ok ok .. not quite a deal but I had to share ... BEST FLIGHTS OFFER 1.8% CASHBACK

I got very excited about this when I saw it and listed it on Buckscoop. Well yes... maybe I should get out more but I think this is a really good offer.
Not only do Best Flights offer some really good sale and flight prices but you now can pocket a little cashback for your holiday

And of course you then grab travel insurance from World Nomads or Travel Insurance Australia .. which I know a lot of you do anyway

SO yes this is a tip but in many ways a hot deal cos you rarely get discount codes for flights and cashback is the next best thing

    thats about 80% more than pretty much everywhere else on flights. The fact that the average % is 1 or under shows how cutthroat flights are.

    Hot from me :). Looking to fly to Europe next year with family and Best flights have some gr8 early bird deals.

    I think that's fantastic, but if I may, I'd like to mention the saying:

    Without a travel agent, you're on your own.


    So it's definitely great for Australian flights, but as for international ones, would you rather get $36 cash-back for your $2000 London flight or get all the protection that your local travel agent offers?

    I just thought I'd mention this, if that's alright. :D

    And I do mean this in a way where this is possibly a company that is going to offer you no assistance when you are overseas. If you book through a reputable company like the Flight Centre Group, Student Flights or STA Travel - they have branches all around Australia, so booking online is basically the same without all the 'extras' they will throw in at a 'special' price for you god bless them. :D So it is very different from an online only company which only acts as a third party between the airline and the consumer, to sell tickets directly from the airline. And if you didn't know, an airline company will not offer you assistance while you are overseas.

    Interesting idea Leny. Something I don't really think about.

    Out of interest what sort of assistance or extras are you talking about?
  • leny2008/09/12 23:55:57
    I'm talking about things like changing your flights, getting stuck somewhere you don't know where, making insurance claims etc. There are many services that travel agents offer.

    Isnt thats why u take travel insurance out?

    Travel.com.au gives 2.2% (excluding taxes & booking feess) or $5.20 cash back for domestic bookings

    In my experience travel agents where you go in person normally only offer you a long wait.

    My tip: Search flights on the travel.com.au website then book with the airline with the best price at your prefered time.
