Good Toronto travel agent for Australia?
July 21, 2008 2:07 PM   Subscribe

Can anyone recommend a good travel agent in Toronto specializing in travel to Australia? (Someone with access to cheap flights is particularly valuable.)

I'm having mixed success finding the right fare and flight with TravelCuts and GoWay (both of which are excellent, don't get me wrong). I'm looking for any further recommendations. Thanks!

FlightCentre.ca seems to do Australian flights at decent prices and I know they've got physical locations in Toronto as well.

Thanks, kate. Those prices aren't for my travel period yet, but I'll check back.

GoWay made a number of mistakes the first and only time I used them, including deliberately misstating their street address so I wouldn’t find them and double-charging the Sydney airport fee. This was, admittedly, in 1995.

Travel specialists are normally about tours, not cheap fares. Any agent can do cheap fares. Go to your local budget travel depot. Ask them for the cheapest fare in your travel period including fares where a change of airlines etc may be required eg Toronto - Vancouver - Narita (Japan) - Sydney. Or go via Kuala Lumpur if you can get a cheap flight there and catch an Air Asia (cheap) to the Gold Coast then bus to Sydney.

Airfares to/from Australia have risen lately due to oil prices. Also, fares are very season/event dependent.

Happy travels!

You can try websites like Kayak and Vayama. I'm looking for tickets to Australia now as well. It sucks.

Kayak has fares for around 1600 now, depending on when you are travelling. Quantas has cheap flights out of Toronto via LA.
