New Zealand is ideal for self-drive holidays. Here you will find quiet, well maintained roads that lead you through some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. New Zealanders drive on the left so UK drivers can feel at home. Avis has 38 branches throughout New Zealand including at all major commercial airports.
