Our aim at Flight Sale is to make purchasing online travel easier, by linking direct to awesome travel deals, flight sales and other travel products, ready to book – for the independent traveller.
However, since building this website, we have also registered as an independant travel agency so that we can make bookings for tricky products like round the world tickets and cruises. If you book direct with Flight Sale Elite – our travel agency – then you will receive an invoice from us and we are acting as the agent.
If you click on a link, on this website and find yourself on another external website, then chances are you will not be booking direct with us.
This website uses affiliate links, provided by third parties such as Travelpayouts, and also occasionally including direct suppliers of travel products. These links provide a potential commission for any purchase or in some cases clicks made by you (similar to an online travel agent) but at no further cost to you. Not every link is an affiliate link. For more information about affiliate links, read ‘why book via this site‘. Any income derived from links is simply to sustain this website as it costs real money to keep it going with hosting fees, domains, website maintenance and associated subscriptions.
Every supplier of travel products has their own terms and conditions and it’s really important you read their terms and conditions to ensure you understand the agreement you are making with the supplier, when purchasing ANY travel product. Not an endless list but some sections to look out for and ensure you understand when reading terms and conditions include:
- Refunds – what is their system and policy for refunds? Do they allow refunds?
- Cancellations – what is their process for changes and cancellations? Does the airline, hotel or specific airfare you are purchasing allow cancellations?
- Credit card fees – How much do they charge for using credit cards? Is it a % of the booking or a flat fee?
- Where is the business located? Is it in Australia, USA, Spain, the UK or elsewhere? This is important because the applicable rules of that country applies when it comes to complaints or disputes.
- What is their complaints process?
- What currency are the prices displayed in? It is very easy to presume a website is displaying Australian dollars when you’ll actually be charged in US dollars which makes it more expensive.
- What service fees do they have? Are their any unexpected charges you could face for cancellations or refunds or changes? Some companies charge a service fee just to email customer service.
- Note that where an airline may offer unlimited date changes, this may not apply if you booked via an online travel agent or third party website
If you have any questions about terms and conditions of a third party, you should ask them first to clarify, but if you need to, you can contact us with questions you may have about travel.
Many online travel agents are owned by physical travel agencies. For example, Fly with Betty and BYO Jet are owned by Flight Centre Ltd which has physical stores. These online only companies often have their own terms and conditions, seperate from the parent company. Never presume that because you booked through an online travel agency that the physical store will assist you with any enquiries.
The Flight Search Tool and Cheap Flight Comparison Tool you’ll find on this website are provided by Jet Radar. Information is presented via api’s (an api allows two websites to talk to each other) by both airlines and online travel agents which includes flight prices, baggage allowances and more. All prices and inclusions presented are provided ‘as is’ and in ‘good faith. Prices and inclusions are only confirmed, when you make a confirmed reservation, provide your credit card details to either the airline or the online travel agent and receive a flight booking confirmation and e-ticket.
We do not choose which airlines or online travel agents are displayed in search results on this website. Instead, multiple airlines (including budget airlines) and online travel agent options are presented, giving you the option to choose the airline, flight price, flight times and/or online travel agent which suits your needs, budget and preference best.
Always read the terms and conditions of any travel product you are purchasing and if it doesn’t seem right, find an alternate supplier.
We offer advice and suggestions which you are free to use or not use based on your own needs, budget and expectations.
We make direct bookings on behalf of our customers when trading as Flight Sale Elite and will invoice you as such.
Before booking any travel, check the latest health and safety advice from your government.
We hope that by being transparent with our operations, we gain your trust and that you’ll recommend us to your friends.
We’re forever growing and we have big plans to make booking travel even easier.

The Flight Sale Team.
