i would love to know the same thing-are there any good travel agents in london who can get great rates? i've only dealt with a couple and unless you buy into their 'packages', they don't seem to be willing to help.

You don't say how old you are, but if you're still a puppy (under 26) or a full time student these people are the mutts nuts:

Ap. If you can wait till you get here you could always try visiting an area of London called Southall. It's a fascinating place to visit, because the majority of shops and so on are Indian. It's sometimes even called Little India and I remember my dad teasing my when I was a kid telling me when we were in the car that they would have to leave me outside the area because I didn't bring my passport!

The Indian sari shops are fab (I am of Indian descent myself and have been to India many times and they are genuine Indian shops).

What I am thinking is that some travel agents in this area may specialise in travel for their local population and therefore know where to get cheap UK-India-UK flights?

I don't know how to find out which ones without visiting though.
