Posted: 8 December 2017 2:08 pm


A weekly round-up of the best flight deals across the net.


$29: Australia-wide flights

Fly Jetstar when you book via Skyscanner.

Jetstar's Christmas sale has landed bringing with it domestic breaks from $29 and international holidays from $99. Sample fares include Melbourne to Hobart from $29, Melbourne to Sydney from $35, Darwin to Bali from $99 and Melbourne to Bangkok from $199.

Prices are all one way and checked baggage, meals and entertainment aren't included. Sale ends midnight 14 December.

Dates: January-June 2018.

We love these flights because:

  • There are stacks of flights across Jetstar's entire network.
  • While this is a standard Jetstar sale, it also has some of the best prices around for local and international routes.
  • Flights are available over a wide range of dates.


$180: Return flights to Asia

Fly AirAsia when you book via Flight Centre.

Select Asia destinations are now on sale with AirAsia for travel during the Australian winter. Sample fares are Darwin to Bali from $180, Sydney or Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur from $299, Sydney to Ho Chi Minh City from $375 and Melbourne to Singapore from $401.

All fares are roundtrip and checked baggage, meals and entertainment are not included.

Dates: 7 May - 15 September 2018.

We love these flights because:

  • They're for the Aussie winter, so you can make your escape from the cold.
  • They're for some of Asia's most famous hotspots, including Bali, Hanoi, Singapore, Phuket and Bangkok.
  • At $180 return to Bali, they're even cheaper than Jetstar which sells flights on that route at $198 return.

The latest Qantas Fly Away sale takes you to the US and Mexico for a bang-on good price. Sample fares are Brisbane to Hawaii from $798; Sydney or Melbourne to Seattle from $1,149; Sydney or Melbourne to Mexico City from $1,199; and Sydney to Chicago from $1,299.

We love these flights because:

  • You get to fly Qantas... and pick up those frequent flyer points while you're at it, too.
  • Includes pre-summer dates when the weather is warm but the crowds are cool.
  • This sale isn't just for your typical LA flights, it has flights to Chicago, Seattle, Mexico City and Boston, as well.
