Pros: The crews did their best in a bad situation and were informative and engaging. Tiger also have an easy and economical upgrade to cabin baggage weight limit.

Cons: Outbound we were delayed on the tarmac for 45mins as the cabin PA had failed. A tech had to board and reboot the computer system. Our return journey was delayed 80mins as the assigned plane had another technical issue and required replacement. On landing deboarding was delayed a further 10mins as the ground crew had brought the wrong set of steps and couldn't find the correct set. Every time fly tiger I vow it will be the last time, but they are cheap...

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
