• New Zealand receives many sunny days. Those days receive more UV rays than you might expect because New Zealand is directly below a hole in the ozone layer. Bring sun screen, sunglasses and consider the items you put in the windows of your new home to avoid the UV rays discolouring them.
• An SUV can be very useful, even though traffic is not heavy outside of Auckland, as public transit is limited and 2 lane roads outnumber highways.
• Health care is government subsidized however dental is not. Get dental work done before leaving home and arranging dental insurance coverage.
