Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific 3 weeks touring NZ......help!!

Me and my boyfriend are travelling to NZ Nov 2014.
Does anyone know if escape rentals are any good? Or any rentals that have campervans you could recommend?
Also whats a must see and do?
Is £2,000 enough to live off for food, fuel and activites for 3 weeks?

3 weeks is a good amount of time to visit NZ. Have you decided to visit one main island or both?
If both I would recommend 1 week on the North Island and 2 weeks on the south island.

$1000NZD usually lasts a week for the 2 of us for food/fuel/ activities (does not incl accommodation) and we have never travelled by camper so i have no advice on that sorry.

must see's and do's

For 1 week on the North Island I would suggest- Auckland, Waiheke Island, Waitomo caves area, Rotorua (other options could be the bay of islands/northland region or the coromandel peninsula)

For 2 weeks on the south island I would suggest - Nelson, West coast towns, any of the Glaciers, Queens town, Milford sound, Wanaka, Christchurch/Akaroa.

Enjoy your Trip

Jess

Hey,

I'm gonna be heading over to NZ in Sept 2014 on a working holiday visa for a year. I love the idea of a campervan and travelling both islands before I get settled in Auckland with a job.

If you need someone to share the cost etc then I would be game for that. I also have a driving license as well so could share the driving.

Anyway my FB/Twitter details are all on my profile :)
