Tourism is a cornerstone service of the AA, as it is a vital sector to the growth and appeal of this unique country. For almost a century the AA has played a role in promoting access to domestic tourism. Today, we print more than 2.5 million maps, and region-based, special-interest and touring guides.
The 2021/2022 portfolio of AA Traveller publications includes magazine-style guides, using the Must Do’s brand, and features a wide range of activities, attractions, accommodation options, and things to do throughout New Zealand.
Annually, AA Traveller also publishes the New Zealand Cycle Trail Guide. Published for the first time in 2015, the guide features the Great Rides, Heartland Rides, route maps, plus valuable information on places to stay, things to see and do, safety tips, and other useful information to make your cycling experience rewarding and enjoyable.
You can download an e-version of the latest guide here.
All of AA Traveller’s guides are well received, especially with the increased demand from New Zealanders who, in the post Covid 19 environment, seek quality information on things to see and do throughout the country. AA’s online presence in tourism has increased significantly with all publications now available in digital format. Rich, practical and inspiring content covering every corner of New Zealand now features on aatraveller.co.nz, with regional highlights, urban insights, road trip itineraries, local tips, walking tracks and of course, the very comprehensive Ngā Haerenga New Zealand Cycle Trails portfolio.
Not only is it convenient for travellers to have access to quality travel editorial online, it’s our business to showcase the best of New Zealand operators to the widest possible market. As you would expect, visitors to our website are encouraged to explore, and can then enjoy hassle-free booking of accommodation, transport, attractions, transfers and tour operators.
