Here’s How You Save Your Wallet From Unnecessary Loses While Traveling To New Zealand

December 14, 2016 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

So you have decided to plan a handy trip to New Zealand. You are destined for the time of your lifetime in the land of animals (only 5% of the overall population are people) and gorgeous landscapes (the ones you’ve seen in The Lord of the Rings movies). The Green Continent is home to a lot of penguins by the way – more species live there than in any other country. So yeah, there are a lot of reasons to grab the bags and book a flight. But wait? Is that not expensive?

Well, unless you are a recent jackpot winner in a multi-billion dollar casino game – and if you are feel free to share your online pokies guide with me because I could use a few extra bucks – you won’t be interesting in spending too much cash.

Luckily I have gathered a handful of neat little hacks to safeguard your wallet. Interested?

Major traveling tips: The Big 5

  1. Did you know that the seasons flow in reverse to most of the world here? December to February are the warmer months of summer. A lot of tourists rush onward for sightseeing during winter and prices skyrocket! Think about visiting the land in Spring or Winter even. You’ll have as much fun while paying less.
  2. Planes are your friends. And they are the only reasonable travel solution if we are talking about a destined location surrounded by sea. That’s why you should keep an eye out for airfare sales. Here’s a little life hack that makes life easier: you don’t have to monitor the entire sky, just pay attention to deals on Quantas or Air New Zealand.
  3. Play the dollar VS Kiwi dollar gamble. Book the trip when your cash is stronger. You’d be surprised but that’s how I saved a total of $1.027 on my last trip to NZ. Stronger buck means lower fares.
  4. Keep all of your cash on plastic and forget about currency exchange counters. Your ATM should do the trick just fine. Additionally we live in the 21st century and nearly every merchant or hotel accepts your VISA. If your credit card plan supports zero fees for international transactions you won even need the help of your ATM.
  5. Don’t leave tip. This may sound a bit greedy but hear me out: the tipping culture is not accustomed to New Zealand. No one expects you to leave some extra cash.


Yes all f these little tips may seem too minor to consider alone, but once put together the perform miracles. You will be able to save as much as the 60% of your total trip expanses by paying for only the services you need. Nice, right?
