No, cash is not essential on the Bucket List Walk. There is one lunch on Day 9 that is self-catered and not included in your package – you’ll be in Rotorua city and free to go wherever your tastebuds take you.
You’re welcome to bring a small amount of cash, if you wish, in case we make a spontaneous coffee or icecream pitstop! It’s also a good idea for those times when EFTPOS or credit card facilities either aren’t available, or aren’t working correctly. Please note: cheques are no longer an acceptable form of payment in New Zealand.
