Not all airlines jump on the Black Friday bandwagon, but sometimes Kiwi travellers can nab a cheap(er) airfare.
The trick is to be flexible with your dates, and if you can be flexible with your destination too, then you’ll have a better chance at securing a deal.
One thing that can trip up bargain-hunter travellers is booking a cheap flight, only to find accommodation at their destination at a premium, effectively cancelling out any airfare savings. So do your research, look around, (don’t forget to check the terms and conditions of the sale fares) – and you might just be winging your way to a more affordable 2024 holiday.
Qatar Airways’ Black Friday is the airline’s biggest online sales event of the year. It’s offering up to 15% off flights from Auckland to select destinations, including multiple locations around Europe, when using the promo code BF23.
The sale runs until November 28 and is available for travel between November 2023 and 31 October 2024.
