Flight Centre is offering return flights to New Zealand for £549 for sports fans travelling to the city for the Rugby World Cup this September.

The sale of more than 200 seats will last for 48 hours – or until all seats have sold out, beginning on Wednesday July 27 at 10am.

Highlighting the deal, David Forder, Head of Marketing, Flight Centre Brand says, “Our Flash Sale this week offers a not-to-be-missed opportunity for fans of the game as well as regular holiday makers who wish to experience the magnificent natural beauty that New Zealand has to offer.”

“At £549, Flight Centre makes New Zealand an affordable choice for a late summer holiday, and can even be considered as an alternative to more regular destinations   including Dubai, the USA or even Europe! For around a hundred pounds or so more you could now embark on that dream holiday”, adds Forder.

Flights to New Zealand during the Rugby World Cup season are currently available at more than £1000. The Flight Centre Flash Sale offer is almost 50 per cent cheaper than that price. In addition, fares to international destinations closer to home such as Dubai and New York are on average between £350 – £450, and last minute flights to Europe can cost up to £400.
