New Zealand Holidays
During public holidays, New Zealand roads can get particularly busy and traffic jams can occur. Summer is the busiest time on New Zealand roads, with Christmas holidays for school children spanning from Mid December through until the start of February
If you are planning on travelling during this period, make sure you are prepared by allowing extra time to your travel schedule and drive carefully.
