Cheap flights to Brisbane

A sophisticated city with a reputation for culture, Brisbane is home to one of Australia’s finest culinary scenes. With its annual festival, roof top bars and city beaches, there’s always something to do in and around the city.

When to book flights to Brisbane

One of the best times to visit Brisbane is between March and May. This is autumn in the southern hemisphere and temperatures are milder than the scorching summer months, and with little rainfall. But always remember to wear plenty of sunscreen at any time of year.

June to August, which is winter in Brisbane, is also a good time, as is the spring. But bear in mind that if you travel in September, the city hosts a month-long arts festival so flights and accommodation can get booked up early.

From December to March it’s usually easier to find cheap flights and hotels, but it is the rainy season so it’s worth being aware that things can get a little wet.

How to find the best flight deals to Brisbane

If you’re planning on visiting in September, during the festival, then the advice is to book early to get any kind of affordable flights to Brisbane.

However, during the rest of the year, it might be possible to find cheap deals. You simply have to know how to use the Expedia flight search to your advantage.

Use the ‘Show Flexible Dates’ option to see what other deals are available on the days surrounding your preferred flight options. Very often, by making little adjustments, you can make big savings.

How to get to and around Brisbane

The main ways of getting from the airport to the city is by train, with departures running every 15 minutes during peak hours. Travel time is about 30 minutes.

There are several private shuttle firms offering services too, but wait times can be up to an hour. Public bus services connect the airport and the city and are the cheapest way of travelling.

Once in the city, getting around in Brisbane is very simple. It’s an excellent city for walking, especially around the CBD and, if you’re travelling further, you’re never too far from a bus, train or ferry station.

With a network of bike paths, especially along the river, cycling is another popular option. Although some areas of the city are very hilly. The one way system in the city can be a little confusing at first but you’ll soon get used to it, and with plenty of rental car options, self-driving holidays are popular.

What are the must-sees in Brisbane?

Stroll along the South Bank where you’ll find the site of the Expo 88, featuring an artificial beach and parklands. The botanic gardens are just a short 10-minute walk from the city centre, with free guided tours available. If you love animals then the Queensland Zoo is about an hour north of the city, and there’s the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary where you can make some furry friends.

If you’re feeling really energetic, then Mt Coot-tha is Brisbane’s tallest mountain. There’s a great view from the top out of the city and a restaurant if you need to refresh. And if you don’t feel like walking, you can take a scenic drive to the summit.

Tips for travelling in Brisbane

British citizens will need a visa to travel to Australia. You can either get an eVisitor direct from the Department of Immigration or you can get an Electronic Travel Authority via your airline. In some circumstances you may be asked to undergo a medical test before visas are issued.

Perhaps best known for bureaucracy, scratch the surface of Brussels and you’ll discover a hip, multicultural city, bursting with ideas. Spreading out from its medieval core and majestic Grand Place, Brussels gradually morphs from Art Nouveau to the sharp facades of modern administration centres.

How to survive the flight to Brisbane?
If you’re not prepared, travelling can be daunting. But don’t hit the panic button just yet. Follow these helpful hints for a stress-free start to your time in Brisbane.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a hassle-free travel experience is to pack ahead. First up, the essentials: passport, boarding pass, bank cards and vital medications. Next, take on board items that’ll help keep you busy, like some electronic gadgets or a few magazines. You’ll also want to pack your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of earphones. And of course, don’t forget to chuck in toiletry items like a toothbrush, lip balm and a fresh change of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of banned items can differ between air carriers, the general rule to follow is avoid carrying anything sharp, flammable or explosive. This includes screwdrivers, pocket knives, fuel and fireworks. Sports equipment like golf clubs, and items that could harm passengers, such as firearms and ammunition, can’t come on board with you either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The goal here is to make yourself as comfortable as possible. Dress in loose, natural-fibre clothing and remember to pack a sweater in case it gets cold in the cabin. Go for a pair of flat, well-fitting shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell during the flight. Leave the stilettos and heavy boots in your checked baggage.
  • A serious condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a potential risk on long-haul flights. It’s the result of blood clotting due to poor circulation. Walking around the cabin and doing regular leg and foot exercises in your seat helps to prevent this from occurring. Wearing a pair of compression socks may also help.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Brisbane?
As savvy travellers know, the secret is to be organised before you reach airport security. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Brisbane in no time at all. Follow these tips and get your holiday off to a spectacular start:

  • Your boarding pass and travel ID will need to be shown to security personnel. Keep them at hand so you don’t have to dig around for them.
  • Next up, both you and your carry-on bag must be X-rayed. To speed things up, remove anything that is likely to set the alarm off. Items such as your jacket, belt and headphones need to go through the machine.
  • Your electronic devices like laptops and phones will also have to go on a tray for inspection. Don’t worry, you’ll be back online soon enough.
  • Can’t travel without your favourite cologne? Not a problem. As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-close bag, it’s OK to bring with you in your carry-on luggage.
  • The right choice of footwear can save you several precious minutes. Boots and bulky shoes are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Slip-on shoes usually aren’t.
  • Sharp or pointed items are not allowed on board. They’ll be confiscated at security, so pack them in your checked baggage.
