Take a debit card and get money out of ATMs, just like at home.

get a citibank card before you go, they're good for travel. You can do majority of transactions on credit though so find one without international transaction fees (eg 28 degrees)

Changing overseas currency in NZ gets a very poor exchange rate. The trading banks are best but they aren't flash and bureau de change are even worse. By using ATMs you get the wholesale rate less the credit card fee
