The Flight Deal has a great fare tonight where you can fly to Australia for less than $1,000. These fares leave from San Francisco or Dallas and arrive in Melbourne or Sydney.
From their post:
- Sydney: Valid for travel on the outbound until mid September or February, 2017 – June, 2017 for Monday through Thursday departure and returns. Must purchase at least 14 days in advance of departure
- Melbourne: Valid for travel on the outbound from February, 2017 – May, 2017 for Monday through Thursday departure and returns. Must purchase at least 14 days in advance of departure
- Please note that while this fare is valid at time of posting, if this post is more than two days old, the fare is likely gone.
I subscribe to the Flight Deals tweets and check them pretty often. I may have booked deals during work meetings. (If my boss is reading this, disregard the last sentence).
I can jump on fares when there’s still lots of availability and I don’t miss out on the deals I want to take advantage of.
I’ve shared my process of “subscribing” to great fares.
This process involves signing up for twitter. Even if you won’t be an active user of twitter, it’s a good idea to have an account to take advantage of deals on contests in general.
I recommend following them even if you aren’t in those areas because they are gateway cities. There’s a lot of good international deals–worth the effort flying out to the gateway.
