How do your Experiences with a Twist work?


Want to go on a trip in New Zealand but have no time to plan? What if you don't know where you want to go? What if you want to be surprised?

New Zealand Insight is a Surprise Travel Company that plans trips around New Zealand. All you have to do is fill out a quick survey and tell us your budget. We'll take care of your travel + accommodation arrangements based on your travel personality - all while keeping your destination a surprise.

Planning a trip has never been easier, or more exciting.


STEP 1 Let us know your Travel Personality through our fun pre-trip survey. To plan your Experience with a Twist, we'll need to know:

  • Your budget (covering travel, accommodation + at least 1 activity each day)

  • Travel dates

  • Travel preferences

  • Personal interests + likes

  • Personal information

  • Places you've been to recently, or already plan on visiting in future (we won't send you there!)

STEP 2 One of the best reasons to sign-up for an Experience with a Twist getaway is that you'll be leaving the planning to us. Our Travel Designers will book every aspect of your trip, based on your travel personality, within your selected trip budget. That means that after signing up for a trip and completing your Pre-Trip Survey, you can sit back and relax - we will be busy planning your awesome getaway full of amazing surprises!

STEP 3 A week before departure, you'll receive an email that contains: ​

  • Recommended items to pack (e.g. make sure you bring your togs and tramping boots)

  • Any luggage size restrictions

  • Where to go and when (e.g. Wellington Airport, Friday at 10:30AM!)

  • Details of on-trip support via phone, text message, email and WhatsApp during your Experience with a Twist

STEP 4 On the day, go to the designated location at the given time and send us a text message to reveal the surprise!

You'll be presented with a digital itinerary to your email where you'll receive your own unique link to your trip details, and a print-friendly document you can download. Since you don't have time to do research on your destination, we do it for you! At your fingertips you'll have recommendations for everything from cafés to nightlife to rainy day options. We promise you won't be bored wherever you go.

STEP 5 Follow your itinerary, and enjoy the trip designed especially for you!
