These are superb value fares to Auckland and Christchurch in New Zealand, flying with 4-star rated China Southern Airlines.

Some of the flights have a longish daytime connection in Guangzhou but this is a good opportunity to get out of the airport and see a bit of the city.

You can get 72 hour visa free transit in Guangzhou if you hold a UK/EU passport so you don’t need to worry about Chinese visas for this trip.

Sample booking on Skyscanner:

How to Find and Book This Deal

1. Click the relevant Google Flights link in the list above. In Google Flights click the ‘from’ date to see a calendar of prices.​ Look for dates with the lowest prices. You can change the length of your trip in the bottom left corner of the calendar.

2. Click the relevant Momondo/Kayak/Skyscanner link above (I link to the cheapest one for each search). Search using the dates you found in Google Flights and book with one of the online travel agencies in the search results. The prices should be cheaper here but if they’re not go back to Google Flights and book from there. Why are flights cheaper via Momondo/Skyscanner?​​​​​​​

If there’s no link to Momondo/Kayak/Skyscanner above then I recommend you book directly from the links in Google Flights.

For more in depth instructions about finding the deals take a look at my article How to use Google Flights and Momondo/Skyscanner/Kayak to find the deals.

Hotels in Auckland

To get an idea of hotel prices I’ve added a hotel map from below. You can also search direct from the search box here to see the hotel prices for your dates.

Remember prices and availability can change quickly, so if you can’t find the deal it means it has probably sold out. When you see a deal you’re happy with, book it fast!

If you book one of these deals then please let me know, I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Travelling!
