If you’ve been eyeing a trip to Australia, get ready to act quick. On Monday, Australian carrier Qantas announced that it’ll release a limited number of tickets from London (LHR) to Sydney (SYD) for just £205 return in economy.

On 16 November, Qantas celebrated its 99th birthday. And as of Monday, the carrier is running a centenary sale to celebrate the start of its 100th year. As of midday on Monday, 18 November, and running for 100 hours — or just more than four days — Qantas will be releasing special Golden Tickets from LHR to SYD from just £205 return.

According to the carrier, it’ll release 20 of the Golden Tickets every day for the duration of the sale. The tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis, meaning if you want to take advantage, you’ll have to act quick.

The following dates are eligible for the first day of Golden Tickets:

…And they do exist!

There’s no doubt that £205 return, including taxes and fees, from London to Sydney is a steal of a deal. However, keep in mind that you’ll have to fly the long journey in the economy cabin. Qantas flies its one-stop route between Sydney and London via Singapore (SIN), so you’ll have to make a stop along the way. The route is operated by one of its Airbus A380 aircraft.

If you’ve got quick fingers and time to do some searching, you’ll want to keep refreshing your results for one of the Golden Tickets until all 100 run out. Even if you’re not able to snag one of the Golden Tickets, Qantas is also offering sale fares from London to Sydney, Perth and Melbourne from £699 return.
