Can't see flights to Japan till 2024.
[/QUOTE]

I really hope you are wrong re Japan or overseas travel. I am hoping that if people are vaccinated they will be able to fly overseas and isolate in their own home on return. Perhaps I am being optimistic, but American tourists who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be able to visit the European Union over the summer is such an example.

I made a typo there for the year ...., I really meant northern hemi' winter '22/23.
I have a guy at my work and his wife owns a travel agency and she feels that until all the Airlines come back on board (ie competition) like before CV19, International airfares will be really expensive.

I really really miss going to Japan.

I'd imagine heaps of Aussies will travel to NZ this Winter.

I tried to convince a few friends to take the flight over to NZ, but most are skittish on the prospect of the borders closing - even temporarily - throwing their annual leave plans out of whack.

Hell, some of my business partners can't even get FIFO workers into WA from QLD because they're too scared of border closures happening internally. Until we have a long period of internal states remaining open to all regions even if a minor outbreak occurs, I don't see the NZ market taking off too quickly for your average worker.

Yeah, my company actually put me on 14 days paid leave/standby after completing some work over in QLD a few weeks back. There were no isolating restttrictions put on me; however they were worried WA may lock me out or anyone I had close contact with.

I have friends going to NZ skiing, but yes, only NSW residents can feel safe about getting back into their state if they even go interstate as the other states are ridiculously quick to panic and shut down everything. NSW just gets it done without feeling the need to show off how 'careful' they are. NZ will be very busy I suspect as will Australian ski resorts. There is NO covid here, if 50,000 people can go to a footy match they should be able to go skiing. I hope common sense prevails.

Just hope that this year the lift restriction will be eased.

Make it mask up, but lifts run at capacity.

And here we go... 2 cases in Sydney, and NZ has closed the flights from here. QLD and WA also placing restrictions? Seems like an easy way to plan a holiday.

Yep, overseas travel at present is mega risky until this is all cleared up worldwide.

Can I use my Epic Australia - buddy passes for my daughter for 6 days straight at Falls Creek does anyone know and is this done online prior or each day on the mountain?

Sucks that the pricing hasn't been released for FC day lift tickets yet the Epic Australia pass price rises tomorrow.

I have done this before for a mate, you log into your dashboard (Perisher account) and it gives you the option to email the person who you want to give the discount to. I assume they just get a code or something in their email and apply it at checkout or maybe its a direct link.

Qantas has the best deals going on lift passes for Treble Cone/Cardrona. Gotta get before May 31st. $429 for 6 days. Way cheaper than buying from resort. Even better if you got FF. points 56000 for 6 days.
