New Zealand is high on everyone's bucket list, yet the cost of travelling to and around New Zealand puts many off. I visited New Zealand's North and South island in May 2016 as part of our graduation trip, and was surprised at how little we spent in the 20 days we spent there!
Nobody could believe me when I said I spent less than NZD 15/day for food, lived on NZD 20/day in hostels or that I rented a campervan for NZD 50/day for 4 of us when we did our New Zealand budget trip!
Flying was also less than SGD 400 one way from Singapore to New Zealand. Unbelievable? It's true, I booked with budget airline Jetstar!
This brought my entire 20-day New Zealand budget trip to SGD 2565/ NZD 2700. We still had a whale of time visiting the classic New Zealand spots such as Hobbiton, and surely we couldn't miss some of New Zealand's adventure attractions, like blackwater rafting or Fox Glacier hike? ????
(SGD 1: NZD 0.95)
Total expenditure for 7 days: NZD 623 (NZD 89/day)
Total expenditure for 10 days (with campervan): NZD 535 (NZD 54/day)
Total expenditure for 6 days (without campervan): NZD 472 (NZD 79/day)
