Layby now so you can


Here at STA Travel we're dedicated to helping our wonderful customers Start the Adventure... And our exclusive layby option does just that! We know it's hard to save for travel, and by the time you've saved it's probably two weeks before you need to leave and prices are sky high. No thanks.

A couple of years ago we got talking to our favourite airlines, tour companies and accommodation providers, and our layby scheme was born. Want to fly for today's price but can't afford to pay it all at once? No biggie, you can layby selected flights with a $99 deposit, or your flight + accomm package with a $149 deposit, and pay the rest off 8 weeks before you go. How about a tour? Layby your Contiki with a $200 deposit or your G Adventures tour with a $250 deposit, and pay the balance 10 weeks before you go.

We know it sounds too good to be true, but it's not. You'll pay no interest, no extra fees and no need for a credit card, just the easiest way to book your next trip. Oh, and this month we've also got deals on Vietnam and North America tours, Eurail passes, Fiji island hopping and your chance to win a Fiji holiday for two!

Layby your flight with a $99 deposit

Want to go on an adventure but can't afford it right now? Never fear, flight layby is here! That was lame, sorry.

But seriously, our layby scheme is a game-changer. Lock in today's price with just a $99 deposit, then pay off the rest 8 weeks before you go. No hidden fees, no interest, and valid on selected routes on a range of airlines including Air New Zealand, Emirates, Virgin Australia and more.
