As per our terms and conditions, due to fluctuations in flight prices globally we have had to invoke ‘Flight Surcharges’ on all flights above the budgeted amounts below:

From Australia to:
Europe: AU$2,500
USA: AU$3,000
Japan: AU$2,000
Canada: AU$2,750
South America: AU$3,000
New Zealand: AU$1,200

We are working with our flight partners to obtain the best flight (including price and route) but we may need to charge a flight surcharge if we cannot obtain a flight within the budget amounts above. Please be aware that we cannot accommodate personal requests with regards to changes to flights, times or dates, as flights will adhere to pre agreed programs dates and times, which can include departures from 7am – 10pm depending on the agreed arrival time at the final destination. Please note that a flight surcharge may be applied to all applications. We reserve the right to increase the flight surcharge if, at the time of making flight bookings, airlines are charging a higher amount for flight prices. If there is no increase made to flight prices then we will not charge a flight surcharge.
