It’s official: Boxing Day travel sales have started for 2019
It's beginning to look a lot like Boxing Day.
Boxing Day might be a few days away, but some travel sites have jumped the gun and released their sales early.
We'll be updating this page in the lead-up to the big day on 26 December so you can catch all the sales as they land.
In the meantime, have yourself a very Merry (early) Christmas.
Boxing Day travel sales that have already landed
Return fares to Europe for under $900 return? No, you're not seeing things. Insight Vacations really has brought the cost of travel down a huge notch. The catch? You have to book a 2020 Europe or Britain itinerary to unlock these airfares.
When you do though, you can expect to be pampered from A to B on either Singapore Airlines or Qatar Airways. What a life.
The sale ends 27 February.
AirAsia has ditched the Boxing Day sale this year in lieu of a Christmas week sale. Running from 23-29 December, the low-cost airline has discounted fares across Asia ready for you to make your next break.
Sample fares include Perth to Lombok from $109, Perth to Denpasar (Bali) from $149, Perth to Kuala Lumpur from $169, Gold Coast to Kuala Lumpur from $199 and Brisbane to Bangkok from $229. These are all one-way fare prices.
The sale ends 29 December.
Trip.com got in super early this year, launching its year-end sale on 1 December. Until 31 December, you can snatch up to 35% off tours and tickets on attractions and activities worldwide.
On sale is everything from Disneyland Hong Kong tickets to Metropolitan Museum of Art New York tickets.
Where are you headed?
Booked your flights but not your stay? Wotif has a cracker of a Christmas present for you. It's taking up to 50% off select hotels across Australia, including Melbourne, Gold Coast and Whitsundays.

The sale ends 26 December.
Already renowned for its dirt-cheap bargain-basement prices, Groupon has a healthy load of accommodation and experiences on sale for Boxing Day.
They're on sale now and through Boxing Day with hotel highlights being Sage Hotel Wollongong stays from $149 per night, Ink Hotel Melbourne Southbank stays from $125 per night and 4-star Astagina Resort and Spa in Bali stays from $399 for 5-nights.
Experience highlights include unlimited ride passes at Luna Park for $41 and Wheel of Brisbane tickets for $13.50.
Groupon also has a tendency to drop coupon codes for up to 15% off in our laps – so hold on tight as this might be around the corner.

Been eyeing Europe? You can get there on Qatar's 5-star service for less over December. While not a Boxing Day sale by name, Qatar's 10-year anniversary sale runs throughout December so you can snap these babies up on 26 December – or earlier if that's your game.
Think flights to Dublin from $1,109, to Barcelona from $1,129, to Rome from $1,159 and to Paris from $1,179 to name a few hot fares.
