Christchurch is the gateway to the natural wonders of the South Island, including Lake Tekapo, Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, and Wanaka. Here are some of our top tips for exploring Christchurch and New Zealand:
1. Christchurch’s grid layout means you can get to most places in no more than 20 minutes, but traffic can be dense, so be sure to take your time and make the most of the city’s abundance of parking stations and car lots.
2. Be aware of Christchurch’s peak hour traffic periods and plan accordingly. These are typically on weekdays between 6:30am and 8:30am, and from 4:30pm to 5:30pm.
3. If you’re visiting from overseas, remember that you are required to drive on the left-hand side of the road in New Zealand.
4. The speed limit in built-up areas of the city is 50km/h, while most highways default at 100km/h. Always drive to the signposted speed limit and conditions of the road.
5. Make sure to fill up the tank prior to returning your vehicle; this will prevent additional refuelling fees from your car rental provider.
