Deal for Aucklanders to get to the Nelson game https://grabaseat.co.nz/secure/getawayDetail?offer...
Includes Wellington and Christchurch deals too https://grabaseat.co.nz/secure/getaways?utm_source...
typical just a couple of days after I booked my flights! - although costs look similar
Those that don't know Nelson may want to be aware that the Beachcomber Inn is in Tahunanui about 5-10 minute drive (and about 40-50 minute walk) from town center where the game is.
On the upside there are a couple of good pubs (Sprig & Fern, Bel Aire) and a few restaurants there

Got my flights ages ago, when only thing I haven't done is book accomodation.
Damm you have to book for two people at a time. Sigh.
There are some pretty cheap flights to Perth there too. Will make that trip one day.
Heads up, Jetstar's current $29 flight sale covers 4th March for the game against Perth at Albany.
Curses must have missed it. It says 49 each way now
Unlucky. I should have posted it somewhere that would have been more noticed. I ended up booking to go Saturday morning, and back Monday night (as it was $49 to return Sunday night) but then my manager refused the day of leave for the Monday as first week of March is our busy time. My own fault really, as I should have realised that but thought 1 day would be ok as it wasn't like I was going for the whole week. Thought I'd probably have to scrap it but sent Jetstar a message over Facebook asking if it was possibly to change to the $49 Sunday night flight and they replied saying they have changed me and will waive the change fee as a gesture of goodwill and I only need to pay the $20 difference (well, $40 since there's 2 of us).
So they may get a bad wrap a lot of the time but thumbs up to Jetstar for this one, helping me out when it was not their fault.
Jetstar also currently has a sale to get the return flight for free. For the game at Albany on 4th March you can currently get Wellington-Auckland for $45 on the day, and the return for free on the Monday (if you can have that day off work).
