Office Hours

Our normal business hours are Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 5.30 pm (New Zealand time).

One Stop Shop

We understand with so many different options available to consider when planning your holiday, the choice can be daunting as well as time consuming.  Allow us to take the hassle out of the planning process and provide you with a ‘one stop shop’, which is where our team of travel professionals come in.

Your Own Personal Travel Consultant

Nothing can take the place of your very own personal travel consultant.  When you enquire about one of our travel products, one of our team of travel experts will be assigned to you.  They’ll assist you with planning and booking of your arrangements as well as being available while you’re travelling.  With their first hand knowledge and experience of New Zealand they can help you get the most of your time here in New Zealand.

Prompt Service

We pride ourselves on providing prompt & efficient service.  There’s nothing more frustrating than filling in an enquiry form, only to not receive a response for days at a time, or not at all!  If you take the time to contact us we will get back to you as quickly as possible – usually within the same business day.

Unique Itineraries

All of the self drive & seat in coach packages on our website are unique to Pan Pacific, having been meticulously researched and designed by our team of travel planners.  We also update the itineraries regularly, taking into account feedback from our travel consultants after visiting destinations first hand as well as comments received from past clients. When you book one of these packages with us, we reserve your accommodation, activity and transport directly with the operators.

Fully Flexible

Virtually all our packages are fully flexible, from the date you travel to the accommodation you stay at, the activities and sightseeing you experience to your mode of transport.  And we can match your interests, budget and time frame to find that perfect balance just for you – all the while backed by our specialist advice.  You can also mix it up – if you like elements of different packages, we’d be happy to combine these and provide you with a free tailor-made proposal.

On The Ground Support

In case of an emergency…When you book your Costsaver package, all you have to do is make one phone call.  Being in the same time zone as the country you are travelling we can talk to suppliers immediately and work quickly to resolve any ‘glitches’ in the unlikely event that this should occur.  24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
