After a nonstop flight of 24 hours from the UK, do you want to stand in line for public transport, or for a taxi? No, of course you don’t.
That’s why booking Sunshuttle airport transfer service makes perfect sense – a taxi or mini bus to take you and your family or friends to your holiday accommodation is so simple. And it’s all paid for in the UK. Your Sunshuttle driver will meet and greet you on at the airport, and you will travel in luxury and style, hassle free. Who wants stress at the start of their holiday?
Now, some practicalities for a perfect holiday! If you have a British passport, and the right to reside in the UK, and do not intend to stay in NZ for more than 90 days, you do not require a visa. Also, by the time you end your holiday, you must have three months left on your passport before it expires.
At the time of writing, no specific vaccinations are required (unless you have recently visited a country where yellow fever is prevalent) but do check up before you leave. Ensure that your travel and medical insurance is up to date and comprehensive – you don’t want any nasty shocks to spoil a wonderful holiday!
If you intend hiring a car to get out and about, don’t leave any valuables on view (or even in the car). Theft from cars is rife on both islands.
New Zealand comprises mainly the North Island and South Island.
Their summer season is from November to February. If you are visiting the North Island, June to August is the time to ski.
The capital of the North Island is Wellington. Take a ride in the cable car and look out over the harbour, the town and Mount Victoria, visit the zoo (excellent day out for youngsters and adults alike). For a free day out, the Te Papa Museum and learn about the geology of NZ and the history of the Maori people. Here, lectures, talks and entertainment are also free.
Further afield, go horse riding in the countryside at Rotorua, or see the geysers, mud pools and steaming volcanic lakes.
Enjoy wine tasting on the South Island (Queenstown), bungee jumping, boating safari, enjoy the beaches and surf, visit the Sutherland Falls near Milford Sound, or explore the countryside
And at the end of your holiday, your private Sunshuttle transport will collect you from your holiday accommodation and take you to your departure airport, even if it’s not the same one you arrived at. So, when you book, confirm your arrival and departure airport, and we will do the rest!
