Stephanie Yip 9 June 2017 NEWS


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


$29.50: Domestic flights when you travel in pairs

Fly Tigerair when you book via Flight Centre.

Sample fares include Hobart to Melbourne from $59 for two people ($29.50 per person), Sydney to Melbourne from $79 ($39.50 per person), Brisbane to Cairns from $95 ($47.50 per person) and Perth to Sydney from $189 ($94.50 per person). These are one-way fares.

Checked baggage, meals and entertainment not included.

Dates: October-December

We love these flights because:

  • Part of a 2-for-1 sale, you are pretty much flying for 50% the normal fare when you pair up
  • Over 24 domestic routes are available to fly
  • These flights are in spring, so the weather will be warming up in most destinations


$467: Fly return to Maldives

Fly AirAsia when you book via I Want That Flight.

Sample fares include Perth to Maldives from $467, Melbourne to Maldives from $550, Sydney to Maldives from $555 and Gold Coast to Maldives from $555 return.

Checked baggage, meals and entertainment are included.

Dates: February-March 2018

We love these flights because:

  • These flights are for travel during peak season, which is when the weather in Maldives is at its most idyllic
  • Maldives is home to 10-12 different species of whale and dolphin, making it a snorkeller's and diver's paradise


$838: Return flights to Vancouver

Fly Philippine Airlines when you book via I Want That Flight.

Sample fares include Melbourne to Vancouver for $838 return, Darwin to Vancouver for $845 return, Sydney to Vancouver for $850 return and Brisbane to Vancouver from $852 return.

Checked baggage, meals and entertainment are included. Flights include a stopover in Manila.

Dates: October to November.

We love these flights because:

  • They're during autumn, so you'll get all that beautiful fall foilage.
  • While they're not direct, they're around $400 cheaper than if you flew direct on Air Canada.
  • Philippine Airlines has in-flight Wi-Fi, so you won't feel disconnected from the world, even when you're flying above the clouds.
