When Jetstar launched a big domestic flight sale in mid-June, it sold 70,000 seats in just five hours. Today, July 3, the airline has just kicked off another one — so get your clickers ready.

The Friday Fare Frenzy sale kicks of at 12pm today and runs until 8pm — if it doesn't sell out prior. In the sale, you'll find cheap flights on a heap of routes from destinations across NSW, Queensland, Tasmania and South Australia. But, before you book, we suggest you check in on when interstate borders are opening.

NSW and ACT borders are both open to everyone except those from the 36 Victorian hotspots suburbs. Residents of those suburbs are currently under stay-at-home orders until at least Wednesday, July 29. Similarly, Victoria is open — but you can't visit the aforementioned suburbs.

Queensland is reopening to everyone (except those from the hotspots) on Friday, July 10, as is the Northern Territory on Friday, July 17. Tasmania is working towards a July 24 reopening date (but this has not yet been confirmed) and WA has yet to announce anything. SA is open to those from Queensland, NT, Tasmania and WA, but has postponed its July 20 reopening for the rest of the country because of the spike in Victoria. A new date has not yet been announced.

Now you know where you can and can't go, here are the deals: Sydneysiders can snag tickets to the Sunshine Coast for $49, Cairns for $79 and Uluru from $99, as well as to the picturesque Whitsunday Coast from $69. Queenslanders, with their (almost) newfound freedom, can hop on a plan to Port Stephens for $45 or Hobart for $79 (and cross your fingers). Flights to and from Melbourne, because of the current situation, are not included in the sale.

Tickets in the sale are for trips between July 28 and September 23, 2020. So, if you're keen to get away, book some now and start planning.

Jetstar's Friday Fare Frenzy runs from 12–8pm (or until sold out) on Friday, July 3.
