What happened to the mad foreign currency deals booking with Qantas?

I remember the old Expedia.ie deals of last year with a sense of anguish as I didn't decide to jump on. Now that I'm keen to travel, everywhere seems to all run the same pricing in all currencies. Aren't there supposed to be at least tax/GST differences in these?

Did Qantas just wake up to and stomp on this?

Anyone with any knowledge?


  • These things come up every now and then. Have a look at using an american VPN and trying Orbitz.com - you'd be surprised at how cheap some flights actually turn out to be.

    Good way to avoid the Australia tax

    Also international flights from Australia are GST free, so that shouldn't be a factor in the pricing.
