Packing for a road trip can be challenging! To help you, we’ve pulled together information gathered from our years of heading out on the open road to come up with the optimal New Zealand road trip packing list. Check off the items as you get them and pack them in your soft luggage (it's way easier to store soft bags in our storage compartments).
