Two Trips for $1,475 in tickets to Australia and New Zealand

New Zealand vacation Oct 1-16, 2016

Australia vacation Feb 4-16, 2016

The two tickets above give you one trip Los Angeles to New Zealand (Oct 1-16) and one trip Los Angeles to Sydney Feb 4-16. These are random travel dates I picked. There is wide open availability of low fare dates for both American and Air New Zealand tickets for this two trip itinerary.

This is quite a deal. As someone who has visited Australia and New Zealand, one vacation only in each country, I think this is a deal to seriously consider. Does not work for our travel plans, but hopefully you can benefit from this over the top ‘down under’ travel deal.
