Plan Your Affordable Vacation in Australia

The Great Barrier Reef, Bondi Beach, the Opera House and the Outback. There are so many natural and cultural wonders to be visited in Australia that tourism is booming for travel “down under”. If you have been planning your Australian vacation, we’ve got some great news for you.

Australia is experiencing a real growth in business, commerce and population. It is great news for travellers who have always wanted to visit Australia as there are more flights available now than ever before, and more airlines competing with pricing and willing to take you there.

Depending where you are travelling from in North America, the flight to Australia is is about twenty hours. Typically the airlines will stop in Vancouver Canada, then Japan and on to Australia. Historically the cost has hovered around $2000 or more per person and part of the reason that travellers have hesitated in the past to fly to Australia is due to the length of the flight and also because of the cost. But thanks to the increased demand for flights, it is possible to get cheap flights to Australia and book them conveniently online.

Tips to Help You Save On Your Flight

•    Avoid direct flights. While convenient (and available from some major cities on the west coast) they are the most costly. Direct flights can also be more exhausting for some travellers (can you commit to more than twenty hours on one flight?). There are more comfortable and convenient options.

•    Most travellers will book stop-overs on their way to Australia. Countries such as Dubai and Hong Kong are fabulous to visit on a one day stop over. Not only does it give you the opportunity to rest from the flight but it also allows you to take in some of the exotic local flavour of other countries on your way. It enriches your travel experience and will leave you refreshed and ready to take on the adventurous continent of Australia when you arrive.

•    Lastly if you are planning on travelling for a few weeks, explore the opportunity to purchase an “around-the-world” ticket which leaves you free to visit other continents usually for the same price as a direct flight to Australia. It literally opens a world of travel opportunity if you have the time and inclination to explore.

When booking your travel to Australia (like other flights) the most economical rates will be for connecting flights that are also booked well in advance. Since a trip to Australia is a more expensive vacation, plan at least two months ahead of time in order to get the best rates and choice availability for your flights.
