During our time in New Zealand I kept a pretty comprehensive record of what we were spending our money on, for personal interest and to also help us plan our second half of travel after Christmas. I think it might be quite a useful tool for other travellers out there and so I've included the breakdown below.
|Spent on...||Amount (£GBP)||Notes|
|Campervan||508.56||we had already paid a deposit of £141.33|
|Transport||131.55||buses and Cook Strait ferry|
|Food and drink||278.49||our grocery shops, eating out and sweet treats|
|Accommodation (hostels)||93.24||Jailhouse accommodation, Christchurch, we had already paid for the Auckland hostel before arrival|
|Activites||735.50||Polynesian spa, black water rafting, jet boating, gold panning, heli-hiking, cinema, Milford Sound cruise|
|Wifi and phone||26.25||Topping up phone and paying for wifi at certain camps|
|Car related costs||131.25||parking, tickets and fines|
|Miscellaneous||77.69||umbrella, cooking gas, matches, laundry, gifts|
Just in case you are in a rush - we normally can get back to you in less than a day!
