After almost four decades since Britains could travel to Australia under the £10 Pom scheme, STA Travel in association with Tourism Australia and Qantas today have announced the return of the £10 tickets DownUnder.
£10 flight tickets will be available at selected branches of STA Travel on 5th August to provide anyone with a valid Australian Working Holiday Visa the chance to get to Australia for less than the price of rail ticket from London to Brighton.
The new generation of £10 Poms will be able to fly into one of five Australian cities – Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide which means they’ll have more money to book a cheap hotel stay rather than a hostel when they arrive.
While the recession has witnessed a 21% rise in 18-34 year olds taking out a Working Holiday Visa, the £10 Pom scheme expects to provide extra incentive for young people to escape the stresses and strains of British life.
Tickets will be available from 8am on the 5th August at selected STA Travel branches in Belfast, Glasgow, London Victoria, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Southampton.
