Read on to see how your next Koogle ride could very well be the gateway that takes you from lockdown to holiday town.

  • Do Your Research

    It’s more than likely that a number of things would have changed since you last traveled. From checking in your bags at the terminal, to understanding any newly-introduced airline restrictions that have come into effect since the global pandemic, it never hurts to go through what’s available online, so you don’t get caught out before you even board your next flight. Are hand sanitiser bottles allowed in your hand-carry luggage? What is the mask-wearing requirement on your flights? All this information can be readily found when you next make your travel booking, so be sure to understand what the ‘new normal’ is before you fly.

  • Be Aware of Any Hidden Costs

    It’s easily understood how excited you are to travel out of Australia for that next holiday. But before you go trigger happy with booking that next flight away, remember to understand any additional costs that may be involved with your return flight. At the moment, return flights back to Australia are seen to be priced slightly higher than outbound tickets. Additionally, you may have to consider any need within your state or territory that involves mandatory quarantine practices upon your return. As with point 1, it never hurts for you to be aware of these developments before you travel!
