If you’ve been planning a long-awaited international trip, now might be the right time thanks to Jetstar.

As reported by news.com.au, the Aussie airline has announced a handy sale on flights to international hotspots. The Book-a-break sale, which started at midnight, will see 45,000 seats going for cheap to 25 overseas destinations.

For as little as $139 one way, you can get from Darwin to perennial Aussie favourite Bali. Other Asian highlights from the sale include a one-way flight to Phuket from Melbourne for $189, or Melbourne to Singapore for $179.

If you don’t fancy going that far, New Zealand is well-represented in the sale: a one-way flight from Gold Coast to Queenstown is $185, from Melbourne to Auckland it’s $184, and from Melbourne to Christchurch it’s $175. Other countries included in the sale include Fiji and Hawaii.

You’ll have to act very fast to take advantage of Book-a-break – the sale ends on Saturday, August 20th at 11:49pm, unless seats sell out prior. Flights are also only valid from the middle of October 2022 until the end of June next year.

And as always, there’s a small catch, with prices not including checked baggage. If you’re getting all the way to Bali for under $200 one-way though, that’s not too much of a snag.

If you do book a flight to Bali, don’t be like Em Davies. The Aussie influencer publicly posted that she was eating a “weed brownie” on the way to catch her flight to the Indonesian province.

Davies – who boasts 368,000 followers on Instagram – posted and deleted an Instagram Story with a question box that read, “Are we going to regret this weed brownie on our way to the airport?” Followers had the option to vote yes or no to the question.

Although the women were considering eating the brownie in Australia, Indonesia has some of the strictest drug laws in the world, and carriers of large quantities of illegal narcotics risk death by firing squad. Even people who consume a small amount of marijuana while in the country can face serious punishment.

Though the post has since been deleted, influencer watchdog Instagram page Celeb Spellcheck screenshotted the story and posted it to their page. The comments section then blew up, with hundreds of social media users questioning why the women would post the story.
