Christmas Flight Specials with Webjet

Christmas is one of the most magical times of the year, making it a great time to experience a new culture. While December is notorious for being an expensive time to travel, if you plan ahead, you can get some great Christmas flight deals for the holiday season.

 

Living in Australia, you're probably used to hot Christmas celebrations complete with a barbecue and a trip to the beach. But everywhere in the world does Christmas a bit differently. Much of the Northern Hemisphere experiences a white Christmas with snow, cold weather, hot drinks, Christmas markets, and skiing. It's a totally different experience to Christmas in Australia and an exciting way to spend your holiday. Alternatively, you can stick to hot weather by planning a trip to somewhere tropical. Many islands and hot climates have embraced the Christmas spirit, and you can also spend time lying on the beach, going for hikes, and taking part in lots of outdoor activities.

 

No matter what type of Christmas you're looking to have, Webjet will help you find Christmas flight specials to get you where you want to go. Book cheap Christmas flights through Webjet, and we can assure you it will be a holiday you'll never forget!

Bali

If you're looking to spend your holiday in the tropics, Bali is the perfect spot. Several airlines offer cheap Christmas flights to Bali from airports around Australia.

Although Bali is predominantly Hindu, several places around the island have embraced Christmas due to the many tourists who visit during this time. You can enjoy a Christmas feast at some local restaurants and watch fireworks on the beach for both Christmas and New Year's Eve.

 

New York City

Few cities in the world do Christmas quite as well as New York. The city comes alive during the holidays with decorations all over the city, including the enormous Rockefeller Centre Christmas tree, Christmas window displays along 5th Avenue, several Christmas markets, and ice skating rinks. If you'd like to stay into January, you can even experience the world-famous New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square. New York can be cold during the holidays, but the crisp air and light snowfall only add to the magic of the holiday season in the city.

 

Rome

Rome is one of the most iconic cities to visit in Europe. It's full of history, with many of its monuments dating back several thousand years.
