There are also hundreds of deals on accommodation, dining, activities and shopping on the Grabit website,

"Not only can visitors travel at a great price, they can enjoy off-season discounts on their accommodation, activities and dining choices. It makes for a very economical holiday which in the current market is appealing to lots of travellers", says DGLT Marketing Manager, Donna Jarden.

"It's a perfect time to try out the region's signature activities like the Hukafalls Jet at $79, or for the family to learn to ski, hire gear and go sight-seeing on the chair-lift all for $299. The whole family can stay and dine at Suncourt Hotel for $139 per night or book a Superior Lodge at Taupo DeBretts and swim in the hot pools all day for $199.
