Which airlines offer Easter flight sales?
Here are the airlines we found offering Easter flight sales last year so you can get an idea of what to expect this time around. Once the 2021 Easter flight sales are announced, we'll update this space.
- Jetstar: Domestic flights from $29 each way and international flights from $99 each way. The cheapest domestic flight was Melbourne (Avalon)-Hobart and the cheapest international flight was Darwin-Bali. Other destinations included New Zealand, Vietnam, Singapore and Thailand. (See more details.)
5 tips to finding cheaper Easter flights
- Book as early as possible. Supply and demand rules the skies, and as seats fill up the prices rise. You can't count on a last minute sale for the flight you want any more than you can depend on a lottery ticket. Book as early as possible to get prices while they're low for the taking.
- Choose the right day and time of day. This is particularly important for flying domestically. Weekends, Mondays, Fridays and morning are often pricier, and Tuesdays and Wednesdays tend to be the cheapest days to fly. While they aren't part of the Easter weekend, extending the long weekend won't just get you more vacation time, but can save you money.
- Subscribe to flight sale emails. Book earlier by getting deals delivered to you instead of having to wait until you find the time to go hunting, and maybe even get some near-exclusives that are hard to find by yourself.
- Plan your luggage. With most airlines, your luggage can't fly for free any more than you can. Trying to get away with carry-on only is usually the cheaper bet, as long as you're careful with the size and weight limits.
- Look for any differences in payment method. BPAY, card, direct transfer and a host of other online payment methods are available depending on the carrier. Sometimes fees will apply for certain transactions, which can make a considerable difference. Depending on where you're going, and how you booked the flight, plane tickets can also get pricey, which presents a good opportunity to rack up a rewards card score.
