I am having absolutely no joy in contacting anyone regarding my query over whether excursions in NZ can be paid for with a credit card. I posted a request yesterday but it hasn't appeared anywhere. Perhaps someone can help me on this. Maybe I am doing something wrong with my postings but to date the community has provided me with no help whatsoever. Thank you.

Hi Travelcam,

Sorry for the delay in a response to your question.

Please see below for the excursions that can be paid for using credit card:
- Mt Tarawera Floatplane/Helecopter
- Glacier Helicopter
- Mount Cook Flights

All other excursions will need to be paid in local currency.

Kindest Regards,
Amy

I am having the same problem in getting info on paying for trips. It makes planning very difficult. I have never had this problem before

Hello Travelcam,

I paid for my excursions back in England before I left. Made it easier for me with my money when I was in Singapore and New Zealand. Due to weather, we could not fly in the helicopter at Franz Joseph and the float plane at Rotorua. The Mount Cook only went ahead on our last day and that was $425 NZ credit card only. There were extra activities where the local currency was used- Gardens by the Bay was 80$ and 20$ to go up on the roof of the Marina Sands Bay Hotel. Quite a few paid extra for the flight back from Milford Sound as they could not stand the 4 hour journey back by coach.

Have a wonderful time, such a wonderful trip.

Jan

Because of lack of info (this has now been answered although rather late) I have taken out a zero credit card with Santander which means you can pay for anything in foreign currency, anywhere in the world with the card at no extra cost and if I cannot pay for any trips with this then so be it as I do not want to be carrying a whole load of cash around with me for 20 days.

Thanks. See my post before yours regarding how I have overcome the inadequacy in receiving the info I required.
