Travel Agents

Get your skates on! Tourism New Zealand is giving away agent prizes!

Not so long ago, Tourism New Zealand launched one heck of a campaign to get agents selling big with New Zealand, and win a few sneaky prizes for themselves along the way.

And now that very campaign is already half way through – so we’re here with a little PSA to remind you to get a wriggle on if you want to win.

The Tourism New Zealand campaign encourages agents to sell the smokin’ hot destination to independent professionals aged 25-54, in particular Northland or the West Coast for 7+ day holidays. So pretty much every Aussie traveller would be down for this sort of holiday.

By doing so, you have the chance of winning one of three $250 visa gift cards. Agents just need to check out their campaign info page on the Tourism New Zealand Travel website (right here), complete the quiz and then HELLO! You’re in the draw for a sweet little gift card.

It’s probably the easiest thing you’ll do all day, plus selling New Zealand is a piece of cake for Aussies – we love the place.

So if you want to get in with a good chance of winning a delightful $250 gift card (the good ones you can spend anywhere!) then there’s still time! You’ve got until March 23 when the campaign wraps up.

Meanwhile, New Zealand is probably one of the most picturesque places going right now, and with its gorgeous attractions all so closely linked, it makes the ideal road trip destination.

In Northland, there are significant cultural attractions, swimming with dolphins, canoeing down the Waitangi River, and the chance to explore the region’s many walking tracks along the coast and through ancient forests.

And then you’ve got dreamy turquoise waters, breathtaking glaciers, and adrenalin-filled water activities on the West Coast, not to mention UNESCO Heritage sites, and incredible natural beauty everywhere you look – like the Oparara Arches and the Punakaiki Pancake Rocks.

We could actually go on forever. But we won’t.

All we’re saying is take a little squiz at the Tourism New Zealand campaign info page, get the lowdown on when things go on sale, why your clients should visit (or you – let’s not let clients have all the fun!) and fast-track your way to super selling these two spectacular regions.

Then fill in that simple little quiz and go brag to your colleagues about how smart you are and how you’re (hopefully) going to win that gift card.

Isn’t that what it’s all about, after all?

Check out the website here and get moving! The Tourism New Zealand campaign ends on March 23.
