Oz Flights For A Tenner!

 

Updated : Aug 5, 2009

Bargain hunters camped outside a London travel agent for three days to buy £10 flights to Australia-a deal that would be right at home on VeryHappyPigs Deal Stye.

The would-be travellers set up camp outside the offices of STA Travel in Victoria on Sunday, three days before the promotion began, reports the Daily Telegraph.

First in the queue for the '£10 Pom' promotion were friends Rosie Emeny, from Romford, Essex, and Ashleigh McPherson, both 22, from Chadwell Heath, east London.

Miss Emeny, a sports science graduate, said: "We have been quite lucky with the weather and we are absolutely loving being first in the queue.

"The tickets will be saving us about £600 - this was too good an opportunity to give up. I wanted to go to Australia anyway and we heard about this at around the same time. Anyone who thinks we are mad for camping out is just jealous!"

Miss McPherson, a politics graduate from Nottingham University, said: "The atmosphere has been really good and everyone has been really friendly. We have passed the time playing cards and reading."

Alice Edwards, 18, from Amersham, who plans to go to university in Australia, said "It is a once in a lifetime opportunity - it's just amazing. You won't get an offer like this every week.

"Camping out might seem a bit extreme but it has been a really good laugh. It has been a real festival atmosphere - everyone has been having a few drinks and enjoying themselves.

"People have made friends in the queue - a few of us are planning to meet up once we are out there."

Thousands of Brits took advantage of £10 assisted passages to migrate en masse to Australia by boat in the 1950s and became known Down Under as £10 Poms
