Flexibility

Yes, it’s flexibility again (see our tips for finding a great deal). Be prepared to travel at unusual times or to different airports in order to get the best deals available on your holiday to Australia.

Off season

Travelling off season in Australia can also save you loads of money, especially if you avoid the busy and peak periods. Avoid Christmas, peak travel periods from October to February (Australian summer), Easter and busy times in June and July. This doesn’t leave you much room for manoeuvre, does it? But look hard enough and you’re sure to get good deals.

Use price comparison websites

The best way to get the cheapest prices and to check for busy times is to use a price comparison website to check for low cost flights, hotel rooms and package deals.

Buy a car or rent a camper

If you want to explore Australia on your own agenda, you can get really good deals on camper vans. Pay your fee for the rent of the van upfront, and you’ll be covered for travel and accommodation for the rest of your holiday. You’ll also have your own cooking facilities and will save loads on expensive meals out!

Another option is to just buy a car! It will give you independence and can be really cheap especially if you are staying for a few months!

Use the Australian low cost carriers

As in the UK and the US, using a low cost carrier will help you find the best travel deals around. Try Tiger Airways, Virgin Australia or Jetstar for cheap domestic flights to get you around the country.

Try Couchsurfing

The couchsurfing network in Australia is huge, and you’re sure to find someone in the city you’re visiting who will let you sleep on their couch for no cost at all! Couchsurfing is a great way to save money and meet locals who can save you a fortune by giving you advice on the best local deals and activities.

Discount and student travel agencies

Australia has pioneered budget travel for students and young people, and if you’re under 26 you’ll be able to receive great deals and low prices on lots of trips, hotels and flights.

With special prices for students, teachers and young people which are up to 20% less than standard fares, discount companies such as STA travel are great ways to try and find the best Australian travel deals.

 

Following these simple tips will, with a bit of flexibility, enable you to find the best travel deals in Australia, and ensure you keep more of your hard earned cash in your pocket to see the things that really matter.
