Score 20% off all seats and all flights with AirAsia
Everybody's a winner with this flight sale.
Whether you're eyeing a foodie holiday in Kuala Lumpur, a beach break in Phuket or a snow experience in Japan, AirAsia's latest sale can get you there for 20% off.
Or a fifth off the price.
Look at it whichever way you like, either way you're winning when you book your flight with the low cost carrier this month.
The sale runs from now until 1 July and is for travel between 1 July - 30 November 2018.
It's a small(ish) window to be frank, but one that can see you escape the Australian winter for something better.
The sale is across all seats so if you've never tried a premium flatbed on AirAsia, now's your chance to do it for less.
Sample fares we've found on the site include: Perth to Kuala Lumpur from $168 (or $689.80 on a premium flatbed), Sydney to Bangkok from $288.70, Melbourne to Phuket from $272 and Perth to Maldives from $279. All fares mentioned are one-way with returns costing double.
Book: If a last minute getaway is what you deserve/require, browse for your fares through Flights Finder for the best-priced flights for your preferred dates.
How good is this sale?
- Price: Good. At 20% off you're looking at a discount you can calculate. This is a standard sale that tends to occur every few months, with the last notable time being February. Then, flights started slightly cheaper with Perth- to Maldives fares at $202, for example. There was a larger window of dates available then too, running from February-July. While this deal is still good, it's not as great as it has been.
- Airline: Low-cost. AirAsia is a budget airline and fares don't include in-flight meals, entertainment or checked luggage. These can be added for a fee.
- Travel time: Good. All flights include a mandatory stopover in Kuala Lumpur, which you can use to break up your flight or to add a second city to your itinerary.
- Weather: Good. A lot of Asia doesn't follow four seasons but runs on wet and dry seasons, which change depending on your destination. For example, Bangkok's rainy season runs from July to October, making it a less-than ideal destination in this sale. Vietnam on the other side is good to visit from January until August as the rainy season isn't until the end of the year. For your specific destination, consult our best time guides to ensure the most sunny days on your trip.
