    Hi British,
    Thank you for your quick response. I talked about the "allowance" in my response to AlanS and as I mentioned, it was usually for lunch on our own. Did you find that the exchange rate was higher when using a card than when you just brought local currency?

    There are two fees. The eTA and International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy. Most visitors have to pay both, but some people are exempt for one or the other. I don't know if they charge a convenience fee, Australia does. I managed to squeak in before the changes went in effect in October, arriving just before even though I left after. If you go through Tauck they hopefully get it right, but sometimes its best to apply yourself, i.e. directly through New Zealand Eta site, you will get the best price.
