Hi everyone, I'm Lorna, a Stuff travel reporter. We're doing a story on how affordable travel within NZ is. For those of you who have travelled within the country post-lockdown, we'd like to hear whether you've been able to find suitable flights, accommodation and activities within your budget.

MetService has issued a heavy rain warning for Northland, with heavy rain watches in place for Auckland and the Coromandel Peninsula. Strong wind warnings were also issued in all three locations. Heavy rain may cause streams and rivers to rise rapidly. Surface flooding and slips are also possible and driving conditions may be hazardous.
