Some very cheap fares are popping up for travel in 2018 thanks to airline ‘boxing day sales’.

If you’re considering a trip next year, this could be your chance to save money on fares.

Here’s what I’m seeing right now:

  • Qatar Airways has super cheap companion fares to Europe from just $915 per person for travel from 21 January until 22 May 2018.
  • Qatar Airways also has cheap solo fares to Europe: the cost is a little higher to the sale above – use momondo to search for the cheapest dates.
  • Thai Airways is offering Perth/Sydney/Melbourne to Rome, Italy from $980 with limited availability in May and June 2018. Use momondo to search and play around with the calendar bar chart to find the cheapest days to fly.
  • Emirates also has a few bargains on offer, like Sydney to Birmingham (UK) for $1279 return or Perth to Dublin for $1179 (for travel 18 Apr 18 – 07 Jun 18.)
  • British Airways also has cheap flights to Europe, like Sydney to Barcelona for $1268 for travel until 31 October.
  • For business class travel, Finnair has very good fares to Europe starting at ~$5500 return.
  • Air New Zealand has launched a 48 hour sale with flights to the USA and Canada for as low as $899 return (and even cheaper to Honolulu) for travel from April to June.

I’ll update this post as new deals are announced.

Happy travels!
