School holidays and restless kids are like the changing tide — they come rain, hail or shine. The best approach is good preparation, so don’t wait for the kids to get bored and cranky these coming holidays. Instead, book a Kiwi Holiday Parks and Accommodation (KHPA) stay somewhere your kids haven’t been before and give them an experience they’ll be talking about all next term.
To help make your family adventure possible these holidays, we’re letting two kids stay free with two paying adults at any KHPA location until 31 July 2018! Just use your Fly Buys or Kiwi Card when booking. If that crazy deal’s not enough to get you and the kids in the car, here are seven ways a KHPA stay during school holidays will have the whole family smiling.
1. Heat things up with cool winter activities.
The simple act of making plans will see the team motivated and ready for some winter fun. Booking accommodation and planning an itinerary packed with hot winter activities makes for valuable family bonding. Try mountain biking or hot pools near Rotorua, hit the slopes around Wanaka or visit Franz Josef Glacier.
2. Stay warm with accommodation options galore.
The 41 KHPA sites dotted around NZ have accommodation types to suit all budgets. Families can stay warm and cosy in self-contained units with kitchen facilities and multiple bedrooms. The kids will relish having a space of their own, and parents and kids alike can get a decent night’s sleep at the end of each fun-filled day.
3. School holiday fun that doesn’t cost the earth.
KHPA endeavour to get as many people exploring Aotearoa as possible. We do this by offering accommodation options that are affordable before you even think of the kids staying free. Prices vary from one holiday park to the next and depend on what type of accommodation you want to book, so have a look at your favoured location and use our online booking system to see your options. If you prefer the old dog and bone, contact our Central Office or call your desired park directly.
4. Our parks have amenities up to our eyeballs.
Our individual park owners understand a big part of the fun for school holiday-making families is the fun that can be had without leaving the grounds. KHPA sites specialise in onsite amenities and facilities that will make your stay gangbusters. Kids can make a splash in hot pools, size up the competition in games rooms, and work up a hunger on the playground. Some parks have their own petting zoo and some even host children’s programmes during holidays. Parents can make the most of the cooking facilities and enjoy the fact they’re not having to ‘invent’ fun for the young ones.
5. Winter means less hustle and bustle.
Some people still aren’t convinced that winter is an excellent time to get out and see more of this scenic country. Not to worry, that just means there are less cars on the road, better rates and fewer crowds for the rest of us.
6. Triple Fly Buys points during July.
If you’re not one to leave home without your Fly Buys card, you’ll be pleased to hear you can earn triple Fly Buys points when you book a KHPA stay this July. No joke — TRIPLE FLY BUYS!
7. Grab a regional KHPA deal
Some of our great parks are running their own deals to help you enjoy a winter stay.
Amber Kiwi Holiday Park Christchurch are offering a free Kiwi Card (worth $35) when you stay three consecutive nights in any roofed accommodation.
If two adults stay for two consecutive nights at Te Anau Kiwi Holiday Park they can start their day with a free continental breakfast.
At the top of the south, guests of Tahuna Beach Kiwi Holiday Park & Motel near Nelson can save up to 30% on their July winter getaway.
