I'm traveling to Australia next spring to study abroad. I am looking to leave about 2 weeks earlier and travel to New Zealand and the Fiji Islands. I have had a hard time finding a way to plan a flight with stopovers. My University uses a company that would cost a little under $2000 US for round trip airfare to Oz with 2 stopovers. I'm beginning to think this is the best and cheapest route to take but I was wondering if anybody has had luck anywhere else?

I was also wondering if somebody could explain how exactly stopovers work? Do I just plan how long I will be in each destination and get my tickets according to my itinerary? For example, would I just order the plane tickets and tell them I want to stopover in NZ on the way over for a week, then fly to Fiji for 3 days, then fly to Oz finally? OR is there a limit on the time you can stay in each stopover? Sorry I am a complete newb to this, I have never traveled by myself before. Thanks!

hey jeff! WELCOME TO THE BORDS!



Im sure you can do better! I would never pay over 1400.00 usd for SFO to SYD even with two stopovers. I just saw a fare the other day for 1250.00 with a stop in fiji one direction and Auckland in the other. What cities did you want to stop in?

Thanks for the welcome, this board rocks. I'm looking to stop in Fiji and Auckland, LOL but both stops I would like to be on the way there so I can leave a little early and travel before I settle down in OZ for school.
