Hi All
I know many of you are now organizing flights, does anyone know if the Flight Centre will beat the price (usually by$1) advertised on onetravel.com. I am asking as I just feel more comfortable buying from travel agent than online

Hi Aussieboy
I have been looking on the Airlines websites they are the cheapest flights so when we are ready to book I would be booking it through Quantas direct which I think is the best way

Cheers
Woody

We had that with expedia.com that if you find flights with exact the same flts (itinerary, flt no. Sched) cheaper, all you have to do is give the link where u found the flight or which website you got it and then they will check if its same flt they offer then match the price if u book it through them instead..

Travel Agency's whether online or not get flights and hotel rooms by bulk thats why some find it cheaper to book through agency than direct with the airlines or hotel bec prices given to agencys are by bulk and discounted so they can offer it lower than the hotel or airlines itself..

@Aussieboy07,

Check if the have the "Best Price Guaranteed" advertisement.. Or call flight centre directly and ask them if they can match the flights you saw at onetravel.com.. It has to be same exact flights..
They should have options to let you book direct with them (flight centre) like if they cant match it, might offer vouchers or coupons for your flight ( or probably next flight..)
Wouldn't hurt if you give them a call..

I'm 99% sure that flight centre will not price match on onetravel.com and that is because it is not an Australian company. For flight centre to match it must be from an Australian company.

Maybe check to see what the best price is that onetravel.com is using and go to their website and see what they can do for you.

Also interesting to note that I just did a search for flights on flight centre and it is the same price as what I can get the flights on the airlines website.

I've worked with online travel agencies and based on experience, flightcentre, you can walk-in and book flights but you can also access booking online... just as long as the price is in the same currency, like for onetravel.com, if ur quoted amount, if you select $AU, if it is lower than quoted amount on flightcentre booking also in $AU then it shouldnt matter bec flight centre has this on their website:

LOWEST AIRFARE GUARANTEE
Here you'll find the lowest available prices on domestic flights to all destinations around Australia, as well as cheap international flights to a huge range of worldwide destinations. We won't be beaten on price and will beat any comparable quote.

^Based on Australian registered businesses & websites for travel departing within Australia.
Written quote must be presented prior to booking.

Like what i've said, it wouldn't hurt to try ringing them if you find any flights cheaper than what they offer, bec one of the price match requirements is of course, they should be quouted in same currency..

And also might consider if the flight will not be coming from AU ( int'l flts) thats why you have to ring them just to check.. Who knows..

From my point of view.. As long as it satisfies these informations:
-Are travel dates the same?
-For a flight booking, is the airline, class, fare basis and cancellation policy
the same?
-Is the quote in AUD?

It doesnt matter if its a US online travel agency or from any part of the world bec were talking of online booking which covers all parts of the world and flight centre can also be classified as and online travel agency.. AS LONG AS ITS SAME CURRENCY, and thats why they offer the LOWEST AIRFARE GUARANTEE

Doesn't hurt to check but they say:
Q. Will Flight Centre beat quotes from foreign websites or for travel that originates outside Australia?

A. No.

onetravel.com is a foreign website.

Doesn't hurt to check though because you may always get someone that is new and does not know the rules.

Here is the rules regarding the lowest fares if anyone is interested: Lowest Airfare Guarantee FAQs - Flight Centre
