Budget travel's best-kept secret
Bundling may be the best-kept secret of holidaymakers of a budget.
Booking flights and accommodation together could save travellers about $200 - $400 for holidays to places such as the Cook Islands, New York, Fiji and Bali.
However, a study commissioned by travel website Expedia found less than a quarter of the 1008 New Zealanders surveyed online took advantage of bundled holiday deals.
Those aged between 25-34 years old were least likely to take advantage of the deals, whereas 50 per cent of bundle deals were purchased by those aged 45-65 years old.
Expedia's Louise Crompton said she was more surprised New Zealand travellers were not buying holiday bundles.
"With the bulk of Kiwis' holiday budget going to flights and accommodation, having some extra cash to put towards dining out, a shopping spree or trying a new activity is a big bonus", said Crompton.
