New Zealand is not huge but to make the most of it you must travel to both islands and experience all the wonder that this country has to offer.
It is so easy to move around and you can easily manage to see both islands in a few weeks and give you time to spend more of your trip in the spots that you like.
The easiest way to get to see all the sights is on a hop on, hop off bus tour, there are several operators offering this service for you to choose from. Our pick for a great time and to get off the beaten track is to use Stray Bus, with awesome busses and drivers who will give great commentary and knowledge from their vast experienced which will make all the difference in your trip.
An alternative option is taking busses from place to place as you like, to get almost anywhere in NZ and off the beaten track you can definately find yourself having an even better adventure. We highly recommend Nakedbus, they offer trips all over the country with fares as low as $1.
Another great way to travel New Zealand is by hiring a car or camper van, for the best rates and most reliable vehicles, you should choose Jucy Rentals, they offer great prices and as you don't have to travel great distances, this can be the best way to have your own freedom at afforrdable prices.
Another option is travelling by train, this service is run by Tranzrail however although we found using busses to be the cheapest and most effective way of getting around.
Internnal flights can be very cheap and get you around quickly, we recommend Jetstar Airlines for the cheapest fares, Air New Zealand also offer well priced flights
