Safe driving in New Zealand

​New Zealand has one of the most unique road networks in the world. Rather than four lane super-highways, New Zealand has lush green countryside on each side of the highway, sealed roads nested in the side of steep mountains and clear views of a pea-green ocean as you meander along the coast. Remember, you are on holiday so relax, enjoy the slower pace!

TVNZ Epic West-Coast Tour

This week is an exciting week for those of us at Britz HQ. With stars in our eyes we watched on as Breakfast Sam embarked on an epic west coast adventure in a Britz Campervan.

Unfortunately, the weather didn't play nice and the guys on the road ended up looking bedraggled by lunchtime most days.  

We'd probably advise doing this road trip on a sunnier week than our friends at TVNZ, so we thought we'd share the love and let you in on some of the fun activities they got up to and inspire you to take your own west coast trip.

Take this quiz to enter the competition to win your own Britz road trip!
