Travel Resources

Meet all those little things that made my trip.

Along my trip through New Zealand I used a lot of what I call “Travel Resources”. It can be everyday items, websites or books... things that I interacted with regularly or not and that helped me during my trip. It is a bit of a free for all, if I think of something, I’ll put it here.

The goal is to give you my take on each of them and give you an unusually insight on a working holiday visa experience in New Zealand. You of course will not need to use all those or may use different ones but knowing what you will encounter may be helpful.

Things in my bag


New Zealand businesses still rely a lot on brochures to promote their business. A huge part of each iSite is filled with brochures for all type of tourism related business in the area.

Some free guides (that you can find amongst brochures) are full of vouchers offering various discounts, coupons, vouchers, specials and other bait to get you to book with them directly. However keep in mind that those discounts are given to anyone so you can often get better deals by booking online. Don’t book one thing just because you are holding their coupon.
