    Omegatravel are great for cheap flights to China. If you are a college or university student then you can get a good discount. As the staff at Omega are Chinese, you will find it easier if you can ask a Chinese friend to book for you.

    Finnair offer cheap flights to Beijing and Shanghai if you book directly on the Finnair website. They are normally cheaper than found on sites such as Opodo. Currently flights are £412 from Manchester to Beijing via Helsinki.

    can anyone recommend somewhere to get cheap(er) flights to Antalya in Turkey?

    I am totally flexible when I fly, but I do need to go from Manchester or a Midlands airport

    I'm a retired employment solicitor. Hopefully some of my comments might be useful, but they are only my opinion and not intended as legal advice.

    How can all the Asian ( Indian, Pakistan etc) travel agents get the cheap tickets to India for far less than other agents or even from the airline web sites eg flights to Amritsar from B'ham on JET AIR, Turkmenistan etc for less than £400. They also do the same for travel to USA etc
    The Asian travel agents are still cheaper than any website or the main street travel agents. How ?

    Which ones do you mean?

    Am hoping to go to Vietnam for around five weeks over July & August.
    Can anybody recommend any cheap travel agents where I can book a lo cost flight from the UK. Also are there any co's that do good deals on flights into Ho Chi Minh and out of Hanoi or similar? Or is a return the best bet. Are there any good deals which will allow a stop over? Thanks Venus.
  • i was wondering if long haul flights ever become cheaper...last minute
