    My great friends live in Reunion, a French island between Mauritius and Madagascar.
    Average flight price is £1 000.
    Can anyone find me a flight to somewhere where we can meet up (sort of) half way - ie approx £500 but in a part of the world that they can also get to for the same sort of money?

    North Africa maybe?
    Morrocco or Egypt? I don't know, I'm just guessing.

    Check out flights from Reunion to see where they can get to?
    South Africa?

    Fly to Reunion and get them to cough up half the fare
  6. Sensible suggestion by doomzebra.
    Other idea is to meet them in paris as there are return flights going in the £600-700 price from Reunion Is.

    Mumbai, India. Under £500 for each of you. [​IMG]

    I'm not convinced that it makes any financial sense to spend £500 to meet up somewhere where both friends will have to pay for accomodation!
  9. Mauritius or the Seychelles?

    Have a look at package deals, they can be cheaper then the flight only.

    Also you said friends, that means they are paying for flights for at least two people where you are just paying for one so I would think it might be better for you to travel further.
    What about somewhere in Africa?

    I think I am going to have to bite the bullet and pay the whole lot!
    They came here this year and last, so it really is my turn to go there next year. I might drive to Paris and get a flight from there as the price differential between London to St Denis and Paris to St Denis is just silly!
    Savings here I come ...................
    Thanks for your ideas.
