Great Ocean Road, near Melbourne, Australia
Are you a person who enjoys the freedom of traveling independently and having the opportunity to enjoy your surroundings at your own pace? Well if so, do you have a few weeks to spare? Why not check out Australia & New Zealand? These two fascinating countries possess an incredibly varied landscape: Reefs to rainforests, deserts to snowy mountains and some of the strangest animals you can see, outside of the zoo, in their natural environment. We have designed a travel package that allows you, at your leisure, to visit as many of these sites as you wish, by means of a pre-arranged rental car and pre-selected accommodations. While we are in charge of the details, you are in charge of the fun. Enjoy two of the safest countries in the world, where it is easy to get around on your own, and here the friendly natives even speak English and call each other ‘mates’!
Well, what are you waiting for?

Additional 3 nights' accommodations at a Best Western hotel of your choice anywhere else in Australia.
3-Day car rental in Australia, with unlimited mileage (Sydney to Melbourne or Gold Coast / Brisbane)

On your own with Hotel Vouchers and a Rental Car
Nothing could be as fun and easy as an independent fly-drive vacation in Australia and New Zealand.
Your first three nights' accommodations in Australia are pre-booked by us, allowing you to explore either Sydney or Melbourne at your leisure. Pick up your rental car after that and you are free to explore the countryside after that - you could even drive between Sydney and Melbourne if you like, thus checking out both cities! Your travel documents will include hotel vouchers and a directory. Each voucher is good for one night's accommodation at select Best Western motels (depending on the category booked by you - either Gold or Silver). All hotel taxes are included.
In New Zealand, you pick up your rental car upon arrival and drop it off before you leave. Accommodations are again flexible, using a similar hotel voucher system.
You can plan your itinerary and pre-book your accommodations before leaving the US, or you can use the local toll free numbers in Australia & New Zealand to make reservations as you go along. You are at complete liberty to choose where you stay - spend each night in a different place or stay at the same hotel for several nights. It is important to remember that while a voucher is valid for overnight accommodation, it does not automatically guarantee the availability of a room in the hotel of your choice - hence we always recommend advance reservations.
