Why do we love this

"We love WE Travel as they provide with all the support you need to begin your NZ Working Holiday adventure, from people who have experienced it themselves!"


It’s got what you need to get you on your feet in New Zealand. For a quick, stress-free start to your life in New Zealand, the Classic Kiwi offers all the basics like a New Zealand sim and NZ bank account. A simple and affordable program with a combination of services to get you settled and ready to start living your new adventure.


You are a WE Traveller from the day you sign up, to the day you leave New Zealand. It is an unlimited membership to us and to our community.


The two main hot spots to arrive into New Zealand are Christchurch and Auckland. This program can be for both of these cities, and it can be used if you are heading elsewhere in New Zealand.


After you've made the decision to join our program, you will be contacted by WE Travel New Zealand no more than 48 hours after your purchase with Backpacker Deals with your log in details for the member's area.

Once you have joined a program, you will receive your log in details to fill in your application form. Once you have completed the application form, we will send further details including your Pre - Flight Check List.

 YES! Absolutely, we have connections all across New Zealand, so everything still applies. If you choose not to come to Christchurch, you will have your NZ Life session over Skype.

If you have an airport transfer with us, we'll welcome you off the plane! If you don't, you'll have your bank appointment and NZ Life session booked in, so your first week is already planned for you. We're here to help at any time pre or post arrival, so feel free to get in touch.
