High prices and long-haul flights stop most travellers’ plans of a trip to New Zealand dead in their tracks. But, as Sarah Schlichter’s tells in the article Top 25 Ways to Save on New Zealand Travel, a holiday in New Zealand doesn’t have to break the bank.
Travelling outside of the summer peak season from December to February, getting creative with connecting flights and airline carriers and sticking to either the North Island or South Island will keep things reasonable. Creating a hit-list of free activities is essential too, says Sarah.
“It costs nothing to hike in most national parks, lie on a North Island beach, wander along the Rotorua Lakefront or stroll through botanical gardens in Queenstown.”
Travelling by bus rather than renting a car cuts costs considerably – both InterCity and Nakedbus run cheap, reputable services. When it comes to food and drink, eating in is always a good money-saver, and countless bars with happy hours come to the rescue for those on a budget. For the most budget-friendly accommodation, consider camping, staying in hostels or even staying and working on a farm. Whatever money-saving techniques you adopt on your tour around New Zealand, your bank balance will thank you.
