Posted: 22 August 2017 7:30 pm


Whip out those credit cards, travellers, because one of the biggest sales events of the year has just started!

On your marks, get set… shop!

The annual 24-hour Click Frenzy™ Travel deals bonanza kicked off at 7pm with hundreds of discounts, holiday packages and exclusive offers were released from some of our favourite airlines, booking agents, tour operators and travel-gear stores boasting deals of up to 72% off. But only until 7pm tomorrow.

With so many offers and discounts to trawl through in such a short space of time, it can be overwhelming to uncover the best and snatch them up before the promotion ends.

But never fear. We, the savvy travellers at finder.com.au, have done the sifting for you and uncovered the best of the best destined to sate your wanderlust.

Because Click Frenzy™ Travel deals are undoubtedly great. But we reckon it’s true to say that some deals are definitely better than others.

Here are our favourites:

Virgin Australia: Up to 55% off flights

What’s the deal? Get up to 40% off domestic flights and up to 55% off international flights. Select routes only.

Why we love this deal:

  • Domestic flights start at $69 each way and international flights are as low as $185, which are pretty impressive numbers for Virgin Australia.
  • As a full-service airline this deal ensures checked-in baggage, in-flight meals and entertainment for a fraction of the price.
  • Discounts are across domestic and international flights, so the world is your oyster.

Qatar Airways: 10% off flights

What’s the deal? 10% off economy and business class flights

Why we love this deal:

  • Business class is expensive already, so getting 10% off is a pretty sweet incentive to upgrade yourself, especially on a long flight.

G Adventures: 30% off select worldwide tours

Why we love this deal:

  • These are some of the biggest discount we’ve seen offered by G Adventures, which typically offers 10-20% off.
  • Discounts are across tours worldwide, not just specific countries or continents.
  • You only need to pay a deposit of $250 to secure your booking. Full payment isn’t required until 60-days prior to your departure.

What’s the deal? Stay five nights for the price of four at Hamilton Island. With this deal, travellers also receive $100 resort credit, daily buffet breakfast and free use of non-motorised water sports.

Why we love this deal:

  • Staying at Hamilton Island in general is expensive, so any bargain we see to this Aussie paradise is a good one
  • Kids 12 and under stay and eat free
