How to book

When you’re ready to book your Classic New Zealand Wine Trail journey, you’ve got a lot of options.

Book from overseas

If you’re coming from overseas, check in with your travel agent for Classic New Zealand Wine Trail travel packages. Alternatively, book your flights and a rental car, grab a map and book as you go.

Book a package

Below are some travel companies that offer great packages to explore the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail. The packages vary as to their inclusions, so read carefully over a glass of wine.

Book as you go

If you’re making your own travel arrangements and are in already in New Zealand, you will find the i-SITE Visitor Centres the perfect place to start planning and book. i-SITE is New Zealand’s official network of visitor centres that provide free, friendly and objective information on local attractions, transport and accommodation for their region and the rest of the country. Professionally trained staff can answer questions and book all your Wine Trail wishes.

You can also check out a range of Wine Trail accommodation and book directly as you please. You can book as you’re on the Wine Trail, but keep in mind New Zealand’s summer months of November to February are busy and pre-booking accommodation is highly recommended.

Book in advance for peak seasons

Booking accommodation and activities in advance for the summer months of November to February is highly recommended. 

October - April are also New Zealand's cruise season and as Napier in the Hawke’s Bay, Wellington and Picton in Marlborough are ports, tours often book out when ships are in each town.
