New Zealand March 2011 - extras
Post: #1
Hello
i have booked on this holiday, but from what i have gathered optional extras will be offered when we arrive. I am on a tight budget and therefore i wondered if the list of additional trips/experiences could be posted or emailed to me so i could then plan accordingly. Also can you or anyone who has been on this trip suggest a daily budget for meals? (as apart from breakfast, most days we need to buy lunch and dinner daily) thank you.

Hi Karen
Prices haven't been set for 2011 optional excursions yet but I have copied in our prices for 2010 as a guide. I expect prices will be similar for your trip but bear in mind that some may change.
I would allow £20-30 a day for food and drinks, though I'm sure you could do it for less if you want to.
Kind regards
Olly, your editor
