Call STA Travel 1-800-553-7907 for a great deal on flights.

Participants can choose their own flight routes and dates of arrival. However, it is a program condition that you arrive in Auckland for the compulsory orientation. We use your confirmed flight itinerary to book your two night’s arrival accommodation.

Travel in New Zealand

New Zealand may be small, but there are great variations in scenery. Friendly cities contrast with long, sandy beaches, rugged mountains and lush tropical and temperate forests.

New Zealand is also a great place for adventure and extreme sports. Skiing, snowboarding, surfing, bungy jumping, scuba diving, whitewater rafting, mountain biking and rock climbing are as widely available as less rugged options such as hiking, camping and horseback riding.

Traveling from place to place is easy via bus, plane, train or car. The cheapest and most popular way to travel is by bus. Discount bus passes can be purchased before or after arrival as can special air and rail bargains. IEP can give you information about buying or leasing a car.

There is plenty of budget/backpacker accommodation throughout the country, both through the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) and independent hostels. Hostels are also great places to meet other people of all nationalities.

New Zealand Living Costs

Previous Work New Zealand participants have earned an average of NZ$300-400 per week. It could be some time after arrival before you receive your first paycheck, so it is vital that you arrive with sufficient funds (NZ$4200) to pay for your food, accommodation, travel and other expenses during these initial weeks.

When you find long-term accommodation, you will probably have to pay your first month’s rent in advance along with a security deposit (approx. NZ$600 in total). Once you have settled in, expect to pay NZ$150-200 per week for food and accommodation. With reasonable budgeting, you should be able to save enough to finance your travels.
