Prepare to fall in love – France is just that sort of place. It makes no difference if you've got your sights set on the monuments of romantic Paris, the snow-capped French Alps, the lavender fields of Provence, or the rugged yachting bays of Brittany, this one's an undisputed chart-topper of a travel destination. Thankfully, cheap flights to France from New Zealand don't have to break the bank. There are loads of airlines competing to offer the top deals on the route, which means you could trade Auckland for Aquitaine for less than you might think. It often helps to book early, consider flying in shoulder seasons like autumn, and to throw in a stopover or two along the way.
Ski mecca extraordinaire, Chamonix huddles under Mont Blanc with its famous snow runs.
The pine-scented beaches of Poquerolles are simply to die for. Charter a yacht to find the island's secret coves, or go by bike to navigate the forests in search of your speck of Cote d'Azur sand.
Ah, Paris – the city of romance, of love, of art and culture. Don't miss a weekend here, between the Louvre, Montmartre, and the Eiffel Tower.
