The helihike one need the coupon for direct booking, dun have code. The rest dun have discounts

I budgeted $50 a day for food, coz i cook some of my meals. For petrol, u can sum up total distant u are going to travel, then factor in fuel consumption to estimate petrol cost. Other tickets cost just sum up loh

Wha. Sad.

Yeah. But want to bring as little cash as possible lo.

2k 2.5k enough not ah for 2 pax. I think most activities can pay by CC.

Probably is food and petrol (some) need cash. What else requires cash? I'm going to cook also .

Yeah that's why want to know roughly how much lo. Or is most of them accept or don't accept cc for petrol.

If most accept then I probably budget half of what I need to pay for petrol for cash.

Hi All,

Looking to do a trip in mid-late dec, rough itinerary, does this look feasible?

Day 1: Christchurch
Day 2: Arthur's Pass to Hotitika
Day 3: Fox Glacier / Franz Joseph
Day 4: Haast Pass > Wanaka
Day 5: Wanaka
Day 6: Mount Cook
Day 7: Dunedin (Otago Penisular)
Day 8: Stay somewhere in middle from Dunedin> Te Anau
Day 9: Te Anau
Day 10:Te Anau (MilfordSound)
Day 11: Queenstown
Day 12: Queenstown

Not sure if I should remove Dunedin and Southern Scenic Route for more time in Mount Cook, Queenstown area. Will be driving all the way.
