Book flights from Perth to U.K in the U.K?

Recommended Posts

Hi all


I have been looking into travelling back to the U.K for my first return visit since we got here on 2009. There seems to be a massive difference in prices if you were to book the equivalent trip from the U.K. A price difference that goes beyond the exchange rate calculation. So my question is.....


Could my parents in the U.K go into a U.K travel agent and book us a return trip flying Perth - U.K - Perth?


We will have both U.K and Australian passports.


Has anyone done this or have an answer to this? T.I.A :wub:

They can book it from the UK, but it will be the same price (converted into GBP) as you'd pay in Australia.. The argument is that there is a much greater demand for flights from Europe to Australia, than Australia to Europe. People say this is a rip off, but it is no different to how rail tickets are priced in the UK (it is more expensive to travel to London than from it).
