Yes, you can drive on almost any road in New Zealand. We do recommend taking our Stress-Free Insurance when driving a lot on gravel roads or unsealed roads as then any damages caused by these rough roads is covered.

There are only 3 roads in New Zealand you are not allowed to drive, these are the 3 restricted roads:

  • Skippers Canyon Road near Queenstown

  • Ball Hutt Road near Mt Cook

  • 90 Mile Beach in Northland

Also, you must not - unless authorised by us - drive or take the campervan on any road, which is temporarily/permanently closed or restricted, or on beaches through streams, dams, rivers and floodwaters.
