Thanks to good ol' inflation and a looming global recession, life has been getting pretty expensive lately, and travel may seem out of reach. But thanks to our friends at Jetstar, you don't have to table your dreams of going on holiday – the budget airline has just announced a 'fly a friend free' package that lets you bring a mate along on your trip for zero dollars.
Here's how it works: you book a holiday package in which you get flights, accommodation, transfers and (quite often) a buffet breakfast (in, say, Adelaide or Bali) – and for every full-paying customer, one gets to come along for zero dollars. A whopping 52 domestic and international destinations are available, including the Whitsundays, Bali, Port Douglas, Melbourne, Darwin, Cairns and Hamilton Island. There are just a couple of caveats: you only get to choose from the listed dates, and once you've booked, it looks very hard to change – so we advise that you make sure you’re 100 per cent before clicking 'purchase'.
This can be a couples thing, a you-and-your-mum thing, or a long-overdue friend getaway for that pal of yours who does more for you than any ol’ lover ever could – although you’ll both have to travel on the same flight and stay in the same room in whatever bedding configuration is available, so just make sure you’re going with someone you really like. And you're gonna need to move quickly, as the deal ends on January 30.
