The year is quickly coming to an end, and as every other trip around the sun, it gets you thinking about the things you would like to improve of yourself (your waistline) and do more of (earn money with little to no effort) in the new year. We’re allowed to dream, right?

If your to-do list for 2017 includes more traveling and a good dose of white sand, fresh coconuts, palm trees and crystal clear waters, here’s some good news for you: Tigerair and Scoot have joined in to the giving spirit of the holidays and decided to cut prices of flights departing from anywhere in Australia and headed to the Maldives.

Starting today, Monday the 28th, Scoot is offering one-way economy flights to Male starting at $199 departing from Perth, $249 departing from the Gold Coast and $259 from Sydney and Melbourne. The offer ends one minute before the midnight of Monday, December 4 (AEST).

Considering one-way tickets usually go for anywhere upwards of $600, the deal is worth considering.

The travel period goes from February 8 until May 18, 2017. To secure the lowest possible price, try to stay flexible with the dates and light with the bags, as the price doesn’t include luggage, food and travel during school holidays. Taxes, however, are included.

Passengers will reach Singapore first on a Scoot flight and then continue with Tigerair until Male. As with any super discounted flight fares, you can expect a long layover in Singapore, which can be a bit of a burden if you’re eager to get on those tropical vibes, but if you’ve never been there before, take it as an opportunity to add another pin on your world map and another item to the list of things you can brag about with your friends. After all, you’ll be kilometres away from your office. Look at it as an adventure and you’ll enjoy every bit of it.

Earlier this month, Tigerair was offering $9 flights within Australia to celebrate the 9th anniversary of their domestic service in the country.

If this is what we get for their 9th anniversary, we can only imagine what next year awaits us. Time to start feeding the savings account!
