Ok, I have now signed on to the Kiwi Experience, the back-packers bus pass round NZ. The reason for this was that they were advertising special more than half price offers for bookings made before the end of March. But on further inspection I see you have to take your tour before the end of June, so that’s no use to me!! Let’s hope there will be more offers later in the year.
However, their website looks quite informative for like-minded travellers with plenty of info and updates on the best places to linger a while in on only a shoe-string.
Another useful website for those wanting to stretch their pennies whilst meeting interesting fellow travelers is couch-surfing. Thank you Simon in Wellington, I might try this one out – all part of the adventure.
And finally, Women on the Road, another very helpful site for this global adventurer! Thank you to Caroline for this one.
