Kids fly and stay for free with Jetstar deal
Jetstar is offering package holidays to Queensland where kids can fly and stay for free.
Destinations include the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast, Cairns and Port Douglas.
According to the fine print, the listed price for each holiday on the website is based on two full paying adults, and shown as per adult. One child (0-11 years) per full paying adult can fly and stay for free, as long as they use existing bedding.
From Melbourne, a holiday at Paradise Resort on the Gold Coast for three nights will cost a family of two adults and two children $838. At Paradise Resort, kids also eat and play free. And this is the resort with the incredible water play areas.
Jetstar's family holiday deals are available from other states too.
A trip from Sydney to the Sunshine coast staying three nights in an executive room at the Oaks oasis in Caloundra will cost a family of four $858.

Jetstar says it hopes the sale encourages more families to take a break.
“We know Aussies love to travel, but when you have children it can take more than just low air fares to afford a family holiday," Jetstar Chief Customer Officer Catriona Larritt told Family Travel.
"Our Kids Fly and Stay Free packages make it easier and more affordable for families to get away because they include free flights and accommodation for children under 12.
"We’re always looking to include different destinations and have included Kids Fly and Stay Free packages to Bali, Phuket and Queensland in the last six months. It is one of our most popular offers because of the incredible value it provides our customers.”
It's important to note most deals don't include checked baggage. The sale ends on Thursday May 24, unless sold out prior - so get in quick to grab a bargain.
