6 Top Packing List for Your Ultimate Travel to New Zealand – The Essentials for the Land of the Kiwis

New Zealand offers a variety of attractions and experiences for anyone who visits. From stunning natural landscapes to thrilling adventure sports – there's much to see and do here. So, if you're planning a trip to New Zealand, here's what you need to include in your packing list.


A Neck Wallet

Keeping your belonging safe and secure is paramount whenever you're travelling abroad. Now, New Zealand is a relatively safe country and the chance of getting pickpocketed is low. However, if you've been in a long flight, your tiredness is going to show and a possible rogue might single you out. So, why not eliminate the threat of getting pickpocket completely by getting a neck wallet. This way, not even the most adept thief will be able to nab your valuables away.


Power Adapters

Now if you're travelling from America, you might be a bit miffed to find out that your regular phone chargers can't be immediately plugged into the wall sockets of your hotel room. As such, it's a prudent choice to carry a power adapter with you when travelling to New Zealand. At the same time, you don't need to sweat too hard if you forget one – if you're staying at a prominent Auckland city hotel such as the Avani Auckland Metropolis Residences, management will most likely be able to supply you with one.


Travel Insurance

Generally speaking, it's always a good idea to get yourself insured when travelling abroad. Once again, New Zealand is a relatively safe country, but it's always to be safe to be sure. A good insurance plan that covers potential travel mishaps will let you traverse through the scenic landscapes of the country without worry.


Waterproof Cases

Many tourists flock to New Zealand to try out a number of extreme water sports like white-water rafting and parasailing. Now, if you're planning to experience these high-octane activities, chances are you'll want to capture the moment every once in a while, too. You can always go with a waterproof camera for this, but most will simply prefer to use their phone to take pictures. So, why pack yourself a waterproof phone case. This will keep your smartphone nice and safe as you whistle across the water having the time of your life.


Travel Backpack

You'll need to figure out what backpack you want to bring with you. You'll most likely be lugging this thing on your back for the majority of your excursions, so choose wisely. Remember that the bag should be large enough to hold a number of essentials like your jacket, water bottle, passport and documents, and your camera.


Insect Repellent

It might not seem obvious at first, but there are plenty of bugs here in New Zealand. In particular, if you're planning to go hiking around the mountains or trek through a national park, be ready to get assaulted by mosquitoes and sand flies. Of course, the solution is simple – pack yourself some bug spray!
