Interactive Map and Charging Stations 


One of the concerns drivers often have about using an EV for a road trip is to be sure there are sufficient places to charge along the route. This eGuide addresses that concern by providing an interactive Google Map, which will show drivers exactly where and when they can charge. ChargeNet Fast Chargers also allows for drivers to charge in under 20 minutes!

We have partnered with Thrifty to give you a discount on their wonderful Hyundai IONIQ EV, which has a 200 km range


Discounts at sustainable tourism providers


The eGuide also provides discount codes, which will save GOOD Travellers up to $150 when booking at the accommodation and activity partners. These businesses are leading the way in sustainable tourism.


Travelling New Zealand in a GOOD way


“The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated to the tourism industry that we have to work together. The resilience of our industry relies on it. Our goal with the Go Electric Eco Tour is to strengthen collaboration amongst like-minded tourism SMEs as well as to inspire Kiwis to explore our own backyard and learn from the places we visit. Ultimately, we want to show that doing GOOD, having fun and experiencing some luxury are not mutually exclusive, and we want to create an experience that is GOOD for Kiwi tourists, businesses, communities, and our environment.” ~ says Josie Major, GOOD Travel’s New Zealand Programmes Manager.

By downloading and using the New Zealand Go Electric Eco Tour eGuide, travellers will not only feel GOOD supporting the amazing accommodation and activity partners, but will also avoid 318 kg in carbon emissions by travelling in an electric vehicle!
