Default Flight Query!!

Hello all,

We're hoping to come out to Auckland end of May / start of June. We've not got our visa's yet - we're gathering all info for our ITA as we speak and it should be sent off to immigration by the end of March.
We probably wont get our visas before we go but we've decided to risk it and go anyway!!!

Just wondering if it's better (cheaper!!) to book flights now or to wait nearer the time???

Does anyone know any good companies to book with?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Natalie

With the credit crunch. it's difficult to beat the major airlines own websites.

Hi

Try netflights.co.uk or southalltravel.co.uk. My in-laws have just bought tickets from Netflights - Heathrow to Auckland 20 May to 5 June for £511 flying with Singapore Airlines. When we were emigrating last year I watched and watched the fights and the prices going up and up before we finally picked a date and booked. I know my BIL haggled for his flights but it didn't work for me.

We looked on Air NZ website and watched the prices fluctuate sometimes hourly;we were lucky and were online at the right time to get ours for 2 adults,2 kids Glasgow/London/LA/Auckland/Chch/Dunedin for £2443. A few weeks previous it had ben £3440. We also used a promotion code (mov****) which saved us 15%. I think that has expired now but if you look at the other expat site they may have more info for you HTH
