Data analysed data by Jetstar over the past year ranks the top postcodes from across the country based on the number of fares purchased for under $100.

Gold Coast and Cairns residents came in second and third, with more than 51,000 and 32,000 sub-$100 fares purchased respectively.
Jetstar Australia CEO Dean Salter said last year actually set the record for the number of cheap flights sold, with two thirds of all Jetstar fares selling for under $100.

The data also revealed that Sydney was the top holiday destination for the majority of top 10 suburbs.
Capital cities were the top destination for most of the bargain-savvy suburbs, with the exception of North Bondi residents who most wanted to travel to the Gold Coast.
