Wait seriously, Australia? For how much?!

A bucket list without Australia on it is no bucket list at all. No travel can claim world domination until they’ve set foot in the land down under, enjoying the spectacular views and vibes of Sydney harbor, or the unprecedented food scene of nearby Melbourne. Of course, the iconic beaches of Queensland or the juicy vineyards of Western Australia aren’t too shabby either. Australia is so popular, it’s hardly ever on sale (damn supply and demand), but if you act fast, you can lock in flights under $700 round trip – which hardly ever happens…

Qantas and Virgin Australia are under hot pressure from Chinese airlines, and that means sales galore! If you go the Chinese airline route, you can fly China Southern or China Eastern for under $700 round trip, with just one stop en route. If you want to go classic, you can fly Virgin Australia or Qantas starting in the low $700’s. Flights often fetch over $1500 per ticket, so these deals are genuinely exceptional. You can head jet off to Melbourne or Sydney from New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Oh, and if you don’t mind budget accommodations, you can lock in flight and hostel for $750 all in for an 8 day trip. Crazy!

Why not take some additional holiday time around Thanksgiving and turn it into the trip of a lifetime? The very best deals are in October, November and early December of 2018, and then again in February and March of 2019.
