Alice Springs is noteworthy for two things – its proximity to Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) and the distinction of being Australia’s best-known outback town. It is home to less than 30,000 people – still making it the second most populous area in the state.
Airfare to Alice Springs will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.
Also consider flights into Darwin, Australia. To get between the cities, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no-frills airlines. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.
Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through Sydney or Melbourne, Australia, or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.
Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Qantas is the national airline. However, other domestic airlines also stop in Alice Springs.
The most expensive air tickets to Alice Springs are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
Summary of Money Saving Tips:
- Fly mid-week
- Book your holiday during the off-peak season
- Consider flying into Darwin, Australia and traveling overland to Alice Springs via train or bus
- Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
- Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
