How do I book my New Zealand holiday?

Lake Pukaki Cycling



Take your time, search through our tours and choose one that suits you best. Each tour itinerary page has a link to an enquiry form. If you are interested in that tour, complete the form. Your enquiry will be assigned to one of our tour specialists who will be in charge of your enquiry. You will be notified of who this is, and their details so you can contact them directly!


We will provide you with a personalised quote by email (normally within 12 hours). If there are any further questions you have at this stage your personal tour consultant is there to help answer your queries.

If you decide to proceed we will send you a link to our secure form where you can pay your deposit online (by Visa or MasterCard). The deposit is normally around NZ $250pp but varies according to tour type.


We will then send you an invoice for the balance of the tour when your tour has been booked & confirmed. The tour balance is due at least 45 days prior to the commencement of the tour*.

We recommend that you choose one of the following two methods to pay the balance of your tour. These are also detailed on the invoice. You can either pay online using your credit card (Relaxing Journeys do not charge credit card fees!), or you can pay directly into our company account via Electronic Funds Transfer. All currency conversions (if applicable) are carried out automatically by your credit card company or bank.

Your tour documents, tour vouchers, travel bag and/or travel wallet and all tour documents will be either:

  • Handed to you by the representative who meets you at the airport.
  • Handed to you by your coach captain on arrival at your tour accommodation.
  • Delivered to the hotel or address you are staying at prior to your tour.

Depending on the tour type chosen. We also provide you with a tour itinerary and arrival instructions by email, once we have all your flight information and personal details.
