Hokkaido Sakura Season 2018 with AirAsiaX Return Ticket for RM 99 only
Today is the last day of the 24 Hours Priority Booking for AirAsia FREE SEATS before it is open to public tomorrow. To be frank, many people are having issues accessing the website since 12 am this morning including us. The traffic for this morning around 7 to 8 am is better than 12 am to 2 am.
Since Japan is a very popular destination, don’t expect much discount during this AirAsia FREE SEATs promotion. The lowest air fare can get is around RM 700++ in low peak season in Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo Japan. The lowest air fare depends on the allocated seats for sales available and also the ‘loading’ of passengers during the dates selected. During peak season like Sakura season in late March to late April, expect to pay above RM 1,100++ per person to destination like Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo Hokkaido.
We have been spending some time on AirAsia and AirAsia BIG websites and we found the cheapest ticket for Sakura season in Japan next year. Since we missed the Cherry Blossom season in Osaka this year as we went there too early, so we decided to visit Japan again for the Sakura season.
We have checked many times and the best deals we can get is to Hokkaido next year for sakura season. We have checked many websites and blogs and sakura season starts in Hokkaido in the first week of May for many years.
Like the same story we blogged about paying only RM 99 for return ticket to Hokkaido from Malaysia, we found the same exact deal for the first week of May 2018. The catch is you need lots of AirAsia BIG points.
The lowest base AirAsia BIG points for KL to Hokkaido is 30,000 AirAsia BIG Points. We managed to get the best deal at around 80,000++ AirAsia BIG Points for return ticket from KL to Sapporo Hokkaido with AirAsia X and we paid the remaining point balance with cash.
Just we checked again and it is at 94,300 AirAsia BIG Points for return ticket and if you book with AirAsia FREE SEATS promo, it is priced at RM 1,105.00 without luggage, meals, seats selections and etc.
If you don’t have 90,000 AirAsia BIG Points, you can pay with 1,000 AirAsia BIG Points and pay the remaining AirAsia BIG points balance with cash which is RM 1061.97.
We know it is not easy to accumulate the AirAsia BIG points but there are a few ways to do it fast. You can get the points when you shop at Lazada.com.my, refuel your petrol at Petron and also converting your credit card points to AirAsia BIG points.
We have used up all our AirAsia BIG Points so it is time for us to accumulate it again. So good luck for those who are planning to get the AirAsia FREE SEATS promotion tomorrow and happy traveling.
