"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YVR." - Chris Myden

Vancouver to Auckland, New Zealand - $776 to $789 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Milford Sound, New Zealand

There are some extremely cheap prices showing up on flights from Vancouver to Auckland, New Zealand right now, on American Airlines.

The dates are off-season, and there's a 12 hour layover in Los Angeles on the way back, but the price is too unusual not to share. They're about half the typical bottom price one can usually expect to pay to get to New Zealand at any time of year.

Availability for travel

Late July 2016 to mid-November 2016

Remember that New Zealand's seasons are reversed from ours.

July is winter, with highs of 14C in Auckland
August is winter, with highs of 15C in Auckland
September is spring, with highs of 16C in Auckland
October is spring, with highs of 18C in Auckland
November is spring, with highs of 20C in Auckland

New Zealand's ski season is from mid June to late September.

    I'm pretty sure the prices you're naming above are in USD. It's actually $200-300 more expensive in CAD.

    The prices are definitely in Canadian dollars. You can even see 'CAD' in the screenshot from FlightHub written underneath the price (although it's a little small and hard to read).

    There may be certain dates where the price is now higher if those dates have sold out of the cheaper flights.

    Which dates were you trying?

    A random test of a few dates shows they're still available in the $700s on some dates. Departures in October seem to be in the $800s and $900s CAD now.

    Larger screenshot with the Canadian dollar indicator easier to read:

    I only ever post prices in Canadian dollars, to keep the price comparisons accurate over time as our dollar fluctuates.

    Thanks Chris for the tip, we booked our family of 5 for just over $3000 return, would be a good price for just two of us normally!

    How has your experience been with FlightHub? I am reading mixed reviews online so I am wondering if they are a reliable 3rd party to book through.

    I had terrible experience with FlightHub when I booked through them and they messed up and neglected to actually ticket the flight, It destroyed my vacation (and I had to book a more expensive, worse flight instead).
    Their customer service person kept lying to me about refunding me the difference (which he never did) and eventually stopped responding to my emails.

    I will never book with them ever again not even for a seemingly bargain flight to NZ
