About Us

Haere mai and welcome to New Zealand Travel Tips – we’re pleased you stopped by!

What started as a humble Facebook group has grown into one of the most engaged New Zealand-based online travel communities and brands.

We’re incredibly proud of what the NZTT community has become.

It is an engaging, positive space where our members are empowered to share and inspire. No question is silly and nothing is too much bother. We have the most incredible members that make our space so fantastic!

In 60 days we’ll be leaving for NZ. I am so excited and feel 💯 more prepared because of this group and Sarah Chant. Off to plan some more!

Whilst our group is the best place to get travel inspiration, our website is the best place to access exclusive member-only discounts and tried-and-tested travel tips.

Together, we suggest you use the two resources to plan your local adventures.

Sarah Chant, I can say with full certainty that our trip would not have been as great without your advice & that of this group! Thank you so much 😊👏👍

Coming from the UK we found it so difficult to find a UK tour operator that really knew their stuff on NZ….fortunately I stumbled across this group, Sarah, the community, the guides ..and the discounts! Without it I’m not sure this trip would have actually got underway… or if it had it would have been a very different trip.

There is such a need for this resource/information especially if your coming from the UK.. I’d imagine similar all over Europe.

Friends back home are in awe of the trip that we are having.. given we put it together ourselves …with A LOT of help from NZTT.

We’ve told so many people about this group.. and I’m even more amazed that when other travellers happen to be chatting to us and ask if we know ‘ how to’.. we can actually help out with advice and tell them about this group.

We were parked up next to a NZ family the other day and they asked where are you from? What have you seen ? They were blown away …”you’ve seen more of the country than we have! We better join that group” was the reply 😂😂😂

Sarah Chant

Sarah formed New Zealand Travel Tips at the start of 2020. Always keen for an adventure and with a camera in hand, she’s excitedly making the most of travelling in Aotearoa before the borders open. At home, you’ll find her on the computer or hanging with her cats and her husband, Nathan.

You, and this group, have made my time here in NZ so much better. I’ve already told so many people about it. 💗

Carolyn Miller, NZTT member.

The NZ Travel Tips community is supported by a wonderful team of travel bloggers, all of which volunteer their time to ensure our members get the very best travel advice.

We also have a team of writers and, from time to time, welcome guest authors to provide you with a range of travel tips on this website.

Should you wish to make a contribution to our site, we would love to discuss a guest post with you.

Thanks for creating this great website, Sarah. Even though my hubby and I have been to NZ 8 times since 2016, I have found the tips and suggestions from this group very helpful.
