We are trying to plan for a budget trip (as far as possible) to the east coast of the USA around Sept to Nov 2012. Problem is-we live in Perth Australia. Is it much cheaper to fly Perth-Sydney return and then Sydney-New York return or is there a better alternative?
Aiming to do as much of east coast as possible and a little of Canada (east side) Welcome suggestions of how to do this on a budget. Aiming for 4-5 weeks of 2 to 3 star accommodation.
Is New York likely to be busier than usual around election time?
