Stewart Island packages, rooms reserved for agents

Inspired New Zealand Tours is expecting strong demand for Stewart Island to continue this summer and has just released four packages of various durations to the destination.

Director John Gregory says the company has also taken a number of steps to ensure its trade partners can take advantage of the island’s popularity.

‘We know finding accommodation on Stewart Island was a challenge due to high demand from the domestic market,’ says Gregory. ‘This year we have secured allotments at our preferred accommodation partner Bay Motel for our packages throughout the summer for FITs and we will reserve these rooms specifically for travel agent bookings.’

Bay Motel is five minutes’ walk from the local Four Square supermarket and offers views of the harbour or surrounding native bush.

Gregory says Inspired is also holding a number of allotments for group bookings and would suggest any agents looking to operate their own tours to contact the company for group tour options to Stewart Island and the wider Southland and Fiordland regions.

‘We have just released four packages for the summer, valid through to May next year. Demand for Stewart Island remains exceptional and our packages enable agents to book a commissionable holiday for their clients with many of the key activities on the island included.

‘It’s an easy sale and we encourage all agents to promote Stewart Island to their databases.’
