Return flights can be booked anytime of the month for budget prices, giving you a fantastic selection of flight deals and flexibility. But for extra savings, choose to fly back on 30 December.

Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to Thailand

It may be cheap to fly to Thailand, but these quick tips will save you even more.

  • Fly budget. Budget airlines to Thailand from Australia are a dime a dozen. Choose to fly on Jetstar or AirAsia and you could save hundreds of dollars compared to flying all-inclusive on Emirates and Thai Airways.
  • Fly into the cheapest city. You may want to spend your holidays on one of the many Thai islands, but choosing a flight direct to an island is costly. Instead, opt to fly to Bangkok, the cheapest city to fly into in Thailand, or to Phuket, which is serviced by budget airlines. Then, fly to your desired island or city on a budget airline such as AirAsia or Nok Air.
  • Play around with dates. Use Skyscanner’s date and price tool to find the cheapest days to fly on. Cheap Flights shows you comparisons for the cheapest, shortest and smartest flight itineraries based by time and price.
