please correct my mistakes in my sentence.
A: @un1c01ngl3s

Or: "He shelled out double THE amount (of a normal ticket) to fly to Australia for his studies, as he had to fly in peak season." Though the sentence conversation by @theonlyone89 is better.

It's "double the amount." And, yeah, the word order just seemed a little off. It was mainly the placement of "for his studies" at the end cause it makes it seem related to "peak season." There are just a lot of things happening in the sentence.

"a lot of"
"There were a lot of pigeons in the sky"

"loads of"
"Loads of stuff are on your way. Look out for it."

We don't often express large quantities of something as "millions". Instead we use the terms above to indicate that there is too much to describe in numbers.
We also estimate quite a lot thus the terms "a lot of" and "tons of" are used quite often. You can still use "millions" but it doesn't sound as natural as using terms like the ones mentioned above.

"There were millions of spiders in my house".
