5 Top Packing List for Your Ultimate Travel to New Zealand – Everything You Need For a Grand Adventure

New Zealand has a ton to offer for any traveller, from scenic natural landscapes to some truly thrilling excursions. So, if you're planning to visit this wonderful nation sometime soon, here's a helpful packing list to stick to.


Travel Insurance

In general terms, it's always a good idea to nab yourself some insurance when travelling or going on vacation. Travel insurance isn't that hard to get and you should always try to get it secured prior to your flight. New Zealand is often regarded as a safe country to visit and explore but the potential for an emergency is always there. Travel insurance will help you deal with potential accidents and mishaps and will let you enjoy your time here with a far clearer state of mind.


A Neck Wallet

If you're planning to explore the more crowded cities and suburbs of New Zealand, you'll want to keep an eye on your wallet. Again, New Zealand is a safe place for the most part and the rate of crime is low – still, you want to eliminate any chance of getting pickpocketed all the same. One of the best ways to do this is to get yourself a neck wallet. With your important documents and cash safely placed around your neck, even the most skilled pickpocket won't be able to score a payday on your behalf.


Waterproof Casings

All kinds of extreme sports are popular here in New Zealand – in fact, the sole reason you booked a vacation here might be to enjoy a few of these activities. This can include a number of great water sports as well. For example, snorkelling, scuba-diving and surfing are all very popular in New Zealand. Once you're in the water, you'll surely want to capture some moments, whether it's the thrill of riding a monster wave or the serene beauty of a coral reef. As such, remember to pack yourself a waterproof camera – this way, you'll always be able to snap up your favourite moments. Conversely, if you prefer using your phone for underwater photography, you can always invest in a waterproof phone case.


Power Adapters

One thing most travellers overlook when going on vacation is the simple power adapter. See, if you're from America, you might find out that you can't just plug in your phone to a regular power outlet here in New Zealand. This is why you should consider packing a power adapter on your way here. Now, you don't have to worry too much if you forget to bring one, of course. Any prominent Auckland city hotel such as the Avani Auckland Metropolis Residences will be able to provide you with a simple and convenient device.


Bug Spray

New Zealand is blessed with some of the most magnificent and picturesque natural landscapes on the planet. From cascading mountain ranges to dense tropical forests, the exploration opportunities here are virtually endless. However, when traversing the outdoors, you're going to run into a number of nasty insects. Of course, the solution is simple – pack yourself some bug spray!
