Damm! Qantas has rescheduled my flight time to CC. Instead of less than 2 hours transit and reach CC at 1300 , now they arrived me to take the later flight and ended up 12 hrs later. I bought it at sale price at $900 and so have to be treated like that. Most probably I will have to cancel my trip to NZ liao.
Yet to travel on qantas but got such thing as reschedule to so late? Not confirmed timings one meh regardless of what type of tickets you paid for?


Anyway can anyone recommend if I should buy data in sg to use in nz or go there buy data card or router?

Now then we know. Initially the flight that I paid for is to depart Singapore at 2040pm and reach brisbane at 5am with a short transit at 1 hour plus and reach CC in early afternoon. I believe Qantas has oversold my brisbane to CC flight and rearranged to a later evening flight.

I bought the air fare during last year black Fri sale at $900 per pax. That why treated us like a cheapo pax who don't deserve any deal.

No limitations with Wilderness, Jucy and Maui. For the others, you may need to check the specific T&Cs although I suspect there will be no limitations too.

Thanks. But in the law, will the weight restrictions on our licence apply?
Jucy biggest is condo right? So i guess that should be below the 3 tonnes weight restriction.

Wow. Good deal! Especially those who bought SQ to Wellington at $698 and also got this fare.

Quick check. If International Driving Permit is required for driving in NZ?

Renting from Apex & Omega.

IDP required only if the driving license is not in English.

Just booked air tix for a trip in Aug and am now shopping for a self contained camper rental

Been trying to find reviews for providers and found the following

Wilderness - new modern vans but expensive
Maui - slightly cheaper than wilderness and relatively new vans
Britz - 30% cheaper than above 2 provider but older vans (are they hand me downs from Maui?)
Apollo - no positive reviews and also can’t find any review of van quality

Looks like Britz 4 berths is a good balance of space and price based on my Budget. Anyone has used the brand care to share your personal review?

Thanks!

Thank you
