Low US$ great for NZ schools

The New Zealand dollar is almost at a 10 year high US dollar. This means International school trips for NZ schools are going to be more economical with more students able to afford overseas travel.

As New Zealanders can now buy more with their money in the United States, they are also going to become more likely to travel to the United States to do so. And as the demand for flights rises, airfares will also become cheaper.

One New Zealand dollar would buy just 50 cents in 2009. Ten years ago one New Zealand dollar was equal to just 40 cents! So it is no wonder people are taking advantage and heading to America.

Right now is the perfect time for New Zealand Teachers to lead an overseas school trip to the United States. Teachers will find it easier getting the numbers for a school tour with increased students interest due to more affordable travel.
