Discount accommodation and special deals

YOURLifeChoices has researched and uncovered these great accommodation ideas and deals around Australia and New Zealand.

If you love camping and have the right equipment, camping and caravanning has to be the cheapest and one of the more enjoyable ways to travel around Australia (provided the weather is kind to you!)  If you are thinking of embarking on a camping holiday, it is well worth getting yourself a copy of Camps Australia Wide: The Ultimate Guide for the Budget and Freedom Conscious Traveller.

If you prefer to have a roof over your head,  check these out:
YHA Australia and YHA New Zealand  (Backpacker & Youth Hostel Accommodation & Travel) is not only for young travellers. These days they are very popular with older travellers too and offer more choice in room options from multi-share to single and double rooms. and

It’s always good to know that offers special rates and amenities for seniors. 

A couple of particular places also caught our eye:

3 day special break for seniors
$450 per couple at Jindivick Gardens, a 4.5 star B&B in West Gippsland (Gourmet Deli Country), an hour from Melbourne: Charles and Carol Brodley have been providing three-day breaks for Seniors at their beautiful property for nearly 20 years.

Gateway Motel Picton
This small motel located at the top of the South Island of New Zealand (gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds), caught our eye because of the sheer number of outstandingly warm reviews it and its hosts, Chris and Kerri, have received. The room rates are reasonable too (AUD90-$117.) The South Island of New Zealand is beautiful beyond compare; why not start, or finish, your trip at the top?
