Europe flights from $1,014 return to celebrate Australia Day

Posted: 24 January 2018 11:54 am

All-inclusive five-star service from Australia to Dublin, Madrid, Paris and more.

Etihad is kicking off the Australia Day celebrations early with a cracker of a sale to help you explore Europe sooner rather than later.

Flights for round-trip travel from 22 January 2018 to 31 May 2018 with Etihad are discounted from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth via Abu Dhabi.

Some notable fares in the sale include flights from Perth to Dublin for $1,014, Melbourne to Madrid for $1,127 and Sydney to London for $1,181.

Altogether, Etihad has seven European cities on sale: Dublin, Madrid, Frankfurt, Paris, London, Edinburgh and Manchester. These cities are ideal starting points for travel to other destinations in Europe if you’re looking for a longer vacation.

You have until 28 January to secure your trip.

How good are these fares?

Compared to previous sales for similar dates, you’re looking at paying about $40 more than the lowest fare but these are still great prices especially for last minute travel to Europe. You would usually pay around $1,300 for sale fares with a five-star airline like Etihad.

The best time to visit most of Europe, especially Dublin and Paris, is March to May so we recommend choosing some of the later dates in this sale. During these months, there’s also a greater chance of scoring a deal on car rentals and accommodation.

In the UK, the weather is still very cold and wet until the start of May so these aren’t the best dates unless you nab some in May or you’re up for braving the lower temperatures and visiting the museums or Madame Tussauds.
