Travelling to Auckland between May and September will most likely get you the best fare, with the lowest prices being in the middle of winter in July and August.
We’d recommend looking at flights in May and September. While prices may be slightly higher, this falls into the shoulder season for travel so you’ll get a fair combination of low prices and decent weather. May is a great time to hire a car or van and travel around the North and South Island as there are fewer people on the road and less demand for accommodation.
