The total cost of the 10 items in wellington Hotels was $93.35, in Christchurch hotels was $99.20 and was maximum in Auckland Hotels at $129.25.
The list of items included coffee and a bottle of water also. The prices of the items were calculated by taking out the average price charged by three, four and five star hotels.
Auckland, also known as city of sails, came out to be the cheapest country in terms of the prices of internet access, minibar spirits, hamburger and chips. But the visit from the airport to the hotel is very expensive in Auckland, which is an average of $63. Auckland charges the most in case of laundry.
