was think of booking the flights 14 Feb to 14 of March and risking it! £1050 seems a decent price

I recall Prince Harry taking a similar gamble for the last tour of Bangladesh. He ended up missing both Tests, and only catching the ODIs.

£1050 isn't an outrageous price, but it's not exceptionally cheap either. What I normally do is wait for the rush to die down and for someone to have a seat sale, which typically happens between about 6 months and 6 weeks of departure. That doesn't always happen, but it nearly always does.

Careful Harvey, the way this board is going if someone doesn't get a bargain flight during the specified period they'll be on here slagging this board and its contributors off because something that you posted in good faith as an suggestion of something that may happen didn't actually materialise as fact.

Tighten your disclaimer up old boy!!

Air NZ often do a fully flexible return for around that price anyway. So if you book this, there is nothing to lose (but watch the terms and conditions - they were a bit funny when I had to cancel my Rugby World Cup flights though in the end because I took a copy of the cancellation terms and quoted them back as saying I got a 100% refund, I was able to get the whole lot back again).

Can confirm the tests will be Dunedin Auckland and Wellington. Not sure of the dates yet will try to find that put next week. The official announcement will be in march.

What happened


I 2nd that.


Sorry have been away from forum for a while, life got busy with SL etc. I was mistaken when wrote march it was may, meant to be this week but there has been a delay. I am trying to get the dates before an initial announcement to at least let peope get a tentative booking in pre airline price hike.
I have asked about the issues with the museum stand at the basin but have been assured it has been like that for years and even if they are forced to renovate/close it only hold about 1,000 so should still have a test.
