Been to New Zealand twice and hired a camper van on both ocasions 2014 and 2016 we had a wonderfull time. Super clean (not even a fag end on the pavement or road) food very tasty unlike here in uk. People very friendly and helpfull too. It was a bit like driving in the early 1960s nothing much on the roads in the countryside and city easy to navigate. My brother emigrated there in 1996 can see why its not expensive and you feel secure at all times. My tip dont fly from Dubai to Auckland in one hit its 17 hours we much prefer a stopoff in Melbourne three hours then onwards. Hope to see whaf Australia is like next year lots of my Brat airforce friends to visit Western Australia.
