The Australian's are coming to get you !
Bankstown Sports Under 12's,14's & 16's are heading to Auckland New Zealand from Saturday 15th January 2005 to Sunday 23rd January 2005.
The club has been to New Zealand onsix trips before & New Zealand has been to our shores on five tours.This trip will have us playing against an American Samoa side & a number of local club sides from the Bayside/Westhaven & Howard Pacaranga clubs.
The games are always played in a friendly sporting manner but with the Trans-Tasman rivalry always there.
The fare for any person 12 years of age & over will be approximately $600.
This includes all taxes to leave Australia but not any New Zealand taxes ($25) to return.
The fare for any person under 12 years of age at the time of departure will be approximately $530.If any infants are going & don't require a seat,the cost will be approximately $75.
The club advises strongly that all players & family take out Travel Insurance.The cost for the week away would be around $85 for a single & $160 for a family.All travelers must have a valid passport.(please check what requirements are for foreign passport owners)
The players are all billeted out with players from the New Zealand sides. Parents & friends will be in motel style accomodation (prices soon).
If you intend to go, we need to know ASAP. A non refundable deposit will soon be required.
If you plan to stay longer to have a holiday in "The Land of the Long White Cloud", let us know ASAP.We can usually help with costings.
I hope this will give you an idea of the costs etc to go to New Zealand
