Maruia Hot Springs are very relaxed about dress code. True most folks go clothed into the water but no one bothers if you are bold enough to go naked - it is a natural place and surely the forest is offended if you don’t. (Visit summer 2020)

Why don't you ask the insurance company? If I were you I would be more worried with the rental company providing a car without snow tires..

For flights etc. this is ...
