flights to the uk?
We are not even in oz yet and my sister in law decided last night that she's coming out next august for 4/5 weeks.
We looked at flights and its nearly £4000 for the 3 of them, her and 12 year old and 13 year old.
When would be the best time to book them and from the uk or oz websites?
Do you get good deals in January like here with january sales?
That does seem a lot for 3 people booking a return flight from the UK
I'm afraid flights in general are more expensive if booked from here. An example last February my aunt booked a three week return flight from UK to Adelaide and paid GBP450 for one person. I booked a return flight to the UK in May and paid $3000 for one person economy class
best place is try singapore web site i always seen good deals on there but i always fly business cant go eco just to dame cramped
Hi Vikkiann, try Cathay Pacific they are based in Hong Kong so you would fly to Aus via Hong Kong we have used them and they are great, service excellent and the facilities at Hong Kong are the best. Don't forget that our seasons are opposite to u.k. so to fly in here in January is High Season, also hottest time of the year. Look for flights off season, If you want Summer weather, say end of Feb through to just before Easter, look out for specials with all the airlines, especially now with the global credit crisis I suspect airlines will start to lose business and will be offering good deals to fill their seats, booking on line is usually cheaper, more spending money though sterling to the Aussie dollar should be quite healthy.

Reason: fat fingers
Travelmood are good or going to the airline website.
Flights from UK/Aus return should be bought and paid for there as it is too expensive the other way round. However if you want to go back to the UK at a later date, you'll have to buy your tickets in Aus adn can't have them sent to you here but buy them in the UK.
When looking at the price of tickets it is cheaper in April and October. In July it is UK summer and everyone wants to go away and in Dec it is Aus summer and everyone wants to get away. OR people who live somewhere cold are coming on holiday so the prices get bumped up.
I am sure there are some airlines who offer discounts. However, when speaking to an airline they suggested this was a gamble. Flights are overbooked anyway as a standard because someone always doesn't show up. Most discounts are offered for early bookers. We have just got back from the UK and paid for our tickets early Feb, and saved more than $700 by booking directly with the airline and so far in advance. Our children are 12 and 15 so we pay adult fares for them.
