The rugged, natural and physical beauty of New Zealand attracts hundreds of thousands of people to visit and explore this country. The forces that created our land are still at work and weather events, natural disasters and failure of infrastructure can at times create conditions that challenge a visitor’s experience.

TravelsafeNZ is an APP (APPlication that can run on the Internet, on your computer, on your phone or other electronic device), providing advance warning of problems, wherever they might be in the country and links the traveller with local issues and local arrangements.

TravelsafeNZ pulls together information on local conditions to help travellers avoid problems that would disrupt their journey. Travellers can also take an active role by reporting on accidents or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a ‘heads-up’. If travellers are unfortunately caught up in an event TravelsafeNZ provides the link between you and the local services sorting out the problem to get you back on your journey quicker. We also provide quick links to emergency help if needed.
