im going to start looking for flights tomorrow (how scarey/exciting is this !!!) and Ive found a couple of companies that Im going to try...anyone with any reccomendations on who I should try for the best price?!
any help would be great...
Which companies have you already found?
I searched and searched high and low for flights, i ended up booking through ebookers-it was easy enough online, it's an e-ticket, i got my return flight (direct i might add) from London to Sydney plus my insurance for only £782!!!
I am flying with Quantas too which is a bonus-i've heard only good things about these!
I really can't remember the website-but it checked flights from all companies-i'll try and remember, thought i had it on favouries but i obviously haven't!
These bunch are normally pretty good:
Trailfinders, Travelbag, Flight Centre, STA travel, Austravel.
My friend has got a return to Sydney for £462 from Trailfinders going in October (i think) with Qantas. Phone them rather than use the websites as you get a better idea what specials they have on.
i phoned and searched loads of places and ended up going with STA travel. the staff were very friendly and helpful, the two people i spoke to also sounded confident and experience. i would definately recommend them as some of the other companies i phoned seemed a little confused about stop overs and far away return flights. the next cheapest company i found were travelbag.
booked mine with Flight Centre. £750 for 3 flights leaving August
london - Darwin
Sydney - Bangkok
Bangkok - home
checked the others ie. trailfinders Sta etc. Flight centre was the best. in the past i have used STA there pretty good
i havent booked yet but i will probably book with STA. Have been in to ask all my daft questions and to get some advice etc and they were really helpful. They couldnt have been any better really and the guy i spoke to wasnt trying to sell me everything going either. he was pretty honest and told me the good and bad and said i could make my own mind up about insurance etc. I am going to book really soon and will def be going back to book with him!
ive heard nothing but good things about STA so far. a few friends have gone with them too and were more than pleased with their service.
anyway, i sound like im on commission!!
Have a look at WEBJET and Zuji.
