I'm looking for a ADL-SYD this coming Sunday to attend the NRL Grand Final. It looks like the QF at 0930 is sold out (only J seats on sale on the website), with the services through out the day pricing at $426 to $1000 one way!

By contrast, VA still has Y tickets at $315. However, what I found interesting is that I found the same flight/fare on skyscanner.smartfares.com for US$217.90.

At the current exchange rate that is A$284.63. Add on 3% for FX charges since its a foreign website, and you're stil paying $293 AUD - a saving of $22 (about 7pc).

Does anyone have experience booking with this website? Should I be worried at all?

I find a lot of the websites they send you to have "booking fees". If not, book it.
