Tick Mexico off your list. Flights on sale now from $1,080 return

Posted: 3 July 2018 10:14 am

Yes, you can get to Cancun on the cheap!

It's not every day flights to Mexico skim this close to $1,000 return. And with the financial year over and your tax return on its way, it's never been a better time to put those well earned dollars toward a well earned escape.

Flights take off from Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney with all running under $1,100 return:

  • Melbourne to Cancun: from $1,080 return
  • Sydney to Cancun: from $1,084 return
  • Brisbane to Cancun: from $1,092 return

Flights are operated by United Airlines and can be booked through STA Travel at these super cheap prices.

The price is right but the travel dates are a little restricted and must be taken between 3 October and 30 November. The good news is that this is low season. The bad news is that October is one of the rainiest months of the year for Cancun. If you can, push your trip to November to hit shoulder season which is ideal as there's less chance of rain and less chance of rubbing shoulders with the Christmas holiday crowd.

This sale runs until 8 July, unless sold out prior. Get on it now through STA Travel to book out the best dates before somebody else does.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. Flights to Mexico rarely get this close to $1,000. In fact, the last time we saw this happen was in December 2017 when they dropped to $1,030 return so this really is your once-in-a-blue-moon chance to party in Cancun this cheap.
  • Airline: Full service. United Airlines is a 3-star, full service airline and fares include checked baggage, in-flight meals and entertainment.
  • Travel time: Great. All flights include a minimum of one stop. We took a look and this is typically in Los Angeles airport and includes a short transfer of around 3 hours which is enough time to stretch your legs and break up the long flight.
  • Weather: Good. Steer clear of the rainy season in October and opt for November dates for shoulder season weather which is almost as good as peak.
