  • Snack food or lunch.
  • Personal medication

Personal Locator Beacons

We also have personal locator beacons (PLB) for hire. You’ll put one of these into your bag hoping that the next time you see it is when you return it to us. These devices will seriously minimise the time it takes to get the medical folk who can give you the happy stuff and they may even save your life.

A lot of New Zealand’s trails are remote with no cell phone coverage and so without one it could take many hours to get you help if you have an accident. We really recommend them and they are available for hire at $25 per day.

The Hirer authorises Adventure Shuttles or its affiliates to debit the Hirer's credit card for the monies still owing
in respect of the hire, at the end of the hire period, should the rental equipment be returned late.

The hirer shall incur any expenses, disbursements and legal costs incurred by Adventure Shuttles in the collection of any monies owing.
