Internal fligts in Vietnam

I was going to catch flights between Saignon and Hoi An and Hoi An and Hanoi. But, a travel agent told me they would cost around $250-$300, does this sound right?

I also read that the airline system is not the best and delays departing may end up not being much faster than catching an overnight train (if you are able to sleep)

Is that travel agent in Australia?

Their quote is very steep and you would be better served to book direct with Vietnam Airlines. Check their website for the fares on your dates: vietnamairlines.com/wps/portal/en/site/home…

Vietnam Airlines is pretty reliable time-wise and even if a flight is delayed a little it will still get you to your destination much faster than the train.

We flew

Saigon to Nha Trang,

Nha Trang to Danang,

Danang to Saigon

For two of us the cost was a touch under $600 for 6 flights.

All of our flights were with Vietnam Airlines and the flights were all on time and no problems at all.

Our flights were booked through an agent in Vietnam (as part of a tour)

2OldDucksBrissie, the last thing I would advise is a train between Saigon and Danang/Hoi An - it's just too long and a real waste of vacation time. However, the train between Danang and Hanoi is another story - much shorter and faster, and you can ride in an upgraded class on Livitrans.

I agree that booking directly on the Vietnam Air website is cheaper and the way I do it.
