Airfare to New Zealand will take a big chomp out of your vacation budget, and the outdoor adventures the country is known for -- like whale watching, glacier hiking, kayaking and bungee jumping -- can be extremely pricey. Fortunately, you can save a few coins on accommodations. There's a network of motels, campgrounds, holiday parks and hostels (known as "backpackers") throughout the country, offering basic lodging at affordable prices. To reduce your food budget, get a place with a kitchen and cook for yourself.
