How it Works

Greenstone Travel Specialising in New Zealand Vacations

Let us use our years of travel experience to organize your dream New Zealand vacation tailor-made to you!

Tell Us About Your Ideal Vacation

First take a look at our sample itineraries for some inspiration, particularly if this is your first time to New Zealand.

Fill out the Contact Us form and we’ll be in touch by email and usually by phone as well. We find it’s often easier and quicker to use the old-fashioned methods of communication.

As well as enjoying a chat, we can find out more about what you’re looking for in your vacation and also what you’re not interested in. This helps us to tailor the route, accommodation and experiences accordingly.


We Prepare a Personalized Itinerary

With the dates of your vacation, how many days you have, your budget and your wish list to hand, we’ll prepare an draft day by day itinerary. We’ll include suggested experiences or activities and the type of accommodation we think you’ll like.

We’ll fine tune the itinerary until it’s just right. We’ll email you the full, day by day itinerary and details of your accommodation, transport and activities, together with useful information to help you prepare for your vacation in New Zealand.

We Book Your Luxury Accommodation, Rental Car & Activities

We book your luxury accommodation, rental car and experiences so you can arrive ready to go. We’ve hand-picked accommodation from a range of boutique hotels, welcoming B&Bs and luxury lodges, and for families  we recommend 5-star self-catering motels or apartments.

We arrange rental cars through well-respected companies, with offices nationwide. Satellite navigation systems are included in the bookings, although it’s hard to get lost in New Zealand.


Fees & Payment

The only cost to you is a fee of NZ$280 to cover the costs of preparing your personalized itinerary. We do not charge additional fees for booking accommodation, transport or experiences.

We accept Mastercard and Visa (2% surcharge), or can provide you with our bank details for an international direct deposit.

When You Arrive

We provide you with a detailed information pack which will be waiting for you on arrival at your first accommodation. It includes a day by day itinerary, details of your accommodation, including location maps, rental car booking details, maps and other useful information to help you on your journey around New Zealand.

While you are here we are just a phone call away in case you have any questions or need help.

Terms & Conditions

We encourage you to check the small print, particularly with respect to cancellation terms. Our recommended accommodation providers are often small and rely on confirmed bookings. Many of them are unable to offer full refunds if cancelled less than one month out of your arrival.

We strongly urge you to take out personal travel insurance to cover you in case you need to cancel your vacation or any part of it, and the event of requiring medical attention while you are here.
