$299 flights to Rarotonga in the latest Air New Zealand sale

Posted: 17 August 2017 10:50 am


Paradise, thy name is the Cook Islands.

Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check out our list of current flight sales to find a bargain.

Flights to the pristine beaches and crystal clear waters of the Cook Islands are back on sale for the brilliantly sunny price of $299 each way. This is for departures from Sydney, though you'll find flights from Melbourne and Brisbane on sale for $439 each way too.

Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia are both hosting this beauty. If you're flying out of Sydney, you'll hop on an Air New Zealand flight bound directly to Rarotonga. Those flying out of Melbourne and Brisbane will fly Virgin Australia to Sydney where you'll then transfer onto an Air New Zealand flight.

You've got a wide range of 2017 and 2018 dates to fly on, including 27 October to 7 December 2017, 12 January to 29 March 2018, 6 to 19 April 2018 and 4 to 31 May 2018. Naturally, peak periods, including school holidays and Christmas and New Year, are excluded from the sale.

Fares include carry-on luggage only, though you can upgrade your ticket to include 23kgs of checked baggage for as little as $30 more each way, or you can spoil yourself with "the works" package, which includes a light meal and entertainment for an extra $70 each way.

While these fares aren't the cheapest that we've seen (fares dropped to just shy of $269 in June), they do come pretty close. And, as Air New Zealand is the only airline to offer direct flights between Sydney and Rarotonga, it makes them not only the cheapest fares available at the moment, but the fastest as well.

This sale ends 12 September unless seats sell out prior. Tickets can be booked at these prices through Flight Centre.

      Hi Vili,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      I’m afraid we don’t have information on promo flights in March 2018 for Air New Zealand. I suggest contacting them directly to further inquire.
