New Zealand Holiday

From gigantic glaciers to boiling hot springs, snow-capped mountain peaks to hidden underground caves and sandy beaches to native forests, there’s no shortage of wondrous things to explore on your trip to New Zealand.

New Zealand Hotel + Flights

While there are 11901 hotels starting at £58 a night on offer here, you’re likely to get more bang for your buck if you bundle your hotel and flight bookings. With Expedia’s New Zealand Holiday Packages you can also include experiences and car rental. If you’ve set your sights on checking out some of New Zealand’s spectacular natural wonders like Milford Sound, why not add a guided tour to your hotel and flight package?


Your New Zealand Holiday Itinerary

  • Day 1-2: Auckland Airport is located on the North Island and is often the first port of call for travellers. After you’ve settled into your hotel room, head straight to the Sky Tower. This icon is 328 metres tall and offers dazzling panoramic views of the city.

  • Day 3-4: For more unique urban adventures, head south to the national capital, Wellington. A little over an hour away by plane, this compact city is the political and cultural hub of the country. Pay a visit to Parliament House to learn all about the region’s history and parliamentary processes.

  • Day 5-7: You can’t spend time in New Zealand without exploring the beautiful South Island as well. For the ultimate scenic day trip, grab the keys to a rental car and make your way from Wellington to Christchurch. Switch off the engine and enjoy beautiful views from the ferry across Cook Strait, then cruise down the stunning south coast.

New Zealand Information

  • Join thousands of party-goers at the Pasifika Festival. Held annually, this weekend-long event is the largest of its kind in the world and celebrates the Pacific region’s cultures through powerful performances and mouthwatering food.

  • Spending most of your time in New Zealand’s cool little capital? Be sure to check out our Wellington Holiday Packages.

  • Browse our All Inclusive Resorts in New Zealand for a truly stress-free holiday.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in New Zealand?

A: Get a rental car and travel about like a local, not a tourist. Jump into the driver's seat and discover everything that Auckland and Wellington have to offer, from major attractions to off-the-beaten-path gems. Your own set of wheels is also a must if your plan is to road trip around the region of New Zealand or farther afield. Cheap Car Hire in New Zealand? We can help.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to New Zealand?

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to New Zealand?

A: Some of the most readily available types of accommodation in New Zealand include motels, private holiday homes and bed & breakfasts. You might also like to choose one of the apartments. You'll find all of these property types when you book with Expedia.

Q: What does a New Zealand holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Experiences and activities close by? Check. Airfares? Yes. A snazzy set of wheels? Of course. And after a big day of travelling, you'll be eager for a cosy room to unwind. We've got it all covered. Lock in what you need and get ready for a memorable New Zealand getaway.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to New Zealand?

A: The simplest way to save dollars is to bundle your bookings with the help of Expedia. Flights, Hotels and Car Rentals can all be quickly combined into a neat little holiday package — and by doing this, you'll save some time as well. Keep this in mind before you book.

Q: What are the best things to do in New Zealand?

A: Sky Tower, University of Auckland and Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World — if Auckland is on your itinerary, be sure to check out these renowned attractions. We promise you won't regret it.

Wellington is another popular place with plenty to keep you busy. Be sure to visit Te Papa (Museum of New Zealand), Westpac Stadium and Courtenay Place while you're in town.

Yet another exciting city with plenty on offer is Christchurch. Don't forget to see New Brighton Beach, Mona Vale and Lyttelton Harbour.

              Good sized room 619 for the 2 of us and good cleanliness. Nice view out to the hills. Quiet with the double glazing. The only negative was the Aircon was a bit annoying 'kicking' the fan in/out loudly at random times.
