Tana to Reunion

I'm thinking about booking flights from Tana to Reunion and return. Can anyone comment on whether this is cheaper (compared with what I see using Google flights) when purchased within Madagascar? Are the prices I see on Air Madagascar's website (fares in Euro) what I would pay if I purchased in Tana?

There are usually small economies made if you pay in Ariary in Madagascar. Nothing staggering but often worthwhile. If you are not traveling in peak time so you are not pressed to guarantee a reservation, then I would wait and buy in Ariary in Madagascar. If you plan to pay by credit card though, you will just be charged the euro rate on the website, also, you will be charged the full euro rate if you buy at the airport, so, you need to go to the Analakely or La City shop-fronts of Air Mad, and pay in Ariary, to get a decent price.

Thanks gaetano207 I did but Air Austral are ~30% more expensive and the timing of their flights is worse for me. Their aircraft *may* be newer and their service might be better but is there any other reason to justify the higher fares?

Air Madagascar flights are not the most reliable, meaning they often get delayed, advanced or even cancelled. If you have an important appointment, the 30% more with Air Austral might be worth it.
