I'm hoping some of our Kiwi members will see this as they wake up!
In the U.S., there is a significant premium to be paid for a walk up fare at an airport, sometimes on the order of double or triple a more heavily discounted fare.
Does such a phenomenon exist in New Zealand? I'm trying to figure out if I should go ahead and book my intra-New Zealand flights well in advance, or if the flexibility gained by not doing so is worth any ticket price increases for booking last minute or walk-up.
My experience in Argentina has been that booking late (maybe not a walk-up fare, but booked 2-3 days prior) is not treated the same way as a last-minute ticket is in the U.S., so I'm wondering if NZ is more like US (no pun intended) or THEM.
Any clarification would be much appreciated!
