  • make a rough division of the stay (e.g. 3 weeks South Island, 3 weeks North Island?)
  • Travelling in a camper – do I have a self contained vehicle or not? – Plan your route in advance?
  • If you have rented a camper – arrange pick up time and location of the mostly free shuttle service by the provider.
  • download CamperMate App – plus download some maps – so you can use it offline
  • NZ Street Map? You´ll find some at every counter at airport or tourist info, these are most enough and containing most roads
