Flights to India dip down to $588 return on Malaysia Airlines
Colourful bazaars, ornate temples and an experience you won't soon forget.
Malaysia Airlines is churning out all the sales right now and the best flights where we've seen prices drop are to the incredible Indian city of New Delhi.
Departures from Melbourne start from $588 return and include a short stopover in Kuala Lumpur. Not only are these fares some of the cheapest available right now for an all-inclusive airline, they're also some of the fastest with flight times between 16 and 17 hours. In case you're wondering, yes, many of these are overnight flights so you can rest easy while your pilot takes you from A to B.
Other standout fares include: Adelaide to Delhi from $591, Sydney to Delhi from $613 and Brisbane to Delhi from $656. All are return flights.
Travel dates vary per departure city but generally fall between August and December 2017. You can find the cheapest dates to fly in and out using the Skyscanner calendar or by choosing "cheapest month" when you search for flights.
August and September are bargain months to fly as they fall within monsoon season, but booking flights from October onward will help you avoid the downpours and bless you with cool, winter weather ideal for sightseeing. And there's a lot to see. New Delhi is home to some of the most iconic monuments in India, including The Red Fort, India Gate, Humayun's Tomb (pictured) and Lotus Temple.
This deal beats the last notable sale to India on an all-inclusive airline, which was last month when Air India dropped fares to $706 return. If the price still feels a little steep to you, budget airline AirAsia is also offering discounted fares to New Delhi around the same travel period from $479. Keep in mind though that unlike Malaysia Airlines, you'll need to pay extra for checked-luggage and in-flight meals. If you require these, you could could see that price difference decrease significantly.
