hey all.

When I go to oz if I want to stay longer how do you extend your flight date?

How much do they charge?

Hey Richie,
This will depend in what kind of ticket you have. This is a question you should ask your travel agent before you purchase a ticket. Some ticket are nonchangable, some have free date changes and some have a $100 - $500 charge to change the date. Sometime you can pay just a little bit more to get a ticket with free date changes.
If your ticket is booked in a low booking class, you may have trouble getting seats on flights last minute or during the high season.

my friend was able to email Flight Centre (who she booked through in the UK) and change her flight dates for free as many times as she wanted. When i have changed mine i have gone direct through the airline. Qantas and BA did not charge me but i believe they have now started charging. KLM and Malaysian charged me NZ$100 per date change if i remember rightly.
