Holidaying in Australia with a discount

Any holiday to Australia can be extremely pricey, especially when you consider the exorbitant airfare and the duration that you need to stay for in order to cover the various sights that the Australian continent has to offer. In order to enjoy a minimum of 15 days on the Australian continent without denting your wallets, you need to understand how use the various discounted travel options on offer. Here are the best ways of holidaying in Australia with a discount.

Getting a cheaper airfare

A considerable portion of your travel budgets gets spent on the airfare itself. Therefore, it is extremely important for you to try and save as much as you can on the airfare. The best way to save money on airfare is to do your homework and keep track of the airfare prices over a period of time. Remember, that the sooner you book, the more chances you have of getting access to an affordable airfare. It also helps to travel during the off seasons and avoid travelling between the months of November February, as the airfare is the most expensive during this period. The spring and shoulder seasons should most likely offer access to the best airline deals for Australia.

Planning your itinerary

It is very easy to lose your focus while planning for the perfect Australian holiday. Remember that due to the sheer size of the country, it is impossible for you to cover all the main tourist spots that the country has to offer unless you have unlimited budgets and all the time in the world. You need to ensure that you fixate your sights on one or two regions at the most and try to cover them as exhaustively as you possibly can. This should not only help you save time, but also make transportation through the Australian continent a cheaper prospect. If you plan to see a number of destinations, you could also consider embarking on a cruise along the Australian continent. There are a number of world famous cruises such as the P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean Cruises which offer budgeted travel and excellent itineraries.

Managing your money

It always helps to accumulate the freebies. If you are a frequent flyer, now is a good time to make use of those miles which you have accumulated over the years. You can also plan your visits to include sights and tourist attractions such as the City Botanic Gardens of Brisbane and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Sydney which do not charge admission fees. You might just save a few dollars per person at each attraction, but when you club all of them together, you can end up saving a huge amount of money. It also helps to plan your travel in such a way that all your destinations are accessible by car. If you can plan your itineraries intelligently, you should easily be able to hire a car upon arrival and cover the entire itinerary by car. This should not only allow you to experience the very best experiences that Australia has to offer and make your itineraries flexible, but it should also help you to save a lot of money which would otherwise have been spent on domestic airfare.

Claim for your refunds

If you purchase goods worth AUD$300 from a single retailer during your travels, you can request for a refund of the GST that was charged for these items. However, in order to claim for the refund, you should have the original tax invoice with you.
