People who want cheap ski holidays in New Zealand will need to accept that the biggest cost of the trip will be their airfare. New Zealand is a very 'far away' location for many countries in the world and because of this airfare can be on the expensive side. For example the lowest price on a return trip from London to New Zealand on July 26th listed on the travel price comparison website Skyscanner.net is approximately £1500.
The next step of planning cheap ski holidays in New Zealand is to choose a location to go skiing. The best time to ski in New Zealand is June to October. Travelers should keep in mind that November, December and January are the summer months in New Zealand. Most travelers will fly in to Auckland International Airport. As Auckland is not an area that gets snow, travelers can take a domestic flight to their ski destination. Most people prefer to ski in Queensland which is a town located on the South Island. Travelers should note that it is possible to ski in Auckland as there is an indoor ski facility called Snow Planet. More information can be found about Snow Planet on the website Snowplanet.co.nz.
People who are looking for hotel or motel accommodation can find cheap rates on the website lastminute.com.nz. It is also advisable that travelers who are thinking of traveling in the 2011 ski season understand that the Rugby World Cup will be held at this time in New Zealand. This means that both flights and accommodation in New Zealand will be more expensive than usual. In order to avoid disappointment bookings should be made in advance.
