  • Overseas Flights & Interest Rates

    Hi All

    What effects does the Aus Interest Rates have on flights to UK?

    I'm wanting to get an Emirates flight to UK via their early bird deal (must leave by Mid Feb) but was wondering if the whole Interest Rate scenario would make it reasonable to buy next year (wanting to leave Mid March)?

    They were talking about things being dollar for dollar in the next 6 months, which will save you about 10% on the A$ side of things if they're charging $US. Wait till the interest rate announcement on Tuesday, and I think you'll see it go up a little bit more.

    BUT! As with most flight offers, the ticket prices increase sharply as you near the departure date, so you should take this into account.

      Don't think the interest rate will have any effect, but foreign exchange rates will, depending on airline.

        Interest rates affect the exchange rate.
