Travel insurance: New Zealand is the place to be

Thursday, 12 October 2006

If awards are anything to go by then New Zealand is one of the most popular destinations in the world.

British newspapers hailed it as the best long-haul destination at the Guardian Unlimited Travel Awards, held in Cape Town last weekend.

George Hickton, chief executive of Tourism New Zealand, said: "With the mass of media in the US and UK, we are continually challenged with how to keep up our profile - recognition such as this is something we just couldn't pay for."

For those newly-marrieds who aren't fazed by jet lag and are prepared for a long journey, then the far-flung holiday spot has just scooped top dream honeymoon setting, by viewers of USA Today.

If you have your cheap travel insurance at the ready but are looking for a shorter trip, then the Guardian also hailed Sweden as the best European country and Edinburgh as top UK city.
