Ok, lets talk about Australia! OZ!
Growing up I thought I would never make it to Australia as prices for the flight alone were well over $2,000.00. But following the tips from my cheap flight article I found a screaming deal with a friend. We booked flight and hotel (Swissotel Sydney and Travelodge Wynyard) together and paid less than $2,000 for 8 nights for both of us! Here's how we did it!
-We followed the flight alerts
-Went in the off season winter, which was mild and still awesome, beach was great and night was the perfect amount of cold
-We made the layover vacation in San Francisco 12 hours to get a quick day trip in!
-We took advantage of expedia's book flight and hotel together, it made the hotels nearly free.
That's right hotels, nearly free! We booked Sydney and only stayed in Sydney, but we booked it as 2 destinations and clicked no flight needed between, it programmed expedia to still give us the discount so we could stay in two completely different areas of the city!
Tips for OZ:
-Use public transport, there is no need to hire a car in Sydney, we even ventured out to Katoomba and Featherdale Park using the train.
-Have a few drinks before you go out, the bars are EXPENSIVE!
