Things can change in a span of a year, that’s why we decided on re-writing some of the written travel search engines and give you the freshest feedback for 2016.
In this review, we will be re-talking about Flight Centre.

The largest retailer of travel in Australia traces its roots back to 1981 when it was established by Mr. Graham “Skroo” Turner, following the success of his Topdeck (another tour operator travel company). The first office of Flight Centre opened on 1982 in Sydney and in 1988 for Melbourne and Brisbane. Now, Flight Centre has almost 700 Flight Centre-branded shopfronts across Australia.
Turner had stooped down as CEO in 2002 but resumed the role in 2005. So, Graham Turner is still the current chief executive of Flight Centre.

The consultant took all my contact details down in his little book and said he would confirm quote later that day . Guess what – we never heard another word. Terrible service – will never go back”

Well I guess it’s answered. Unbeatable in providing false services and not really cheap fares to customers. We think it’s better to book with other trusted online travel agencies than with Flight Centre. Why? It won’t make things easy and they will not give you the cheaper alternative.
