Comments

I don't know why this has taken so long - maybe because I knew no one was going anywhere anytime soon - but anyway - I would like to say a HUGE HUGE thank you to Janine Tuzza for having the foresight to secure return flights on Qantas for Alex Neubrandt and I so that we could get back home from South Africa before Australia and NZ closed their borders. It was touch and go, but we did it. Thank you Janine.

Your holiday and beautiful memories start from the very first call. With 34 years of experience I offer you travel from the norm to the very unusual.

CHANGES TO INTERNATIONAL ARRIVAL PROCEDURES AT AUCKLAND AIRPORT - as received from MIQ Data Division

From 16 April 2021, your journey through Auckland Airport may be different to what you have experienced before (or expect) and some processes may take longer. This is to keep international passengers who are going into managed isolation separate from those able to travel quarantine-free.

What is changing?

When you arrive in Auckland, you will proceed through the airport and be transported to your managed isolation facility without your checked baggage, unless border officials require a specific inspection. Make sure you listen to and follow all border agency instructions.

Your checked baggage will be collected and delivered to your managed isolation facility after you arrive. If you are staying in an Auckland facility it could be 4-6 hours until you get your bags. For those going to Hamilton or Rotorua it could be 6-8 hours.

If you are transferred to Wellington or Christchurch your baggage will be transferred with you on the same aircraft.

Preparation for your flight

When preparing for your flight to New Zealand, remember that you will not get your checked-in bags for a while, and make sure that you:

 Have everything you need during this time in your carry-on bags. This could include things like a change of clothes, essential medication or supplies for your children. (If required you would be reconnected to your baggage for anything essential, ie medicine)
 Have all your documentation ready and easy to get to before you board the aircraft. This includes your passport, negative COVID-19 Pre-Departure test (or medical certificate proving you are exempt from testing) and completed arrival card and health declaration
 Label your checked baggage clearly with your full name and any other unique identifiers. Ensure your bags are closed securely.
 Put any food or medicines you are declaring in your carry-on bag so that it is readily available for inspection

Find out what you can bring or send to New Zealand and what you need to declare

If there is an issue with the delivery of your bags
We will do our best to deliver your bags to you as quickly as possible. Contact your Managed Isolation Facility front desk if there are any issues with the delivery of your bags.

OZZIE HERE WE COME?

So finally the borders to Australia are open from 19 April. This means no isolation when you return and no Covid PCR test if you have not left or been anywhere in New Zealand for more than 14 days. YAY!!!

A WARNING: If things change you can be stuck in OZ so keep on top of things if you have made bookings. This means that any cancellation or change fees will be implemented by the airlines.

So with that out the way, there are some exciting fares from Air New Zealand.
28-day advance purchase fares
21-day advance purchase fares
14-days advance purchase fares
3 day advance purchase fares

This means that on a 28-day advanced fare to Brisbane you are looking at NZD 720 return fare including taxes and 1 piece of luggage.

Get booking for July. School holidays are from 7 July - 26 July.
Some ideas - Sunshine Coast/ Gold Coast/ Melbourne/ Perth. Great places to soak up some sun in the middle of our winter.

Book amazing hotels, apartments for the family and get away from the cold.

Car hire is pretty cheap and this gives you flexibility every day to travel around Australia and visit amazing places.

Travel post Covid 19? Some ideas for close by :)

With so much time on our hands due to the lock down, it may have crossed your mind, what are we going to do for our holiday this year once the Covid 19 epidemic is over?

It would seem that planning for closer destinations may be a big winner. Here are some ideas for places you may consider:

N E W Z E A L A N D

No air travel or if so short trips within the NZ BUBBLE when allowable. So here is an idea, if you live in Auckland, take the NORTHERN EXPLORER TRAIN from Auckland to Wellington. A 12 hour day trip by train with narrative on the history of the areas you travel through.
2 or 3 nights in Wellington with lots to do.
Then FERRY across the Cook Strait to Picton. Hire a car and spend a night or 2 in Blenheim, visit a WINE FARM then drive to Nelson, taste wonderful OYSTERS and onward to KAIKOURA, check out the WHALES and then to Christchurch and fly home.
OF COURSE THIS CAN BE DONE WITH A CAMPERVAN.
SKI SEASON is upon us - let book some fabulous memories for you.

A U S T R A L I A
A great family holiday. Check out the GOLD COAST, SUNSHINE COAST for family fun and sunshine.
How about hiring a car or campervan and travel the GREAT OCEAN ROAD (Melbourne Way). Travel a spectacular coastline along cliff tops and surf beaches and through lush rainforest.
Take a Cruise along the MURRAY RIVER near Adelaide, a HOUSEBOAT in the Northern Territories near Darwin.
Something for a special occasion or a bucket list, THE GHAN.. A luxury train that runs from Adelaide to Darwin or v.v.(visit a genuine opal mining town or an entire town built underground) or the INDIAN PACIFIC which runs from Perth to Melbourne.
And of course not forgetting the GREAT BARRIER REEF. Spend a night or two on a live aboard dive boat.
CLIMB the Sydney bridge, hire a bicycle and cycle along the Sydney waterfront.
AND LOTS, LOTS MORE

P A C I F I C I S L A N D S
Not sure when this will happen but perhaps for December things my improve and we can start taking advantage of some really good specials on airfares and accommodation. Fiji, Raro, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, Tahiti, New Caledonia.
There may even be an opportunity to take a cruise to the islands from Auckland or across the Tasman and take in a bit of Oz (see above).

So all in all if you want to travel a lot can be organised even if we stay local.

Maybe give me some ideas of where you would like to go and what you would like to do. Share your ideas.
