We know that Australia is on your traveler’s bucket list (otherwise you wouldn’t be here) but the long-haul flight can seem like a daunting journey, causing some people to put off the trip. We promise it’s totally worth it and really not as bad as you might think.
Currently at the time of writing this article, there are no nonstop flights between Australia and Europe (although that will be changing soon) and however, you can fly direct between the East Coast of Australia and West Coast of the US.
You’re ready to fly Down under and you start looking at websites and see some pretty good prices. The fine print will tell you the date period and you then type in the dates you can actually go, and the price almost doubles.
There is a trick to this, and the answer is routing. While flights generally fly to Australia from Los Angeles to Sydney, you do have options from and into other cities! You must be careful grabbing what looks to be the cheapest flight online as you may end up routing through New Zealand or even Korea! Your time is valuable and you want to land and start seeing those kangaroos as soon as possible.
You need not land into Sydney – you might want to fly into Brisbane and start your trip enjoying the Great Barrier Reef or Melbourne and experience the great Ocean road. You can exit from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane back to the U.S and Europe. The options are there and our team are happy to support you with your flights.
Check the fine print and cheapest is not always best. Any questions – our team are happy to help.
