Forget all the summer festivals you still haven’t bothered to book yet, cause you and the girlies could be slaycationing in Raro, chilling beachside and sipping a cocky-t for less than the cost of one of my all too frequent online shopping blackouts.
AirNZ has released a whole bunch of flights to the Cook Islands for cheaper than your petrol to get you to your summer feste lineups - I mean, there’s no way I can confirm that, but with the current price of gas, I’d say it wouldn’t be far off.
We're talking $255 for Economy, $410 for Premium Economy, and for those who want to fly high in style, Business Premier starts at $570.
The sales here for a good time, not a long time, so you better gather the girls before October 4th.
There are deals on your way back too.
From today until October 9th, fares from Rarotonga to Auckland are from $208 for Economy, $363 for Premium Economy, and $523 for Business Premier.
Flights are available between 30 January – 27 March 2024, so you can kick the new year off in tropical style.
Jeremy O’Brien, the General Manager of Short Haul at Air New Zealand, reckons Raro is a good shout for a summer vacay.
He says: “January-March is an ideal time to visit the Cook Islands – temperatures average around 26 degrees Celsius and any summer rain is typically in the form of brief tropical showers. What’s more, the summer months are generally quieter on the islands, so you won’t be fighting anyone for a pool lounger!”
