Jade Talks Travel #20 – Online Travel Agencies

Welcome to my revamped travel podcast. What was Travelosophy is now Jade Talks Travel with some exciting changes!

My podcast Travelosophy has undergone a revamp and is now called:
Jade Talks Travel. Along with a new logo, you’ll find even greater and more useful travel content, but most importantly you’ll now be able to book the cheapest flights (including multi-sector itineraries) directly via my website → https://jadejackson.com.au. You’ll also find incredible deals like round the world flights for under $1000 or Italy, France and Spain from $948!
In the first episode of Jade Talks Travel, I highlight the dodgy side of travel including some of the travel agents I previously dealt with (who are probably in jail now) and how to avoid being ripped off by unscrupulous online travel agents. I go into detail about flight search engine comparison sites like Sky Scanner, Hopper and Kayak and how they fit in with retail travel agencies like Flight Centre and STA Travel. Most importantly I talk about how to ensure you get a great deal on your next flight, without falling victim to any sneaky traps that travel agencies and even some airlines will try on you. Links mentioned in the show include: Online Travel Agent Scams and Dodgy Tactics, check out the Book Your Travel page or download my travel booking app (for iOS) to quickly search and compare hundreds of airlines, hotels and book multi-sector itineraries, quickly and easily. The OTA comparison chart is a work in progress and will appear under the Book Your Travel tab on my website once it’s fully live.
