SOMV has indicated that this thread is about Australia

Hi,

We've just heard about an offer by STA of £10 return tickets (no tax to pay and flying with Qantas) available to UK residents. Link to STA.

Cheers :)

This is supposedly true and they go on sale August 5th for Brits who have a WHV.

just found this on watoday.com.au

In an offer almost too good to be true, British travellers will soon be able to fly to Australia for less than the price of a guidebook.
In a take on the term "10 pound Pom" - originally coined to describe British citizens who migrated to Australia after World War II - the scheme will allow Brits to travel Down Under for just STG10 ($A20.42).
The move to boost the tourism industry will see 150 Qantas tickets to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane or Adelaide available for anyone with a valid Working Holiday Visa.
Travellers will be able to return home whenever they wish.
The limited tickets will be available from STA Travel outlets across the UK on August 5 on a first-come, first-served basis.
The fare is available for departures between August 15 and September 30 and November 1 to 30.
Would-be travellers are being encouraged to camp out for the tax-inclusive tickets, which are expected to be snapped up within hours.

Be careful though, I might flag it as spam

FWIW, I flagged the original post because it was promoting a blog rather than giving the actual information about this deal or linking to the original source. (Moreover, the blog wasn't by a disinterested party, but by a party which arranges visas, complete with "contact us to see if you can apply".)

True enough. Apologies. I was intending to spam, I was just being lazy.

Aha, ok, I see, that changes things;) Sorry for my early conclusions.
Still, thanks for the link as well SOMV, now it will probably be sold within minutes instead of hours

Added the link to STA to original post now. Pretty cool deal, if you're a "Pom" :)
