The prices shown for our New Zealand holidays do not include flights due to the extensive choice of routes, fares and stopover options available for travel to New Zealand. There is no such thing as a standard price for flights to New Zealand, costs vary according to time of year, route flown and offers available however a reasonable indication of air fare costs is £800-1000 (excluding airport taxes) based on economy class.

We prefer to quote for flights based on individual requirements so once you have an idea of your New Zealand travel arrangements simply telephone or email us for a quotation. We’ll need to know the following information:

  • your planned departure and return dates
  • desired stopovers on either or both journeys
  • preferred airline and/or preferred route
  • your favoured cabin class (economy, premium or business)

Our New Zealand travel specialists will then be able to secure the best fare available to suit your needs.

Airport transfers

Make your arrival in New Zealand as straight forward as possible and let us arrange an airport transfer to your accommodation so that you can just relax and enjoy the start of your holiday.

All international visitors travelling to and transiting through New Zealand will require an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). The ETA can be applied for via the ETA mobile app c, or by completing the online form on the Immigration NZ website.

In addition to the ETA, visitors to New Zealand are also required to pay an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL). This contributes directly to the tourism infrastructure and helps protect the natural environment of New Zealand. You will be charged for the IVL automatically when you apply for your ETA.

We recommend that you apply for your ETA and IVL well in advance of your departure date. Applications only take up to 10 minutes to complete and can take up to 72 hours to approve. Your ETA and IVL are valid for multiple visits and for up to two years. For more information on NZ visa requirements please speak to your Travel Specialist or visit the immigration website.

Your passport should be valid for at least a month after your departure date. However, we strongly recommend having at least six months’ additional validity on your passport, as requirements vary for individual stopover destinations.

Though the travel information provided with your booking confirmation is accurate and correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of being sent, exceptional circumstances may sometimes occur that alter the advice given.
