Here are some tips from our Australia Travel Experts on what you need to be mindful of when planning an Australia Vacation from Winnipeg.
1/ If you are a Canadian Citizen you will need a visa when you vacation in Australia, attend a conference or are on a business trip – your Australia Travel Agent can assist you with these. You must have at least 6 months validity left on your passports from the date that you arrive back into Canada and also declare any prior criminal records up front. We advise having the visa issued prior to your airline ticket!
2/ We all know the weather in Winterpeg! If you are departing from Winnipeg Airport and traveling from other areas i.e The Pas or Brandon Manitoba then please leave yourselves plenty of time. It is always better to check in early at the airport- so you can relax- then starting your holiday to Australia very stressed out!
3/ Flying times from Winnipeg -Vancouver- Sydney Australia are approx 18 and a half hours in one direction without the stopover included. We personally think Air Canada is your best option when departing from Winnipeg due to the connection times. Otherwise, if you are going to New Zealand on a combination trip, then flying with Air New Zealand from Vancouver to Auckland then onward to Australia is the best. Avoiding the USA is best when planning your flights to Australia from Winnipeg as you are going to end up with a lot of aircraft changes and a very long day!
4/ Jet-lag always hits the worst when flying home to Winnipeg after enjoying your tailor-made holiday in Australia. Always allow yourself an extra day or two before going back to work. Trust us you will be happy with this suggestion!
5/ Always plan your vacation to Australia so you arrive a day or two early if you have a guided tour in Australia planned. This will give you some time not only to adjust to the time zone but also to not stress if your flight is delayed with connecting onto your coach tour. Of course, your Australia Travel Expert is always there to assist you if there are any problems with our 24/7 emergency number.
6/ Book early! We need time to plan and design you a once in a lifetime customized holiday DownUnder. The earlier you book the better chance you have of getting to stay in the best accommodation options and getting your first choice on small group tours. Australia can get very busy with conferences and other events these days- plus you need to be mindful of the best time to travel to Australia as well. Don’t worry your Australia Travel Expert will guide you through it all and make it very stress-free!
7/ Consider having a mixture of accommodation when planning a trip to Australia. There are some tight luggage restrictions on some domestic flights these days and if you are going for several weeks or more you will need to do some laundry. Your Australia Travel Specialists suggest a mix of apartment stays, hotels and if you are really after a treat then a luxury vacation stay in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands.
8/ Be aware of time zones! Just like Canada, not all areas of Australia have Daylight Saving. When on a flight always listen to the flight attendant to check if the time has changed. Even states that sit above each other have different time zones during daylight saving… i.e Sydney and Brisbane.
9/ Keep an eye on the Winnipeg Airport website on your day of departure! It is really important that you check and double check the Winnipeg Airport website departures to make sure your flight is operating on time. Most airlines these days do not advise if there are any schedule changes or delays right prior to a flight date. If you do discover your flight is delayed them speak up to the airline who is delaying you or contact your Australia Travel Specialist for assistance!
