If you’re bummed about volcanic ash squashing your Bali holiday plans, then why not consider taking a trip to another island paradise instead for a generously discounted price?

Scoot is having an early Christmas sale on its services to Southeast Asia (including Phuket and Boracay), which is perfect timing for those looking for sun and beach outside of Indonesia.

Currently, the low-cost carrier is offering $139 flights from Perth to Krabi or Phuket in Thailand, $159 flights from the Gold Coast, $179 from Sydney and $189 from Melbourne.


If Thailand isn’t quite what your heart desires, then how about exploring the pristine sites around the Philippines’ Boracay from $179 from Perth, $199 from the Gold Coast, $209 from Sydney and $219 from Melbourne.

Don’t worry, discounted fares don’t mean you’ll be jacked when it comes to comfort and service because Scoot flies a complete 787 Dreamliner fleet – you know, like the aircraft Qantas recently had a huge celebration over.


The offer is valid from now until 3 December on flights departing Australian cities from 29 November untill 31 January 2019 (black out dates apply).

As a little bonus, Scoot is also giving travellers an extra $10 off selected FLYBAG and FLYBAGEAT fares when they add the promo code ESCAPE10 at the time of booking.
