In an offer almost too good to be true, British travellers will soon be
able to fly to Australia for less than the price of a guide book.

In a take on the term [PndStlg]10 Pom, originally coined
to describe British citizens who migrated to Australia after World War
II, the scheme will allow Brits to travel Down Under for just
[PndStlg]10 (NZ$26.00).

The move to boost the tourism
industry will see 150 Qantas tickets to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth,
Brisbane or Adelaide available for anyone with a valid Working Holiday

Travellers will be able to return home whenever they wish.

limited tickets will be available from STA Travel outlets across
Britain on August 5 on a first-come, first-served basis. The fare is
available for departures between August 15 and September 30 and
November 1 to 30.

Would-be travellers are being encouraged
to camp out for the tax- inclusive tickets, which are expected to be
snapped up within hours. Those who miss out will be offered special
Qantas return airfares at [PndStlg]679 (NZ$1700).

STA Travel group managing director John Constable said people were looking for good-value holidays in the current climate.

it doesn't come much better than Oz for just a 'tenner'," he said. "The
[PndStlg]10-Pom is an opportunity for Brits to experience all that
Australia has to offer, from working a vineyard in Margaret River to
learning to surf on Bondi Beach."

More than 35,000 young
Brits travel on the working holiday programme each year, Tourism
Australia's UK/Europe general manager Rodney Harrex said. "The original
10-pound Pom assisted passage scheme resulted in a British fascination
with the faraway land of Oz that has endured ever since."

It was hoped the offer would bolster awareness of the programme, he said.SavedURI :Hide URLdata:text/html;charset=utf-8,%3C!*font-size%3Asmall%3B*font%3Ax-small%3B%20%7D%20a%2C%20a%3Avisited%2C%20a%3Ahover%20%7B%20color%3A%20blue%20!important%3B%20text-decoration%3A%20underline%20!important%3B%20cursor%3A%20text%20!important%3B%20%7D%20.warning-localfile%20%7B%20border-bottom%3A%201px%20dashed%20red%20!important%3B%20%7D%20.yui-busy%20%7B%20cursor%3A%20wait%20!important%3B%20%7D%20img.selected%20%7B%20border%3A%202px%20dotted%20%23808080%3B%20%7D%20img%20%7B%20cursor%3A%20pointer%20!important%3B%20border%3A%20none%3B%20%7D%20body.ptags.webkit%20div.yui-wk-p%20%7B%20margin%3A%2011px%200%3B%20%7D%20body.ptags.webkit%20div.yui-wk-div%20%7B%20margin%3A%200%3B%20%7D%3C%2Fstyle%3E%3Cstyle%3E.yui-hidden%20font%2C%20.yui-hidden%20strong%2C%20.yui-hidden%20b%2C%20.yui-hidden%20em%2C%20.yui-hidden%20i%2C%20.yui-hidden%20u%2C%20.yui-hidden%20div%2C.yui-hidden%20p%2C.yui-hidden%20span%2C.yui-hidden%20img%2C%20.yui-hidden%20ul%2C%20.yui-hidden%20ol%2C%20.yui-hidden%20li%2C%20.yui-hidden%20table%20%7B%20border%3A%201px%20dotted%20%23ccc%3B%20%7D%20.yui-hidden%20.yui-non%20%7B%20border%3A%20none%3B%20%7D%20.yui-hidden%20img%20%7B%20padding%3A%202px%3B%20%7D%3C%2Fstyle%3E%3Cstyle%3E%2F*%20No%20Extra%20CSS%20*%2F%3C%2Fstyle%3E%3C%2Fhead%3E%3Cbody%20onload%3D%22document.body._rteLoaded%20%3D%20true%3B%22%3E%3Cbr%3E%3C%2Fbody%3E%3C%2Fhtml%3E
