Thrifty Traveler Premium sent out a deal yesterday that is still running today, with round trip flights to Australia available from many US cities from the $860’s. Some examples follow, but Thrifty Traveler has many more cities on the list (including smaller markets like Billings, Cleveland, Colorado Springs, Hartford, St. Louis, and more — it’s worth checking your city as there are many deals in addition to those posted below).

The Deal

  • Cheap economy class flights available to Australia from many US cities (from the $860’s round trip)
  • A 14-day minimum stay is required for these fares
  • Note that it’s easiest to find cheap dates using Google Flights, but prices are almost $100 cheaper through small online travel agencies listed at Momondo

Quick Thoughts

As noted above, it’s easiest to find cheap dates using Google Flights as you can easily look at two months of dates with their calendar. The dates in green are the low fares, and those fares will often drop another $80 or more when searching through Momondo for the same dates. Do your due dilligence if you choose a lesser-known travel agency. While you should be fine as long as you’re careful (make sure the price doesn’t suddenly increase during the booking process), you may have more challenge if there are irregular operations. The savings could certainly still be worth it.

Points enthusiasts may prefer using miles to fly business or first class for flights of this length, but these are some excellent prices for those looking for economy class fares. Remember that the seasons are flipped for those of us located in North America, with our summer being their winter and vice versa. I see flights on sale from June through January depending on origin and destination, so there are plenty of options.

As noted above, many more cities are possible, so it’s worth checking your city.

Are you worried about the legitimacy of the small OTAs that Momondo shows? Many have hundreds to thousands of horror stories online or BBB warnings.
