It's never too early to start thinking about your summer holidays. And if you have no idea where to go, this Jetstar sale has all the inspiration you need.

Flying out of New South Wales or thinking of flying in? There are dozens of routes here to get you travelling across the nation for a steal.

The cheapest route is between Sydney and Melbourne from $44 each way.

That's followed by these winners:

  • Sydney-Gold Coast from $50 each way
  • Gold Coast-Newcastle from $51 each way
  • Newcastle-Port Stephens from $51 each way
  • Sydney-Launceston from $56 each way
  • Melbourne-Ballina Byron (Byron Bay) from $87 each way

What we love about this sale is that travel is centred around the school holidays. Eligible dates are from 1 November to 9 April 2023.

Yes, there are blackout dates around the Christmas school holidays. However, there are still early December trips (these go right up to 22 December 2022) and late January trips (from 4 January 2023) you can catch.

If you are keen on a cheap Christmas break, there are Gold Coast to Sydney flights available over Christmas (from 27 October 2022 - 28 December 2022) for just $50 one-way. The return leg isn't quite as cheap (starting at $61) but that seriously means you could score Christmas flights for $111 return.

How good is this Jetstar sale?

Earlier this year Finder saw Jetstar take Sydney-Melbourne flights right down to $22. That said, it was an exceptional sale.

At $44, you probably could wait for better if you're looking at price alone. But considering you're getting peak-season dates, we reckon it's pretty hard to do better for summer travel.

These fares at a glance

  • OK flexibility: Jetstar no longer offers flexible fares on domestic flights. Your options are to purchase FareCredit which lets you cancel your booking for any reason for full credit or purchase travel insurance in case you need to cancel. If the reason you need to cancel is COVID-related, you may be allowed to change your flight fee-free. Contact Jetstar to discuss your options.
  • Good airline: Jetstar is Australia's only budget airline and all base fares include your seat and carry-on bags only. You can purchase extras though, if required.
  • Great travel time: All flights are non-stop.
  • Great weather: With sale fares on November-April trips, you'll be skipping cold winters and basking on hot beaches over summer and early-autumn.

This sale ends 11.59pm AEST 25 July 2022 unless sold out.
