Direct flights to South America are now on sale from $995 return

Posted: 12 July 2018 11:08 am

Take off to Chile for $70+ less than your standard LATAM sale.

LATAM and Qantas have snuck a slew of cheap flights to Chile into the mix today, bringing fares down as low as $995 return.

The lucky ducks scoring this budget buy will fly from Melbourne to Santiago on LATAM direct in October and November.

While not as cheap from other Aussie cities, you definitely won't have to break the bank to jet set to Chile this year with starting fares from Sydney at $1,023, Brisbane at $1,032, Adelaide at $1,084 and Gold Coast at $1,095 return.

These journeys include a domestic Qantas flight to Melbourne where you'll connect onto the LATAM flight mentioned above. Some include longer stopovers than others, but since they're domestic you're free to exit the airport to explore the city before connecting onto your international flight to South America.

There's no set end date to this sale and seats are limited. Search for yours now through Flight Finder here or via the links in the table and then get packing for your trip!

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Good. We've seen flights to Santiago drop as low as $899 return in the past on LATAM. So while these come close, they're not rock-bottom. However, they are a cut above the standard sale, which tends to sit closer to $1,065 return.
  • Airline: Great. Both LATAM and Qantas are full-service airlines so you won't need to worry about paying extra for checked luggage, meals and entertainment as they're all included in your fare.
  • Travel time: Good. From Melbourne you've got direct flights into Chile, making them exceptional. From other Aussie cities, you'll need to transfer through Melbourne and stopovers may be long.
  • Weather: Great. Chile is good to visit year round with September and October being spring when the crowds disperse.
