I spent the weekend trying to sort Jnr#2's intra Europe flights between LHR-AMS-ATH-BERLIN-CDG (all one way). I tried numerous 3rd party sites, which is where I found most of the flights, but booked the majority on the airline websites direct. The main criteria for the flight searches were timing, cost & flight duration. I got 2 on Easyjet and 1 on Air Serbia. The last flight search, Berlin to Paris, posed a bit of a problem because all the flights that I searched were coming up around the $170+ mark. I narrowed the search down to Easyjet and Air France. Air France came in cheaper to book a return flight and included baggage fees, which I would have had to add to the Easyjet fare.

When I was booking the ticket, I noted the drop down box for age. I am used to only seeing adult, child & infant. Air France have an age group for 18 -24 (Jnr#2 is 21). To cut a long story short, I was able to get a one way fare TXL-CDG for AUD $125 including baggage. The ticket is modifiable for free and refundable for EUR 20. The same fare for an adult 25+ is $211 or $500+ (flexi).

Looking at other dates, I noted that the cheapest fare for the same flight is AUD $75 (restricted), so I guess the cheaper fare buckets had all been sold.

There is one major problem with booking on the Air France website - you are pretty much limited to using a Visa Debit card. There are a couple of alternatives, but I think those options are limited to local France/Europe. If you don't have a Visa debit, the charge is AUD $30. You can't even use Mastercard debit without getting stung. I had to transfer some $$$ into my Citibank debit card and then used that.

Anyway, I thought is was a good find for the young 'uns and worth noting.
