Hi Travel Buddies,

Fancy flying on SIA on a shoestring budget to Sydney?  Scoot, the SIA’s medium to long haul budget carrier announced Sydney as its first destination to begin flights next year, June 2012.

We thought it is a smart move to choose Sydney as there is no direct flight currently served by any budget airlines.  A quick check on ZUJI Singapore  booking website on normal airfare for two to Sydney next year June costs at least $1081 for a return trip.  Scoot maintained so far that their airfares will be 40 per cent cheaper than regular full-service carriers, so that translates to about $600 plus airfare to Sydney.  If this is true, it will be certainly cheaper than even promotional airfare from the big boys airlines.

This is great news to budget travellers like us and we look forward to the announcement of more destinations to be revealed by March and that is also when tickets sales begin. 🙂

Hi Travel Buddies,

We are quite excited to hear that Japan is going to offer 10,000 free flights to foreigners to Japan next year!

Most of you are aware that the tourism business in Japan is badly hit ever since the 9.0 earthquake and tsunami happened on Mar 11.  So this aggressive move aims to revive the tourism industry.

Subject to government budget approval, The Japan Tourism Agency said the programme can start as early as April 2012.  They hope that the selected 10,000 sponsored travellers can share their positive experiences with the rest of the world and thus, bring in more tourists.

How to apply?
