Webjet’s insider tips to finding the best deal


Webjet’s insider tips to finding the best deal


With New Year just behind us, Webjet has seen a spike in customers browsing airfares for travel throughout 2018. The team behind Australia’s largest online travel agent has revealed some little-known facts to ensure travellers are booking the best deal possible.


Webjet encourages travellers to consider breaking up a long-haul flight into separate one-way fares rather than one long booking.


David Galt says, “If you’re flying from Sydney to Europe, booking a one-way fare from Sydney to Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong or Singapore and then another one way to the end destination, may work out significantly cheaper, particularly if choosing local budget airlines.


For example, low-cost carrier Scoot Airlines now flies from Singapore to Athens, which travellers could add to another cheap flight from Sydney to Singapore where a range of low cost carriers are available.”


“It’s also worthwhile enjoying a night’s stay in another city along the way. In any case we recommend leaving plenty of time for unexpected airport delays and cancellations,” he continued.


Considerations for travellers should also include departure and arrival times and dates throughout the year, as airfares are known to fluctuate around peak seasons.


“Being flexible will pay off,” says David. “There’s no specific day of the week set in stone that have cheaper flights, but we typically find that international fares are cheaper midweek than from Friday to Monday.”


“Timing is also important, often a domestic flight is going to be cheaper on a Monday afternoon than a Sunday evening”.


Additionally, Webjet suggests consideration of low cost carriers that offer lower prices and regular flash sale deals with most Australian low-cost airlines now offering long haul international routes. At Webjet travellers can compare full service airlines alongside low-cost carriers to choose the flight deal that best suits their needs.


“There is no one-size-fits-all secret to getting a great deal, but by applying these small tips, it can guarantee bookers are getting the best rate possible on their chosen routes,” David Galt concluded.
