...and there's plenty more discounted domestic flights.

Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

At the stroke of midnight last night budget airline Jetstar celebrated its 13th birthday by releasing a return for free sale on many of its domestic and international routes.

Naturally, upon hearing the news rival Tigerair wanted in on this party. Today, it's delivered presents galore in the form of cheap domestic flights as part of its We've Brought the Presents sale.

With outgoing one-way flights starting at $35 (Hobart-Melbourne, Gold Coast-Sydney), Tigerair looks set to steal some of Jetstar's birthday limelight. Other notable fares include Sydney-Melbourne from $45, Melbourne-Perth from $95 and Perth-Brisbane from $109.

Compared to Jetstar's return for free sale, most of Tigerair's flights are slightly more expensive. However, there are a few fares that Tigerair is doing better. For example, Whitsunday Coast to Brisbane is $39 each way with Tigerair ($78 return) which is $7 less than Jetstar's $85 return fare. Whitsunday Coast to Sydney is $49 each way with Tigerair ($98 return), a mere dollar less than Jetstar's $99 return fare. Sydney to Perth is $99 each way ($198 return), which is again, a dollar behind Jetstar's $199 return flights.

To its benefit, Tigerair has routes on sale that Jetstar doesn't offer, such as Perth to Brisbane.

Similar to Jetstar's sale, these fares are for travel between October and December 2017, with blackout periods during the school holidays.

Tigerair's We've Brought the Presents fares don't include checked bags, assigned seats, in-flight entertainment or meals, but all can be added for additional fees.

The sale ends at 11:59pm on Wednesday 25 May, 2017.
