Now, Brits can fly to Australia for ten pounds

By Super Admin

Melbourne, July 7 (ANI): British travellers will soon be able to fly to Australia for ten pounds, which is less than the price of a guide book.

The move to boost the tourism industry will see 150 Qantas tickets to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane or Adelaide available for anyone with a valid working holiday visa.

Travellers will be able to return home whenever they wish.

The limited tickets will be available from STA Travel outlets across the UK on August 5 on a first-come, first-served basis.

The fare is available for departures between August 15 and September 30 and November 1 to 30.

Would-be travellers are being encouraged to buy tax-inclusive tickets, which are expected to be snapped up within hours, reports news.com.au.

Those who miss out will be offered special Qantas return airfares at STG679 (1386.56 dollars).

More than 35,000 young Brits travel on the working holiday program each year, Tourism Australia's UK/Europe general manager Rodney Harrex said.

Harrex said it was hoped the offer would bolster awareness of Australia's working holiday program, encouraging more 18 to 30-year-olds to come in the future. (ANI)
