to organise a flight to Australia easy and cheaply??
Wenn man sich
per websites erkundigt, enthält man unterschiedliche Auskünfte, aber
die Größenordnung dürfte stimmen. Es gibt ca. 400 Airlines und
davon fliegen ca. 30 nach Australien. Der Preis richtet sich nach der Saison.
Im eurpäischen Sommer ist in Australien Winter (und zum Teil Regenzeiten)
und deshalb sind die Flüge preiswerter. Die australische Airlines Qantas
bietet in dieser Zeit Angebote mit Flügen hin ud zurück für €
999,00. Im europäischen Winter ist die australische Saison und dieselben
Flüge werden viel teurer. Die presiwertesten Economy-Flüge liegen dann
um € 1200-1300 per Person für Hin- und Rückflug.
man den eigenen passenden und besonders preiswertesten Flug zunächst einmal
herraus ??? Es gibt jede Menge websites über welche man sich eine Übersicht
verschaffen kann. EINE davon ist ? Natürlich kann man bei diesen websites auch buchen.
von Deutschland nach Australien / Melbourne beträgt ca. 22-24 Stunden.
Es gut dort bereits ein Zimmer zum Ausschlafen zu haben !
Eine andere Information
ist die eigene Erfahrung mit Airlines. Patricia und Bernd Tesch sind 1999 - 2000
EMIRATES Airlines www.emirates.de geflogen.
Wir wußten damals nicht viel von dieser Airline und haben sie zunächst
ausgewählt wegen der guten Preise. Wir waren dann erstaunt zu erfahren, wieviele
Auszeichnungen diese Fluglinie laut offiziellen Umfragen hat und dass
sie danach zu den allerbesten Fluglinien der Welt gehörte und noch gehört. Wir können diese Linie nur bestens weiter empfehlen. Zusätzlich
mußte man ein Visum für die Vereinigten Emirate haben und in der sehr
interessanten "hochmodernen Wüstenstadt Dubai" mindestens eine
Nacht übernachten. Von Dubai ging es dann über Singapur mit kurzem Zwischenstop
nach Melbourne. Trotz dieser Zusatzkosten war die Airline preiswert und super
gut im Service.

a flight to and a bike in Australia easy and cheaply together??
Kurt Weidner BIKE TOURS AUSTRALIA http://www.biketours.com.au Kurt Weidner is not the owner anymore.
Australia + USA + Canada Organised Tours
+ Buyback (Mietkauf) + Rental (Verleih)
The German Kurt offered as the
first firm since 1982 organised Motorcycle-Tours in Australia. In the meantime
you can book organised Motorcyle- Tours in Australia, USA and Canada, rent / buy
/ buyback motorcycles / cars. His firm name worldwide is BIKE TOURS AUSTRALIA.
In Germany the same firm is known as TRAVEL ACTION as well. You can get more information
about mc-tours by his homepage http://www.biketours.com.au
You can order prospects of his tours by email in Germany: firstname.lastname@example.org
In Australia: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org Address: TRAVEL ACTION Kurt Weidner. Einsiedeleiweg 16. D-57399 Kirchhunden. Tel.
02764-7824. Fax: 02764-7938. The Dutch woman Evelyn speaks German, English
Kurt owned up to 50 Motorcycles YAMAHA XT 600 E in Australia.
Each months they start an organised mc-tour for three weeks. One enduro-tour is
five weeks. The areas in Australia are different concerning to the climate. In
total they ride eight different routes. As well the difficulties are from just
hard-road-tours to expeditions. This camping-tours are accompanied by a leader
in a service-car, who takes your luggage and buys the food. Normally this
is always smiling and very experienced Hardy. If you have friends who would not
like to ride a mc (sometimes women like this) but accompany you there are always
two seats available in the leader-car. Minimum for each tour are three motorcycles,
maximum are about 10 normally. "On the road" you can go yourself with your own
speed or in a small group and the car will come behind you and meet you in the
evening. So in reality you have a lot of freedom as if you would travel alone.
They could organise the flight with Quantas or Singapure-Airlines for you as well.
Flight costs depend on the season and are about DM 2000 to DM 2300 both ways.
Because of the season in Australia most customers book tours between october and
As well interested for you is that Kurt offers bikes and cars
for your individual tour as well. For short tours he asks for one XT 600 E
$ Au 65/day or only $ Au 1950 as long as six months (1 $ Au is about DM 1,06).
This is extremly sheap, because one flight with your own motorcycle will cost
you more than to rent his motorcycle up to six month. You can get more informations
about how to rent a bike for yourself: homepage: http://www.carconnection.com.au
The reason that inform you about Kurts firm so detailed is that we help
each other: Kurt offered in 18.08.98 Bernd Tesch and Patricia Govers two YAMAHA
XT 600 E for our Round-Australia / Tasmania tour 25.10.1999 - 26.01.2000.
We had no problems with both YAMAHA XT 600 E. I think that these are very good
bikes for Autralia. You can ride with comfort on the long sealed road and are
able to ride off-road everywhere. If you would have any problems with the bikes
you can call his firm by Tel and handy. Seeing personally his firm we liked very
much his and Hardys personal handling of his customers. So you are very well "personally
protected" during your trip.
If you want to travel by mc / car in
Australia with an organised tour or as an individualist I can recommed his firm
very well. Especially if you just have 2-6 weeks holiday do NOT bring your own
bike to Australia. You will save a lot of trouble here and in Australia organising
all this AND will save a lot of money. Just relax: Fly to Australia (Melbourne),
get your bike there, have fun riding in Australia, return the bike and fly back.
All together very easy and cheap.

David started in 1996 to take Australian motorcyclists to World Superbike and
MotoGP race meetings in Europe. But now it has been evolved into a business which
ships (by shipping container) Australian registered motorcycles for their owners
to go touring in New Zealand and the UK/Europe. We put 20 bikes in one container
and unload them at our destination (Christchurch in New Zealand and Ipswich in
England) so our clients can go touring for 1 month in New Zealand during the southern
summer and 3 months in UK/Europe during the northern summer. We also take 1 tour
each year with clients (on their bikes shipped to England) which includes England,
Wales, Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man (for the TT Festival). This tour
is for 43 days and all accommodation (B&B) is included.
