Why choose BBH? Hotels, Motels, Hostels, Air B&Bs, plain B&Bs and couch surfs. Homestays, Farmstays, Goodstays & Badstays. Beds in Sheds & Bunks in Dumps. They’re all online with plenty of booking sites urging you to “hurry, book now”. But what’s great and what’s fake? What’s cheap and nasty, and what’s the real deal?

DON’T PANIC BBH is here to save the day with a network especially created and managed to meet the needs of Free Independent Travellers, Latter Day Explorers and part-time Adventurers. Just look for the BBH brand to identify accommodation & information you can trust.

Exclusive BBH operators are all independent, but only those meeting BBH’s strict criteria are accepted into the network. All 160 meet their local body requirements including annual safety inspections.

Stable Predictable Prices No surprises. Published BBH prices are guaranteed. They are changed only twice a year. That means you can reliably budget in advance for an extended visit to NZ. A BBH Club Card makes budgeting even better.

Security All booking transactions are handled by BBH itself, and can be checked on your own personal BBH profile. Your Credit card details are NEVER made available to ANYONE.

Advocacy In the unlikely event of serious disagreement, BBH is able to serve as an intermediary between guests and operators if necessary. Our email and phone help lines are monitored every day of the year - though not 24 hours - so you’ll never be left waiting too long for a genuine response from a real person.

It’s estimated that OTAs export $200,000,000 from New Zealand’s Visitor Industry every year. They contribute little of real value and often even less in NZ tax.

BBH 2017 SUPREME AWARD for Sustained Excellence Pg 36



A BBH Success Story


ver since 1991 - long before the Internet and TripAdvisor et al, BBH has provided a unique, NZ-exclusive insight into hostel accommodation. On one night in February, EVERY guest at every BBH hostel is asked for their opinion of EVERY NZ hostel they have stayed in, on a scale from 1 - 10 for total ENJOYMENT. For more than a decade, HOPEWELL BBH, a jewel set in the exquisite Marlborough Sounds, has topped the rating charts with scores from 98+ to a perfect and astonishing 100%. Like many BBH operators, Hopewell’s owner-operators have to love their location, lifestyle and their guests to achieve and sustain results like that. Hopewell has the attributes of an exclusive luxury resort without hype and hubris. It would be wonderful if Hopewell could be on everyone’s itinerary, but even if you’re unable to sample Hopewell’s perfection, we’re very confident that our unique and totally NZ-focused BPP rating system is the best guide to NZ’s special places, enjoyed so much for so long, by so many special travellers. Try it and rely on it. You’ll be happy when you do!

There’s more to BBH than beds and bookings Travel Insurance On the long trips, travel insurance has a way of expiring while you’re not looking and just when you need it. If that’s happened to you, there’s some well thought out, BBH sourced, travel insurance available, also on our website.

BBH Noticeboards

Whether you need to work to top up your travel funds or wheels to explore the real NZ - you’ll need... GENERAL WORK VACANCIES • HOSTEL JOBS • WORK WANTED • VEHICLE BUY & SELL And if you enjoyed BBH life so much, you can even buy your own slice of heaven... you won’t be the first to do so! Get started... go to


VEHICLE INSURANCE Third Party Vehicle Insurance can be tricky to arrange for overseas visitors. BBH makes it a simple affordable purchase online or at any BBH. Unlike some other policies, a fixed excess of $500 applies - whatever the insured driver’s age. The policy will cover another vehicle if you need to replace the ‘old’ one, and it even covers another person driving with your permission! It’s easy, open and reliable. No hidden costs or conditions. Just like BBH itself. :-) Go to: for an instant quote and cover NB: This insurance is not available to NZ residents. 12
