Frequently asked questions about Boxing Day flight sales

When do the Boxing Day flight sales start?

Boxing Day officially starts at midnight on 26 December every year, but a few travel companies start dropping their sales early.

Last year, some of the early Boxing Day sales came from AirAsia, Groupon and Qatar.

We recommend looking for deals in the week leading up to Boxing Day. The early bird does get the worm so the sooner you book, the more likely you are to get the best price on your preferred dates.

This page will be updated with all the deals (as listed above) as they land.

Which airlines offer Boxing Day flight deals?

In past years, we've seen Jetstar, Qantas, Virgin Australia, Qatar, Emirates and Air New Zealand drop Boxing Day sales into our laps.

Online travel agencies and aggregators including Flight Centre, Expedia, Budget Air, Skyscanner and Kayak are also worth keeping an eye on over the Boxing Day sale period.

They often offer promo codes with extra discounts. Some can even save you more than when booking direct with the airline. Plus, they help you compare prices on various sites to make sure you're getting the best fare.

I can't wait until Boxing Day! Do airlines have Christmas sales too?

Each company launches its sales at different times. Although many are dubbed "Boxing Day" sales, they may actually launch on Christmas Day or earlier.

That said, in 2019 Jetstar had a Christmas sale that launched in early December and lasted a few days. The airline then surprised us with a Boxing Day sale on 26 December.

How do this year's Boxing Day flight sales compare to last year?

While the 2020 deals haven't dropped yet, here's what we saw last year. We're expecting to see similar, if not better, offers for this year.

For domestic flights, we saw:

  • Jetstar flights from $29 each way

For international flights, we saw:

  • Asia flights from $109 each way on AirAsia
  • Europe flights from $1,109 return on Qatar
  • Flights to the Philippines on Cebu Pacific from $159 each way

How do I get the best Boxing Day flight deals?

Taking advantage of the flight sales during Boxing Day can definitely get you more more value for money, so here are some tips to help you get the flight you want.

  • Be flexible with your dates. Usually, the further out you are from the date you're planning to leave, the cheaper the flight may be.
  • Go anywhere. Don't go into the sales looking for a specific destination or you may end up disappointed that you can't get a deal to the place you want to go. Instead, have a broader range of places or settle on the simple idea of a beach holiday or city break instead. Let the prices guide you to your next holiday spot and you may just find somewhere new to love.
  • Know when the sales start and finish. We all know that sales work on a first-come-first-served basis, so make sure you're on your computer when the sale starts to get the best offers.
  • Check to see what has launched early. Just because Boxing Day technically starts at midnight, it doesn't mean the sales do too. Many airlines have end-of-year or Christmas sales that fall over Boxing Day, but are actually available on other dates, too.
  • Cut back on bags where you can. This is particularly important if you're flying on a budget carrier, as luggage is one of the biggest problems that they have. Most budget carriers charge an extra fee if you want to check in your bags.

When should I be looking for flights to get the best deal on Boxing Day?

Travel during your preferred destination's off-peak or shoulder season. While it may be a bit cooler or wetter, there will be fewer crowds and a lot more deals. Remember, peak season isn't just the best time to go – it's also the most expensive.

Check out our guides on the best times to visit dozens of destinations, where we include graphs like the one below to know when the best time to go is.

What day of the week should I book a flight?

Generally, flights are cheapest when the times and dates are not favourable. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are usually cheaper than any other time of the week, as in the example below for fares from Melbourne to Los Angeles.

As noted above, travelling during off-peak and shoulder seasons will likely be cheaper than travelling during peak times like over holidays and school breaks. But you can stretch your dollar even further by knowing which days of the week to depart on.

As long as you're not working with really strict timelines, there could be some stellar deals waiting for you come Boxing Day.

      Hello Sabita,
      thanks for the question.

      This will depend on the airline you seek to travel on. It may be a good idea to check with the various airlines websites or on comparison sites such as Skyscanner or Webjet.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.
