Visit the sites below
Enter the destinations with corresponding dates to receive a quote from each site
Use the quotes to locate the best price or deal.
These are the best sites to check in order of preference:
These are the best sites for flights within the US
These are the best sites for flights within China
Compare all alternatives researched and select 3 of the best options to choose from. Make a recommendation for the option you feel is best (with reasons) and give to your boss to get his/her approval and initial before booking.
- Some travel companies, such as Flight Centre, are able to match or beat the prices quoted by their competitors so be sure to ask them for a competitive fare. See Booking Online Versus Using a Travel Agent
- Make sure that before comparing the prices the quotes include all the taxes/ surcharges/fees
- Booking sites often charge a fee for the service, for instance
- Ensure that the quotes you receive are 'flexible' ( i.e. they provide an option to alter the travelling dates once the tickets are purchased)
- Remember to convert all prices to Australian dollars when comparing quotes, by using the SSW Currency Converter.
- Avoid Paper tickets - they are hard to change. Go for E-tickets
- We would recommend Google Flight and Bing travel but neither work for Australia - see this tweet.
