Keep yourself safe in New Zealand

New Zealand is well known for its friendly people and relaxed travelling environment. However, like all other destinations it remains important to use common sense and to be mindful of both personal safety and keeping your possessions safe.

Rather than camping in an isolated area, we recommend that you stay at a holiday park, maui Winery Haven or Department of Conservation (DOC) campground. It's also a good idea to have a mobile phone on you at all times. In the case of an emergency, the number you should call in New Zealand is 111.

If you are going on one of NZ’s great adventures, (even if it's bush walking), it's worth checking out this useful website​ AdventureSmart.

New Zealand is a relatively safe travel destination but we are not crime free. It is important you take the same precautions to look after yourself and your possessions as you would at home.

The emergency number for fire, ambulance and police is 111. Calls are free.

Remember these key things:

  • Avoid unlit areas and don't walk alone late at night.
  • Don’t carry lots of cash, valuables or expensive jewellery with you.
  • Always lock your vehicle and keep windows secure.
  • Don’t leave valuables, maps, luggage, GPS devices or visitor brochures visible in your parked motorhome, especially at scenic spots or trail heads.
  • Don’t leave bags, backpacks, wallets, mobile phones or cameras unattended in public places, especially at airports, railway stations or ferry terminals.
  • Park your motorhome overnight in a holiday park, Department of Conservation campground or other specially designated area. If in doubt, ask at the nearest i-SITE (official visitor information office).
  • Report lost or stolen possessions as soon as possible to the nearest police station.
