All costs on this website are based on $NZ value and includes all New Zealand GST (goods and services tax). Where applicable prices are converted to other currencies using Bank of New Zealand current exchange rates. This means that pricing in currencies other than $NZ may fluctuate as currency values change. (Note: This includes the balance amounts due on live reservations.)
Our system allows you to pay for your tour in the following currencies :
If your credit card is issued in Australia and you choose to pay in AU$ then you should not be charged any currency conversion fees by your issuing bank. Please check this. If you pay for your tour in NZ$ and your credit card is issued in a currency other than NZ$ your issuing bank may charge you a fee (as much as 3%) for currency conversion. Paying for your tour in the currency that the credit card is issued in could save you a considerable amount of money.
Note – Thrifty Tours or its payment system or bank do not charge or add additional credit card fees or charges. Any fees or additional charges applied are applied by your issuing bank.
All pricing on quotes and suggested itineraries are subject to change.
