Our Tips & Tricks on booking your hiking trip:

We’ve found the best prices for your hiking or walking trip in New Zealand. Great deals on things like accommodation, transport and tours.

Lowest Price Guarantee on Campervan Hire from Queenstown Airport – Compare Prices of 15 Motorhome Companies

Jucy Rentals are definitely the cheapest with a really big range of camper-vans. If you’re looking for a van you can stand up in or with a bit more room then try MightyBritz and Maui are very popular, they cater for small and really big campers.

Find accommodation near your hike

I always use Booking.com instead of Airbnb for all my accommodation now. It works out cheaper, they don’t have those extra “Service Fees” or extra “cleaning fees”. Looks cheap until you get to pay. Plus Booking.com have a lot of holiday homes now, pretty much the same selection as Airbnb. You won’t miss out on the range.
