Countries around the world are cautiously trying to find the best approach in reopening their borders and lifting travel restrictions. Some are also in discussion in establishing ‘Travel Bubbles’. For many of us, we are itching to travel and have already started planning a post-lockdown getaway!
However, if there’s anything that we’ve seen these past few months, the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic is nothing if not unpredictable. As such, BudgetAir New Zealand has highlighted the flexible option that some airlines offer in the search result page that you might want to consider when booking your future travel so you can book with a peace of mind!

With our flexible option feature, you have the option to book with confidence if you need to change and re-book travel dates without any change fee from the airline.
