Me and my wife (soon to be get married on 8th Dec) are heading to Oz and NZ for our honeymoon. After spending New Year in Sydney we arrive in Christchurch on 3rd Jan and plan to travel round NZ for 3 weeks.
The only accomodation I have booked so far is in the Bay of Islands for 3 nights at the end of our holiday (nice beachfront villa to relax in ) but for the rest of the time we want to see and do as much as possible.
I've been reading up on various websites (including this one) about the best ways to travel and places to stay and wanted to gauge what people thought about:
1. Hiring a Campervan OR
2. Hiring a car and staying in B&B's etc..
I've heard this is the busiest time of the year for travelling round so thought that a Campervan was the best idea but then I've read that even with a Campervan you will need to stay in designated Camp Sites which are still likely to be busy..
Also - would people recommend that we book Accomodation for 3-4 days at a time in different locations (in advance) and then base ourselves there - going off doing different day trips or are we best to keep on moving to cut out unecessary travelling back and forward etc..
Thanks very much
Lee and Michelle
