Discount deal websites

Grabone: A tractor ride then quite a hike to see the gannets


Getting away may be about doing nothing, or for others doing something or a lot.  Here is a list of websites to help you get your outdoor gear together for the road, and for the later group - to find a deal or two for activities at your destination.


The concept of discount, voucher and coupon websites is still relatively new to New Zealand, and while we have our share of loyalty programmes direct discounts to the general public certainly isn't as widespread as it is in larger populaces. 

Having said that you can still get a deal or two if you are willing to wait, be flexible and decisive.  Who doesn't like to stretch their funds a little further ‽


Most of the websites below require some sort of sign-up, whether that is to get their email notifications or eventually purchase their products/services.  Some though will allow a guest user; but if you are keen on a bargain and know what you are looking for, signing up to several for a finite period of time, could be worth your while.  [It may not be so easy to net a deal exactly when you want it on the road.]
