If you’re in Auckland and want to experience some of the wild West Coast, it’s a stunner of a drive down to Raglan.

“Whether you’re looking for world-class surf, stunning scenery, beautiful beaches, inspiring arts or simply a good old cup of coffee, laidback Raglan offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.”

The much respected AA Traveller has a great article on a self-drive Raglan weekend – and this will of course, be even better with your great value Dollar car rental.
