What is a good price for a one-way ticket from Auckland to London - why does it cost so much more to add time in a stopover country?
Does anybody have any recommendations for stopovers?
Why does it cost so much more to have a stopover in a country/city that a flight stops in anyway? One-way flights that stop for passengers to get a connecting flight are approx $1300 NZD - but if you want to stay for a week in the stopover country (a "multi-city" ticket), the price escalates to approx $1900 NZD on the online search engines I've used. Any hints/advice? I want to make the most of this long flight by stopping somewhere en route - anything from a week up to a month - Bangkok has been recommended but I'm not sure about Thailand. Any other recommendations?
I'm going to Auckland from London and stop for 5 days in Vancouver. The price I've get is 1.200€ round trip. It was a little bit more expensive to make the stopover than only the flight connection, but I thought it is worth to expend 200€ extra and visit another place and make a stop in such a long travel: 9 hours from London to Vancouver + 14 hours from Vancouver to Auckland... almost 5 years agoAnswered by Xicout via WorldNomads.com
It might work out cheaper to just buy 2 seperate flights. The cheapest one way option from New Zealand to London is on Air Asia (but the only fly from Christchurch) via Kuala Lumpur. You can get 2 seperate flights for under NZD 1000 if you go for a promo fare and stay in KL for as long as you like. almost 5 years ago
