    I wondered if anyone could help with a question we have please??

    We are due to fly out at the start of December this year for a year travelling.

    Our route is

    Thailand (4 weeks)
    Laos (4)
    Vientnam (4)
    Cambodia (2)
    Thialand (south) (3)
    malaysia (1)
    Indonesia (16)
    Aus - Mel (4)
    Inidia (12)

    The weeeks are only a rough estimate.

    We went to Sta travel to book our flights yesterday and we have 2 choices

    Qantus £1295
    Manchester - Bangkok
    Singapore - Melbourne
    Melbourne - Mumbai
    Mumbai - Manchester


    Emirates - £1275
    Manchester - Bangkok (Via Dubai)
    Singapore - Melbourne
    Melbourne - Singapore
    Mumbai - Manchetser (we will need to buy an internal from bang/sing to mumbai)

    I just wondered given all of the above, which one is the best deal? OR will we get a better deal elsewhere OR would it be cheaper to taylor our own flights and get them as we go?

    Thanks for any help, and taking time to read this!

    Well it's only a twenty quid dif between the two tickets... both strike me as pretty reasonable value ... but the Sing/bang to mumbai ticket will cost you more than 20, so I'd go with the first ticket.
