Fly super cheap to Europe from $799 return
Skip the stereotypical cities and explore somewhere new.
You'd be forgiven if the first places you thought of to visit in Europe were either London, Paris or Rome.
While we're not debating how cheap the flights to these destinations have become over the past year something you might have overlooked is that alternate European destinations are following suit as well.
Take for example Russia. Once home to tsars, this huge country is a melting pot of culture and history. In major cities, streets are lined with imposing buildings, brilliant in majesty and colour, while the countryside feels as though you're trapped in a time warp where lush meadows surround quaint villages.
Right now, flights to Moscow are comparable to fares to the United Kingdom, with return fares departing from Sydney starting from $799 on Air China. Other fares include Melbourne to Moscow from $1,038 return and Brisbane to Moscow from $1,213 return. You can check out more fares to Moscow here.
Keen on Eastern Europe? There are flights for less than $1000 return to places like Hungary and Poland.
From Sydney, you can score flights to the Hungarian capital of Budapest from $859 return on Air China. Fly from Melbourne and the price tag goes up to $1,309 return. This may seem steep but you'll be flying on a combination of Jetstar, Swiss and Thai Airways, providing added comfort which we all appreciate on long-haul flights.

Not appealing enough? Poland might hold the answer. History, colourful old towns and mountainous wonders, one could spend a lifetime here and not see it all. So, where to start? Warsaw, naturally.
Melbournites get the best deals with flights from $1,037 return on Air China and Lufthansa. Other fares include Sydney to Warsaw starting from $1,224 return and Hobart to Warsaw tickets from $1,456 return. You can check out more fares to Warsaw here.
