Web travellers find best fare deals

Airlines are offering their best discounts on airfares to customers who purchase over the Internet.

FlightChoice's examination of the websites of the four main domestic carriers, Qantas, Ansett, Impulse and Virgin Blue, has revealed that all now contain cheap fares not available through any other channel. Often these low fares are not part of any formal promotion by the airline and are not publicised.

After negotiations with the airlines, FlightChoice is now able to display these fares in our tables – the only website to offer full independent comparison of the best discount fares on offer. We now show the cheapest fares for both internet purchase and for general purchase via phone direct to the airline or through a travel agent, as well as the full economy fare.
