Regarding the accommodation

Hi, I have a travel voucher for South and Sound( start from 19th on Sep) I would like to save the cost for my accommodation. In this case, do I need to book accommodation by myself? If I asked for accommodation to the driver, how much does it take? Can I chose the accommodation? For example, the first day I will visit Nelson. I saw the accommodation on the Internet where pick up next day. I would like to stay Tasman bay backpackers because looks reasonable. Can I chose or just accommodation that is determined? If so, different cost for each? And if I would like to stay longer, can I book accommodation by myself? Thank you very much. This is for the first time to join the Kiwie Experience bus.

Kia Ora Manami,

Thank you for contacting the Kiwi Experience team. 

Once you are on the bus you will be able to book your accommodation through your driver guide. This is guaranteed at each overnight location for your first night, except Franz Josef we guarantee 2 nights and in Queenstown we guarantee 3 nights.

Your guaranteed accommodation will cost between $26-$33 per night. We have recommended accommodations in each location. In Nelson for example we stay in Custom House Backpackers this is your guaranteed accommodation. We pickup up from Tasman Bay Backpackers aswell so if you want to book this yourself, then all good.

If you do decide to book your own accommodation along the route, a recommendation I would make is try booking accommodation that is close to our main/central pickups this will make sure it is more convenient for you regarding pickup. I have attached a link below with our main pickups.
