Kiwi rugby icon Dan Carter is officially the face of an Australian travel company launching in New Zealand.

He’s been sworn in as the New Zealand brand ambassador for TripADeal.

Speaking to RadioLIVE Drive, Mr Carter says he will play a major part in spreading awareness of TripADeal in the local market.

The company was founded in 2011 by friends Richard Johnston and Norm Black, and the London Financial Times recently listed it as the sixth fastest growing business in the Asia-Pacific region.

Mr Carter says the company offers a range of tours, cruises and escapes around the world.

“They provide some amazing travel packages at unbelievable prices,” he told RadioLIVE.

No stranger to brand endorsements, Mr Carter has previously played ambassadorial roles for Daikin, Land Rover and Healtheries.

Asked about next year’s Rugby World Cup, and if Japan will be great hosts, Mr Carter said: “They’ll be amazing hosts.”

“The culture here is something very unique, and what makes it so special is the Japanese people. They’re just so hospitable; friendly, kind, caring. You really experience that when you’re living here.”
