Welcome to Roady

The Roady journey all started back in 2010 when Roscoe called up his childhood friend Cameron inviting him to his country of birth – South Africa – for an incredible Football World Cup road trip.

The itinerary was a whirlwind 30 day trip which included 1 run-down Toyota Corolla Hatchback, 3 tickets to World Cup matches, accommodation with Roscoe’s contacts and family at several South African destinations, and an endless supply of biltong and vuvuzelas.

At the fresh age of 18, we learnt a lot about travel and how to pull off a successful road trip in a foreign land.

The next several years saw us attend different universities, travel independently to Europe and South America, and start our careers as a teacher in Roscoe’s case and a marketer in Cameron’s. But the memory of South Africa was still plugging away in our collective subconscious.

Then in November of 2016, the stars started to align. One lonesome night Cameron started to brainstorm with the “Roady” concept. It all made sense – Kiwi’s love nothing more than a good road trip and New Zealand is tailor-made for this type of travel. The opportunity was there for the taking.

A few phone calls and lazy brunches later, Roscoe was all in. We became partners in the business and the magic that we created in South Africa would soon be shared with the tourism industry in New Zealand.

For us, Roady’s have always been an important part of being a New Zealander – it’s what we’ve grown up with and something we practice regularly. Our country is tailor made for road trips, as you are never far from the next town and adventure. Each new destination offers a unique experience and some vastly different landscapes that will leave you speechless.

We believe too many of our visitors are missing out on the authentic Kiwi experience by being stuck on a bus or flying between destinations. There is so much to see and discover when cruising on the open road!

It’s the freedom of a New Zealand Road trip that is so appealing – taking it day by day and doing as you please. Stumbling upon the country’s best kept secrets, that you only knew existed because you took the wrong turn.

Travelling with the windows down and the music blaring while throwing crazy dance moves out the window and singing at the top of your lungs. A Roady in New Zealand is a trip you won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

Your friends,

Cameron & Roscoe
