Getting to New Zealand can be a lengthy (and costly affair) — and even more so if you aren’t redeeming points for these flights.

However, Delta Air Lines is offering round-trip fares to Auckland (AKL) from just $895 in economy, meaning a trip to New Zealand doesn’t have to break the bank after all.

Here’s what you need to know to score this bargain to New Zealand.

Fare Deal — Details

These low fares to Auckland are available from Los Angeles (nonstop) and New York (via Los Angeles). As a bonus, you’ll even get 1 checked bag included with your fare!

If you weren’t already tempted enough, these fares are widely available throughout New Zealand’s summer while it’s winter in the U.S.

  • Class: Economy
  • Routes: Los Angeles (LAX), and New York (JFK) (via Los Angeles) to Auckland (AKL)
  • Dates: November 2023 through March 2024
  • Rates: From $895

The cheapest fares are from LA, which makes sense as it’s closer to New Zealand:

And from New York, you’ll have to shell out a few hundred dollars more, which, in the grand scheme of things, really isn’t that much considering it also includes a transcontinental flight.

Best Ways To Book

When booking a cash ticket, it’s always a good idea to use a travel credit card that will reward you for booking flights.

For Delta flights, there are a bunch of credit cards, including co-branded Delta cards, that would earn you bonus points for your Delta flight purchases.

You could also consider a card like The Platinum Card® from American Express, which earns 5x Membership Rewards points on flights booked directly with the airline or through (capped at $500,000 spent in purchases per calendar year, then 1x points).

Hot Tip:

Booking through an online travel agency (OTA) such as Kayak or Expedia can potentially save you a few dollars, which can seem appealing at the time of booking. However, it’s worth remembering that if you need to make changes or cancellations, the headache that can often come with dealing with an OTA can make the money you saved seem insignificant.

Final Thoughts

Spending some time exploring New Zealand this coming winter couldn’t be more tempting thanks to Delta’s very reasonable round-trip fares from Los Angeles and New York.
