Impulse specials: Going, going…

Good value Internet-only discount fares can still be found on the website of the soon-to-disappear Impulse Airlines. You must book these specials before May 14 but Qantas has pledged to honour all Impulse tickets after this date when it takes control of the airline.

Sydney-Canberra is available for $108 one-way until 31 December. While this is $36 above the previous best fare for the route, it remains good value.

Fares available for travel until this Monday May 14 include $126 Melbourne-Brisbane, $195 Canberra-Brisbane and $178 Hobart-Canberra.

Fares available for travel until May 20 include $72 Sydney-Melbourne, $65 Brisbane-Sydney, $188 Hobart-Sydney, $96 Melbourne-Canberra and $99 Hobart-Melbourne.

Similar low-cost fares are also available with Ansett, Qantas and Virgin Blue, so check out the FlightChoice comparison tables.

Remember, searching is often the key to securing the lowest airfare and the more airlines you check and the more flexible you can be on departure and arrival times, the better.
