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!

New Zealand is so so expensive and and tax is high.

Hey, I know USD is going to be different than the rest of the world but these prices seem reasonable, in fact it is about the same as living in upstate NY. Also $1 USD at time of post is equal to $1.50 NZD so your money travels pretty far. Vehicles will be a challenge.

South Africa is more expensive than NZ. $1 for a loaf of bread. Here we pay between R15 and R18 for a loaf of bread. That's $1.42 and $1.71 respectively.

It is funny a number of UK Folk that travel all the way down here to see New Zealand and Australia and yet ask them have you been to Switzerland and most say no it's too expensive but it's only 1050 ks away from London.. A 12hr drive like Brisbane to Sydney to see the huge Swiss alps.. just saying what looks dear to you or no car industry which is the best thing for New Zealand because we once did have a car manufacturing industry which protected them from car Imports during the 70s and 80s and cars were extremely expensive back then not now. You can pick up a very good car 5 grand these days.

Accommodation =find a BF who lives alone in a studio :) Get a supermarket loyalty card for discounts. Find local pubs with happy hours in 2 for one lunches, like www.thebluestoneroom.co.nz it has has loyalty card Best time to travel the countryside is in Feb, March, April, harvest season, buy fresh veg n fruit from roadside stalls, Asian supermarkets have cheaper vegetable in cities. Get a fishing rod, harvest seafood with limits. Buy preloved cars n vans from backpackers, you can pick up cheaper than at a yard. Special work visas become open in harvest season when shortage of workers is declared, usually in Bay of Plenty, Kiwifruit.

You can apply online for a small fee 100NZDs i think, do not pay cash for a job for visa, its illegal for the employer, https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas
I was just in New Zealand. Did a whole bunch of videos. Loved it there, but it is quite pricey even though we did the cheapest version possible. Rented a van, drove from Auckland to Wellington. Caught the ferry. The cheapest way that was recommended to us was to drop the van off in wellington and rent another. We looked everywhere to do this. But could not find anything in Picton. (The other side) the ferry was $700+ gas was $2.30/L. Alcohol is 2 or 3 times the price of North America. So just bring some extra money.
The 28-year-old, fake, 42-year-old boy of two British parents of Jewish origin who fled his family from the occupied territories after the 1948 war to Britain and then to New Zealand and stayed for 11 years and then settled for residency in Australia and obtained Australian citizenship in 1970. Brenton went to the occupied territories in 2017 and 2018 with visits lasting six months. He is a member of the Masonic Forum in Canberra, capital of Australia, listed as something very much other than a social organization. Before the attack, 12 bombs were planted in the same area surrounding the mosque and connected to the explosion via Mobil, which was dismantled by the authorities after all the houses were taken out of the population. An automatic weapon will release the entire contents of the safe in one push without pressing the trigger for each shot of Israeli weapons. The bullets and shots were made in Israel. The shooting took 17 minutes and 4 seconds long enough for the police to quickly find that the police station was only 2 kilometers away from the mosque, which marks question marks about the New Zealand authorities. New Zealand is a country that fights Islam and most of its officials are Masonic.

This is good BUT doesn't mention what wages are here. So when working to survive, price is unknown! Minimum wage is about €17 p/h. 19-22 is concidered a 'living wage'. As someone who works 50 hour weeks at 19p/h, I can assure, it's expensive to live (especially eat well) here. So beautiful though. So it's worth the hard slog. BRING LOTS OF SAVINGS!! Especially if you like pubs..

All prices of new goods incl. food, include tax of 15 percent (GST). The price on the item on the shelf includes GST. I note in some other countries the price is 'plus tax' which may cover both city and state taxes.

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 (1 year 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 (1 year 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 (1 year ago)
Good practical advice. NZ is a beautiful country, but is isolated and expensive.
LifeAsWeKnowIt (1 year 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.
