Flights Perth to New Zealand

We are going on a one way flight Perth - Auckland Jan 2014. Is it better to book now or hope a sale comes up?

You are expecting cheap seats in the school holidays? Bit of a lottery really.

January would be peak season for flights across the ditch from Oz to NZ or vice versa. Discounting is unlikely.

School holidays + FIFO between Perth and NZ would give the airlines little incentive to offer sale fares. But there are sales from time to time so sign up to the airlines' newsletters and be one of the first to know.

Do you think it will be as difficult in mid Febuary?

"Difficult" ? ... as in not discounted?

I guess not, the holidays finish at the beginning of Feb so I presume some discounts will apply after. That time of year is still busy with summer holidays and there are also quite a few long weekends in the first few months ... just check and as said before ... sign up for email alerts.

Good luck - January is busy with school holidays - then Feb is busy with all the people who want a summer holiday BUT dont go when kids are on holidays ..... if you get a good price buy now

Maybe you will get a better price if you buy it in segments

PER MEL or PER SYD

MEL - AKL

SYD - AKL

but do allow plenty of time for delays
