Planning a trip to New Zealand, need some recommendations

Hey, I’m planning my trip to New Zealand, going to stay there for about a month. Packed almost everything, but still left some topics to discuss. Firstly, I just can’t live without Hbo tv shows, and as much as I know, I won’t be able to watch it there due to geo restrictions. Maybe anyone has any tips on how to bypass it? Heard that vpns such as NordVPN does similar job. I’m not a tech person, so not sure if I’m right. Secondly, any great car rental tips? Going to move around a lot, so would be nice to hear some real recommendations. Thanks a lot in advance!

Yup, a VPN can help you break through geo restrictions. Google around for stories about people being banned for using a VPN just to be safe. Likely HBO doesn't care enough that they'll actively scan for VPN usage, but you never know. Regional content licensing is a dirty business, HBO will have to uphold some laws surrounding it.

Are you going to be staying in one place or are you going to tour around both islands?

I think I rented a car from Hertz while in New Zealand awhile back. It was a small car that did pretty well apart from struggling up some of the more mountainous terrain.

If you have multiple passengers and lots of luggage, consider renting something with more oomph.

From what I heard, country with no predator (excluding humans) and no venomous snakes... on my wish list of places to visit (or move to ).
