Notes:

  • Some travel companies, such as FlightCentre, are able to match or beat the prices quoted by their competitors so be sure to ask them for a competitive fare
  • Make sure that before comparing the prices the quotes include all the taxes/surcharges/fees
  • Booking sites often charge a fee for the service, for instance
  • Ensure that the quotes you receive are ‘flexible’ (i.e. they provide an option to alter the travelling dates once the tickets are purchased)
  • Remember to convert all prices to Australian dollars when comparing quotes
  • Avoid Paper tickets – they are hard to change. Go for E-tickets
