O and travel insurance

that's a pretty good fare!

is that one-way or return?

i got a return from gatwick to sydney for £780 with emirates (but that's for flying in september, so still a way off)

Try the flight search on Travellerspoint's home page which is done by Momondo. They've recently come out on top when compared to kayak, sidestep and farecast by Arthur Frommer/CNN/MSNBC and CBS. That's pretty impressive! Of course I'm assuming all these big news outlets basically found out about them after Travellerspoint wrote about them - it was literally within a week of us announcing we had finally found a site good enough to actually do a decent job at this that they started getting all this press

I think that probably depends on where your trip is starting out. I'm sure that the .co.uk version is very good for flights originating from the UK, but if you want to fly out of Thailand for example, Travelocity would probably not be anywhere near as good. A lot of these meta search engines (like Kayak, Sidestep, Momondo, Farecast) also search Travelocity (along with a few hundred other sites including low cost carriers), so they're guaranteed to find at least as good of a deal, if not better. I thought it was quite interesting doing a search for a flight between Oslo and Copenhagen a while ago that I found the same flight (time, airline etc.) on two different sites and the one was about 25EUR cheaper (after taxes et al). On a flight that was only 100 EUR to start with, it's a pretty big difference! :) Normally I would have looked at one of these sites (the actual airline's own homepage which was actually the more expensive of the two), but not the other site (also an airline, I assume that it's partnered with). The way flight pricing works is just nuts ...

Yes, but richie222 quoted his price in £££s, so I assume he is travelling from the UK.....

I have just tested it, and your are right about it not being as good for flying out of other countries than the uk.

I've just discovered Skyscanner and it seems very good, very user-friendly. I used to use opodo which I found pretty good but skyscanner gives more options.
