Tiger Airways Sale - Eg: Sydney to Gold Coast RETURN - $40.95 (or $36 Jetstar Pricematch)


Bit of an unusual sale from Tiger, basically you pay for the outbound flight and get the return leg for just $1.
It appears that they haven't put up the prices of the outbound leg either so i'd say its a decent deal.

Travel on most routes is from the start of feb to the end of march.

I've checked the cheapest flights available on all routes included in the offer and these are as follows:

Fly from Sydney to:

  • Coffs Harbour $60.95 Return
  • Melbourne $46.00 Return
  • Gold Coast $40.95 Return
  • Brisbane $55.95 Return
  • Mackay $80.95 Return

Fly from Melbourne to:

  • Sydney $46.00 Return
  • Hobart $65.95 Return

Fly from Brisbane to:

  • Sydney $55.95 Return

Fly from Gold Coast to:

  • Sydney $40.95 Return

Fly from Coffs Harbour to:

  • Sydney $60.95 Return

Fly from Hobart to:

  • Melbourne $65.95 Return

Fly from Mackay to:

  • Sydney $80.95 Return

EDIT: Thanks to 'slippy' & 'joannatan' in the comments, if you call Jetstar they will beat these prices by 10% meaning a SYD-OOL return for just $36 each!

  • It seems to be for very specific dates for return flights, for example I tried to book HBA To Melb Weekend 1 Feb to 3rd Feb and it didn't work for the $1 return, only for the 5th Feb morning flight.

      Stay longer, Melbourne is worth it.

  • The problem is the Date !

    Good deal mate.

  • Just returned on a Tiger flight, 10mins early…, felt better than my Jetstar flight, delayed by 45mins AGAIN !!!

  • +2

    Careful on the $15 booking fee associated with Mastercard.. Visa has no fees, weird rip off..

    • +2

      Interesting, previously, no fees with Oz Master Debit, $7 with the rests and now no fees with Visa Credit or Oz Master debit.

    • Confirmed no fees with visa now, yay! (used the android smartphone app)

  • remember price beat with jetstar for 10% off :)

    • Just rang Jetstar and the WILL NOT price beat return flight deals!! They will only beat one way fares. So no match on the $1 return.

      • I just did it for two people return to Hobart with no probs. Just give them a call back and try with a different sales person.

        • Interesting - I was also after Hobart (from Melb)

      • Maybe try again and see if you can speak to someone else.. Its worked for others below in the comments.

        • +2

          Noticed the comments below, but have had a change of mind… Based on the rudeness of the Jetstar person I spoke to, I have decided to screw Jetstar and give Tiger a chance. I figure after this good deal I should at least try them once.

          I like your style

  • Hold on just bought my tickets full price for this Saturday from sydney to Gold Coast, and today just came back from Gold Coast to sydney which cost me $250! Does this deal include for this week???

    • Sydney - Gold Coast: 01 Feb 13 - 31 Mar 13

    awesome thanks so much for sharing, i rang jetstar (was surprised they are even open now) and ended up for 2 people return $72 to for easter! works out at $18.40 pp each way awesome :) i much prefer jetstar, for some reason every single tiger flight gets delayed when i book with them

    • for some reason every single tiger flight gets delayed when i book with them

      Same here for Jetstar.

  • When does this deal finish? Cheers Slippy, on hold with Jetstar now!

    Spoke with JetStar, first person said they couldn't match the flight price. So I called back, and they matched it- Syd-Melb for $37 return! Pretty good deal I would think…

    • Thats nearly 20% cheaper.. How did you manage that?

      • $41 - 10% = $36.9

        Where did you get 20% from?

        • SYD - MEL is $46 return

      • No idea. TBH, the JetStar person on the phone wasn't that helpful- but he price matched, took payment, and confirmed everything.

        HOWEVER- I just checked my booking reference- and it looks like he completely messed it up. It still says I have $122AUD outstanding to pay!? Not happy!

        What can I do? Have I lost my cheap flight?

        • Give them a call, they've probably just put it through wrong.

        • Pretty normal for JetStar price matches. I believe they do a manual readjustment, you'll still be charged the right amount, not what is stated on your booking reference - at least that's always been the case when I've done a price match.

        • Ok cool. It does say "amount owing" though, and I have not recieved any confirmation email regarding my flight….

  • I Just price matched with jetstar without any troubles.

    I got a return flight for two from Melbourne to Hobart for only $119! I paid more than that just a few weeks ago for a single flight from Syd to Melb. Cheers!

  • I just price matched with Jetstar also…for Melb-Syd return…saved 50%! Would never fly with Tiger anyway…but thanks Tiger for your offer!

  • Anyone had any luck for Syd to Goldcoast, staying for 4 - 5 days?

    • I found $1 return fares OOL to SYD on the 28/feb, 2/mar.
