    OMG their website is so difficult to navigate, I can't work out how to get a quote for a Bangkok to Perth flight - I give up!!!

    :D I think so too Lisss. And to be honest I tend to find that they are a little bit more expensive than other travel sites. Remember you need to factor in that these guys take a 'booking fee'. This may be negated by the cashback from Bucky - if you spend enough of course.
    I think Jetstar, Tiger and Air Asia have been the best thing to happen to OZ in a long time when it comes to travel

    It's not impossible, but the interface could definitely be improved.

    The sale thing is unclear as it doesn't actually say what the sale is. On the itineraries I checked it was a 2.75% discount, which is reasonable in these times of low margin airfares and commission TAs, but not that great in a relative sense.

    That said, there's definite dodginess in their pricing. I tried some fares I knew and the upfront price matched elsewhere (virtually - it was $2 dearer) less the 2.75% discount. However, when you then confirm the booking and it displays the total pricing, the price and fares it displays are much higher than that selected. One confirmed price should have been ~$5500, but it displayed ~$10500 as the total. Another should have been $2184.75 but came up as $3335.29 and there was no explanation for either. If you're not paying attention to the calculation you could easily get ripped off.
