Four Flash Travel Sales To Flash Your Credit Card At… Fast!

Our pick of the crop that you need to get in on.


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.

Virgin Australia Mate's Rates: Mate's Rates was launched in November 2016 offering discounts for groups of 2-9 people travelling together. It's since ditched the multi-ticket purchase requirement and is now about cheap flights to domestic locations. The sale runs monthly though the date is variable.

Tiger Tuesday: Do your research over the weekend and then hit up Tigerair on Tuesdays to see what bargains they may have in-store. In the past the airline has offered fares as low as $9 one-way so you never know what may be waiting for you. Fares are launched on Tuesdays and end midday on the Wednesday.

Flight Centre's Flight Club: Hot deals are released every Friday between 10am to 1pm. Unlike the other guys on this list, it's not just all about cheap flights. Also available may be cheap package deals, hotels, tours and cruises.

Jetstar Fare Frenzy: This one's another Friday frenzy blitz of deals on domestic and international flights. Keep your eyed peeled and your finger on the pulse as they go super quick!

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.

Scoot Take of Tuesday: Singapore's budget carrier scoots passengers across the skies for less on Tuesdays. The sale runs from 7am-3pm AEDT.
