Tips On Cheap Airline Flights And Travel

  • Try to avoid flying on Australian Public Holidays or peak times say in Easter and at Christmas. School holidays are another time to try and avoid the higher airfares. Check a yearly calendar for these periods and dates.
  • There is no need for a passport to travel between states however photo I.D. will be required due to security measures.
  • You are able to be met and seen off at all domestic departure and arrival terminals
  • Virgin Blue Air flights are basic but comfortable and for that extra pampering and comfort then Qantas can provide all you require.

Purchasing Cheap Airline Flights Tickets

Over the years I have had the opportunity to travel between several different States of Australia including over Bass Straight to Tasmania.

I have also experienced International flying both leaving and re-entering Australia, quite an experience.

Both experiences have their challenges however in Melbourne it is pretty straight forward.

Just follow the signs, ask for directions if you need to and enjoy your experience.

When booking your Cheap Airline Flight ticket be very aware of any extras like

  • charges for extra baggage (check with the airlines as to how much luggage you can take on bard without incurring an extra charge. Sometimes the extra charge can counteract the saving on the fare.
  • be aware that some airlines charge a booking fee
  • some airlines also charge a fee if you opt to choose your own seating.

All these extras can add up an sometimes create a travelling experice that well and truly eats into your budget.

Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
