2017 Mediterranean Cruise Holidays
For Travellers with Uncompromising Standards
As a young couple wanting an adventurous holiday Richard has been fantastic in organising our trip and taking away the hassle of our now fully booked climb to Base Camp, Mt Everest. He managed to get us great airfares on reliable airlines that suited our timetable perfectly. We now like to book our trips through Richard Fletcher from Fine Travel.
Pleased to report a very enjoyable trip, and we were happy with the China Southern flights.
The flights to Europe were very comfortable, not quite up to AirNZ standard but we would certainly recommend CS to anyone wanting business class at a good price.
The return flight from Paris to Guangzhou was outstanding. Most comfortable business class seats we’ve had on any airline (including AirNZ) and excellent food and service. The plane was a very recent Boeing 777. Guangzhou to Auckland was the same as Auckland to Guangzhou.
Hope this information is useful, and many thanks again for your work on our bookings.
Many, many thanks for all that you did to make our trip a most memorable one….the breakaway was awesome and most memorable and time with family in France was so very special. Also Kirstys mum kept in good health whist we were away and required no immediate change of plans and frantic trip back to Auckland. It was just brilliant I will certainly highly recommend your services. Lufthansa premium economy is highly recommended and the service very German and very efficient. Better than AirNZ despite my Gold Elite status. Please use our reference above if required.
Thanks so very much
Mark and Kirsty

Although our Air New Zealand Business Class specials offer excellent value in comparison to the full retail price, there are other ways to fly in "Business Premier" to Europe or the USA on our national carrier for even less.
Through Fine Travel's relationship with specialist travel wholesale partner World Journeys, we are pleased to share with you an insight into their travel experiences, and the expertise we can draw on when planning your holidays. With increased airline competition on routes between New Zealand and North America Fine Travel is seeing more frequent Business Class discounts, setting up our clients for memorable holidays.
With the Earlybird season for 2018 Business Class Specials to Europe approaching quickly, Cathay Pacific's discounted airfares are eagerly anticipated. Cathay Pacific has previously also released "add-ons" with its specials that appeal to the traveller looking for flexibility in the choice of routes and side trips.
With 2017 disappearing at an alarming rate, we are already seeing a lot of interest in 2018 Business Class Specials to Europe. Although planning ahead is a good idea, based on our past experience the best specials for 2018 travel to Europe are yet to come.
With so much to see and such geographic and cultural diversity, a South African holiday is best planned with the benefit of local knowledge and expertise. Fine Travel, in association with our specialist wholesale partner World Journeys, provide an overview of a leading South African itinerary taking in Cape Town, a Kruger National Park safari and Victoria Falls.
Fine Travel Consultant Kylie Bryers recently enjoyed her first river cruise with a two week European river cruise with luxury cruise line Scenic Tours. She reports back with her experience.
With China Airlines offering competitive Business Class airfares from New Zealand to Europe via Taiwan, Fine Travel Consultant Irene Field took the opportunity to experience China Airlines' Business Class and Economy Class to Taiwan.
In our blog post about how we expected the 2017 Earlybird Business Class and Premium Economy Specials to Europe to unfold, we explained that the start of the Earlybird season generally marks a reset of discounts to the lowest levels. From there, we predicted that as the specials expired we would see a gradual increase in prices as we got closer to peak travel times. This has played out as expected with prices increasing - and there have been interesting developments along the way.
When holiday time is precious, retracing your steps to connect with a flight home can feel a waste of valuable time. For many Fine Travel clients who take advantage of Business Class Specials to fly from New Zealand to Europe to spend time with family, a return flight from Heathrow makes good sense. But often European travel becomes much more than this.
The Cunard Line trans-Atlantic cruise is one of the quintessential cruise holidays. Crossing the Atlantic from Southampton to New York (or the reverse) is a bucket list experience.
