Tips for a New Zealand South Island Road Trip
GETTING AROUND SOUTH ISLAND
There are three options I would recommend to travel around the South Island: a car equipped with camping gear, a campervan, or a motorhome.
For Budget Travellers
If you are on a tight budget, your best option is to a hire a cheap rental car from rent-a-dent and camp your way around the island.
For Mid-Range Travellers
Campervans are a great option for those with a slightly more generous budget. Having a vehicle that you can drive around in, sleep in and cook a meal in makes life on the road pretty convenient.
For Luxury Travellers
A fully self-contained campervan or motorhome is one of the most convenient and comfortable way to road trip around New Zealand’s South Island.
Don’t forget to get travel insurance! You never know what could happen. I always recommend World Nomads, if you have tech gear, or Safety Wings, if you’re looking for something more budget-friendly.
