Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the country's second-largest urban area. It is three sevenths the way down the South Island's east coast, just north of Banks Peninsula which itself, since 2006, lies within the formal limits of Christchurch.

The river which flows through the centre of the city was named Avon at the request of the pioneering Deans brothers to commemorate the Scottish Avon, which rises in the Ayrshire hills near what was their grandfathers' farm and flows into the Clyde.

The usual Maori name for Christchurch is Otautahi ("the place of Tautahi"). This was originally the name of a specific site by the Avon River near present-day Kilmore Street and the Christchurch Central Fire Station. The site was a seasonal dwelling of Ngai Tahu chief Te Potiki Tautahi, whose main home was Port Levy on Banks Peninsula. The Otautahi name was adopted in the 1930s. Prior to that the Ngai Tahu generally referred to the Christchurch area as Karaitiana, a transliteration of the English name.

Travel Tips for a Better Holiday Experience

No matter where you go in the world, plenty of small details will make the difference between an average holiday and one that you will remember fondly for a lifetime. It is all about traveling for a better experience and catering to your own taste; however from our own mishaps we are able to give many hints on how to explore the world easily and avoid stress.  Here they are

Have a Better Holiday Experience with These Travel Tips

1: Don’t be scared about delving into local street food. More often than not, the vendors are just as clean as normal restaurants and street food is a great way to learn about local culture without breaking the bank

2: Most holiday sickness stems from dehydration or sun stroke. Remember to drink lots of water and carry a bottle where ever you go, especially in hot countries like Turkey

3: Always be aware of opportunity crime. When most people travel, they tend to let their hair down and forget small safety tips such as not accepting drinks from strangers and keeping that wallet hidden out of sight.

4: Ring your bank or credit card provider if you are travelling abroad. When credit or debit cards are used in a different country, it will often flag a security breech. By informing your bank before you leave, you prevent the scenario of having your cards cancelled while you are abroad.

5: Don’t overpack because this just means more luggage to carry of which a lot you probably won’t use. Most locations and hotels also offer laundrette or clothe cleaning services

6: If you want to use wi-fi, look for the hotels that offer it free of charge. There are plenty of them across the world and only the luxury hotels charge for it. If needed, look around locally for restaurants that keep their signal open as well. They often display this on signs at the entrance

7: People who have the best travel experience never class themselves as foreigners. They view themselves as visitors eager to meet the locals, taste the food, and learn about the culture and traditions. Break out of your comfort zone and make the most of every country you visit.

Well done!

Our experience was a positive one. Everything went smoothly, the car was great and the rate exceptional.
