Hi everyone, can anybody recommend any of the more cheap ways to fly from Melbourne to Perth? I've been using Cheapflights
because i've used that plenty of times here in the UK and never had problems. I know Flight Centre
are also decent but i was wondering if anybody more experienced has any ideas. Ideally i'd like to make the flying as cheap as possible

It's sometimes worthwhile to look directly at the budget airlines, since they sometimes have good deals on. You can sign up for email alerts when they release cheap tickets. If you look at Attitude Travel Australia
there is a list of the budget airlines in Australia and where the fly between.
A good way to quickly compare all domestic flights in Australia is to use webjet.com.au
You can then book your flight on the webjet site, or go directly to the airline's website (usually works out to be about $5 cheaper per sector).
I live in perth and unfortunatly it isnt often cheap. Best you might get will be $150 one way on jetstar or virgin plus the cost of luggage and food. Tiger airways also does a perth to melb leg but ive never even investigated it so cant help with them.
Qantas sometimes has $179 if you sign up for their specials and then it is a full service flight - food, luggage and entertainment included. I've only ever flown qantas because on specials as it often comes out about the same when you the price of luggage, food, seat allocation and a decent flight time (ie. not midnight horror).
webjet.com.au would be your best bet but it doesnt include qantas. Otherwise zuji.com.au also looks at aussie airlines.
