Booking flights however seems very complicated - especially as I am able to be flexible with the dates and airports I can use. As a result I am confused as to how I can book these - is it best to use a travel agent? I have always usually booked flights myself but I would be here for hours trawling through the multiple options.
I am looking for the following flights:
Timings: I am flexible with timings for when I can go - I have 4 weeks of annual leave that I can take anytime between 21st October and 12th December.
To see the South island of NZ and East Coast of Australia, I am flexible as to the order in which I see them in based on the price of the flights. I would like to get the cheapest possible flights both in terms of the long haul flight from/to London and the internal flights within Australia and between New Zealand.
I am hence happy to fly from LONDON INTO or OUT OF the following airports:
I am hence looking for prices and options based on the above airports based on my timings above.
I will also need internal flights based on the below itinerary - ie. to Sydney, to Melbourne, to Brisbane, to Queenstown, etc but this is subject to the long haul flights I book.
- Franz Josef
- Abel Tasman
- Wellington (can skip this if flights are expensive from here)
- Whitsundays (via flight to Cairns?)
- Fraser Island
- Byron Bay
Are any of the above places I'd like to see better to fly from one place to the next? Ie. if flights are cheap from Sydney to Queenstown then maybe it's better I fly this route, etc.
If anyone has any tips on this and has done something similar, please let me know!
