Brits camp out for £10 flights to Australia
« on: August 21, 2009, 02:02:02 AM »
A London travel agent that was offering £10 flights to Australia got a surprise, when would-be travellers set up camp outside three days before the offer started. Bargain hunters started camping outside STA Travel in Victoria on Sunday, with friends Rosie Emeny and Ashleigh McPherson first in line.

Talking about their camping experience, one of the girls said: “We have been quite lucky with the weather and we are absolutely loving being first in the queue”.

Adding that, “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!”

The happy campers passed the time playing cards and reading, with another camper saying: “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”.

A similar scheme was introduced in the 1950’s, where thousands of Brits took advantage of a £10 assisted passage to Australia by boat, earning them the nickname of £10 Poms.
