A Chara,

Im off to Oz for a year from May '05, it would be nice to get back to the UK for Christmas '05 for a few weeks or so, do many people do this, whats the best way and what would i expect to pay for flights from Oz to UK in December?

How can you resist the idea of surfing and having a barby on Christmas day!
Invite your relatives to join you!
Flight prices will be the same or dearer I expect - December is the height of summer in Oz!

As you can see price rises considerably during the December period.
Sometimes a RTW can work out cheaper during the silly season.
I agree with stevieh.
Get the family to come on down.:)
