  • Bag a Bargain Airfare by Going Foreign

    This week our members spill some money-saving secrets. Bagging a bargain is more exciting when you have an audience who appreciate your purchasing talents. Our members are a captivated audience when it comes to saving cash on airfares.

    Take for example the recent Qantas "Asia on Sale" promotion (no longer available). Before splashing your cash and booking online on the Qantas or other Australian booking sites such as, our members suggest searching for the same flights on non-Australian websites.

    Some savvy members managed to get an effective 20% discount on the identical flight by booking on the Brazilian version of Expedia! Translating these foreign websites can present a challenge but again, our member are happy to help. Other helpful sites revealed by our members include Air Asia and "Scoot".
