Now that Jetstar's Japan Return For Free sale has ended, rival low-cost airline Tigerair has snuck in to take the spotlight with the reprise of its $1 return flight sale.

It has been five months since Tigerair last featured this return home for $1 deal and honestly, nothing much has changed. Once again the cheapest routes available are between Gold Coast and Sydney and Melbourne and Hobart and once again, both are selling for $60 return ($59 outbound, $1 return).

Other standout fares that have made a reprise include Brisbane to Sydney for $76 return ($75 outbound, $1 return) and Cairns to Melbourne for $136 return ($135 outbound, $1 return).

The only major differences is a slight price hike for a few of its Melbourne routes. For example: Melbourne to Perth flights are $180 return this year as opposed to $176 last year and Melbourne to Gold Coast flights are $100 return this year as opposed to last year's $90 price tag.

There are also a few new routes on sale this time around. These are: Melbourne to Hobart ($60 return), Whitsunday Coast to Brisbane ($80 return), Cairns to Brisbane ($96 return) and Darwin to Brisbane ($130 return).

All flights have a limited amount of seats on sale and are for travel on various dates between 2 May and 21 June 2017.

Date restrictions apply on most routes however there are Brisbane or Sydney to Whitsunday Coast flights available for the June long weekend (10-12 June 2017).

For those who like to hunt for the biggest bargains, Flight Centre is selling some of these flights for slightly less than what Tigerair is advertising. While a booking fee of $9.95 applies to Flight Centre fares, you may find that even with this additional cost you can save more than booking with Tigerair direct. See the table below to check Flight Centre's prices.

As Tigerair is a low-cost carrier, these fares do not include checked baggage or on-board meals. These can be added for an additional fee.

The Tigerair return for $1 sale ends at 12pm AEDT on 11 February 2017 unless sold out prior.
