Vancouver to Sydney, Brisbane, or Melbourne, Australia - $937 CAD roundtrip including taxes on Qantas | add Los Angeles or San Francisco for free

Sydney, Australia

Qantas (a great airline) has dropped the price of their February, March, April, and May 2018 flights from Vancouver to Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, Australia down to $937 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

It's also possible to turn these into 2-in-1 trips and visit both Australia *and* Los Angeles or San Francisco, and keep the price at $937 CAD roundtrip.

You can also find 3-in-1 trips that allow you to visit all 3 of these major Australian cities (Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne) on one trip for just $964 CAD !


Availability for travel

February, March, April, May, June 2018

How to find and book these flights

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Start by looking for a regular roundtrip flight.

Search for a flight from Vancouver to...

Sydney (SYD)
Brisbane (BNE)
Melbourne (MEL)

Try dates in February, March, April, May, and June 2018

TIP: Try starting with Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday dates. Once your search completes, click on 'Flexible Dates' and look for the flights that are $937.

The fastest flights may not be the flights at the very top of your search results, sometimes you need to check out the first 3 or 4 flights.

So, let's say you found a regular roundtrip flight that looks like this...



We can see that it's from March 14 to March 28.

3. Now we can try turning this into a 2-in-1 trip, and stopping over in Los Angeles or San Francisco for free.

Change the search type from Round Trip to 'Multi-City'

Search for a flight like this:

Vancouver to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles (LAX)
Los Angeles (LAX) to Vancouver

or

Vancouver to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
Sydney, Australia to San Francisco (SFO)
San Francisco (SFO) to Vancouver

or, if you'd like, try using Brisbane or Melbourne instead of Sydney.

4. As for the dates to use, for the first and last legs of the journey, try using start and end dates that are similar to the regular roundtrip flight dates that you found at the beginning, in the first step.

And then play around with the middle date, to give you more or less time in Australia vs Los Angeles.

For example, if the regular roundtrip dates that you found were:
March 14 to March 28

Try using these dates for your 2-in-1 trip:
March 14 to March 26 to March 28

3-in-1 trip: If you really want to get fancy, you may be able to find trips that allow you to visit multiple Australian cities *and* Los Angeles or San Francisco, for around $22 more

I would recommend first attempting to find a 2-in-1 trip using the instructions in the paragraph above.

Once you have found a 2-in-1 trip, try using similar dates to find a 3-in-1 trip.

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Click on Multi-City

3. Search for a flight like this:

Vancouver to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to Brisbane (BNE)
Brisbane (BNE) to Los Angeles (LAX)
Los Angeles (LAX) to Vancouver

Variations: You can try substituting San Francisco for Los Angeles.

You can also find 3-in-1 trips that allow you to visit 3 major Australian cities on one trip (Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane) for just $964 CAD !

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Click on Multi-City

3. Search for a flight like this:

Vancouver to Melbourne (MEL)
Melbourne (MEL) to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to Brisbane (BNE)
Brisbane (BNE) to Vancouver (YVR)

4. As for the dates to use: focus on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday dates in February, March, April, May and June.

Here is an example:

Feb 7 to Feb 12 to Feb 19 to Feb 22

Update 9/26 - Air Canada has responded with non-stop flights from Vancouver to Sydney or Brisbane, Australia for $910 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Brisbane (BNE)
