New Zealand Travel Checklist


A travel checklist can help you get organised, the preparation is already part of the trip and if you don't wait until the last moment it can get you into the right travelling spirit with lots of exciting anticipation.

Our best advice is to pack your bags as light as possible (maybe unless all your transport and transfers are organised), it will give you more independence and freedom when you move around. After all you'll have to feel comfortable and secure, but don't forget that if you forgot something you can buy most goods in New Zealand after your arrival.
