Hi all —

I’m a student planning to go from Winnipeg to Wellington (May 10th/12th to June 23th/25th). I could also fly out of Toronto or Vancouver. I’m having little success in finding fares on the internet, though!

TravelCuts quoted me roughly $2200 CAD; Herman’s site showed Toronto-Auckland for $1699 or Vancouver-Auckland for $1399, but those fares are only valid to the end of April. Canada 3000 didn’t show any available dates. I checked Air New Zealand’s site and found flights but no prices. Checked tiss.com, but couldn’t find a combination of dates and destinations that produced any results. Cheaptickets.com showed fares ranging from $1317-$1489US but had no itineraries available. I’ve emailed a few of these sites for more information but haven’t heard back yet.

Should I just go with TravelCuts? It would at least take me right from Winnipeg, but it sounds somewhat expensive to me. I don’t have any previous experience with this, though, so I don’t really know. What, generally, is the latest that you can book tickets? I think I’ve left this rather late. Thanks for any advice you might have!

BTW, I think this forum is great—very helpful!
