I am Jo, 31 yrs old and planning to go to Oz (Sydney) end of Feb 2012 - I am looking for a travel buddy but also some advise on where to buy the best priced flight - I want to get an open ended ticket?!
Any advise or if you are looking for a travel partner please get in touch
It's a matter of looking at internet budget flight sites and maybe phoning around (The Daily Mail for Saturday or Sunday have a good travel section with lots of phone numbers).
You need to book ASAP as cheap flights are going already.
For best prices, book around mid-week. Be flexible. Accept a flight which is not direct (spending a few hours in an airport somewhere on the way there and back can save quite a bit of money). One year I went Air France where they used a cheap flight to France to catch it which avoided heavy UK taxes for travelling long haul.
Consider stopping off somewhere on the way for a break (it's a LONG flight to Australia) and maybe a bit of sightseeing. Maybe Bangkok on the way back. It's a fantastic shopping centre but you don't want to carry everything to Australia and bring it back again.
I'm 30, turning 31 in march
I'm arriving in australia, melbourne on the 2nd of march 2012.
I like to travel the great ocean road from melbourne to adelaide, with out the tour operators. Maybe you like to share a campervan with me for a week?
www.webjet.com.au, it compares all prices from all Aussie airlines.
