there is no cheap way to fly to the other side of the world... why you wanna cheap out on a 20hr+ flight anyways??

i flew with Cathay Pacific. cost me bout 500 pounds to get to Auckland. one way.

But not fosters. Cause thats not Australian, even though it says it is. Bastards.
Fosters is from Melbourne...

Anyone been or know of any tips. Direct flights are absolute murder, sure there must be a cheaper way, just can't find it. Any help appreciated cheers
you need to use a website like bestflights.com.au or webjet.com (i think these are australian websites, i dont know what the UK equivalent sites are). just perform a search and it will bring up all of the available flights and prices. you will find that it will be cheaper if you have more stops along the way.

i also suggest that you get in contact with a travel agent and ask them to advise you when airlines are having sales. you can save lots of money this way. I managed to get return tickets to London from Aus for only $600 (i think thats about 350 pounds) when singapore airlines was having a sale.

and the last thing you need to be aware of is when the 'peak' and 'off-peak' periods start and end (these are usually roughly based on seasons- summer/winter and special events xmas/easter). if you perform an internet search for flights on a particular date and it just so happens to be during peak time, it will cost you sooo much more. whereas, if you leave a bit earlier or later, you could save hundreds. Speak to a travel agent and they will be able to advise you when the 'off peak' dates are. flying during 'off-peak' season is much cheaper.


hope that helps (y)

also it might be cheaper to fly into perth rather than somewhere like sydney cos its closer :) but i guess it depends on where you actually want to go.
