Trans-Tasman travel bubble

Last month New Zealand entered a new era of travel with the start of a Quarantine Free Travel (QFT) arrangement with Australia.  Air New Zealand has a regular schedule of “green” flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Sunshine Coast, Cairns, Hobart and Perth.

The travel professionals at helloworld are available to help you navigate this new international travel environment and ensure you book the approved QFT flights.

What does the travel bubble arrangement mean for you? For some, you have been ready to burst your bubble and can't wait to visit family and friends you haven't seen for so long. For others, you will be looking forward to planning your first overseas holiday for over a year now. Maybe even book a trip for the next school holidays?

How can we help you?
We can book flights only to Australia so that you will be able to visit family and friends. We can also help you redeem Air New Zealand credits. We can package up a holiday to the many Australian holiday spots you may want to visit that includes flights, accommodation, sightseeing, cruise, rail travel and much more.

You can book with confidence with our travel specialists who are knowledgeable of Covid travel requirements, and available 24/7 to assist if travel plans change. We are Fair Insurance Providers to ensure you have adequate cover and provide expert, personalised travel advice to help you plan your next holiday.

Is the Pacific travel bubble next?

We are preparing for the Pacific travel bubble to Islands that have been free from Covid-19. The Cook Islands has not had any reported cases since the start of the pandemic. Their economy relies heavily on tourism so they would welcome back visitors. The Cook Islands is logically the first Pacific Island to open to New Zealand visitors. In preparation we are booking accommodation from June onwards for customers who are planning a winter escape to a sunny island destination. Flights can be added following a government announcement of bubble dates. Contact our travel professionals to hold your accommodation so that you have an Island holiday to look forward to in 2021. 

Thank you for your support during the past year. We look forward to helping you plan your next New Zealand or Australian travel adventure, or a Pacific Island winter escape. Please continue to support our local business and contact our team of passionate and experienced travel professionals to book your next holiday.
