What to Pack

What you pack in your luggage really depends on the time of the year you are coming over and the nature of the trip. On a business trip, you’ll need a light or warm suit depending on the weather. On vacation, carry your informal and casual wear along, smart casuals if you want to wine and dine at some good places. Formal wear is rare but you may need to it in a really formal nightclub or restaurant. Pack in a light jacket or sweater or a light waterproof jacket or coat so as to be prepared for NZ’s unpredictable weather. Travellers coming in winter will need their warm clothes, as temperatures can be as low as 5 to 10 degrees Celsius. Other holiday essentials include hats, sunscreen lotions/creams and medication (if you’ve been prescribed any) and spare prescription glasses. A good pair of walking boots is an absolute must, especially if you plan to do any walking tours.
