Hamilton Island, Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide await.

The government's half-price fares have landed and this Jetstar sale is wasting no time getting those seats discounted.

Qantas domestic and international CEO Andrew David said, "Almost every destination that Qantas and Jetstar flies to is on sale, including plenty of chances to grab half price fares as part of the government's tourism stimulus package."

Take off on the cheapest fares starting at $32 from Melbourne (Avalon) to Adelaide, no surprise there.

Feel free to start packing your bags as the travel dates run from 1 April all the way through to 30 September.

So which seats have made it into our list of favourites?

  • Melbourne (Tullamarine) to Gold Coast from $49 one way
  • Brisbane to Adelaide from $76 one way
  • Sydney to Hamilton Island from $82 one way
  • Brisbane to Uluru from $94 one way
  • Perth to Cairns from $108 one way

Get your next Australian getaway sorted by heading to KAYAK before 31 July 2021, although we do have a feeling these seats won't last long.

How do these prices fare?

We compared the half-price tickets to a previous Jetstar sale and here's what we found. Although the starting price of $32 is only $3 higher than the benchmark of $29 that we've seen throughout 2021, you do save on some cross-country routes.

For example, the last $29 Jetstar sale had fares from Perth to the Gold Coast from $139 whereas the half-price sale has seats starting from $109 one way, a saving of $60 return.

Mr David also added that, "Most fares are outside peak times, which is when these regions need more tourists to visit. They mean more people will stay in hotels, go to restaurants, and book tours and they also mean we can get more of our people back to work".

How good are these fares?

  • Flexibility: Good. Add FareCredit at checkout which offers a credit for the value of your fare plus any in-flight extras in the case that you cancel. Vouchers are valid for up to three years from the issue date. All bookings with Jetstar vouchers will be returned if the flight is cancelled or affected by border restrictions.
  • Airline: Good. Jetstar is a low-cost airline. This means checked baggage, in-flight meals and entertainment aren't included in your airfares but can be added for an extra fee.
  • Travel time: Great. Connection times are a thing of the past with this Jetstar sale, enjoy direct flights.
  • Weather: Great. With such an array of travel dates, we recommend heading to Hamilton Island in September. This time of year offers warm, comfortable temperatures for its visitors. Keep in mind that school holiday periods are busier than other times.
