Smoking hot flights to Asia and London with Royal Brunei, departing Melbourne.

Royal Brunei has just launched its latest sale and Melburnians are the lucky ducks who score cheap flights to London and Asia.

You can fly from Melbourne to 9 international destinations, including London, from $379 return.

The cheapest fare we found is between Melbourne and Bangkok, Bali or Ho Chi Minh for $379 return between now and 31 May.

On the official site, Royal Brunei is advertising this route from $598 return, but we've found that you can get almost every sale flight cheaper when you book through STA Travel online.

Through STA Travel you can fly from Melbourne to Singapore for $555 return, to Kuala Lumpur or Manila for $569 and to Kota Kinabalu for $589.

If you're looking to spend some time in London, you can grab flights from $955 return from now until the end of the year.

If you can hold off, the best time to go to London is between September and November. The weather is milder and the crowds tend to disappear. All of the main attractions are still available to visit as and many festivals and events also occur in autumn.

Flights are for various dates from now until 5 December for select routes and some need to be booked by 19 March to grab the cheapest prices. They're also full service, with 30kg of checked baggage as well as in-flight meals included in the price.

Usually, the best STA Travel fares require you to be under 26, a student or a teacher to be eligible for discounts but the good news is these seats can be booked by everyone so you won't have to miss out because you don't fit in a certain category.

To book: You can search dates and book flights with STA Travel here. Sale fares to Bali, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City end 19 March. All other fares are on sale until 31 March.

How good are these fares?

A recent sale with Royal Brunei saw fares drop as low as $949 to London but you’re only paying a few dollars for almost a year worth of travel date options.

Sale fares to Asia are significantly cheaper this time around as previous fares ran for $566 to Ho Chi Minh so you’re saving a massive $187.
