If you're planning a spot of globetrotting next year, now's the time to book bargain flights within Asia and to Australia: Air Asia is offering selected flights from a number of cities including Bangkok, Manila and Singapore to selected destinations across Asia and Australasia from as little as $4 (about £2.40).

You can fly from Bangkok to Chiang Mai or Surat Thani for $10 (£6) or from Kuala Lumpur to Perth for $85 (£51). Phuket to Chiang Mai is $20 (£12) or Phuket to Singapore $36 (£22).

However, you need to act quickly as the sale ends tomorrow. The flights must be taken between 1 March and 24 October 2015.

Back-to-school kit deals
