    Not Sure of Return Date - Best Booking Option?

    So I have Jnr#2 heading back to AMS in March from MEL with no problem booking the outgoing flight, but she is unsure of a return date. What is the best option in this scenario? Book a return 12 months out or book a one way? Can you extend a return date past 12 months (paying the fee)?

    White House Tour Washington.

    Just been googling White House tours, which apparently, are available by contacting the Australian Embassy in Washington to book. A search of the forum returned nothing. Just wondering if anyone has done the tour and whether it was worth the trouble?

    I'm in the early stages of planning a trip to USA (& Cabo) next year. It's a family trip and everyone will, most likely, be travelling in Y. I thought I might shout my sibling, and myself of course, the trip over in business using my points. I am aware how hard it is to get direct flights to...
