I got 2x 50 Euro vouchers from KLM with expiry dates 15/1/14 and 22/1/14. One was from the cancelled outbound flight to Dubai, the other from the heavily delayed return flight (which meant I missed my UK connection and spent 7h at Schiphol !!!)

The cheapest UK-Amsterdam fare with KLM is 79 quid so all but covers this. Can't actually book it yet as want to return 9th Jan 2014 and KLM booking system not open that far yet!


Cheers mate have now found my 50 eurp KLM voucher so this is an option

Thanks as well Bodds, I'll be sure to check out the Brazil site before booking anything

Got mine via Asiana Airlines on Expedia for £900. Flying out December 28th and back Jan 16th, so hoping to pick up the Sydney test and maybe an ODI or two. Flight back has a 19 hour overnight conneection in Seoul. That could get messy.

If you dont mind travelling on the Asian equivalent of Ryan Air, then Air China is dirt cheap. Saw a return LHR to Sydney via Beijing for £830.

Anyone after a good deal/on a tight budget and looking to do just Melbourne and Sydney then following is available:

LGW-Kuala Lumpur Return with Turkish Airlines Dep: 18th Dec Ret: Jan 13th Fare: £524

KL-Melbourne with Air Asia 20th Dec: £150 (inc 20kg baggage)

Sydney-KL with Air Asia 12th Jan: £235 (inc 20kg baggage)

Melbourne to Sydney 31st Dec with Tiger for £45 (inc 20kg baggage and fees)

£960 Total is not bad for those tests/dates inc Melbourne to Sydney internal flight.

Used Skyscanner for the LON-KL flights.

Air Asia book direct.

Best open jaw flights (into Melbourne out of Sydney) with a decent airline, Malaysian, around those dates coming up at about £1370 at moment.

Booked my flights and accommodation 10 days ago, thought I would book as early as I could as I noticed prices were rising as time went on.

Fly from LHR to Adelaide on 01 Dec with Singapore Airlines, then back from Perth on 21 Dec (prices for these flights have already risen since I booked).

Looking at the exchange rate just have to spend the rest of the year saving for my beer money now?! ;)

In fact I've just done another search:

LGW - KL 18/Dec 1530 - 19/Dec 1715 (spend a few days in KL, which I don't mind)
KL-Melbourne 24/Dec 1320 - 25/Dec 0010 (£119)
Sydney - KL 12/Jan 1155 - 12/Jan 1720 (£215)
KL-LGW 13/Jan 2330 - 14/Jan 0950 (£511)

All in = £845.
Gatwick is my local airport too which is a bonus - I've just put my holiday request in.

We booked to fly Heathrow - Adelaide on 4th December & Sydney - Heathrow on 4th January with Singapore Airlines for £816 each back in January, so we were lucky to get it so cheap.

Same flights are now £1282, so getting exepnsive for anyone who hasn't booked yet.

About £930 with all the fees, about five hundred quid cheaper thani was anticipating and i get a good few days in malaysia to perhaps do a bit of travelling. Jobs a goodun, time booked off work, just need tickets now. My sister in aus has already signed up to the aus cricket famiy so hopefully that will work out alright.

Get yourself up to Langkawi in Malaysia - great spot for a few days if you like the beach chill out scene!
