All Australians flying Air New Zealand to Rarotonga, Cook Islands, over the next six months will be given NZ$100 to spend on their holiday, no strings attached.
CITC’s $100 Cooks Cash promotion is valid for all new bookings from 6 December 2012 to 4 March 2013 and applies to travel from 6 December 2012 right through summer and autumn to 3 June 2013.
All members of a travelling party, except infants, will receive a Westpac Visa Debit Card credited with $100; so a family of four would receive a substantial $400 spending money to enjoy between them.
The $100 credit can be widely redeemed throughout the islands at vendors with a Westpac Eftpos terminal. These are found at a wide range of visitor attractions and services, including restaurants, hotels, rental car companies and tour operators.
Once you’ve made a booking, simply register with your Air New Zealand ticket number(s) and accommodation name at www.cookislands.travel/AusCooksCash.
On arrival in the Cooks, present your photo ID at the Cook Islands Visitor Information Centre in the Avarua town centre to collect your card and then start spending. And saving!
