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

    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! :-)
