Cheap flights from $15 in Tigerair sale - starts today!

Tigerair has announced a sale on flights, starting from noon today, (Wednesday 27 July), with one-way fares starting from just $15.

The “Christmas in July” sale will see travellers get their hands on cheap $15 tickets for routes such as Adelaide-Melbourne, Melbourne-Coffs Harbour, Sydney-Coffs Harbour and Gold Coast-Sydney.

That price covers a one-way Light fare, so extras like checked baggage, travel insurance and reserved seating selection will cost extra.

Tigerair’s head of communications, Vanessa Regan, said, “Our customers prefer to spend less on their fare and have more in their pocket when they get to where they are going.”  

“Not only is Tigerair affordable, we’re proud to be delivering on the promise of consistent delivery of reliable and on time services coupled with the lowest cancellation rate of all the major domestic airlines since January 2015,” she added.

Statistics from the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) agree, showing that Tigerair is well ahead of rival budget-friendly airline Jetstar in terms of punctuality.

The Tigerair sale runs from noon on Wednesday 27 July 2016 through to noon this Saturday 30 July. But frugal flyers should get in quick - if seats sell out before this date, you’ll miss out.

But, as always, savvy travellers know to always keep one eye on the fine print. Here are some of the charges and conditions that you might need to know about before booking your cheap flight:

  • There is a per person, per flight, booking and service fee when you use a credit card or debit card ($8.50 for domestic flights and $12.50 for international flights). However, the good news is these fees don’t apply to Australian issued MasterCard debit cards.
  • If you’re using PayPal to pay for your ticket, there’s a per flight, per person booking and service fee ($4 for domestic flights and $6 for international flights).
  • If you want to book over the phone or at the airport, there’ll be an extra $15 fee for domestic flights and $30 for international. Jump online and book your flights to avoid this fee!
  • Make a mistake and need to change your booking? Expect to pay a fee and any fare difference for your new ticket.
