Half-price flights peak Australia travellers' interest in air travel bookings

April 2021

Between April and July, an average of 46,000 half-price fares are estimated each week to and from 13 regions in Australia. This has resulted in a spike in travel clicks and Microsoft Advertising Insights is here to help you plan accordingly. We’ve seen searches containing ‘flights’ grow 16%, and ‘cheap flights’ grow even more at 26%.

We recommend you take three key actions to best reach your audience during this time:

  • Invest in upper funnel keywords to improve the likelihood of connecting with your consumers in initial phase of their travel journeys.
  • Adjust your campaign budget to capture the increased demand for travel post the half pricing announcement.
  • Improve your keyword coverage with Broad match and Dynamic Search Ads to capture the upcoming surge in demand.
