Self-drive holidays

One of the best ways to explore Australia and New Zealand is by car. Choose your vehicle and pack a map before discovering the country at your own pace - there is nothing more exciting than a self-drive journey.

Driving in Australia and New Zealand has never been easier, with good roads and clear signposts, combined with driving on the left-hand side - same as in the UK. Take your time as you meander though diverse landscapes of dramatic mountain ranges and rugged coastlines, taking advantage of the endless photo opportunities. Need some inspiration? Here's a selection of our favourite Australia road trips.

We have a range of organised self-drives, from four days to 22 days, and cover a variety of destinations to suit your time and travel desires. To make things even easier, we can arrange your accommodation needs, meaning you can relax behind the wheel knowing your room is ready when you arrive.

See below for a range of our self-drives, or visit our Avis Australia, Avis New Zealand, or Apollo Motorhome pages for more holiday ideas with a range of vehicles available.
