Travel Insurance going to New Zealand 

New Zealand (Capital  Wellington) is popular with British Nationals - about quarter a million travel each year. The country offers excellent health care and low risk of terrorism. Travellers should note that there is no right to sue following a motor accident so it may be advisable for travel insurance policies to be selected with high levels of personal accident cover.

For insurance purposes, New Zealand, like Australia, is often rated slightly lower than the rest of the world area i.e. outside Europe. This is particularly true with independent, long stay, and backpacker travel insurance. backpackers should check that their travel insurance includes light work if they intend to earn during their stay.

Due to the distance from the UK, many people visit New Zealand on extended stays, to see relatives. This means that there is a high demand for travel insurance for the elderly - over 75, 70, 75, 80, 85 - to stay for two or three months, which cover is available on our website through our comparative travel insurance quotation system.
