Forget all the summer plans you still haven’t bothered to book yet, cause you and the whānau could be vacationing it up in Raro and chilling beachside for less than the cost of one two-day festival.
AirNZ has released a whole bunch of flights to the Cook Islands for cheaper than your petrol to get you to your summer fest lineups - I mean, there’s no way I can confirm that, but with the current price of gas, I’d say it wouldn’t be far off.
We're talking $255 for Economy, $410 for Premium Economy, and for those who want to fly high in style, Business Premier starts at $570.
The sales here for a good time, not a long time, so you better gather the girls before October 4th.
There are deals on your way back too.
From today until October 9th, fares from Rarotonga to Auckland are from $208 for Economy, $363 for Premium Economy, and $523 for Business Premier.
Flights are available between 30 January – 27 March 2024, so you can kick the new year off in tropical style.
Jeremy O’Brien, the General Manager of Short Haul at Air New Zealand, reckons Raro is a good shout for a summer vacation.
He says: “January-March is an ideal time to visit the Cook Islands – temperatures average around 26 degrees Celsius and any summer rain is typically in the form of brief tropical showers. What’s more, the summer months are generally quieter on the islands, so you won’t be fighting anyone for a pool lounger!”
