    Just wondering if anyone has used this site before?

    Looking at purchasing some tickets and they're $600 cheaper than the airlines direct site.

    Cheers

    Nope. If I was concerned I'd just print the quote and take it into flight centre for an on the spot match. Has always worked for me.

    Sweet - so they match these online agents too?

    Yep. Last time I walked in they were like "oh, that's easy to match. Wait, does that include taxes? Damn."

    They still matched it though.

    Yes, return to Europe with a stopover in Abu Dhabi, no issues, made one change after initial booking, they charged a bit extra for that

    Flight Centre will price match, but will check the website when you contact them as the offer has to be currently available.

    Mate - you've literally only been a few days and you're already booking tickets? :p

    Often if you show that to the airline direct they will match it and I always find it easiest to deal with airlines directly.
    However I believe bestjet.com and skyscanner.com are both pretty good companies to deal with.

    I'd avoid booking using that site:
    Bestjet.com - buying online - Air Travel Forum - TripAdvisor

    Many reviewers say they were sold nonexistent flights at cut rates.
    I always book direct with airlines after looking into these types of online sites (and seeing all the negative trip advisor reviews!)
    I'd be surprised if flight centre would match prices from such sites but might be worth a shot

    Anyone looking to visit Tassie should check out jetstars sale. I just booked a trip to Melbs for less than $80 RETURN!

    Haha - I'm addicted to the states. Going to spend the new year break with the family in California. Will catch up with clients and do work stuff as well.

    Thanks for the responses guys - went into Flight Centre this morning and they matched that online offer without any issues.

    Cheers
