My husband is being sent to Auckland to work from Nov into Dec. His company have offered to swap his Business Class ticket for 4K for us to use on flights so that the 3 kids and I could join him after his work has finished on 11th Dec hopefully.We'd have to pay 1K ourselves to cover additional transport to get us to his Auckland hotel.
I have spent many hours trying to work out a holiday that would cost us 4K or less all-in. Would anyone know whether I'm just wasting my time, please?
I've looked at Travelodge grade hotels/ hiring a motor home/ restricting ourselves to North Island but still end up way over budget when food/entrance fees are considered.
My husband and I have both been to NZ separately before but would love to take children (15/14/8).
As I would have a real job on my hands to pursuade my employer to let me go (part time teacher) I would really appreciate advice from someone already in the know.
