Innovative tourism company, Road GURU, has partnered with award winning GO Rentals to provide agents with a seamless, new, professional Vehicle + Driver Guide service in one easy booking.

Agents tailor the itinerary for their clients and make the bookings.  On tour, the guide ensures the smooth running of the itinerary and creates an atmosphere where the clients can relax and enjoy quality time with their family and friends.

“At home these visitors often lead high-pressured lives, working long hours with only limited family time.  They appreciate our guides taking care of all the finer details so they don’t have to worry,” comments Road GURU’s Mitchell McLaughlin.  Without this service, clients can feel anxious about driving in New Zealand, where to go, how long it will take them and what to do if there is a weather event. It means they can focus on enjoying their time in New Zealand with the family and friends.

Of the 16 vehicle categories in the GO Rentals fleet, both the 12 Seater Toyota Hiace Van and the 5 Seater Toyota Highlander GXL 4×4 are fully compliant with New Zealand Transport regulations. Both models include additional features for passenger comfort and relaxation and are recommended by Road GURU for their Passenger Service Vehicle requirements.

James Dalglish, Managing Director of GO Rentals, says “The relationship with professional Driver Guides from Road GURU is a perfect complement to our Passenger Service Vehicle fleet, meeting a growing demand for Driver Guided touring.” He adds, “It provides the worldwide trade with a simple answer to booking this lucrative market sector at competitive nett rates.”

“For agents we’ve taken the hassle out of making two bookings; one for the driver guide and another for the vehicle. We’ve ensured all the legalities are taken care of, and, importantly add value by ensuring our guides are knowledgeable and professional”, adds Mitchell McLaughlin, Director of Road GURU.

Nett pricing includes vehicle hire with fully inclusive insurance, driver/guide accommodation and food allowance and all vehicle related fees and fuel.  All guides are personally vetted by Road GURU to ensure they have the relevant experiences, knowledge of New Zealand and general skills. In addition, they undergo New Zealand Police checks and carry the correct transport licenses and endorsements. Guide languages include English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Cantonese, Mandarin and Vietnamese.

Bookings can be made via either GO Rentals Agents Portal or Road GURU’s website.  Alternatively, emails can be sent to Road GURU for direct assistance.

Both companies will be showcasing this service to agents at TRENZ next week in Rotorua.
