Airline Reviews

Many travelers have multiple flight options for getting from here to there. Not only are there departure and arrival time options, but total length of trip, price and choice of airline.

So all things being equal, how do you decide which airline to take? Loyalty programs might make a difference to you. But if they don't check the airline reviews on Skytrax.

Luxury Travel in New Zealand

Have you always wanted to visit New Zealand but were concerned about the quality of accommodations and transportation options available?

Most travelers I have spoken to who have been to New Zealand know how easy it is to do on the cheap. There are plenty of campgrounds with cabins and even communal kitchens where you can cook your own meal. Lots of inexpensive small motels. You can grab easy group transportation.

But that type of travel is not for everyone. You may not be aware that there is a luxury travel side to New Zealand. You can go guided fishing in Taupo, play golf at the Wairakei International Golf Course, and Heli Hike the Franz Josef Glacier.

Luxury accommodations range from five star hotels, to boutique hotels, to private islands, luxury lodges and even luxury camping. Each type of accommodation is unique to itself, with its own distinct sounds, sights, personalities and tastes.

 And transportation? Why ride in a car or bus when you can fly from destination to destination and maximize the use the your vacation time.

New Zealand is no longer just for backpackers. If you are looking for exciting luxury travel, you can now find it in New Zealand.
