There are still a few weeks for ski enthusiasts to take advantage of the winter skill. If you’re sick of hitting the same Aussie slopes, New Zealand has a brace of decent deals on at the moment — but to make it worthwhile, you need to save money on flights. Here’s when you need to book to get the best bang for buck.
According to Skyscanner data, there has been a 59% increase in year-on-year travel from Australia to New Zealand in the final month of winter. Apparently, the prospect of snow-covered kiwis has a certain allure.
So when is the best time to book? On average, six weeks in advance will get you the best deal. In other words, you need to book in the next few days if you want the best deal come August. You can get round trips to Queenstown or Christchurch from $207.
