        • Assuming that you have saved enough money, if you want to book an international holiday, you will need:
            • Airfares
            • Accommodation
            • A way to get from the airport to your accommodation
            • A passport
            • Insurance
        • Depending on the country or countries you want to visit, you might also need:
            • Visas
            • Immunisations
        • In this lesson you will find the websites that will help you organise these things.
  • 3. Airfares
    • There are many different websites that can search multiple airlines for the best ticket. These include, but are not limited to:
        • www.webjet.com.au
        • www.lastminute.com.au
        • www.statravel.com.au
  • 4. Airfares
    • You can also look at the official airline website, for example:
    • www.qantas.com.au
    • www.airasia.com.au
    • www.jetstar.com.au
  • 5. Tip
    • If you use one of the search websites first, you can see what airlines fly to your destination, then double check their website to see if you can book the flight cheaper that way.
  • 6. Accommodation
    • You can book accommodation online, where you often receive discounts. Some popular sites include:
    • www.agoda.com.au
    • www.lastminute.com.au
    • www.wotif.com.au
    • www.tripadvisor.com.au (this site also offers reviews from other travellers)
  • 7. Getting from the airport
    • If you want to find out how you can get from the airport to your hotel or hostel, you can ask the place you a staying by sending them an email. You can also look to travel sights such as:
    • www.wikitravel.com
    • www.lonelyplanet.com
  • 8. Getting from the airport
    • Or, you can just google the question (something like: “How to get from New York JFK to city?”)
  • 9. Passport
        • www.passports.gov.au
  • 10. Insurance
    • If you can’t afford insurance, you can’t afford to travel!
    • If you don’t have insurance and you are injured overseas your medical bills could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars! Insurance can also help you with cancelled flights, lost baggage or if your airline collapses. Google insurance providers and get quotes from multiple websites.

    • Visas depend on the country you are travelling to. Check the Department of Foreign Affairs website:
        • www.dfat.gov.au/visas

        •  www. smartraveller . gov .au
