Best time to fly to Sydney?Here are the cheapest months/days to book flights

The best time to fly to Sydney tends to be during the low season which tallies with the winter months – June to August.

Timing is everything

Bear in mind that plane tickets usually don’t get cheaper closer to the departure date. Even these reasonably priced flights in the low season sell out quite far ahead of the date of travel – it pays to book your ticket well in advance. The best time to buy can vary among airlines but the golden time for domestic flights usually falls between 3 weeks and 8 weeks before the departure. For international flights, give yourself even more time: start checking ticket prices at least 2-6 months beforehand.

There is one main rule airlines’ price algorithm use: the fewer seats an airline has left on a flight, the more expensive those available seats will be. Knowing how the flight ticket pricing work, will give you an advantage when booking the next flight. Watch this video to learn about the science behind the airline pricing strategies:

10 most effective flight hacks for Australia

  1. Watch for a good sale. Most airlines publish their web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the airline sales over the course of several weeks.
  2. Avoid Australian public holidays. Prices skyrocket during holidays in Australia – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to Australia are non-existent during popular “red days” such as Australia Day (26 January), Anzac Day (25 April), Christmas and Boxing Day (25-26 December). If you really have to travel to Australia during these peak periods it's wise to book the flights well in advance.
  3. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Australia is to become a member of Air Traveler Club. It is free to join, and deals that the members get every week are priced at least 40% below the average airfare for a given route. Some of these 'hacker fares' can save you up to 80% (!) on your next flight.
  4. Find the best economy seats. Contrary to the popular view, not all economy seats on a plane are created equal. Some seats have slight advantages over others. It all depends on the aircraft, so we recommend visiting the SeatGuru website, where after entering your flight number you will be presented with a detailed seat map. Hover over individual seats to compare quality, and check out other travelers’ reviews.
  5. Book a seat in a quiet zone. Some airlines (for example AirAsia X) start to offer child-free "quiet zones" for a peaceful flight experience. Children below 10 years old are not allowed in this section. Those seats are usually located in front of the plane (bonus: less noise from the engines) with soft ambient lighting and early meal service.
  6. The 80-hour rule for Qantas seat selection. Qantas restricts access to sought-after seats to elite frequent flyers, so you may not see those seats as available during the booking process. But these restrictions are lifted 80 hours before a flight. So, if you want to snap up your favorite seat, log in to Qantas Manage Booking 80 hours before departure, check for previously unavailable seats, and change your seat selection.
  7. Avoid the last flight connection of the day. Even in the post-pandemic world sudden flight cancellations may still take place. When flying domestically, try not to book the last flight out of your connecting airport. In case of a cancellation, the airline will obviously put you on its next flight, but it will require an overnight stay and arrival a day later.
  8. Lost baggage prevention. Avoid lost luggage nightmares by removing old tags on your suitcases. Tags are printed with a barcode which is used for identification and tracking – so the old tags can really confuse baggage handlers and the conveyor belt scanners. They are one of the reasons so many bags miss their flight or get misrouted.
  9. DM instead of the call center. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the airline customer service. If the problem arises, social media is usually a faster way to contact a real human that can answer your questions. Don't count too much on airline call centers, they are usually super busy.
  10. Use SMS service for Qantas CS. Qantas recently introduced a convenient SMS service as a part of its Customer Support. It appears that SMS-es get replied much quicker than calls, live chat messages, e-mails, or even social media DMs. To text Qantas via SMS, use 0477 QANTAS or 0477 726 827. The SMS service is available to customers within Australia only.
