A travel frenzy of epic proportion is about to take place

Kate Webster

Travellers get ready for an online shopping frenzy as Click Frenzy launches the first ever Travel Frenzy, a 24 hour online mega sale of epic proportions.

The 24-hour sale will include more than 500 incredible travel-related deals over 100 travel brands. Consumers will be treated to offers of up to 70% off some deals across holiday packages, flights, hotels and accommodation, cruises, tours, experiences, insurance, rental cars and all travel-related merchandise and products.

The conditions that have made Click Frenzy the online shopping event of the year are perfect for the launch of Travel Frenzy, according to the founders of the original Australian online shopping event that broke the internet in 2012.

Click Frenzy co-founder Grant Arnott says Australia is ready for Travel Frenzy.

“We’re expecting more than a million customers over 24 hours to rock our Click Frenzy Travel website and make this Australia’s biggest ever online travel sale! We have a huge range of iconic travel brands lined up to offer exceptional deals for Australian consumers, including Hilton, Webjet, TigerAir, Hotels.com, Accor, Mantra, Europcar, AAT Kings, Intrepid, Fast Cover, Covermore and many more to be announced in the coming weeks.”

What can Aussie travellers expect?

Everyone considering a holiday or experience in the next six months needs to do two things:

  • Start planning and dreaming of the trip you want to take
  • Get leave approval from the boss for the dates you want
  • Save the date for October 18 and don’t book a thing until Travel Frenzy kicks off

Travel Frenzy is promising thousands of dollars in savings available on international packages, and huge savings on domestic holidays and experiences. In addition to this, there are many prizes to be won including a holiday of a lifetime to Italy courtesy of Webjet.

Click Frenzy Travel runs from 7pm AEST Tuesday, 18 October until 7pm AEST Wednesday, 19 October at www.clickfrenzy.com.au. The event site featuring all deals will be open to all visitors during that 24 hours, plus subscribers will gain early access and exclusive offers.
