South America Deals: Calgary to Peru, Chile, Argentina - $700s and $800s roundtrip including taxes

If you've ever wanted to visit South America, today would probably be a very good day to check the airfare prices.

There seems to be a few unusually good prices to some South American destinations from Calgary today, on a variety of airlines (mainly involving Air Canada, LAN, and Aeromexico).

My pick:

If you feel overwhelmed by the choices, my pick would probably be the deals from Calgary to Santiago, Chile.

Chile rarely goes on sale (usually $1200+ from Calgary), and there's many great months to visit, such as November & December for the Patagonia area (summer in the southern hemisphere).

And late September to mid November for Santiago (spring time).

All of which fall in line with the months available for this deal.

Let's examine the available South American destinations in order of price, from Calgary...

Calgary to Lima, Peru (LIM) - $707 to $736 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Machu Picchu, Peru

When: late September 2015 to December 2015

Airlines involved: Air Canada, Aeromexico, and LAN

Heads up: There are a variety of different flight options, some involving overnight stays in Toronto, while others involve an overnight stay in Mexico City. If you want a flight without overnight stays, look for the $736 flights with 1 stop each way (usually in Los Angeles)

Click on 'Show Details' once you get to Kayak to review the itinerary. Some flights don't require overnight stays, and have just 1 stop each way (I've identified them in the links below).

How: search on Kayak, click through to Expedia or Travelocity

Example searches:

Sep 30 to Oct 10

Sep 30 to Oct 14 - $707

Oct 7 to Oct 17

Oct 14 to Oct 24

Oct 21 to Oct 31

Oct 28 to Nov 07

Nov 04 to Nov 14 - 1 stop on the way back, no overnight stays

Dec 02 to Dec 12



Alternatively, you can fly into Lima (LIM) and out of Cusco (CUZ) for $656 to $689 including taxes.

How: Search on Kayak, click through to Expedia for booking.

Example dates:

Oct 21 to Oct 31

Oct 28 to Nov 07

Dec 02 to Dec 09 - $645



Calgary to Santiago, Chile (SCL) - $775 to $802 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Chile

When: September 2015 to mid-December 2015

Airlines involved: Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, LAN, Aeromexico

Heads up: There are a large variety of different flight itineraries available for under $800. Most of those ones involve a stopover of at least 7 hours in Mexico City. There are also some for under $820 with shorter stopovers.

Tip: When you get to Kayak, try using the 'Durations' sliders on the left, and bring the 'Flight Leg' slider down to 21 hours.

This should yield some flights for $806 to $818 on LAN that are fairly decent in terms of travel time.

16 hours of total travel time each way is about as fast as Calgary - Chile can be done, and these ones are 20 hours.

How: search on Kayak and click through to Expedia

Example searches:

Sep 15-25 - $764

Oct 06-16 - $764

Oct 13-23 - $802

Oct 27- Nov 06 - $775

Nov 03 - Nov 13 - $802 - over Remembrance Day

Nov 10 - Nov 20 - $779

Nov 24 to Dec 04 - $802 (Nov 22-24 to Dec 01 for $791)

Dec 1 to 11 - $806



Calgary to Buenos Aires, Argentina (EZE) - $822 to $836 CAD roundtrip including taxes

^^ it's been many years since I've seen a Calgary - Argentina flight in the $800s.

Iguazu Falls, Argentina side

When: October 2015 to early December 2015

Airlines involved: Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, LAN

Heads up: These have overnight stays on the way back, in Los Angeles.

How: search on Kayak and click through to FlightHub

Example searches:

Oct 13-23

Oct 22 - Oct 30

Nov 3 to Nov 3

Nov 24 to Dec 04



Multi-City Deal: Calgary to Buenos Aires, Argentina and then to Santiago, Chile and then back to Calgary - $865 for all 3 flights!

Iguazu Falls, Argentina

It looks like Air Canada is now offering some amazing multi-city deals, where you can visit Argentina *and* Chile for just $865 after taxes, including the flight between Buenos Aires and Chile. I've definitely never seen anything like this before.

When: October 2015 to mid-December 2015

Airlines involved: Air Canada

How: search on Google Flights and click through to Air Canada to book.

Heads Up: In most cases, you can either do Argentina first, or Chile first. Either way, it seems to result it in a 1-stop flight in one direction, and a 2-stop flight in the opposite direction.

Example searches:

(these searches are for a 2 week trip, spending one week in Argentina and one week in Chile. It is possible to find longer trips by mixing and matching the departure/return dates from the various examples below.

For example, if you modify the dates on Google Flights to Nov 05 to Nov 11 to Nov 25 it will work as well).

Oct 06 to 21 $865 - Argentina first, then Chile

Oct 06 to 21 $865, Chile first, then Argentina

Oct 16 or 17 to 28 $890, Argentina first

Oct 16 or 17 to 28 $890, Chile first

Oct 22 to Nov 04 $865, Argentina first

Oct 22 to Nov 04 $865, Chile first

Nov 5 to 18 $865, Argentina first

Nov 5 to 18 $865, Chile first

Nov 12 to 25 $865, Argentina First

Nov 12 to 25 -- $865, Chile first

Nov 20 to Dec 02 $890, Argentina first

Nov 20 to Dec 02 $890, Chile first

Nov 26 to Dec 09 $865, Argentina first

Nov 26 to Dec 09 $865, Argentina first -- Chile first is $965 on these dates
