Fly to the Cook Islands from $495 per person return

Font Size:

A South Pacific holiday to the Cook Islands keeps becoming more appealing on price, with airlines introducing seat sales throughout the year.

Visit Rarotonga, the gateway to the Cook Islands, from $495pp return including taxes on Air New Zealand’s direct service from Sydney.

This fare price is valid for travel from 28 August to 30 October. For anyone looking at travel in the short term, this fare is also valid up until 27 March. 

The fare increases to $555 for travel from 23 July to 21 August and 5 November to 13 December, yet it’s still close to half the price of a normal direct service flight.

Air New Zealand’s direct service to the Cook Islands departs Sydney weekly on Friday evenings and returns on a Friday evening, allowing for a six-night holiday on the islands. 

Guests cross the international date line when flying to the Cook Islands, seeing them arrive on the day they leave Australia and lose a day on the return from Rarotonga.

To book flights during Air New Zealand’s sale period, which ends on 18 March, visit

Combine flights with a ground holiday package from $989 per person from Sydney, $1299 per person from Brisbane and $1299 per person from Melbourne including return airfares on the direct service, airport transfers, six nights’ accommodation at Club Raro Resort, daily tropical breakfast, wifi and use of resort gear. For bookings call Spacifica Travel on 1800 800 722.
