2440 ratings | 241566 views
Today we talk about how expensive it is to travel around New Zealand! For a full breakdown of prices and links check out the blog post: http://wp.me/p5G3cw-E4 New Zealand is a backpackers paradise with it’s two main islands packed with adventure, adrenaline sports and stunning sceneries. But with such beauty can come a hefty price tag! For the budget conscious backpacker, New Zealand can seem like a challenging place to make every single dollar stretch, but with the introduction of working holiday visas, more and more travellers are moving their way through the country and saving money as they go! After being in New Zealand for almost a year, I thought I would break down some of the most common expenses you are likely to encounter to help you budget your trip!

Aki ora! Two questions: 1. Are the trolley buses from GO Wellington still running? 2. How much is room hires (rents) in homes or flats cost (there it is per week but round off to monthly of possible)? in Wellington? If too dear as, then how is the mainland (South Island) and Southland insofar as hires (or rentas) for one person? Ta!

I envy those who live in New zealand. Your currency is way weaker than the British pound (GBP) or the Euro so really living in the UK or Europe is more expansive than living in New Zealand/Australia? If you look at the currency 20 NZ Dollars= 10 GBP! and even compared to the Euro 20 NZD= 11.8 Euro so if I buy for example a kettle in the UK for 20 GBP it might seem cheap but it's not ( 20GBP= 38 NZ Dollar). But if I buy a kettle from NZ for 20 NZD that's only 10.5GBP. If the delivery to Europe where I live wasn't so expensive from New Zealand ( and most shops don't deliver abroad) I'd buy everything from New Zealand or Australia

I was really disappointed by Pak N Save. I once went through their wine section looking at the specials and the prices on the special tag were the same as the regular price underneath. Unless I missed something... seems pretty shady.

Ted Tedster (11 months ago)
Let's summarise this....(from a NZers)....NZ is a RIPOFF COUNTRY with a Huge Wealth Gap......This situation developed in the last say 30 years....Although there is a monopolies commission....if the govt doesn't like their findings,they overturn them!!.There is now considerable corruption at high levels....even the former Prime Minister (English) was caught fiddling his expenses and he remained in his job after being found out.!!!. The Jews now occupy all the key positions in parliament and business circles (the mayor's of Christchurch,Wellington and Auckland are Jews) NZ does have huge mansions in Auckland and 90% are owned by Jews....ALL the real estate agents are owned by Jews. There are about 40,000 homeless NZers. So not only are tourists ripped off but also average NZers.....During the eighties the govt sold off huge amounts of govt owned assets which went straight into the hands of wealthy Jews..... In short.....NZ has amazing scenery.....but the social conditions are anything but amazing....we re sort of a mini America....where powerful Jews have stripped that country of its wealth....Some areas look exactly like a third world country....that is the way NZ is heading.
Joshua Zeregaber (6 months ago)
thats basically like every developed country. Economy is good, but a big wealth gap that keeps growing and slowly destroys the country.
Sean White (11 months ago)
Good practical advice. NZ is a beautiful country, but is isolated and expensive.
LifeAsWeKnowIt (11 months ago)
freedom camping and free camping is not illegal in NZ, however, each district gets to make up their own rules on it so check the rules for the area you are in. Also, the roadside stops along the highways, you can stay in them for 12 hours before anyone can move you along. If they try just tell them you are too tired to keep driving, a police officer can not make your drive if you are tired.

Plenty of decent coffee for $2.50 around NZ if you know where to look. And it's "Hell Pizza" not Hell's. You can buy a decent car for $1000-1500 NZD easy and sell it for the same price. And paperwork is simple for buying cars. Used cars are not any different to most of Europe. $30 and $60 for a domestic flight? Dream on. If you book months in advance maybe, but which backpacker is planning that far ahead?

Nice tips! Love your quirky style! Just a friendly heads up on the freedom camping: most freedom camping areas will require you to have a self-contained vehicle i.e. a camper with a toilet in it. Best to look up where you want to freedom camp before you go parking up randomly. And car rental prices soar in summer - best to travel in shoulder seasons ;)

A hot pie is the best value food in NZ. Cambodians are the best pie makers. My favourite is steak & kidney, that is a fantastic meal, costs about $3.50 i think. Basic mince pie is about $3. You didn't mention fish and chips, that's also quite good value.

Meh hells is ok. In Auckland, try pakuranga pizza club or Sals 😊
Inge van Rossen (1 year ago)
I disagree with the ''buying a car'' part. 5000 NZD for a decent car? I bought an old mazda 626 for 800 dollars, which only needed 2 new tyres and a normal service. Me and my friend have driven it for 10.000km in 3 months. Eventually sold the car for 1400 dollars. So I even made a profit. There were a lot of cars in between 1000-2000NZD that are great cars, but you gotta bring someone with you that knows something about cars. Yes it was slow and it wasn't great in the corners and it wasn't great on fuel consumption, but hey it was one of my first cars and I still love it today. Wish I could buy it back when I',m back in New Zealand, because I know the new owner.

tooo expensive...
Jaynee Millar (1 year ago)
She complains how how expensive nz is. But clearly she must be going to all the tourist spots. Check out not touristy parts. You get a real feel of the place that's not as expensive. Also. It shouldn't feel expensive since converting money from other countries to NZ dollar gives you more money
