Backpacking transport

You are here

In New Zealand every trip is an adventure. With everything so close you'll find a new experience around every corner.

No matter what unique experiences you choose to do in New Zealand getting there is part of the adventure. Hire a car or campervan and drive, or jump aboard a hop-on hop-off bus to explore more everyday.

With a great range of transport options there is something for everyone. Pick up a rental car and explore some of New Zealand’s hidden gems, or join a bus tour to meet like-minded travellers.

 

If you’re after the most authentic Kiwi experience, stay a little long and explore the country in a campervan.

 

For backpackers on a schedule, our regular domestic flights could have you surfing the blue water of the far north in the morning, and snowboarding the southern slopes in the afternoon.
