$100 Spending Money for Australian Holidaymakers to Cook Islands

Fly Air New Zealand to Rarotonga, Cook Islands this summer or autumn and Cook Islands Tourism will give every traveller NZ$100 to spend on their holiday.

The Cooks Cash promotion is valid for all new bookings between 18 October 2013 to 30 November 2013 on the direct flight from Sydney to Rarotonga, one way or return. It applies to travel from 14 December
2013 right through summer and autumn to 6 June 2014.

All members of a travelling party, except infants, who also book a minimum three nights' accommodation, will receive a Westpac Visa Debit Card credited with $100; so a family of four would receive a substantial $400 spending money 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, spas, rental car companies and tour operators.
Once you've made a booking, simply register no later than 4 December with your Air New Zealand ticket number(s) and accommodation name at
On arrival in the Cooks, present your photo ID and confirmation email at the Cook Islands Visitor Information Centre in the Avarua town centre to collect your debit card and then start spending. And saving!
