NZ AIRPORT DESTINATION TAX
So guys ive been reading my Lonely Planet guide to NZ.
It said that there is a destination tax of $25 for adults for leaving NZ (except Auckland) upon boarding the flight...its not included in the flight ticket price. Is this true?
Curious. advice fellow NZ travellers and Contiki travellers. Thx

but unless theyve changed it now
yes it is true my travel agent told me to make sure i have the 25 dollars on me
I flew out of Christchurch last july and didn’t have to pay the departure tax. It is now included in your plane ticket. Here is link for you http://www.christchurchairport.co.nz/AboutUs/MediaCentre/article-1828/final-day-for-25-departure-fee-marks-the-start-of-new-era/
okay you sure?
THANK YOU :) so its included in the plane ticket
Hey AussieExplorer2012, what airline are you flying on? Of the ones I have been on out of New Zealand (Air New Zealand and Emirates) they included mine on the price of the ticket, so I see no reason why this would not be the case with other airlines, best to double check though just call your airline. Have an awesome trip! :-)
emirates im flying with them
thank you :)
