I am planning on doing a self drive around the south island in Dec at the start of the xmas period (24/25) until the end of the first week of Jan. I've been browsing for the past month for flight tickets between Syd and Christchurch and the prices are so high! $780 return! This seems very expensive as I paid for Auckland last year $500.
I was wondering what month is the best time to buy flights for christchurch? Should I book asap or might the prices drop a bit in oct?
Hope anyone has any insight as I know it varies from year to year.
