Is Fine Travel more expensive than other full service travel agencies?
No, we operate in a very competitive marketplace and differentiate ourselves by the high quality of service we provide. We use our knowledge, experience, and the buying power of New Zealand’s biggest travel groups to deliver exceptional service at a competitive price.
Do you charge fees?
Yes. As many airlines and hotels no longer pay agency commissions, the value a travel agent adds is recognised through fees. Our professional fees will be advised at the time of quotation.

Yes, we accept all major credit cards for transactions. However, on some transactions, we will have a cash price for cheques, cash and EFTPOS, and a retail price for other forms of payment.
Do you have access to all the specials that are advertised?
Yes, we have access to virtually every special that is made available by all airlines or travel wholesalers to New Zealand travel agents. When you work with us you know you’re getting the best possible deal in the market.
Can I use my frequent flyer points?
