Score last-minute summer flights to the UK and Europe from $1,155 return

And you can fly on a 5-star airline no less!

They say the early bird catches the worm, but for those of us who like to book up to the wire, lady luck is on your side. That's because, today, Qatar has released a stellar last-minute sale on flights to the UK and Europe and yes, they include those hot summer dates.

You have from 12 June until 10 December 2018 to travel, though you only have five days to book since the sale runs only until 10 June or until seats sell out.

Flights start from just $1,155 and while this is for trips between Perth and London, fares from other capital cities to the UK capital aren't too far behind. This includes Melbourne to London from $1,175, Adelaide to London from $1,185 and Sydney to London from $1,240.

Flights to both Gatwick and Heathrow Airports are available with Gatwick coming up a smidgen cheaper, being one of the 5-star carrier's newest ports of call.

Those seeking to fly into Europe can travel from Melbourne to Athens from $1,295, Sydney to Munich from $1,230, Adelaide to Beirut from $1,375, Brisbane to Madrid from $1,300 and many more.

There's no minimum number of passengers required to fly and, as Qatar is a full-service airline, all in-flight meals, entertainment and checked baggage are included in the one price.

The only thing you have left to do is book your flight with Qatar and start packing for summer.

How good are these fares?

These fares are a scratch dearer than the airline's previous sale, which featured flights from $1,140 on journeys into the UK. Though for an extra $15 return, it's no great crime when you consider you have summer, autumn and winter to travel around the continent.

It should be noted however that these prices are for low-season dates between 27 September and 30 November and peak season dates will come with a more peak price. Play your cards right though and you can still find a reasonably priced flight for more desirable travel dates. For example, I found flights from Perth to London in July going for $1,351.33, which is still a cut above the $2,000+ return fares that summer dates can command. Just remember to remain flexible with your dates and get in ASAP for those seats!
