South America Deals: Edmonton to Peru or Chile - $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 Edmonton today, on a variety of airlines (mainly involving Air Canada, LAN, and Aeromexico).

My pick:

If you're having trouble deciding, my pick would probably be the deals from Edmonton to Santiago, Chile.

Chile rarely goes on sale (usually $1300+ from Edmonton), and there's many great months to visit. 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.

If you go with Peru, you may wish to focus on September or October. It's not as much fun to climb Machu Picchu in November & December when the rainy season begins.

Edmonton to Lima, Peru (LIM) - $746 to $785 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 $748 flights with 1 stop each way (usually in Los Angeles or Cancun)

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

Oct 7 to Oct 17

Oct 14 to Oct 24 (1 stop each way)

Oct 21 to Oct 31

Oct 28 to Nov 07

Nov 04 to Nov 14

Dec 02 to Dec 12

Edmonton to Santiago, Chile (SCL) - $744 to $812 CAD roundtrip including taxes


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 $810 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 Edmonton - Chile can be done, and these ones are 20 hours.

How: search on Kayak and click through to Expedia

Example searches:

Sep 15-25

Oct 06-16

Oct 13-23 - $744

Oct 27- Nov 06

Nov 03 - Nov 13 - $773 - over Remembrance Day

Nov 10 - Nov 20

Nov 24 to Dec 04

Dec 1 to 11

Multi-City Deal: Edmonton to Buenos Aires, Argentina and then to Santiago, Chile and then back to Edmonton - $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.

These flights are also about as quick as Edmonton to Argentina or Chile can be done! The layover times are about as perfect as it gets. And yes, that price includes the flight between Argentina and Chile.

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: So far I've only seen a few date combinations this price is valid for. Thanks to Chad in the YEG Deals Facebook Group for spotting the first one!

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 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, longer layover in Toronto, extra stop in Santiago

Oct 16 to 28 $890, extra stop in Santiago

Oct 22 to Nov 04 -- long layover in Toronto on the way there

Nov 5 to 18 -- $865, fast flights

Nov 12 to 25 -- $865, extra stop in Santiago

Nov 20 to Dec 02 -- $890 and fast flights but an extra stop in Santiago on the way there

Nov 26 to Dec 09 -- an extra stop in Santiago on the way there
