Creating unique New Zealand journeys


About Us

Imagine NZ Travel was established by Nienke Jansen, who has over 20 years experience in the travel industry. She gained a strong grounding, working in travel agencies and travel wholesalers in her homeland The Netherlands. In 2006, together with husband Arno Jansen, she moved to the country they both fell in love with, New Zealand. Nienke worked for about 8 years for New Zealand inbound companies, before deciding to establish Imagine NZ Travel.

At Imagine NZ Travel Nienke is doing what she loves most - creating unique holidays in the destination she loves. When planning a journey to New Zealand you can rely on her extensive destination and product knowledge, creativity and attention to detail.

Imagine NZ Travel is a complete destination management company offering services in New Zealand for individuals (self-drive, seat-in-coach, motorhome, or chauffeur driven), groups (ad hoc and series), special interest tours, shore excursions for cruise ships and incentives.

If you are looking for a destination management company in Australia, Imagine NZ Travel works closely with The Travel Insiders in Brisbane. They will ensure each of your clients will have a fantastic holiday and like us, they pride themselves on in-depth local knowledge, a passion for their destination and attention to detail.


With Imagine NZ Travel, where you stay is very much part of the experience. We offer a wide range of unique accommodation, boutique hotels and luxury lodges. We regularly inspect the accommodation, and know many of the owners, hosts and managers personally. Tree houses, vineyard cottages, historic estates, eco-lodges, choices are endless!

Unique Experiences

The majority of our sightseeing tours we offer are small and personalised tours. The guides we work with are the best available and offer a real insight in their region. New Zealand is jam-packed with things to do. Based on a detailed understanding of your client’s interests, we can offer experiences during the day, which focus on those interests.


None of the itineraries or programmes we offer are the same. They are all uniquely designed, depending of your client’s interests and budget. Once we develop an understanding of what is important for your client, what accommodation style they are looking for and what pace suits them, we can develop an itinerary with you that fits all requirements.

Reassurance for your clients

Imagine NZ Travel is on hand 24/7 to provide support to visitors travelling New Zealand should they need assistance. We contact your clients after they arrived in New Zealand to check if they need anything and make sure their holiday runs smoothly. Nothing is too much trouble no matter what day of the week or time of the day!

Comprehensive travel documents

Your clients will receive comprehensive Travel Documentation containing day-by-day details of the trip. As well as the detailed itinerary you will also find all sorts of additional information, from restaurant recommendations to driving instructions.

Responsible travel and conservation

At Imagine NZ Travel we are passionate about New Zealand, therefore it is a natural progression that we help protect our country. The Department of Conservation (DOC) protects New Zealand’s natural and historic heritage. DOC manages a vast range of conservation programmes throughout New Zealand. Much of their work is done in partnership with communities and businesses. Imagine NZ Travel has chosen to support The Kiwi Trust, operating under the name of Kiwis for Kiwi. The trust aims to protect Kiwi and their natural habitat and ensures the species flourish for generations to come.
