Here at Planit NZ, we highly recommend you take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy before setting off on a trip to New Zealand.
When heading out on any adventure abroad, buying travel insurance should be a part of your pre-trip planning. You'll be buying much needed peace of mind that if something should go wrong while on your adventure in New Zealand, you're covered. Travel insurance provides a wealth of cover while traveling outside of your home country - medical care whilst abroad as well as protection in the case of:
Lost or stolen luggage / personal belongings
Emergency dental treatment
Emergency evacuation back to your country of residence
At Planit NZ, we have two main suggestions when considering travel insurance:First, we highly recommend World Nomads. Why? They offer great value travel insurance that is flexible, comprehensive and most importantly for your visit in New Zealand - they cover a wide range of adventure activities. Second, regardless of who you book your travel insurance with, be sure to read the policy fine print carefully. We can guarantee it won't be the most exciting piece of reading you'll do before your adventure in New Zealand, but it's hugely important. Read the fine print and hone in on the exclusions.

World Nomads' policies are designed with backpackers and independent travelers in mind. Their polices are comprehensive and the coverage they offer is good value for the price you pay. Equally important, you can easily buy their insurance online, extend your policy (because we know you'll love New Zealand) and heavens forbid if something goes wrong, you can even make a claim online.
