The pandemic has brought travel plans to an endless halt. Although countries have reopened to tourists, the fear still prevails. However, airlines are leaving no stone unturned in luring travelers back. Air New Zealand has launched ‘Mystery Breaks’ in which travelers won’t know where they are headed. The initiative is an effort to boost the island nation’s tourism industry by encouraging more domestic travel.
Meanwhile, if you’re Travelling Solo Here’s How To Pick The Right Destination.
Air New Zealand’s Mystery Break Starts From $398 Per Person
Travellers can book a two night stay starting at $398 per person. Travellers will have no idea where they will travel, but can pick one destination they would like to avoid. The airline provides Mystery trips to any of the 20 destinations across the airline’s domestic network.
The places in the list include Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington. In addition, famous tourist spots like Taupo and Invercargill, are also on the list. “As your destination is a mystery, you cannot specify where you want to go. However, you can advise one destination you do not want to travel to and, subject to availability, we will endeavour to accommodate your request,” mentions the airline’s website.

Passengers can pick the date they want to travel and also opt for “Great”, “Deluxe” or “Luxury” packages. The prices reach up to NZ$2,399 per person for a three-night trip over a weekend. The package also specifies the type of hotel offered by the airline. Guests can pick a three or four-star Accor hotel stay or opt for more expensive options that include five-star stays with breakfast and dinner. Lastly, you can opt to explore the place in a Deluxe and a Luxury car. The packages are limited, so its better you book six weeks before you intend to fly.
Previously, Air New Zealand offered Mystery Break packages for corporate travellers. New Zealand has managed to control Covid and has also prohibited entry for travellers from other countries.
