local communities.

You have two options for independent self-drive trips to New Zealand with us.

Ready to Go Trips – These are expertly created self-drive trip itineraries designed specifically for independent travellers. They include:

  • Rental car (compact car) with unlimited kilometers and no-excess insurance
  • Pre-booked 3 and/or 4 star accommodation – option to upgrade
  • Domestic transport (ferries, flights) as detailed in itinerary
  • Trip packet containing detailed notes, directions, contact information, vouchers and more
  • Arrival greeting and introduction to New Zealand

‘One of a Kind’ Trips‘ – These trips are designed in collaboration with you, based on your dreams and interests. Using our local knowledge, we’ll design your dream vacation. We’ll listen to what you want, learn how you want to travel, find out what’s important to you in a travel experience, and ensure that’s exactly what you get. Get in touch now to start this process.
