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.
