Im about to embark on a solo trip this coming mid nov! Would be planning to travel around in a campervan (Jucy Cabana).

For those who have drove there, is google map + 4g data enough for car navigation?
It’s not able saving data.. it’s about, not every part of the nz will have data signal. So yes an offline map is still require.

Thanks! Actually when i said 4g, it refers to the 4g connection, not whether 4gb amount of data is useful. In any case, would download offline map first! Or maybe get a physical map

Hi

1. never rented car. What is this car excess thing? When you rent the car there should be option to buy all-in insurance from the rental company right?

2. Any recommendations for wanaka accomodation with free parking? Where is wanaka city centre near (any landmark which i can find on google maps?)? Thanks

Wanaka is a small town, there really isn't a city or town centre, you can search for New World supermarket there, everything you need is probably around that area. I stayed at Wanaka Bakpaka, pretty cozy place with a nice view of Lake Wanaka and also free parking.
