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.

Trademe has the monopoly on what kiwi buy, sell but also on a wide range of services. Buying a car, finding flatmates, finding a flat, selling & buying things, finding a job… It’s all in one place, not necessarily convenient but used by many.

Creating an account is only useful if you plan on buying or selling something, for job hunt or flat hunt, no need to bother with that.

Trademe offers a rating system where people can rate a seller or a buyer after a transaction, make sure to deal with trusted sellers/buyers only as you could be in for a bit of trouble otherwise.
