This qualitative research considered the issue of relocation for specialist treatment in a New Zealand context from the consumers’ perspective. Analysis of data from open-ended interviews identified three factors that underpin the phenomenon of ‘travel-based’ accommodation in New Zealand: the strong desire to return home, the small geographical distances that make this possible for many and the strong determination to endure hardship associated with travel when distances are long.
