Here are a few notes and tips we would like to share with our guests and tourists in Rotorua in general:
1. Have Adequate Protection
a. Travel insurance is highly recommended. It's important especially for overseas travelers.
b. Sunscreen - skin cancer is on the rise. But it can be prevented. Even if the skies are cloudy, it doesn't mean that UV rays are not penetrating through the clouds. Make sure to always take UV SPF 30-50 lotions with you. Much of New Zealand travel is outdoors.
c. Clothing - bring clothes for 3 seasons! NZ is famous for 15-20 degree temperature variations during the day! A great way to keep warm is to use layers. Just strip off each layer as long as there is continuous sunshine. And layer up as the wind chill increases.
2. Research in terms of Accommodation pricing, packages and location
a. Accommodation - choose motels with large rooms where kids can roam about. It's important to have parking within the premises and some area where children can play. MALFROY has a children's playground next to the owner's lodge equipped with swings and slides. Researching accommodation helps in getting good rates too. By knowing the average pricing of accommodation in a certain location, mums and dads can make comparisons among several key considerations: location, amenities, price, facilities and user reviews.
b. Transportation - booking flights or rental cars ahead makes sense especially during peak seasons. The closer you get to the date, the more you have to pay. This is generally the trend on online booking systems.
c. Food - gather a list of cafes and restaurants in an area and look up reviews about their food and pricing. Planning food choices even before arriving to your destination prevents over spending on food that's not worth the price you paid.
3. Bring memories home
In the age of Facebook and Instagram, it makes sense to stay at motels which offer free, high speed wifi (available at MALFROY motor lodge). Magic moments are instantly shared and documented online. Don't forget to bring your cameras, chargers and adapters. Remember, New Zealand power plug adapters have an earthing pin.
Enjoy your travel! Most of all, plan for flexibilities to keep the stress minimal!
