2 0 1 6 EARLYBIRDS
It’s our favourite time of year again with the European Early Bird
Airfares “ flocking” in!
This annual event is when the airlines offer their best fares for Europe 2016 which equates to some fantastic savings for you!
As most of you are experts (we have taught you well), you have thought ahead and we already busy locking in your flights on the Early Bird Airfares. For those who haven’t as yet, we encourage you to think about your travel plans for 2016 and if Europe features then NOW is the time to book!
We have listed some of our favourite airlines that have released their fares below and there are still a few more to come.
Things to remember with Early Birds…
We can only book 11 months in advance so if you are looking to travel in September/October 2016 we may need to wait another month or two before we can book your entire journey.
Be sure to check and re-check your dates as often with sale fares changes can be very expensive. Ask your consultant for the fees and charges involved for your airfare.
The advertising you see are for the cheapest fares which are usually for travel in the low seasons, think April & November. That’s not to say that the fares offered for the more popular months are still not great value and represent huge savings, especially in peak seasons.
There is usually a “round 2” of Early Birds that come out later in the year so if you are not ready just yet please let us know your plans and we can keep you up to date as new fares are released.

Singapore Airlines have brilliant fares across their network and the fares are non-seasonal. This means if you are lucky enough you can get a really good fare in high season. Availability is always very tight with Singapore so get in quick.
They are also offering Singapore Stopovers from $1. Of course conditions apply.
