Two of us will be in New Zealand end of this year and it will be our first trip to this beautiful country. The trip will be half devoted to sightseeing and half fly fishing. We will be renting a campervan one way from Christchurch to Auckland. We are planning to take a ferry from Picton to Wellington on Dec 31. At the moment, the price quoted by the two ferry companies are as below
Non refundable $261
50% refundable $293
100% refundable $366
50% refundable $313
100% refundable $365
My question is if the price is slightly to drop or increase in the coming months? Should we book now? Also, which company is preferable? We are not so much into amenities such as movie watching and private cabin. We just want a safe and affordable joinery across and will probably spend time in enjoying the scenery. We will likely eat breakfast on the ship.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
