Airfare options SouthEast Asia-Australia-New Zealand-Samoa

Hello,

I have posted this on the Cambodia forum and am posting it here to see if I can reach out to more people.

We are planning a 2 month trip to Australia, New Zealand, one place in Samoa, Cambodia, Bali, Vietnam and Thailand.

We will be leaving from San Francisco.

We will be spending an entire month in Australia and New Zealand, and seeing a place or two in the remaining countries the 2nd month.

We are on a budget, and we are trying to save costs starting with the airfare.

I have been looking at the oneWorld and GlobalExplorer options, but would like to see if there are other options/alliances that will help us save money.

Thanks in advance.

alternatively your fare to Australia with the right airlines could come with a NZ stop over included....then you could fly with numerous LCC's ex Aust to (and about ) SE Asia....Jetstar have flights to Vietnam, Scoot and Air Asia will take you to Thailand, (and with Air Asia most anywhere in Asia) via Singapore or Kaula Lumpur. That just leaves fitting in Samoa.

also if you do stop in NZ enroute to Aust, try to get the onward flight into Aust out a different city to where you arrive in NZ (most probably Auckland) as this will save time back tracking and and try to arrive in the Austrlian city furtherst north or south on your plan and depart the other extreme point..

Thank you dev1236. These are definitely great options. I will in addition to the star alliance compare fares given the LCC option.

Just as a guide the past 3 years I have flown Aust-Malaysia return for about $400 each tim4. With all these deals early booking is the secret and get onto their email lists so you are first to be notified on the frequent sale prices they offer - there are rarely cheap last minute flights.
