5-star London flights from $999 return
Fly anytime between now and 28 December 2018 for under $1,000 return.
London is calling and with fares from three major Australian cities to the UK capital on sale, you won't have to overspend to get there.
For just $999 return, you can fly the five-star Garuda Indonesia from either Perth, Sydney or Melbourne. Being a five-star airline, Garuda Indonesia offers luxury from A to B, including checked luggage, in-flight meals and entertainment, so there are no hidden extras aside from any duty-free shopping you may do at the airport.
You can travel between now and 28 December 2018, which means yes, they include peak dates such as Easter, the school holidays and Christmas Day – though not New Year's. You'll need to get in quick to snatch these up as prices are only bound to go up as seats are filled.
Otherwise, you have until 31 March 2018 to book as this is when the sale ends.Hit up STA Travel for more details and to secure your seat to London.
How good are these fares?
We've found the benchmark for "cheap" flights to London is under $1,000 return. Just this week China Southern and Malaysia Airlines discounted flights to London a smidgen below this mark to $919 return. However, these are on lesser star airlines, and you don't get the benefit of flying during peak season.
Even if you fly budget all the way, you're still only save a little over $100 – and that's before you include luggage and meals.
So with all options available on a quality airline, we think it's fair to say this is one of the best London flight deals we've seen all year.
