Itinerary help!

Hello everyone!

Me and my husband are in the midst of a 6 month trip and are looking for help for itinerary/time in each place..

The places we've picked are ones we have researched a bit for the adventures we can do in each one.
Can someone give me a bit of feedback as to whether this itinerary is appropriate for the amount of time we have..
Coming from Canada - we are used to long days of driving and not really being able to fit anything in on a driving day.. i am thinking that will be a bit…

Hi there,

My husband and I are planning a two week trip of the South Island in March. Our plan was to do the North Island by car and the South with a campervan. We were planning to take the ferry over from Wellington and pick up a campervan in Picton, but is looks like most of the hire companies only do pick-ups in Christchurch.

Is there a way around thing or does anyone know of any reliable companies that hire campervans from Picton?

We'll be dropping off in Christchurch.

Thanks.

Hi!
I want to visit NZ with a campervan, cause I have 2 month or so for travel there and think it's the best way.
Anyone know which is the best month to buy and which is the best to sell the vehicle?

I mean, I think March and April could be a good month for buy, cause is the end of the high season and I could buy for good price. Is it like this? and for sell?
Thanks for your advices and recommendations!

Hi,
We are a family with 2 adults and 2 small girls.
We just made a last minute change in plans and decided not to go to the Catalines due to time constraints.
We will be in Dunedin and the next stop is Te Anau.
We would like to break the long drive and stop somewhere in the middle.
any where you recommend? any nice and short attraction on the way?

We would like to plan and book ahead as in the last few days everything is full due to the Chinese new year.

Thanks

We, three adults, arrive into Auckalnd from Christchurch on the 17th of March afternoon and leave early morning the next day.So not much time. Best to stay around Central Auckland, Parnell street area? My flu-addled brain is up to here with reviews, most places seem to have very mixed feedback. B&B or hotel/motel?
Is it too late to get bookings already? Any tried and tested options?

Hi all!

I'm from India and this is going to be my first trip solo, so I needed some thoughts on my itinerary. I'm planning to visit both islands in May and June because that's pretty much the only time I'm free this year. I've always wanted to go to NZ (Sorry, but like everybody else, LoTR got me hooked!)

I have deliberately avoided a guided tour because I don't want to rush through what has been my dream destination for over a decade now. So (gasp) I've pretty much planned this whole trip all…

My current phone plan cannot be used overseas. I can buy an international SIM card before leaving home or buy one on arrival in NZ. Only need it for a couple of weeks. My phone is not locked. Does anyone know of a cheap, short term plan and SIM card that I can buy in Wellington? Occasional phone calls (local and overseas), text and small amount of data. Also need something that is dead simple to set up - don't want to spend precious time while on holidays phaffing around with the phone…
