Flight sale: 20% off AirAsia flights
Cheap fares to Asia just got cheaper.
Budget airline AirAsia has slashed its already low fares by 20% giving wanderlusting Australians even more reason to explore Asia.
This discount is available on all base fares offered by the airline, including flights to its home city Kuala Lumpur as well as more exotic locations such as Male (Maldives), Ho Chi Minh City, Phuket and Jaipur.
For an idea of prices, sample flights we found include Sydney to Kuala Lumpur from $189 each way, Perth to Maldives from $202, Melbourne to Phuket from $213, Perth to Bali from $129 and the Gold Coast to Auckland from $129.
Flights take off from Sydney, Melbourne, the Gold Coast and Perth and are available for travel between 26 February and 21 July 2018, excluding peak season dates.
Something to be wary of is that a few select routes have slightly more restricted travel dates. This includes Bangkok to Chengdu which is available 26 February - 25 March, Bangkok to Tiruchirapalli which is available from 26 February - 28 March and Kuala Lumpur to Wuhan and Bangkok to Chumphon which are available from 25 March - 31 July 2018.
You have until 25 February to snatch up this deal.

How good are these fares?
Those who follow AirAsia on a regular basis will know that the airline launches a 20% off network-wide sale at least once a year. However, the last time we saw this happen was six months ago, back in July 2017. So while there will likely be another chance to snap up 20% off this year, it's likely you'll have to wait until June or July until something like this happens again.
Prices are also pretty on par or better than previous AirAsia sales. For example, while January's sale featured $129 Perth to Bali flights, flights between Melbourne and Phuket are now $16 cheaper (previously $229 on sale) and flights between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur were $229, now $189, saving you $30 each way.
