Flights to New Zealand

New Zealand is on the other side of the world and is also two islands so flying is the only way to go!

:: International Flights

Unfortunately New Zealand is rather a long way from the UK so the only way to get there is by a long trip on a plane (it'll be worth it, don't worry!). Prices have been relatively stable over the past few years due to increased competition and online sales. On average you can get a cheap direct flight to NZ for around £600-800. However it is worth noting that no flight ticket will last longer than a year and so if you are thinking of travelling on to OZ or the South Pacific (who would blame you) then you may want to buy a one way ticket which costs around £400. | |

:: Round the World Flights

Another option is to purchase a round the world ticket. These allow you to stop over in a number of destinations and are better value if you are doing your travelling in one year. The tickets are usually limited by destination or by miles so you can create your own custom trip. If you've made it all the way to the other side of the world then it's definitely worth visiting the South Pacific Islands, Australia or Asia. | | |


:: Domestic Flights in New Zealand

Over recent years domestic flights have dropped considerably in price meaning it is now a cost effective way to travel around the country. You can fly from Auckland to Christchurch for around £50, so when buying an international flight it is worth finding the cheapest destination as you can easily add an internal flight on to it. |
