Re: Rental references.

We asked our agent about this when we were looking. Her reply was "you got a Visa right? If Immigration are happy to let you in, that's reference enough for me"

I wouldn't worry about it too much....

You chose right. We are bringing our car (stuff arrives in a week, you have no idea how exciting this is). It's only a couple of years old, so worth it.

We booked with Emirates for this exact reason. Qantas do a migrant fare but only increase your luggage to 40kg. Emirates standard luggage allowance is 30kg but will increase this to 50kg if young...

Re: April 2013 Arrivals and Departures

Re: Mums and Dads - are UK baby car seats compatible with NZ cars?

If as everyone says, standards are same as UK then ALL cars from 2007 onwards will have Isofix as standard. Many car companies introduced them before then though. Fingers crossed you find something x
