Hey everyone!

I know its far away from now, but by any chance, is anyone going on the European Contrasts tour in August or September of 2012?

    no way am i booking flights through contiki… too expensive! my travel agent has given me a price for return syd – heathrow.. depart mon sept 3 and return thu oct 11 for $1989.. im gona check out the travel show this weekend for a deal though. i’m tossing up between booking now, as it is europe early bird sales.. or waiting closer for a last minute deal. just worried if i did that i wouldn’t get a flight!

    Student flights have reaally good deals but only till March 31 2012. I’m just sure which airline is best either

    im looking at emirates or ethiad because they will stop in dubai or abu dhabi which is about the half way point between sydney and london

    I got cheaper thru Contiki.. I’m only paying 1930$ with Etihad :).. Travel agent could only get 1990$ not saving much but id rather go thru them :). So damn excited :)

    did you get your flight prices off the website (by doing online booking) or did you have to contact a contiki representative?

    i’ve just sent off an email to my contiki rep so we’ll see what price i can get. we should definatley meet up beforehand. we plan to use our day before to rest before leaving on contiki. we will also have our pre-contiki meeting the night before we leave so we’ll get to meet all the other people on our tour
