I'm going to Australia next january with my girlfriend and our daughter (6 years old). We live in Norway.
I found that the cheapest flights to Australia is by flying with KLM, or British Airways.

The thing is, we want to make a stopover in Kuala Lumpur on our way to Sydney. I think there is a rule that you are allowed to stay in a city up to 24 hours, without paying more for it. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks!

You should check with the airline or the travel agent you booked through.

Depending on the type of ticket you have, you might be able to extend your stay in KL very cheaply. It could be that you only pay the tax.

I had a stop-over in Singapore going from NZ to India, and it only cost me the airport tax to extend it, and I finally flew on to India over a month later!

I would think only the airport tax. The airline doesn't normally charge any extra (at least not in my experience). Time shouldn't make any difference, not unless you're planning on being in Bangkok for months and months.

Ask your travel agent - they always have the most specific information when it comes to these things.
