Tigerair are offering two-for-one domestic flights across Australia, which means you can purchase one fare and get the second fare for free. If getting in a giant metal box with wings and travelling across Australia is on your agenda any time soon, then this Tigerair deal is worth considering.
Tigerair are currently running their ‘2FOR1’ promotion, allowing you and a mate to fly between major Australian airports on the cost of a single return ticket. If you buy a Light Fare, you will get a second Light fare for free! To redeem, you will need to book a flight between July 24, 2018 and September 20, 2018 and enter the code ‘2FOR1’ during the checkout procedure.
Some terms and conditions apply: You must book for a minimum of two people per booking, so solo travellers will want to look elsewhere. The only eligible fare is Tigerair’s ‘Light Fare’, which includes 7kg of carry-on baggage, but no checked bags. Checking in luggage will cost you anywhere between $15 and $37, depending on how much you need. Fares are non-refundable.
The sale ends at 12pm November 4 so you only have a couple of days to plan and book your next flight – and maybe even less time than that because these deals usually sell out pretty quick.
You might be thinking “Tigerair is terrible and I do not want to fly with them anyway” and that’s fair enough. A couple of years ago, Spandas Lui looked at Tigerair to see if they’d improved their service and found that it wasn’t a horrible experience. More recently, I’ve flown Tigerair to get to and from AFL games in Melbourne and only last weekend to get to PAX Australia and found that it was relatively smooth sailing. The boarding procedures are as streamlined as they can be but I experienced a few delays because of late arrivals.
My golden rule: If you have the time to spare, go Tigerair (that’s a rhyme I made up that’ll help you).
If you really want to avoid Tiger, you could always try and fly a similar route with Jetstar for cheaper with /” target=”_blank”>Jetstar’s Price Beat Guarantee. I’ve tried this before and it’s a bit hit and miss, but it’s worth a shot if you simply cannot stand Tigerair.
