To summarise my recommended road trip around the South Island of New Zealand I’ve mapped the whole itinerary into Google Maps complete with directions and driving times. I’ve also integrated all of the content from each part of this blog series so, when you click on each leg of the road trip, my full description of what to do and what to look out for will appear (it’s easier to use if you click on the link to view a larger version of the map).

If you want to read up on any of the previous blog posts then the full list is below:

- Awesome road trips – South Island, New Zealand – Part 3
- Awesome road trips – South Island, New Zealand – Part 4

The South Island of New Zealand is a stunning place and there are so many amazing places that I just could not squeeze into what is an already ambitious itinerary. However, if you do have extra time in New Zealand, then this is what I’d recommend:
- Abel Tasman
- Doubtful Sound
- The Catlins
- Stewart Island

Have a great trip!!

Why we love to blog

At Avis, we really do try harder. We pioneered blogging in the car rental world and we aim to make our blog much more than just an information source. You can use our blog to ask questions or tell us what’s important to you when you hire a car. We try harder because we care what you think, so we really do value your feedback.

New to car rentals? Our blog gives you tips and advice on getting the most out of your Avis car hire experience. You can find information about booking and hiring your car, safety tips, and eco driving. We also provide driving advice and the latest news about our fleet.

We understand that hiring a car is just one part of your trip, so our blog covers other aspects of holiday and business travel too. Whether you want to know more about business travel hire conditions, access to location and city guides or ideas for families travelling with children, it’s all here.

But that’s just a taster – find out more about the Avis blog.
