Cheap flights to New Zealand

New Zealand (NZ) is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean composed of two main islands – North Island and South Island – and many other tiny islands. The main airports in NZ are found in Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, and Queenstown.

Auckland Airport (AKL) is the biggest and busiest airport in New Zealand. It is the gateway to Auckland in the North Island, the largest urban area in the country. The airport has an interesting range of dining and shopping options. It even has a feature called “The Mall” where visitors can shop for duty-free items online and pick them up upon arrival or departure. Like Auckland Airport, the airports in Christchurch, Wellington, and Queenstown also maintain outstanding facilities and services that will not disappoint any traveller.

Why plan a trip to New Zealand

Whether you are travelling solo or spending a holiday with your family, NZ is an ideal travel destination. Made even more popular by the Lord of the Rings movie, the country boasts of a natural beauty you simply can’t find anywhere else. In fact, some places here would make you feel like you are on another planet.

What’s a trip to New Zealand without visiting the Lord of the Rings filming locations and getting lost in the wonders of nature? When in the North Island, channel your inner Hobbit at the Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata, enter the otherworldly Waitomo Caves, and go on a road trip to Auckland’s West Coast. And, never forget to learn about the Maori culture by visiting some museums in Wellington or having a cultural immersion in the Maori villages of Rotorua.

Your New Zealand trip does not stop in the North Island. Grab cheap flights to New Zealand’s South Island and get ready to be more awestruck by nature. Cruise along the Milford and Doubtful Sounds in the Fiordland National Park, bike through the vineyards in Central Otago, and bungee jump or skydive in the lakeside resort of Queenstown.

With its long coastline, New Zealand is a seafood paradise, so never end your New Zealand trip without sampling their freshest seafood like oysters and mussels. Savour delicious Māori hāngī fish, chicken or mutton too, when you visit the cultural villages.

Best time to visit New Zealand

New Zealand has four seasons but the climate could get very erratic. In fact, it is normal to experience different seasons in one day. Whether you visit in summer (December to February), autumn (March to May), winter (June to August) or spring (September to November), you’re bound to have a wonderful time in New Zealand.

While summer is the best time to visit because of weather stability, it is also the peak season so expect prices of New Zealand flights and hotels to be significantly higher. It may be a little difficult to score cheap flights to New Zealand during this time. You may compare prices of New Zealand flights on Skyscanner to book cheap flight tickets to New Zealand on your preferred travel dates.

New Zealand travel budget

The average price for meals in a day is about NZD35 (RM95) while hotels in New Zealand could range from NZD 40 (RM110 ) to NZD120 (RM330). If you are travelling with a group, also consider renting a car in New Zealand to save cost and experience at least one the epic road trips New Zealand has to offer.
