Head north in the New Year for a price that's just about right.

Air New Zealand has unveiled its Boxing Day sale featuring a catalogue of North American hits including Hawaii, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver.

The fares are only available for 48-hours, having launched at midnight 26 December and will disappear at 11:59pm AEDT 27 December.

They take off for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and the Gold Coast with flights departing between April and July 2018.

Both economy and business class fares are on offer and for an extra $1 you can throw in a second checked bag – because you'll need it for all the shopping you intend to do while overseas, right?

Sample fares include Sydney to Honolulu from $789, the Gold Coast to Los Angeles from $869, the Gold Coast to Vancouver from $1,369 and Sydney to Los Angeles from $899. All are roundtrip prices.

This sale isn't long, but it is oh-so sweet and you can book your tickets now for it at the Air New Zealand website.

How good are these fares?

These are right up there with some of the best Air New Zealand sale fares to the US. Over 2017, we've seen fares to Los Angeles drop to $839 return and just in November they went up to $955 return. With a starting fare of $899 to Los Angeles, these flights aren't the cheapest, but they're not expensive by any means. Throw in the fact that they include peak summer dates and you're staring right into bargain territory.
