Day 10 of our trip saw us driving from Christchurch to Dunedin to Curio Bay where spent two nights. We drove the entire trip down the East coast of the South Island in our new rental car. This rental we actually arranged through Transfercar. We had the little Mazda Demio for 8 days and paid a total of $135, plus we were given 1 free tank of gas, which saved us about $60. The car was a big change from the BMW X3 that we had on the North Island, but it was a neat experience using Transfercar, and we saved a bunch of money, which is always good!
While we were in Dunedin we stopped at Ocho – a chocolate store. They will soon be moving to a much larger location where they will be giving tours. If you’re in Dunedin I would highly recommend it!
