Book in Advance
If you are traveling in the peak season (Summer), there is no way to find anything cheap that is not in full capacity. Look for special offers and whatever suits your needs and book everything in advance.
Make Plans and Prepare a Fixed Budget
This is not just for budget travelers, as New Zealand can get really expensive. If you are not careful about how much money you are spending and go off your plans, it is easy to run out of money.
Go on Tours
Tours sometimes make great deals and offers. There are also some free walking tours which are great, especially for first-timers.
Be Very Careful When Driving
First of all, if you rent a car, drive on the left side of the road. Next, driving might be difficult as the roads are sometimes too long and tiring. Always rest before moving from one city to the other and learn as much as you can about driving rules.
Plan for the Weather
Driving or not, checking the forecast is essential for planning. Some amazing things to do can be completely canceled due to harsh weather or difficult to enjoy. Snowsports will also evidently need snow and cold weather.
Learn the Culture
The indigenous people have certain rules and codes. One must learn about these rules before visiting these people to avoid offending their cultural norms.
Tipping is Not Mandatory
Although you are not required to tip, it would be much better to tip for good services. The people are kind and hospitable. It would be much better to return some of that kindness.
Internet Will Not Cost So Much
That is because, in many places, it is unavailable. You will be completely off the grid in certain areas, and in some places in the South Island, there will be really terrible internet access.
The Nature is Free, But…
You are not allowed to bring camping gear or litter the environment. Doing the former is illegal, and the latter unethical plus illegal. Bringing food in New Zealand is also against the law, with several possible exceptions.
Tap Water is Safe
Tap water mostly comes from glaciers. Basically, if you drink some water in some places in nature, that would also be safe but not recommended.
It is legal and a great idea for going around. That is in case you are careful.
Speaking of Hitchhiking, it is safe, like almost everything about the country. But generally, follow safety procedures and do not leave your belongings out in the open. Lastly, most of the locals are nice but do not trust every living person.
