Cheap flights of the week: Domestic, Rome and New Zealand

Posted: 25 August 2017 11:13 am

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


$29: Around Australia with the Jetstar Spring sale

Fly Jetstar by booking through Skyscanner.

Starting at just $29, it has all the cheap Australia flights you could want, with international highlights include Darwin to Bali from $99, Perth to Bangkok from $153, Sydney to Ho Chi Minh City from $169, Perth to Hong Kong from $167, Sydney to Honolulu from $279 and way too many more to list here. You'll have to see it to believe it.

Dates: October 2017 to August 2018.

We love these flights because

  • You have a super wide range of destinations, covering all of Australia, and going as far as Japan and Hawaii.
  • These are truly wow prices. When was the last time you saw flights to Tasmania for under $30?
  • You have a perfect range of cross-season dates for the same destination, so you can choose your own travel period.


$999: Roundtrip flights to Rome

Fly British Airways or Singapore Airlines when you book via Flight Centre.

How about those prices? You know you've found a gem whenever you see a European destination like Rome for under $1,000 return, but this deal is accentuated with a super tight price range no matter where you're flying from. If you want it, book today (25 August) to take advantage of Flight Centre's no-fee Friday, and shave a bit more off your already-exceptional deal.

Checked baggage, meals and entertainment are included.

Dates: February-March 2018.

We love these flights because

  • It's not one of those "one city" type deals. Here you can get low prices flying from almost anywhere in Australia.
  • Straight-up fantastic all-inclusive prices.
  • Rome is almost too popular for its own good, and you can do a lot more outside of peak seasons. These flights deliver, in late winter and early spring.


$142 return: Flights to New Zealand

Fly Jetstar by booking through Flight Centre.

Try to find cheaper NZ flights than these and you're going come up empty handed. But don't take too long, because these aren't going to last. These deals are on fire, and you know what they say about striking hot irons.

Dates: Christchurch in November and December 2017, Auckland in February to June 2018.

We love these flights because

  • This sale lets you can book return flights to both Christchurch in 2017, and Auckland in 2018, for less than it usually costs to do either alone.
  • New Zealand is awesome.
  • You get to enjoy an extremely consistent price range across the full range of dates and destinations.
