Lay-By Your Flight

Don’t miss out on booking the flights you want ever again. Now, exclusive to STA Travel, you can simply put them on Lay-By!

At STA Travel we are serious about getting you wherever you want to go. Have you seen a great flight deal but don’t have the cash ready? Start your next adventure with just a $99 deposit**

By taking advantage of our Lay-By offer you’ll lock in that bargain airfare when the price is right and ensure you get the travel dates and times that suit you. No need to max out your credit card! All we need from you is the balance paid in full by 5th December 2014 or 10 weeks prior to departure, (whichever is earlier) and you're on your way!

Head into your nearest STA Travel store to layby your flights - flights are not bookable online.
