New Zealand is pulling out all the stops for our Australian neighbours – travel in NZ has never been easier. It’s as simple as booking a flight, finding a place to stay, and arranging a ride – 1, 2, 3 ski!
Don’t forget there are a lot of house rentals available, too. Bookabach and Holiday Houses, for example, offer house rentals ranging from magnificent villas to cute apartments, with prices starting as low as $95 NZD per night for a two-bedroom chalet. (They often feature winter holiday deals, too.) Enjoy a home away from home with useful amenities like a washer/dryer, your own kitchen (great for saving money on meals), and a lounge to relax in at the end of the day.
Make sure to shop around – Christchurch and Queenstown airports’ websites both list regional rental car companies. And make sure you get to your destination safely: don’t forget to check the road and travel conditions before you head out.
