Super cheap flights from London to Sydney from £395pp

Please note that this deal has now expired.

We've just spotted these super cheap fares to Sydney for just £395 per person return. G'day indeed!

As you might imagine, such a cheap fare does come with a downside. There is a 7-hour layover in Chengdu, which is the capital of Sichuan province in China. Probably not for those with kids in tow, but for the cost conscious, I think it's worth it.

What's included

  • Return flights from London to Sydney. Note that the departure airport is Gatwick and the return is Heathrow
  • Economy Saver fare, which includes 2 pieces of checked-in baggage per passenger
  • Food is included

About Sydney

Average flight time: 20hrs and 42 mins

With its distinctive Opera House welcoming passengers as they make their descent over the Harbour Bridge and past Darling harbour into one of Australia's largest cities, be sure not to blink as you won't want to miss the incredible sight that is Sydney - day or night.

National parks circle the city and venture deep into its centre, with them they bring a diverse collection of native creepy-crawly's and stunning wildlife from oversized spiders to possums, flying foxes and cockatoos. At times this predominantly concrete jungle can feel like the real thing.

When night falls and you've had your fill of soaking up the sunshine on the beach at Bondai, Manley or others, there's a wealth of activities on offer from the vast selection of bars, clubs, brasseries and bistros to the latest pop-up or fine dining restaurant or the coolest little joint to listen to trendy new bands or watch the latest action in this sport mad nation.
