The Rugby World Cup kicks off tomorrow. If youâ€™re joining the scrum of rugby fans from the UK who are heading out to New Zealand to get involved, youâ€™ll want to spend a couple of minutes reading the travel advice that the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office have put together especially for rugby revellers.
Alcohol-free zones are strongly enforced, amber means STOP and under no circumstances should you pack honey in your luggage. And if itâ€™s in a crocodile-skin bag, well, forget whatâ€™s happening on the pitch â€“ it might be you thatâ€™s in for the shock of the tournament.
As ever, the FCOâ€™s advice is bang on the money. A few of the key points they have raised are listed below. But itâ€™s seriously worth taking two minutes to read their full advice. New Zealand has some quirky local laws and customs and knowing about them could potentially save you a lot of hassle.
