Multi stop airline ticket

Hi guys, i wonder if you all can help me. My brother is currently travelling Australia and is due back next August. At the end of next July he is planning to get married in Fiji on his way home. Myself and my girlfriend are due to fly out to the wedding. Because we are travelling that far we would like to visit a few places over a period of 3-4 weeks. Is it possible to book a multi stop plane ticket and if so where is the best place to do this?

Any other advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

You can book multi city airline tickets on most airline web sites. Just click on multi city instead of round trip. Some 3 rd party sites like Expedia also have that function available.

To search i use google flights it will show you what airlines you can book with.

You can search to and from more than one airport, to do this seperate tthe airport codes with a comma. It takes a bit of learning but very flexible.

If you are going to Fiji you may want to look at RTW tickets. I think you will need to look at Star Alliance RTW as you are going to Fiji. It might be worth speaking to a travel agent such as Trailfinders

There are flights from Sydney or Melbourne to Fiji so it may be worthwhile for you to look into getting a separate round trip ticket to Fiji from Australia, plus a round trip ticket to Australia from UK with a stopover in Singapore or other cities along the way. Compare the fares with a multi-city ticket and see which way is better.

Singapore airlines fly direct from London and Manchester to Singapore with connections to several locations in Australia. Check the airlines websites for special promotion.

unless you are familiar with booking air tickets on 3rd party sites, I would suggest you book directly with the airlines to avoid some of the potential issues that many travellers have complained about on this forum.

I used Yapta.com to search but book on airline's website directly, as Yapta also redirect the search results to airlines' sites other than 3rd party sites.

Caution with multi tix - can often be far more than individual tix in my opinion!

The only third party I'd trust in this case, as you are in the uk, is Trailfinders.

I would give fareboom and momondo a wide berth, they have plenty of bad reports in here and also they are not uk based. You may not get the lowest advertised or even available price with Trailfinders but you also will get solid after sales service. Plus, they will give pro active advice from specialists eg why don't you go to island x or stay in hotel y. Most other OTAs will just quote you a price for what you ask for they won't proactively offer suggestions.

And, once booked, things may change, you may not change anything but booking this far out airline schedules probably will, you want someone who can deal with those easily and not leave you stranded as many third parties do.

And I'm only recommending them BTW as it seem you may have a complex itinerary, if you were just flying a simple, return book direct.
