If you have a food allergy or medical condition which needs to be managed on tour, please advise your Booking Agent before departure, and inform your Tour Director on arrival. It is also worth packing a small medical kit, as though there will be pharmacies along your tour, they can be difficult to access, and a prescription may be required for some medications.
Suggested Packing List:
Each passenger is entitled to take one piece of luggage that does not exceed 20kg (44lbs) and 160cm when all dimensions are added together. The luggage regulations vary tour-to-tour, but this will be confirmed in your documents closer to your departure date.
When packing, we recommend casual and comfortable clothing. New Zealand's climate is temperate, with January and February the warmest months (averaging 26 degrees) and July the coldest (averaging 10 degrees). Consider the destination you are travelling to as the climate varies from the North Island to the South Island. Even in summer many destinations get cooler in the evenings. Bring a variety of warm and cool clothing to suit the climate. Pack sufficient lightweight, comfortable clothing to last for a week, and ensure you have appropriate footwear. Drip-dry clothing is easy to launder and does not require ironing.
Great cuisine is an integral part of your Travelmarvel experience, and we ensure that many of your dining events will be memorable holiday experiences. We pay careful attention to the negotiation of our menus, to ensure choice and a healthy variety of quality food that caters to all tastes is offered. Meals are always accompanied by tea and coffee. Meals that are included in your tour price are clearly indicated on your itinerary.
* Dietary requests will always be taken into consideration and fulfilled where possible, but they cannot be guaranteed. If your dietary requirements are strict, please check with your Travel Agent or Travelmarvel concerning catering when booking your Travelmarvel trip.
You will need money to cover refreshments, meals (when not included) and activities on free days. You may also wish to budget for non-touring activities that do not appeal to everyone but will be made available, such as scenic flights, helicopter rides or cruises, to mention but a few.
Most people dress casually on tour, however, if heading into town for a night, you might want to wear something a little more dressy.
