To be fully prepared for your trip, here is some information about the cost of travel in New Zealand. It’s true, prices have changed a lot over the past decades. New Zealand is far away from almost everywhere; the population is small, and the standard of living is top-notch – but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing! In fact, these are often some of the reasons why people want to visit our country. The landscapes remain untouched as a result of the limited presence of people – to put things in perspective, Japan is a similar size to New Zealand but has 127 million people as opposed to our 4.5 million. This leaves ample green expanses for us, our sheep, and explorers like you. Additionally, our elevated living standards translate to superb infrastructure, healthcare facilities, hiking trails, and other amenities.
