If you're not big on fashion or tech, you might not think Black Friday is an exciting time for you. But you'd be wrong. Because Black Friday also means cheap airfares, and everyone gets excited about cheap travel, right?
We've rounded up the best Black Friday travel sales, so get your credit cards out and start calculating your annual leave.
STA Travel has fares to the US for just $599—that's one way, but still an absolute bargain. Otherwise, you can get to Japan for as little as $499 return, Sri Lanka from $599 return or Europe for just $699 return. The sale ends on 26 November.
Thanks to Flight Centre, you can get return flights to Shanghai for just $466, or to Beijing for $539 with Qantas—yep, even Qantas is getting in on the Black Friday sales. They've got a few other sale fares up their sleeves and the promotion is running until 30 November, but we think these might sell out before then.
Jetstar is going crazy with domestic fares starting at $39 between Melbourne and Hobart. If you're part of Club Jetstar you'll also get access to international flights starting from a ridiculous $99—that's for flights to Bali from Perth, Darwin and Cairns—or just $139 for flights to Queenstown from Sydney and Melbourne. If you want to go a bit further, you can get to Honolulu for as little as $279 or Ho Chi Min City from $249. This one only runs until 8pmAEDT tonight, so get on it.
How do $495 return flights to Hong Kong sound to you? Pretty darn good we'd expect, so you'll be pleased to hear Helloworld is offering those fares with Virgin. You can also get to America for under $950 return on Qantas.
Air New Zealand
Air New Zealand loves a pun as much as the rest of us, so their Black Flyday sale is going strong until 26 November. You can get to LA from just $909 return, or to Auckland, Christchurch or Wellington from $179 from Melbourne and Sydney, or to Queenstown from $219.

Qatar Airways is keeping things simple with 10% off if you use the code CYBEROFFERSAU. It's only on economy flights to selected European destinated, but that's better than nothing, right? Sale ends 27 November.
Cathay Pacific's sale might not be as cheap as some of the others, but if you like to travel in comfort, you'll be pleased to know they've got fares to Dublin starting at $1272 and Rome from $1322. This one ends 30 November.
