I'm in the process of rough planning a budget trip for myself (25), my partner(30), sister (20) and her partner (21). The plan is to spend 2.5 weeks in the South Island taking in the highlights but not feeling too rushed or have a super detailed intinerary. The dates to go are the last week in September and first two weeks of October this year.
Would travelling by motorhome be a good option or by bus and staying at cheapish motels work out better? Have only travelled to Thailand and Bali staying at the one hotel the whole time so this trip is quite different to plan!
Thanks in advance
