Cheapflights.com.au Leaves the Pouch

Popular Travel Deals Search Site Goes Full Featured

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Popular travel deals search site Cheapflights.com.au has made the move from Joey to adult with the roll out of a host of new features that make it a full-fledged travel destination provider. Part of the Cheapflights Media family, the site gives those in Australia and New Zealand a travel starting point featuring great deals from a broad range of advertisers and content in the form of travel tips, travel guides, and soon to be airline guides.

Established in 2009, Cheapflights.com.au has attracted top airline and travel agent partners, including Flight Centre, Escape Travel, Expedia.com.au, Jetabroad, Student Flights, Zuji and Best Flights. Travellers can now find domestic and international deals from these partners and others through deals search with flexible dates, date specific search and 'hot deals' on package holidays that are hand selected by the editorial team. To complement the deals line up and round up the user experience, the editorial team has also crafted and compiled travel guides of destinations ranging from Adelaide to Wellington as well as overseas locales in every corner of the world. The Cheapflights travel experts also pen the fast-growing travel tips section, which runs the gamut from dealing with lost luggage to travelling when pregnant, and an extremely popular newsletter that delivers timely travel deals and advice to a growing number of readers' inboxes.

"Thanks to the hundred plus years of collective travel expertise we have as a company, we've been able to develop a uniquely valuable site for Aussies and Kiwis in a very short period of time," said Mo Bulbrook, commercial director for Cheapflights Media. "Cheapflights.com.au combines the best of local partners and content with the power of our global travel network to help users compare from the broadest range of deals to get the best price. The result is a real beaut of a travel site for those Down Under -- especially those with a flexible travel schedule."

"With the Oz dollar going strong, we've noticed more Aussies than ever are travelling the globe, bragging about what they've seen, and flashing their cash. So rather than just whinging about their smugness when we meet them at the bar, us Pommies thought we'd give them a better flight deals website to help them get away cheaper to spend more of their burgeoning wealth around the world," said Hugo Burge, Chairman and CEO of Cheapflights Media.

Now that Cheapflights.com.au has made the leap to a full Cheapflights site, users can expect to see even more additions, including an airline guides section comprising insider information on the likes of Qantas, Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia, as well as international carriers such as British Airways, American Airlines and Singapore Air. Likewise, the deals will keep rolling in, making the site a must visit for anyone searching for great prices on travel.
