Our partners

During lockdown, Nisha Duncan from Eco Villa was reminiscing about an incredible road trip she’d done with her family. The intention of their trip had been to meet like-minded eco businesses in the South Island and they were so inspired by all the amazing accommodations and tours they had come across. Nisha wanted to share what she had experienced with others and also find a way to support these businesses who, like Eco Villa, had invested so much into developing a sustainable business. Nisha reached out to GOOD Travel, and the vision for the Go Electric Eco Tour was born.

Everything about this venture is collaborative. Our goal is to support our accommodation and tour partners through increased direct bookings. We also hope to inspire travellers to try out an electric vehicle and become more aware about what it means to be a GOOD traveller. GOOD Travel and EcoVilla do not benefit in any way from the recommendations we make in the guide. Rather, all recommended accommodations, tour operators and restaurants have been selected because they share our vision for a more sustainable tourism industry.
