Booking Lodging Ahead of Time?

Jump to last reply

Mr. Pickle and I are planning our New Zealand itinerary. We'll be on the South Island May 21st through June 2nd.

So far, we plan to stay in Queenstown our first night, at Milford Sound Lodge the second night, Te Anau the night after that, and then another night or two in Queenstown before we head for the West Coast.

We will reserve rooms for these four or five nights in the next couple of days, but is there anywhere else that we might need to book ahead of time? At this point, we're heading through Wanaka to either Fox or Franz Josef glaciers (more as a stopping point for the night than anything), then probably through Greymouth to Nelson and/or Marlborough Sounds, if we can, before we go south again. We want to be in Christchurch the evening of June 1st, since our flight leaves the evening of June 2nd.

Since we're traveling during shoulder season, I don't think we should have problems reserving a room the day before we arrive in most places, but I thought I'd ask here to check.

Thanks for your help!

Lee Ann
