Flights to London from Sydney or Melbourne down to $720 return
The catch? You have to fly on two budget carriers.
Round-trip fares to London are now on sale for a mind-boggling $720 when departing from Sydney or Melbourne.
This dizzyingly low price comes from a combination of two budget flights. This first is from Sydney or Melbourne to Singapore on a $320 return Scoot fare. The second is from Singapore to London Gatwick for SGD$431, which is roughly AUD$400, flying Norwegian Air.
Add them together and you're looking at $720 return fares to London.
Departures are available at these prices from October to January 2018. October is an ideal time to hit up the UK as it's still warm, but it hasn't hit those chilly winter temperatures yet, while December and January afford the possibility of a white Christmas. A sample date available at this price is 13 October to 5 November.
This isn't the first time we've seen this hack in action. In June, Flight Centre helped piece together the flights to bring us $799 return fares. This is the first time we've managed to get the combination priced this low.
Bear in mind, these fares don't include checked luggage. You can add this onto your Scoot flight for $44 each way and to your Norwegian leg for $90 each way.
To snap up these prices, you'll have to book your two flights separately. We found these $320 flights through Skyscanner departing on 12 October where you'll need to stay overnight to meet your Norwegian flight the following morning.
The Singapore-London leg is cheapest when booked through Norwegian Air direct in Singapore dollars. You can also search for them, as well as other London flight options, in the search bar below.
These fares aren't part of any promotion and are available until sold out.
