Odyssey Sept-Oct 2018

Looking forward to this trip since I was in high school! Leaving from Philadelphia. Anyone making their own travel plans from East Coast?
  • HI Sarah we may be making our own plans from NYC. We haven't heard yet from RS about their flights, and just sent them an email. We need a custom flight as we want to arrive a day or two before to get over the jet lag, and we're going to Fiji after the tour. have you heard from them about flights? interested to see their prices

    I've been researching flights myself - I was told it's about $1500 from LAX with RS.
    I've found about $1426 on Cathy Pacific thru Priceline from Newark.

    Hi Sarah we made our own plans using Delta and Chase Sapphire points so we're really happy! Flying Delta to LAX and Fiji Air to Auckland. We're arriving in Auckland on 9/27, two days early.

    I've heard that Fiji Air is a great way to go...and you get to stop in Fiji! I'm still looking. Hope to book this coming week, also looking to arrive early.

    I sent an email to RS asking about hotel rates pre-tour at the Auckland hotel. I haven't really done any research as we have two other trips before this one. I would like to speak with someone re practical things such as laundry facilities for such a long trip.

    I'm also arriving a day early, and want to stay at the same hotel Mercure in Auckland. I got rates from the RS travel service - $145 USD for 2 beds, $112 USD for a single queen.

    Is anyone traveling single and arriving early and want to share a room?
