Vancouver to Auckland, New Zealand - $522 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Glow worm caves near Auckland

A number of booking sites are showing flights from Vancouver to Auckland with Air New Zealand for as low as $522 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

It's likely a mistake fare, so keep the expectations low if you book it, and wait at least 48 hours for the dust to settle, and it becomes clear that your booking is confirmed by the airline.

Availability for travel

June and July 2016

How to find and book these flights

1. Try one of the following Kayak searches:

June 19, 21, or 22 to July 14

June 25 to July 14

June 25 to July 18, 19, or 20

2. Click through from Kayak to whichever
booking site is showing the cheap price.

So far I've seen them on Travelocity, Expedia, CheapoAir, and FlightHub.

Long trips - from $598 CAD roundtrip including taxes

If you're up for taking a really long trip to New Zealand, there also seems to be flights from June to, say, November 2016 available for $523 CAD roundtrip including taxes.


1. Try this Kayak search

June 15 to November 21, 22, or 23

2. On the Kayak search result, click on the orange 'Select' button and select Expedia as the booking site. It won't work if you click through to the Air New Zealand site.

Click through to Expedia.

It doesn't have to be November that you return though. When testing it out, you can try changing the return date on Kayak to a date in August, September, October, November, or December 2016, or January, February, March, or April 2017, and you still have a good chance of finding flights for $514 to $532 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Keep the dates flexible on Kayak when searching. And remember to click through to Expedia, not Air New Zealand, to find this price.

I've also seen similar results when changing the departure date from June 15 to...

May 17, 18, 24 or 25
June 2 or 8
June 21, 22, or 23

You can also find flights from Vancouver to Sydney (SYD) or Melbourne (MEL), Australia in the $900s CAD roundtrip using this same method. It's nowhere near as crazy as the prices to New Zealand, but still cheaper than usual.

Vancouver to The Gold Coast (OOL), Australia is also available in the low $900s CAD roundtrip.

Other cities in New Zealand: Vancouver to Christchurch (CHC), Wellington (WLG) , or Queenstown (ZQN) are available for $601 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Try substituting these cities on the Kayak searches above. Click through from Kayak to Expedia.

Virtually all destinations in New Zealand seem to be available for this price. Even Nelson (NSN).
