nah has indicated that this thread is about Australia

I can only manage to get away for 4 weeks at the end of the year and need any pointers as to where to get the cheapest flight. I was expecting about £900 to £1000 but it seems to be nearer £1300. If that's what it is then I'll just have to grin and bear it. Any comments appreciated.

Hi sweet.
Just to let you know I booked my flight last week (now dreading it!) and I paid £849, that's flying into Cairns Sept 27th and out of Melbourne 18th Dec. I'd suggest either ringing a company like Travel Nation that can get a quote for you or looking on the british airways site.
Hope this helps.

December is a very expensive time to fly to Australia - Christmas/New Year/Summer period!

In the UK, a few places you could check out if you haven't already are:

Austravel
Travelbag
STA Travel

Also remember to check airline websites directly, as they do sometimes have deals on - I last flew London-Sydney (in April/May) return for £330!! Virgin Atlantic were offering that the day after England won the ashes last year!

Some airlines that fly that route are:

Virgin Atlantic
British Airways
Qantas
Singapore Airlines
Japan Airlines
Air New Zealand

And a whole load more!
