Flying To Australia

Published: Friday 20 February 2015

Australia is literally on the other side of the world, so if you’re planning on emigrating there then it’s imperative to consider travel time, travel costs and the various flight paths/airports. If you plan on leaving family behind then this is especially as you may wish to travel back and forth or even convince your family to come and visit you when you’re settled in your new home. It’s also worthwhile looking at the ways in which you can make your travel a little more comfortable by reading online articles, asking friends who travel regularly, or asking your doctor the best ways to take care of yourself during a long-haul flight. If you’re traveling to Australia from the UK then you can expect to spend up to 26 hours traveling to get there, depending on your stopovers and delays. Typical stopover destinations include Dubai, Bangkok, Singapore or Hong Kong. Flight prices can range anywhere from £500 to £1500+, depending on who you travel with, time of year, and any special requirements/stopovers etc. It is worth shopping around and finding a good deal, but it’s important to keep in mind that cheaper flights may not offer as much comfort as the more expensive ones… You may regret knocking off £100 for your flight when you’re 10 hours into your journey, trying to sleep but can’t because of the uncomfortable springs in your economy seat.
