Top Answers To Melbourne Travel Questions
Alistair answered:Karl, Qantas currently has sale fares for flights to Melbourne from LAX for $1,398. However, the quoted price is for travel between end of October and just before the Thanksgiving holidays (it's also only active for next couple of days). Of course, fares will depend on your outbound airport and dates of travel. Winter in the northern hemisphere coincides with summer Down Under, meaning fares will peak from December through February. Qantas typically offers some pretty good sales and packages through its websites, as do other regional carriers like Air New Zealand and Cathay Pacific. You could also look into round-the-world tickets, which could combine carriers and destinations for some quite hefty savings when compared with individual ticket prices. Lastly, take a look at Away.com's compare rates tool to see prices specific to your location and desired dates of travel across a number of different websites: http://away.com/plan-a-trip/compare-rates.html
