Vacation to Sydney!

Postby Wd40 » Thu, 24 Oct 2013 11:11 pm

Just casually browsing Facebook and I see this ad that FlyScoot has a 24hr offer of $24 fares to any destination(Its still on, in case anyone is interested!). Curious about it, went and did a search and found some awesome deals. Spent about 1 hr and decided Sydney it is. Got return tickets for 3 of us for $630 flat :cool:

I have booked for 4 nights in the middle of Feb. Now starts the actual research about visas, where to stay, what to do etc :)

Funny how $24 ends up as $210 isn't it. But hey that's budget airline pricing for you.

Still a good deal though, and it is a lovely city to visit!

Sydney is awesome. Lots to see. Eating out is expensive though. Best to make your own meals or take-away.

Thanks guys. I just realised after booking the tickets that visa for Indians is A$130!!!! Damn! That's super expensive.

Hotels too nothing decent under $100, but luckily my cousin stays in Sydney and has offered to host us and show us around, that's a mighty sigh of relief :)

These fees tend to be reciprocal (tit-for-tat). Fees for visas to India are very high. I can't find the cost from the HCI website, but even a simple tourist stamp/chop 'visa on arrival' is US$60!
