Top tips for finding a cheap flight

  • If you are bringing children with you to Australia, you must be aware that it is illegal for a baby or child under the age of seven years old to travel in a car without a child restraint. For this reason, you will need to bring a car seat on your flight to Australia or rent one upon arrival.
  • To visit the north of Australia, book a flight to Darwin International Airport (DRW) which services the Norther Territory and gives you access to several islands in the Beagle Gulf.
  • The centre of Darwin is only 11.4 km from the airport, or you could opt to catch a 2h 30min flight to Cairns International Airport (CNS) in neighbouring Queensland.
  • If you want to visit the east of Australia, there are a couple airports for you to choose from. Brisbane Airport (SNE) and Gold Coast Airport both service the southeast of Queensland and are ideal if you would like to be close to the beach. Further down the coast, Sydney Airport (SYD) services New South Wales and is under a 3h drive away from the capital city of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory.
  • Before you get on your flight to Australia, you will need to apply for a visa in order to enter the country. If you are a Canadian passport holder, you will need to apply for a visa online, rather than a paper visa. This will allow you to visit Australia multiple times over a 12-month period, throughout which you will be able to stay for up to three months during each visit. The service fee for applying for an online visa is around 22 AUD (20 CAD).

Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."
Cons: "I think more options that don’t involve seafood would be good, but I’ll also consider selecting a specific meal in the future."

Pros: "Very clean. Crew was very good. Food was for the most part fine."
Cons: "Entertainment was pretty lacking. No paid WiFi service on the airplane for a modern country’s air fleet... only texting."

Pros: "ANA flights are always well run and good enough."
Cons: "Their iphone applications could be smoother and more functional."

Pros: "The flight attendants were so awesome and beautiful! Food and snacks were great and the amount of time we were fed. They came around in a timely manner to get trash and ask what we wanted to drink."
Cons: "More variety of options for the vegan meals..."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Polite and professional. The meals were very good for economy class."
Cons: "The seats felt like there was no padding in the seat. The back was fine."

Pros: "Their friendliness And care for the passengers"
Cons: "i can not think of anything."

Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."

Pros: "The staff of ANA took superb care of us from the moment we entered the airport (both SEA and NRT); kindness, excellent food (choose the seafood diet, the food is excellent and you get served first!) and helpful directions in English whenever we looked the slightest bit confused. I will always look to fly ANA going forward. oh, and comfortable economy seats; enough room (I am 6'2") and no numb bum."

Pros: "Perhaps the most courteous airline I’ve experienced."

Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"

Pros: "The food was great. There was a good selection of shows and movies. The stewardesses came around with water and juice often which was really nice. The bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."

Pros: "Overall comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks like fruit juices were given in too small portions like a quarter cup by stewardess; as if the drinks were being saved or rationed Not much choice for movies. Movies were not well selected"

Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."

Cons: "19 hours overlay in ORD. I had to check out all luggages again. Terrible."

Pros: "Smooth , professional crew and their hospitality and especially their smile and attention to passengers is unparalleled."
Cons: "I'm flight entertainment seemed a little limiting to me- more updated and new releases can enhance I've really experience"

Pros: "Stewards were very polite"
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable on the long flight from San Francisco to Tokyo; poor movie quality and poor choices of movies"

Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Seats need more padding -- perhaps an optional pad for some customers. It may be impossible to avoid literal butt hurt on a 14-hour flight, but an additional seat pad probably would have helped. Little Japanese woman next to me had one and I think she was quite comfortable."

Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."

Pros: "Excellent service!"

Pros: "I missed my flight. The customer service agent was awesome!"
Cons: "Flying United. I missed my flight. The gate was packed with people so I sat literally a quarter mile away. The flight was delayed and I got a text telling me new departure time. I show up for new departure time. Plane left six minutes earlier. First thanks for the bad information. Second thanks for not paging me. Third I don't care when the plane is supposed to leave. Just tell me what time to be at the gate so I can stand around after an international flight. Oh and if a flight attendee to squawk rudely at a paying customer when we do land, why I'd just have to ask myself AGAIN ... why do I fly United?"

Pros: "From communication on flight details to boarding to in-flight comfort, ANA rocked. The staff was so kind, seeing that we had what we needed. I didn't feel like a liability at all, and I think their approach to the work ensured a great flight experience for everyone."

Pros: "the food, service, and efficiency"
Cons: "The really long layovers"

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Choices of food."

Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary.

Pros: "Crew was fine, polite and helpful. Seat was not so comfortable as i am tall (no leg room)"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."

Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive and helpful, wheel chair provided at Doha airport by helpful and friendly staff, comfortable seating in business class. Overall I would give my flight an A rating."

Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."

Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."

Pros: "We were booked on "S" class fares, which meant no seat selection until 48 hours before departure. However, we were able to get aisle seats with no problem. The crew was wonderful, service was great, and entertainment exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."

Pros: "The extra space was nice, but expected as I paid for it."
Cons: "My wife's and my seats were sticky and difficult to recline. my headphone socket had lose fitting and neither the airline supplied headphone nor my Bose QC headphone were able to work constantly. The service from the two hosts was poor with very little to no engagement or pleasantries. I compare this with Premium Economy class flights with other airlines I have flown and I will elect not to fly Cathy Pacific again. I also found the food and the service below average. No option for wine on this flight, just red or white."

Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew did not offer beverages or bottled water for coach passengers. The lights were left on for most of the redeye despite it being a 5 hour flight. The plane was old - there was food from the previous flight in my seat when I arrived. The blanks and pillows looked used and worn. Our flight arrived 45 minutes late with no explanation - it seemed to be a result of the slow/delayed boarding process. I will avoid Cathay Pacific going forward."

Pros: "Seats are comfort"
Cons: "Considering travelling on business class, there were no more dinner for 2 people after 1 hour of sleeping. I though dinner should be on held when people were sleeping in business class. In fact, I am wrong."

Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"

Cons: "Service.. Got ignored when asked for coffee. Got ignored when food choice came around. Lady sitting beside me also got same service ignored"

Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew throughout flight, good plane configuration, even economy comfortable. Really impressed!"
Cons: "Maybe more veg selections on main menu and more/better beer."

Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and was not able to catch up my cebu flight. I was accommodated in a flight about 5 hrs after my original mla ceb flight and was not allowed access to PAL lounge as I was told I only have an economy flight. Very frustrated considering I flew as a PWD."

Pros: "Yes, they were nice and approachable at all time. The seat was fine, I slept most of the time"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seat was excellent"
Cons: "Having the luggage checked in transit without going out to open it for inspection"

Pros: "Great boarding system and all crews were attentive and polite."
Cons: "more sauce on the meat."

Cons: "Never on time. Almst missed connection. Planned on 4 hours. Downn to the wire. Nevermore."

Pros: "Very nice purser and her crew. Accomodating. Love the safety video!"
Cons: "Different option other than hot sandwiches for mid flight snack"

Pros: "Philippine Air staff are amazing. They will do everything possible within their power to make you comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are a little thin and the angle does not give adequate lower back support."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Flight itself was great, but my luggage was lost in transit and staff have been very unhelpful in getting it back to me."
Cons: "Better way to deal with lost luggage, and they need to automatically deliver it to our address instead of tell us that we need to go back to the airport to pick it up ourselves. It’s been a huge hassle."

Pros: "The flight crew was very good."
Cons: "We waited a long time to take off once we boarded on account of the plane not done being loaded."

Pros: "your crew and the service provided"
Cons: "some video channel dose not work such an the flight map."

Pros: "Flight was on time, and was not overcrowded. Flight crew was polite."

Cons: "waiting 2 hours for the plane to park"

Pros: "Beautiful plane and crew. On time. Comfortable economy seats. I can’t complain. The food was no worse than any other carrier in economy."

Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"

Pros: "Excellent crew, very attentive and polite. New/newly refurbished plane and very clean."
Cons: "I thought I read somewhere that Premium Economy had their own toilets but that didn't seem to be the case. The Mabuhay Lounge (for those with access) is in need of a renovation and can be hard to find seats."

Pros: "same thing, food and crew were very courteous"

Pros: "The offer of assistance before I even asked for it; genuine concern"

Pros: "From the moment I entered the plane, I was greeted by smiling faces, smooth jazz, and a perfectly air conditioned temperature. It was at this moment that I knew I was in for a treat. There was so much leg room, I closed my eyes at one point and felt like I was laying on a beach in Hawaii. The plane had a fantastic movie selection and great cuisine. Even the crying baby in the row over was such a delight!"
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was how much I liked it!"

Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "No options for vegan or vegetarian meals"

Pros: "Very happy the crew was good all in all a good flight and great value for money."

Pros: "Don't normally like leaving from JFK, but it was a direct flight to Vancouver, and the price was right. Also, they included 2 free bags in economy, a big savings. Also the meals were ok, and wine was included. Entertainment system was fine."
Cons: "Would have rather left out of EWR, but for the price it was worth the bit of inconvenience."

Cons: "As we landed 15 minutes early we were forced to wait 45 minutes on the plane because our gate was occupied. after we finally got off and went through customs we waited another hour to receive our luggage. When the luggage finally came out the crews luggage was the first to come out. So we all watched as the crew gathered their luggage which took another 15 minutes. Shouldn't the paying customers be first?"

Pros: "Boarding was organized. Food was excellent. A couple of complaints from fellow passengers were handled very professionally by crews. Leg room was not an issue for me as I am an average Asian height but for medical purposes - there should be a policy for them to separate sick-looking passengers from older passengers and children."
Cons: "Seat covers were musty and smells old - they need to change those! Flight got delayed for almost one hour while trying to dock because there was no assigned hangar station for the plane! How can an international airline company allow themselves to be treated like that? The crew looked overworked - what are these airline companies doing to these young professionals - treat them like slaves? I'm not surprised - that's the Philippines companies ways - pay them just enough so they can come back the next time to work."

Pros: "The staff is always hospitable. I was pleased that they left a snack for me even when I was sleeping because when I wake up I was hungry. I also like the disposable toothbrush and paste provided. And bathrooms on the flight were clean, unlike some other airlines."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as good this time as my previous flight with Philippine Airlines, but not a big problem.problem"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "There wasn't much about this flight I liked to be honest."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed with no explanation from the crew."

Pros: "Seats should be improved, thicker and more comfortable. Honestly I preferred standing halfway thru the flight . It was like concrete!! Rice was so mushy thought it was mash potatoes at first . Crew was exceptional w their service and the washrooms were kept clean even towards the end of the flight. Very important."

Pros: "great price. smooth & relaxed flight! No cons"

Cons: "Delayed flight and suddenly PAL require each one of us to check in our carry baggage."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding was efficient and flight departed and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Food is awful, and options are limited. I also think they need to reconsider playing music on the aircraft, it’s quite irritating."

Pros: "Toilets were kept clean through out the flight. New and clean airplane. Good space between the seats."
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude in general (serving food, drinks, answering questions), he skipped rows when giving hot towels (I wasn't served a hot towel). In-flight entertainment: limited movie selection, even more limited tv shows selection. Music section was very poor, it needs more selection with variaty, known artists, more radio channels. And music tracks should be in a tracklist form with song information, not only 1 hour-long tracks of back to back music (with no info). Meals - Mains were ok, deserts were terrible in both of my flights. Snacks were also bad, a scone and beef and cheese sandwich. Very blend, white bread only and oily. We weren't served enough bevarages, so oily and high-carb foods made me very thursty. No water fountains, it'd be great to have some around since staff does not give enough beverage and I was forced to chuck my water before boarding the airplane (the water I bought in the airport after passport check!!!!!!!) It was extremely cold."

Pros: "Seats and service in business class Crew"
Cons: "Food and choice of after dinner drinks No amenity bag Earphones were not noise canceling"

Pros: "Entertainment, Meal options, Baggage Allowance, Plane."
Cons: "Slow check in, strollers can't be taken to the plane and are not left outside the plane at arrival this is extremely inconvenient for families with small children. The website is useless. You cant check your reservation or select a seat until 24 hours before your flight."

Pros: "Excellent flight despite 90 minute delay at Vancouver. They emailed and called me several hours earlier"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Truly a horrendous experience. Worst airline I've ever flown."

Cons: "Delayed boarding & not organized"

Cons: "Delayed boarding ( can be expected ) but very little information given about it"

Cons: "Stinky guy sit beside me but overall good"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Excellent crews"
Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "paid extra for a seat with leg room ...no tv . this is going to manila on a round trip ticket.coming back was ok."

Pros: "The crew went above and beyond and made sure I had a meal that I could eat despite not having ordered ahead. Everyone was friendly and things ran very smoothly."

Pros: "the service and overall quality and comfort of plane"

Pros: "The lemon butter fish was one of the better airplane meals I've ever had. Boarding was quick and smooth. Taiwanese people take the longest of any nationality to board a plane (they have a series of "pre-seating" maneuvers which cause huge backups). Despite this, the flight attendants politely humored them and were not pushy. Had this happened in the US, the flight attendants would have told them to sit down, get out of the way, and do their aisle stretching exercises and random meanders around the plane AFTER all passengers had been seated!"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. The flight attendants seemed more interested in gossiping with each other than greeting passengers (though one or two were very good and professional). Only one flight attendant could speak Chinese. This was not a problem for me, though it was for some of the Taiwanese tourists."

Pros: "Customer service was horrible when I called to ask for assistance prior to the trip. The first flight was delayed multiple times for over ten hours due to weather (which was fine) and "waiting for a customer to board." The second return flight was again delayed. The worst was baggage: it took over two hours from parking at gate to me retrieving my check-in baggage from the baggage claim. This airline was horrible. Even though the flight crew was decent, I will not return. This was my first and will be my last time flying with this airline."

Pros: "quicker travel through customs"
Cons: "was not informed ahead of time the need for a Visa to enter Australia"
