Air New Zealand is bringing back its “Mystery Break” travel packages where travellers pay a flat fee to book a holiday with the airline without knowing the destination until two days prior to their departure.

The airline is offering three tiers of packages – The Great, Deluxe or Luxury break. Customers can pick a date and nominate one place they would prefer not to go.

All packages include flights to one of the airline’s 20 domestic destinations, accommodation at an Accor Hotel with breakfast included, and airport transfers or a rental car from Avis.

Travellers are provided with an itinerary that reveals their destination around two days before departure.

A new Luxury package on top of the Great and Deluxe packages previously available has also been introduced, which includes flights, 5-star accommodation with breakfast and dinner included, and a luxury rental car.

Jeremy O’Brien, the airline’s general manager brand and marketing, says since Covid-19 closed international borders the airline has been looking for “even more ways” to help its customers explore New Zealand.

“We’re really excited to have refreshed Mystery Breaks – it’s part of doing our bit to boost local tourism. Previously these had been mostly purchased by corporate customers, but we’ve developed the packages further to appeal to leisure travellers.

“It takes the admin out of booking a holiday – you don’t have to research and plan all the separate elements – all you have to do is get on the plane. They are also a great gift option because you don’t need a name or a date to buy a voucher – the recipient can decide at a later date.”

Air New Zealand’s Mystery Breaks packages start from NZ$599 per person and are available to book now through the Air New Zealand website.
