Calgary to Rarotonga, Cook Islands - $702 CAD roundtrip including taxes | new record!

The Cook Islands

Air New Zealand has dropped the price of their flights from Calgary to Rarotonga, Cook Islands in the south Pacific down to $702 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is over 50% below the typical bottom price from Calgary to the Cook Islands. Most will end up paying $1500-$1600 for this flight.

Part of this price drop is due to the Cyber Monday sale from Air New Zealand...

You can take advantage of this sale in conjunction with a booking promotion from Flight Centre, to achieve a really amazing price.

How to find and book these flights

1. Flight Centre is offering a promotion for $100 off of all international flights from Calgary, provided that the flight is a minimum of $750 CAD roundtrip.

There are no blackout dates.

The Flight Centre promotion expires on November 30, 2016.

Update - I've just realized that Flight Centre's calendar interface doesn't go past October 25th, 2017

You can still find the late Oct and Nov 2017 flights in their system though. I've provided some direct search links below. And if you call them, they should still be able to book the dates in late October and the first part of November and give the additional $100 discount.

Flight Centre, direct search links:

Oct 28 to Nov 10
