The 9th of September to the 23rd October 2011 is when the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand will be held. With 48 games being played, including the final match at Eden Park in Auckland, there are going to be many New Zealanders and international visitors alike looking for accommodation. For the international visitor in particular, an attractive option of getting around the games while also taking in the beautiful sights and attractions of New Zealand involves hiring a campervan and booking accommodation at holiday parks across the country.
The beauty of hiring a motor home or campervan is having all of your travelling gear in one convenient location. It eliminates the need to move suitcases from motel to motel. Instead, you get to setup your temporary home-away-from-home at the start of your trip, only having to pack up once before heading home.
The 48 games are spread across rugby stadiums throughout New Zealand, with games being held in the following regions: Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Rotorua, New Plymouth, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill.
Each of these regions is home to several camp sites where you can arrange to stay the night. Camping sites offer a safe and affordable place to park your campervan, plus the opportunity to utilise kitchen, shower and laundry facilities. We have listed a few camping sites worth checking out below.
-Bay View Snapper Holiday-Park
-Capital Gateway Motor Inn
Even if you don’t decide to hire a motor home or campervan as your transportation option, you can still arrange accommodation at these camping sites. As well as powered camp sites, many of these camping sites also include on-site self contained units, cabins with bathroom facilities and tent sites with public toilet and shower facilities.
For affordable accommodation and the chance to meet a wide range of people, booking into holiday parks like we have mentioned above will make your trip around New Zealand a very enjoyable one. You may also be able to arrange separate bus transportation from the holiday parks to the rugby games, saving you from having to find parking space for your campervan too.
