Planning your Holiday

There really is so much to see and experience on these stunning islands that in order for you to get the most out of your holiday to New Zealand a little planning is an essential requirement, especially when your time is so rarely unlimited!

We would have no hesitation in recommending Discover the World to friends and acquaintances and indeed we are doing just that.

Tailor Made Service

We know New Zealand well and will tailor make any itinerary to suit your requirements. However, only you know exactly what you want from your holiday, so to help us create your perfect itinerary, simply let us have an idea of your interests, timescale and budget and we’ll take care of the rest, ensuring your time away will be fun and hassle free.

When to Go

New Zealand’s glorious landscapes and range of activities can be enjoyed at any time of year – each of its four distinct seasons, which are opposite to our own, have their own appeal. Summer (Dec to Feb) often brings long, warm days and mild nights, while in contrast the winter months (Jun to Aug) are likely to offer spectacular snowy vistas and are the best time to combine with a Pacific island stopover. The shoulder seasons of autumn (Mar to May) and spring (Sep to Nov) are naturally warmer than winter, yet are less crowded than the summer months. Discover more »

Where to Stay

We can mix and match any style of accommodation, from motels and farmstays to boutique hotels and idyllic lodges and can also make suggestions to suit your specific budget and personal preferences. You can view selected properties by region.

Activities and Excursions

The perfect enhancement to any itinerary there are certain activities or sights that we feel just shouldn’t be missed. You’ll find a wide selection of these for each region. In New Zealand you can be sure that there is always something to suit your own personal energy levels.

Getting Around

New Zealand is an easy and friendly country to travel around independently with an excellent network of roads, bus, rail, and air services. Probably the most popular method of touring the country is on a self drive holiday. Whether travelling by car or motor-home, the light traffic and abundance of stunning scenery makes driving a pure pleasure. If, however, you prefer to travel with a guide in the company of like-minded people, we’ve got that covered too. Discover more »

From preferred airlines, cabin upgrades and favoured stopover destinations, let us know your route and we’ll find the best airfares for you. Discover more »
