Who does regular flash sales?

Almost everyone. What you have to look out for is that one niggling detail of when. We'll keep you posted, but in the meantime you can check them out (and join their mailing lists to be updated when and where they happen).

Virgin Australia Happy Hour: It is a thing. And it happens every Thursday from 4pm-11pm AEST. Mark it on your calendar (recurring, naturally) and make sure you've got the credit card and your leave request handy.

Wotif Flyday: Friday is Flyday at Wotif central. Now, it's not EVERY Friday, but it's pretty damn constant and tends to focus on one destination that they slash the prices down on all day long. Keep and eye out and a sense of adventure ready.

LivingSocial: Every now and again this deals website throws in a coupon code for up to 15% off departments. And yes, sometimes they do it for their travel deals. Keep on top of the coupons by bookmarking our dedicated LivingSocial coupon code page. You know you want to.
