Buckle up, baby, because Tourism New Zealand is about to take us on a wild ride! We’ll be taking a road trip in New Zealand in a fun, interactive, and sweet-as-bro series of webinars, videos, and live Q&As. Plus – drum roll, please – a heap of prizes and incentives! This is the second-best Kiwi news we’ve heard this year (after the bubble, of course).
While a trip to New Zealand sears itself into your eternal memories, a year without some Kiwi travel plannin’ can leave the old noggin’ a little fuzzy. So, we’re teaming up with Tourism New Zealand to rev the ol’ engine and remind you why travelling Aotearoa by plane, train, car, campervan, RV, or even bicycle is a rollickin’ good time.
Planning a Kiwi Road Trip
The road trip fun starts here: over the next 14 months, we’ll be bringing you the lowdown and highlights from the South of New Zealand to its very top. Revealing the regional highlights along the way, this is the in-depth New Zealand slow trip every traveller wants to take. And you don’t even need to leave your desk (sadly, we wouldn’t be mad about 14 months actually exploring every corner of NZ).
Want to know Central Otago’s hidden foodie spots? Coming right up in August. How about how the best winery tours of Marlborough? December! Want to get savvy about seasonal adventures in Ruapehu? See you there in March.
This is not some boring Webinar series. Well, duh, of course not, as it’s coming from the peeps who hilariously told us to stop travelling under the social influence. In true Kiwi style, this fun and interactive series gets you connected to awesome local RTOs and a next-level opportunity to get your NZ questions answered.
Why Road Trip NZ with Us?
It’s no secret that New Zealand’s spectacular scenery is its drawcard. We’ve mentioned it here, here, and here, and that’s just in the last three months! Like every major movie producer ever, we’re gaga for a gorgeous New Zealand view – whether it’s mountain, lake, valley, or sea.
This is the one road trip where you won’t be crying “are we there yet” as we explore regional New Zealand. Month by month, get reconnected with Aotearoa’s drool-worthy scenery, ample activities, and destination drawcards as the locals share titbits and travel hacks to help you plan your clients’ Kiwi adventures (and perhaps your own?).
Discover Kiwi Gems
It’s pretty challenging to name the best New Zealand travel spots as they are as plentiful as the locals are friendly. However, with the right information, you can wow beyond the standard itineraries and include hidden locations, low-key local eats, and the kind of insider secrets that usually are pre-empted with “we’d tell you, but then we’d have to kill you”. Thanks to our upcoming series, including live Q&As with the RTO (Regional Tourism Operator) peeps that live and breathe their locations, you’ll learn just that. All with the promise that no one gets hurt!
Curious about Queenstown’s Lord of the Ring locations? Ask the specialists this June. Always wondered what made the Lonely Planet gave Taranaki the ‘secret paradise’ moniker. Learn about it next February. Our finale will be next July, with Northland highlights, including the Bay of Islands and Cape Reinga.
Did Someone Say Prizes?
Look, we loved the old days with a roadshow business card draw (mainly because it was accompanied by good food and wine, too). While times have dictated that seeing our friends cross the ditch for an in-person roadshow isn’t currently viable, no one is stopping you from getting your mitts on awesome prizes.
Trust us when we say you’re going to want to ensure your metaphorical business card is in the Tourism New Zealand hat with five flights to be won per webinar – yes five – plus five regional RTO-sponsored gift baskets. Ooh, we hope the Wellington RTOs pack some samples from their epic boutique chocolate stores in their gift baskets (Baron Hasselhoff and Wellington Chocolate Factory, hint hint).
Oh, plus they’ll be cool incentives, too. And who doesn’t love incentives?!
Where Do I Sign up?
Whether you’re a long-standing agent or you’re fresh to New Zealand bookings, this Road Trip series is open to all. To sign up, you’ll need to do… nada! Just ensure your KarryOn emails are hitting your inbox, and we’ll keep you posted for each monthly series.
Chur bro, see you there!
