Online booking - but we want several days in touchdown city

Hi, I usually book flights online for straightforward trips such as London-New York or London-Madrid. Simple.

Now it's London-New Zealand and we want to break our journey to stay with friends in Singapore for four or five days. But - unless I'm missing something - online booking seems to assume you will get off the plane in Singapore and then straight back on. Or off plane, into hotel, back on plane.

Is it possible to do this online or is it into the travel agent?

Use the Multi City option on the airlines website. Or use someone like Trailfinders who will know what deals are out there including stopovers for free, etc.

Most online booking sites, including the airlines, have a multi-city option, where you can put in one leg from London-Singapore, another from Singapore to New Zealand a few days later, then a third from New Zealand back to London.

The multicity facility is your best option as the others have said but also check out the Singapore Airlines stopover package as they usually have some good hotel offers:

Or... to save money, fly Singapore Airlines and take advantage of their Singapore stopover hotel deals. They can't be beat in my experience. Give the airline a call.

Thanks all, will check out the multi-city option online. We don't need a hotel as have friends to bunk with.
