With the launch of the bike-drive itineraries in partnership with Avis, we hope to inspire more people to step out of their comfort-zone and to kick-start their own adventure. By combining both cycling and driving, travellers will be able to discover and experience a different side of New Zealand,– Sheryl Lim, founder of Travel Wander

SINGAPORE – Car rental operator Avis has partnered with Singapore-based Travel Wander, a licensed travel agency that specialises in active holidays, to inspire more people to explore adventurous bike-drive itineraries offered in New Zealand.

Nga Haerenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail, covers  2,500 kilometres of New Zealand’s countryside located in both North and South islands and has more than 20 biking routes known as ‘Great Rides’ for bikers of every age and ability.

Angeline Tang, regional director - leisure travel & partnerships, Asia, Avis Budget Group said, “With trips being self-guided, our partnership with Travel Wander will provide travellers greater convenience and allows them the freedom to get from one ‘Great Ride’ to another in a car of their preference.”

Last year, two additional eco-friendly hybrid models were introduced to the New Zealand fleet which has  the largest fleet of hybrid rental vehicles available in the country.

“With the launch of the bike-drive itineraries in partnership with Avis, we hope to inspire more people to step out of their comfort-zone and to kick-start their own adventure. By combining both cycling and driving, travellers will be able to discover and experience a different side of New Zealand,” added Sheryl Lim, founder of Travel Wander.

Avis New Zealand operates in almost 40 locations across the North and South Islands. Bicycle Roof Racks are also available for rental from Auckland Airport and Christchurch Airport for travellers who are bringing their own bicycles for the Great Rides.
