Best Time to Visit Australia with Cheap Flight Ticket

Everything depends on your purpose of travelling  and  when you wish to travel.  I will like to unveil general tips to assist you in planning  your next trip to Australia
Firstly, what does Australian seasons like?

Seasons in Australia generally are stated below:
Spring: September – November (lovely)
Summer: December – February (hot)
Autumn: March – May (lovely)
Winter: June – August (cool, but not really cold)

1. The Best Time to Visit Australia:  For me, the best time to visit Australia is either Spring (September – November) or Autumn (March – May), not too hot nor too cold.  This avoids the busy Summer Break (School Holidays) and the peak Christmas traffic (most expensive flight prices).  If traveling up north to the tropics and with no other influencing factors, I’d choose to vacation in Spring, just before the wet season.

2.  Australian School Terms & Public Holidays:  During Australian Public & School Holidays seat availability on flights, tours and accommodation may be limited, unavailable or priced very high due to high demand.  Chose your Australian vacation dates to avoid the busy seasons during Australia’s Public & School Holidays.

How to get affordable or cheap flight ticket to every destinations in Australia:
3. Use comparison sites but don’t book through them: If you’re not trying to stick with one airline to earn points, comparison sites like Webjet and Zuji let you quickly compare prices from different airlines for a given route.

That can be helpful, but don’t make the mistake of actually booking through them, as you’ll get hit with additional charges.  Note down the flight you want and book it through the airline’s own site.
Always Save yourself the extra agent money and go direct.

4. Book as far in advance as you possibly can:  This is actually the most important tip of all and will influence many of your other strategies. The further in advance you can book your flights, the better the chance you’ll have of getting a decent fare. If you wait until the last minute, you’ll have much less choice and might not even get a seat.

You can’t book flights more than 12 months in advance, but if you’re planning a holiday, getting in as early as possible remains the best bet. Yes, there are very occasionally last-minute specials that might undercut what you've paid — but that’s the exception, not the rule.

5. Choose the right day of the week to fly:  In periods of peak demand, it’s harder to get cheap flights. Flying domestically, the periods I always try to avoid are Friday afternoons, Sunday nights and Monday mornings. Flights on these days tend to fill up with business types returning home and price isn't always their main concern. Conversely, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturday afternoons see less demand (though Saturdays also often see less flights).


6. Identify the cheapest payment method:  It’s obvious but worth repeating: book online rather than through a call centre or travel agent, since otherwise you’ll get hit with extra charges that are entirely avoidable. If you book using a credit card, you’ll normally end up slogged with a fee for the privilege, but you can often avoid this. Qantas lets you pay using BPAY from a debit account, as do Virgin and Jetstar through the POLi system.

7. Choose the best time of day to fly:  The most expensive times of day to fly tend to be between to me are 6a.m and mid-night. The big disadvantage of flying at 6am is that you have to be at the airport early, and that can be expensive if you can’t con a friend or relative into dropping you off.  If you’re paying $100 for the taxi to the airport and could catch a cheaper bus with a later flight, then it might be worth paying a little more for a later flight.
