Holidays are over

The beginning of February heralded the start of the new school term with almost everyone going back to work. The holidays lounging at the beach or hiking in the mountains are over and what better way to ease yourself back into the work routine by starting to plan your winter getaway?!

Economy in favour of traveling

Looking at the local business news might make one depressed about the kiwi dollar’s behaviour on the international market. But for those planning an overseas holiday it is great news. With the current rate it is cheaper to go to the northern hemisphere than it has been for quite some time. Add to that the falling oil price and some drops in ticket prices on top of the favourable exchange rate and suddenly going to Europe is not such an impossible feat to plan.Allgaeuer_Alpen_Panorama_1

Early birds benefit

One aspect hasn’t changed, the earlier one books the flights the bigger the savings. A survey found the biggest savings for international flights were achieved around 200 days in advance. That’s roughly six to seven months! Time to get surfing on the internet. A range of online search engines like Expedia and skyscanner for example can give you a good idea of what’s available at the moment. Or check out the airlines directly.

Germany beckons

906__140619_0007214_loNew Zealand is very attractive to German expats and as they come and make it their new home, they bring their food culture with them. Nowadays you’ll be able to taste some of the traditional foods at farmers markets and supermarkets. Not to mention the range of beers and cakes. But one thing you won’t be able to get a taste of at the supermarket is the land- and cityscapes of Germany. The unique combination of millennia old history and modern lifestyle needs to be experienced in person to be believed. Why don’t you browse through our blog and get an inkling what it would be like in real life.
