While you're in New Zealand

To help you book

what language do they speak in New Zealand?

New Zealanders speak English (with a ‘kiwi’ accent). If English is not your first language, we’re a friendly country and most people will be patient communicating with you. You will need some basics to get around – like understanding times and prices, and being able to ask for help if you need it. 

If you’re not confident making bookings in English, then consider joining a tour group, or booking your trip as a package in your home country. If you’re planning to drive, check with your rental vehicle company to ensure instructions and GPS navigational equipment are offered in your native language.

Apart from English, New Zealand has two other official languages: Māori and New Zealand sign language.
