India, Thailand and China were the next most popular holiday destinations searched by Australians.
But when it comes to affordability, Malaysia, Singapore and Fiji took out the next top spots, knocking last year’s place getters - Thailand and the Philippines - out to fifth and eleventh place respectively.
However Nathan Graham, regional sales manager at Cheapflights, said the country Aussie travellers should put on their radar for bargain flights is China.
“Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing all feature in the top 30 most popular and cheapest Asian destinations (under $729), and the country is already Sydney’s No.1 most searched country in Asia Pacific.
“With increasing business and trade deals encouraging reciprocal travel with more flights and cheaper airfares, the number of Aussies visiting this Asian giant will take off,” he said.According to the report, there are two factors which have a big impact on price - the day of the week you fly and how far in advance you book.
“Travelling on a Tuesday is up to eight per cent cheaper than departing on a Friday – and gone are the days of cheap last-minute deals, as booking less than a week in advance could cost you up to 13 per cent more for a domestic flight, eight per cent to cross the ditch, and 17 per cent more on international airfares.
“Generally speaking, three months in advance is the sweet spot for finding the best price,” says Graham.
The second annual Cheapflights Compass report analysed over 13.5 million searches to uncover how Aussies can save time and money when booking their next trip to Asia Pacific.
