Far from being left out in the rush of special offers to Europe, the Far East and South Pacific are also spinning out special programs.
Honolulu-based Royal Road Mutual Holidays offers five free nights at a quintet of Hyatt hotels if you buy a pair of round-trip air tickets from Honolulu for $896 to Auckland or $996 to Sydney, per person, aboard Air New Zealand or Continental Airlines. Flights are available from Los Angeles or San Francisco. The hotel rooms are on the basis of two people traveling together.
The vouchers for the five free nights are worth up to $450, according to the tour operator. The five hotels are the Hyatt Kingsgates in Auckland, Rotorua and Queenstown in New Zealand; the Hyatt Kingsgate in Sydney, and the Hyatt Regency in Fiji.
You have to set up the hotel nights prior to departure from the U.S. However, the hotel nights don't have to be on a consecutive basis. You get a voucher for each hotel night, valid for that date only. These are not open vouchers, so changes are not likely to be accommodated. The vouchers must be used by Sept. 30.
