Down Under & Under Budget

Q. I am interested in traveling to Australia from Allentown, and have two questions, What are the requirements to visit Australia, i.e. passport/visa, etc. and are there ever any airfare deals to Sydney?

A. In addition to your passport, American citizens need a visa which can be applied for online. There is a processing fee of AUS$20.

As for sales, there have been plenty recently, on United, V Australia, Delta, Qantas and Air New Zealand. With new Sydney routes this season, more competition has definitely given way to lower fares. Currently, we've posted a sale fare to Sydney from Los Angeles for $654 round-trip, including taxes, for travel through October 31.
