    Qantas and Jetstar 30% off reward seat sale NOV21 - Domestic

    I find when the Qantas site is giving me trouble that clearing my browser cache and also deleting all the Qantas browser cookies seems to help with errors in search and booking. YMMV. I managed to book over a dozen flights for the next 6 months, time will tell if I can take them all 😀

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    Australian state border restrictions

    Thanks, the general gist seems to thinks it’s OK which is what I thought, 25km limit only applies to Melbourne so Regional Vic travelers would be ok.

    Australian state border restrictions

    A question for the AFF brains trust. Is someone from regional VIC allowed to travel to NSW from June 11 12.01am without isolating? the rules seem vauge (or I have missed something), NSW is lifting its stay at home rules, for people that arrived after 27th, so seems new arrivals are now ok to...

    Airbnb COVID cancellations

    Seems like that might have been the case. I contacted the host last night and they responded that they were still happy to provide a full refund but had not seen anything. I contacted AirBnB this morning, outlined the issue and noted that most of the correspondence could be seen on their...

    Airbnb COVID cancellations

    Curious, I have a similar situation for a booking in late April. I contacted the host and they kindly informed me they would approve a full refund (would have been 50%). I sent off the request and 2 days later received the "host has declined" which I thought was odd as we had had a pleasant...
