Why It's a Deal According to a recent Kayak search, airfare from Los Angeles to Auckland, a regional flight to Sydney, and a return flight to Los Angeles from Sydney starts at $1,710 in late-November (Air New Zealand). Add to that $212 per person for three nights at The Quadrant in Auckland and $277 per person for three nights at the Ibis World Square in Sydney, and you're looking at $2,199, taxes and fees included, for booking the parts of this deal separately. For $204 less, this package gets you the international and regional airfare, six nights in Auckland and Sydney, and all taxes and fees.
More Additional nights are available at the Ibis World Square from $80 per person, per night. Tripmasters offers a variety of hotel options in both Auckland and Sydney; upgrade to the four-star Sky City Hotel in Auckland for an additional $50 per person and the four-star Victoria Court Hotel in Sydney (with breakfast) for an additional $82 per person.
