  If you are going to travel in New Zealand, you donít need to worry about accommodation. There is a great number of places for you to stay in almost any city, offering you from the more simple such as a Backpackers hostel as well as catering to the more demanding customers. The first thing you need to decide is the type of trip that you are going to take, for how long, and with how many people, as this will form the basis for the best accommodation for you. For example, If you are going to hire a motor home or caravan such as the photo above, you will not need to worry about accommodation, as you sleep inside, and all you need is to find a nice quite area to park the car. If you are travelling with a family for a longer period of time Motels can offer excellent value.

  Here is a list of some of the advantages and disadvantages of each style of accommodation. Note that prices supplied below are a guide only and can vary depending upon the seasons:

  Caravan or Motor home Ė Advantages: Mobility, donít need to find accommodation, sleep anywhere (except where otherwise signed), small kitchen for preparing meals. This option is only worth it if you are more than one person, the more people the cheaper. The cheapest option is for 3 people travelling. Average cost is Nz$120 per day. Disadvantages: Lack of a decent toilet, very cramped, limited power supply, unless you are in a caravan park. Read more...
  Motel Ė Advantages: Big rooms with a seperate lounge area, rooms with tv, fully equipped kitchens with stove, fridge, utelsils, microwave etc... reasonably spacious bathroom, all towels and bed linen Feels more like a apartment.
