The Fine Travel Approach

As a travel agency, our approach is based on personalisation and working with a range of travel partners to plan our clients' holidays.  Fine Travel clients work with their dedicated and experienced travel consultant who is responsible for as much or as little of their travel needs as required.  The Fine Travel Team has always worked remotely so even during Lockdowns we remained available to our clients, and we work with clients throughout New Zealand.  Depending on your preference you can work with your Fine Travel Consultant by phone, email, Zoom / Skype or if proximity allows, face to face over coffee at a local cafe.

Covid-19 Travel Management

Covid-19 has escalated travel complexity to a new level.  Navigating cancelled flights, border closures, pre-testing and quarantine requirements are just some of the areas where we help our clients.

The New Zealand government has announced that MIQ will be replaced with 7 days home isolation for vaccinated New Zealanders returning from Australia (from 17 January 22) and then the rest of the world from 14 February 22.

Although we don't book MIQ spots for our clients, if you still need the MIQ system, our direct access to airline reservations systems allows us to hold international flights for up to 7 days before payment is required.  We can also provide the MIQ days of the week that align with the limited airline schedules.

This service provides our clients with greater flexibility to book their place in MIQ and then work with us on finding suitable flights, without the added pressure of researching airfares and instant payment when booking directly with the airlines. Indicative UK / Europe airfares can be found here or contact us to discuss your specific needs.

Booking Your Airfares

Air travel means different things to different travellers. Some "just want to get there", and others value arriving rested and travelling in comfort.

Regardless of where you choose to sit in the plane, Fine Travel has access to the latest airfares and special offers to include in your itinerary. For Business Class and First Class Passengers we offer our Sales Alerts to keep you up to date on the latest special offers.

If you're wondering whether it costs more to book your airfares with Fine Travel, we answer this question in our article: The cost of business class airfares booked with a travel agent.

Cruise Holidays

Although international cruise holidays are largely on-hold during the Covid-19 epidemic, avid fans of cruise holidays are looking ahead and paying deposits on 2022, 2023 and 2024 cruises.

The opportunity to join a close to home cruise holiday that explores New Zealand ports and highlights (with New Zealand passengers) is gaining momentum for the 2022/23 summer.

Whether you're just researching, or considering paying a deposit now to secure space on a popular voyage, our team is available to help.
