Searching for cheap flights to Scandinavia? You can now get there from $734 return

Here's how to get to Sweden for half the price.

Fares to Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, have taken a tumble and we're chuffed to say that you can get there and back from $734 return.

We know what you're thinking: sign me up.

Before you do, there are a few things you might like to know.

Flights take off from Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane and you'll be flying China Eastern which is a full-service 3-star airline. Being a Chinese airline, there's a mandatory stopover in China included. Looking at a sample flight from Melbourne to Stockholm, this could be quite long, lasting 6-15 hours. The good news is that Australians are provided with a free transit visa for stays under 24-hours so you can get out of the airport in this time and explore the city a bit.

With these long stopovers, your total flight time will likely work out to be 32 hours. This is around 10 hours longer than a direct flight. On the flipside, the most direct and fastest flight costs about double, so while you're spending a little more time in transit, you're saving a good $700+ on your fare.

Now for travel dates. Here's where there's some really good news. They're over the European summer. August to be exact, which is one of the most sought-after months to travel to Europe.

If that all sounds good to you, you can search for your flights and book your trip through Skyscanner here.

Sweden, here I come!
