Travel Insurance for New Zealand

New Zealand deserves its reputation as one of the world’s most rewarding travel destinations. It’s a geologically dynamic country bestowed with breathtaking landscapes (as showcased in Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings) that brings in a steady influx of tourism to the country each year. Visitors flock to contemplate the Milky Way at Lake Tekapo, listen to a bird song concert in Zealandia, or take a romantic cruise on Lake Rotorua, an area thriving with Maori culture. Travellers’ highlights include kayaking through Milford Sound’s calm waters to catch sight of local seals and dolphins while marvelling at the high rock cliffs and cascading waterfalls; savouring quintessential Kiwi foods like mouth-watering Māori hāngī in Rotorua; and soaking up the glittering lights of millions of glow worms in the Waitomo Caves.

New Zealand; ‘The adventure capital of the world’, promises an adrenaline-fueled holiday with exhilarating activities like hiking, bungee jumping and skydiving, set to thrill your hearts and also keep you hungry for more. A word of advice for fellow Malaysian travellers would be to plan your meals as New Zealand can be quite remote, and also get quite cold at different points of the year so be sure to secure your sustenance. Moreover, since most stores close after 5pm, it would be wise to pack your favourite snacks to have on the journey. From the north to the south islands there is so much to see, but before you get lost in New Zealand’s raw beauty, make sure you stay safe and purchase travel insurance for New Zealand.
