“James was very helpful when renewing my policy. As I am 81 it is good to be able to get cover for my different medical conditions. My daughter lives in New Zealand and it is comforting to know that I have good cover when travelling such a distance with cover for up to 45 days. I have recommended AllClear to a number of my friends.”

Tips When Visiting New Zealand
You don’t need a visa to visit New Zealand if you are a British passport holder and visiting for less than 6 months. You will, however, need an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) and pay the International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL) before you travel.
Visit the New Zealand Immigration website for more information or to download the app.
Healthcare in New Zealand:
New Zealand has very high-quality healthcare services. Under a reciprocal health agreement, UK nationals who are on a short-term visit to New Zealand are eligible for free emergency healthcare, which includes air or road ambulance transportation. You’ll be asked to show your UK passport.
The Accident Compensation Corporation also provides cover for all medical costs relating to injuries caused by accidents while in the country. But it doesn’t cover injuries sustained while you’re travelling to or from New Zealand or around the islands if you’re on a cruise.
The emergency number for fire, police or an ambulance is 111.
English and Maori are the official languages of New Zealand, but nearly every New Zealander speaks English.
The currency is the New Zealand Dollar (NZD).
Local laws and Customs:
New Zealand has stringent regulations on bringing food into the country. Food such as meat products, honey, fruit and dairy are barred from imports and rule-breakers may face fines or prosecution.
