First off i’m 95% sure there are atm’s at Auckland airport, or there are two banks once you clear coustoms, but i’m sure there are atm’s before that.Aussies dollars on the plane should be fine.I don’t know which airline you are flying on but unless you are flying on jet star or freedom air or pacific blue you shouldn’t need any money for drinks or food.Shouldn’t be a problem paying for stuff with cash, thats how I paid for all my options in europe but I paid with my credit card in America. I know over here it’s always a good idea to ask for cash when buying stuff with EFPTOS at the supermarket(beer and junk food) only one bank charge for doing two things. Hope this helps a little, if i’m wrong about anything sorry and you can come to my house and hit me hard in the shoulder. Try Export Gold Speights or Tui, Steinlarger gives you a good hangover.
Just a quick suggestion –since you don’t have a credit card is to get an ANZ visa debit card (can be used anywhere in the world since its visa but you don’t need any credit application for it I don’t work so that’s what I’m getting). Have an awesome trip- I’m going later Feb 9th <!--graemlin::)-->
There are plenty of ATM machines around New Zealand and in the Auckland airport. It is a good idea to carry around $200 in NZ cash in case of emergency but you really don’t need to carry more since there are a bunch all over. I never had a problem getting my money.
