Marketing & Operations Manager
"A brief and well written newsletter of interesting tourism news comes with the monthly statistics that are clear and easy to
understand with Ad Impressions, Listing Views and Clicks, perfect! The customer service is excellent, happy to help above and beyond
and very quick to resolve any temporary listings issues. I would throughly recommend working with the team at NZ.com."
Hooters Vintage & Classic Vehicle Hire
"We have a listing for our company on your website. However, we are in the process of selling our boat,
and consequently will be shutting down our charter business in the upcoming few months.
We have very much felt that the relatively small amount that you charge has been by far the
most cost effective advertising dollars we have spent, and will be happy to recommend you to any other tourism operators we know in the area."
