NEW ZEALAND AND COOK ISLANDS TRAVEL BUBBLE
The Cook Islands Government has indicated that re-opening the border with New Zealand, for quarantine-free travel, will not happen until they are fully confident that there is no community transmission of COVID-19 in New Zealand. This will likely occur when New Zealand is at Alert Level 1. All future visitors to the Cook Islands, aged 12 years and above, will need to be fully vaccinated (except those with a medical certificate).

🌴 GOVTS AIM FOR MAY BUBBLE TRAVEL 🌴

Despite the hype, again the government has not announced any travel bubble start dates, even though they’d promised both the Cook Islands and Australia would be open in the first quarter.

The Pime Ministers of New Zealand and the Cook Islands have this afternoon confirmed that they are working in earnest towards a May start date for the opening of quarantine-free travel between both countries.

Who”a keen??? 💕

Skytrain Travel

Skytrain Travel was started many years ago by my father Ian Dyer. It was the first travel agency in New Zealand to start discounting travel for the public. My Father had a passion for groups and once he sold the business in 1986 it has become a very successful business specializing in Groups and Special Interest tours & Holidays. Laura in our office specialises in Pilgrimages all over the world.

My name is Michelle Downey and I have recently purchased Skytrain and now the company is back in the family. My passion is to get people travelling and I know that group travel is a great way to go. Whether you have a special event that you would like to travel to see or a special birthday, conference or family occasion we can make this happen for you.

We also love dealing with schools and sports groups and corporate events.

Our wonderful team members are Laura Yap who specialises in Catholic Pilgrimages and has years of experience with inbound New Zealand travel. Janice Figge has a passion for cruising and luxury travel.
