It is well known that going to Australia is not cheap, but the largest travel expense is represented by the Italy Australia flight ticket. And the second biggest expense is moving around Australia.
Consider the fact that the cost of the flight ticket to Australia is around 1000 Euros, ie approx. one third of the travel cost of 3 or 4 weeks. So it is clear that finding a good flight offer for Australia is essential .
Furthermore, planning the trip well in advance is crucial. At least 3-4 months if you go to Australia during the low season (from September to November and from March to May). If you plan to travel in high season and during the Christmas holidays, then start at least 6 months before.
In addition, some destinations in Australia and certain activities are even more expensive in the high season, so it is not worth going to Australia between December and February. To save money, you need to plan your journey efficiently so as not to sacrifice comfort and travel quality.
