Three £49 holidays to Australia are being offered by Flight Centre.

The cheap trips will be available to the first three couples calling the agency’s Cheltenham store at midday on Friday on 01202-395009.

The £49 per person holiday includes return flights, transfers, one-night hotel on arrival and seven days in a campervan for travel in May, June and September.

Flight Centre has slashed the price of the equivalent holiday for all consumers to £999pp until the end of the month.

The cost rises to £1,099 for travel to Sydney as part of the Australia Day promotion.
