We are considering getting Luxury Vinyl Planking throughout our lounge/dining/kitchen plus corridor - the quote is coming in at $120/m2 for around 68m2 That's supply and install. 

Does that sound reasonable to anyone who's done it recently?

We've been getting quotes and to be honest, if that includes laying, it's a decent sort of price, if you're getting a quality product.

Yes it's a quote for " Moduleo Select " a Belgium product which the installer says just  much easier to work with because the planks are dead straight and therefore don't buckle which apparently happens. 

I found another note I had from a home show a few months ago which  was suggesting around $180/sqm so I'm thinking we'll go with this one

Was talking to my Brother about this last night because he's a builder who's done a few of these types of floors, and I need out kitchen floor done. He said you should be able to buy the product for about $90 per/m2.
In our case we'd install it ourselves (its not difficult). So your quote sounds 'alright'.

I did our kitchen and bathroom/toilet in plastic wood look planks.  The end result is awesome, works out about 4mm thick, is surprisingly warm without underfloor heating and sometimes your plates wont smash if you drop them.

I have no issues recommending this style of flooring to others, and it doesn't feel cheap.
Installation was ok.  Fiddly at times.  Need a sharp knife and expect to have sore finger tips by the end of it all.

Ours is this exactly:

A neighbour of ours had it layed in their lounge/kitchen a few years ago and it looks good/wears really well.
It was around the $90/m2 mark as Dairyxox mentioned (I think it came from Hills flooring)
