So you have decided on your next New Zealand location for either business or pleasure – perhaps both – and you need to book nearby accommodation. It is quick and simple using Yellow Maps™ and it is really easy when you know how.

Location Search

Visit the Yellow Maps website and navigate to the Accommodation Search tab.  Enter  the location of your chosen city for example: Auckland.  Click on the search box and within seconds your results are displayed. You can also narrow down your search to the dollar amount you wish to spend per night.

Check Availability

Within the list of displayed results you will see the rate of all accommodation options within your location. If you are interested in finding out more information, click the Check Availability box. A very detailed information box will be displayed with an address, photos, hotel description and a date availability calendar where you can check the rate per night and lock in any dates you wish to stay. You can also get directions to and from the hotel too, which is really handy!

Price Information & Street View

Another useful feature of Yellow Maps™ is the ability to see the location of all accommodation options on a map of your chosen city, with a price per night tag. This is especially handy if you wish to narrow down accommodation close to a particular area or venue, and want a brief overview of hotel names and addresses. Just click on the price tag box of a particular hotel and you will receive a mini information box with the name and the hotels address. By clicking on the Street View link you can also see a location photo of the hotel. You can get directions to and from the hotel in this info box too.  If you’d like further information just click on the Availability link. Here you can view more photos, as well as read a description about the hotel and view the date availability calendar.

How to Book

If you’ve made your decision and would like to book your accommodation it’s really easy. Within the Availability Calendar you will see the date and price range. Click on the particular price range which falls under the date you require (for example $100 on 21/06). You will automatically be taken through to a booking page where you can enter in more information.  It’s straight-forward and your accommodation is instantly guaranteed. You can also change your currency if you are an International visitor so there’s no nasty surprises on your credit card. If you wish to change the date or hotel, just click the back button and you will be taken back to your original search.

    I had a crack with using Yellow Maps the other day to book some accommodation in Wellington. The best thing about it was being able to search on a location like Mount Victoria and find all the hotels close by with their price displayed. It beats having to trawl through lists of hotels individually checking their location and price.
    Being able to check out the hotel in Street View was also a big bonus!!
