Rex launches 72-hour fare sale with NO school holiday blackout so you can take your kids (if you want to)
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Rex has announced a flash 72-hour fare sale from today offering families and savvy holiday shoppers flights to some of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations – including the Gold Coast – from as low as $99 one-way economy and $249 for business class.

    Australia’s Airline of the Year winner has reduced fares on all its domestic 737-operated routes including Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, and the Gold Coast.

    And in a huge boost for families wanting a bargain winter break, Rex has ensured school and public holidays during the sale travel period will not be exempt from purchase (subject to booking class availability), and the sale fare includes carry-on and checked baggage for travellers.

    Rex national sales & alliance manager Hayley Freeman urged holiday makers to get in quick before the midnight Friday deadline, to take advantage of these great domestic flight deals.

    “These are terrific sale fares on all our Rex domestic 737-operated routes and importantly, there is no school or public holiday blackout for the stated travel period,” Freeman said.

    “This is great news for families wanting to nab a holiday bargain for the winter school break and in addition, our fares include carry-on and checked baggage, unlike some other carriers.

    “But best of all travellers can rest assured with Rex – Australia’s Airline of the Year winner – that our safety, reliability and hospitality will see them arrive at their destination with a smile.”

    Simply book by 19 April 2024 and travel from 29 April to 31 August 2024 to unlock these deals.
