Popular Jetstar sale back for flights May to November.

Soak up all the action in Japan for half the price with Jetstar’s latest return for free from Japan sale with fares starting from $306.

It works the same way as their last return for free sale where you choose an outbound starter fare during the sale dates and then get the return fare for $0.

You can fly from various Australian cities to Japan on select dates from 1 May to 12 December, with limited availability over school and public holidays.

Sample fares to Tokyo include departures from Cairns from $306, the Gold Coast from $336, Brisbane from $453, Sydney from $458 and Melbourne from $481.

Both your outbound and return flights must be purchased in a single booking between the same arrival and departure airports.

These fares don't include checked bags, assigned seats, in-flight entertainment or meals, but these can be added on for a fee.

Jetstar’s Japan Return for Free flight sale is available until 6 February unless sold out prior.

To book: Head over to Flight Centre’s website to pick out your best travel dates and book a seat.

How good are these fares?

This time last year the fares were as low as $249 return so you’re paying $57 more round trip. If you’re looking at sales for similar dates, though, you’re actually winning out, with sale fares usually around $419.

The best thing about these fares is that they allow you to travel during some of Japan's best weather. The best time to visit Japan is in March and May or September to October where you get to explore the country in cool, dry weather minus the heavy crowds.

Flights and hotels are generally cheapest between July and August but you’ll still be able to find some good deals in the less rainy months of September and October.
