You can also turn this into a 2-in-1 trip, and spend time in both Sydney, Australia *and* Los Angeles (or San Francisco) for $960 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, California

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Click on Multi-City

3. 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

4. As for the dates to use, for the first and last legs of the journey, try using the start and end dates from the regular roundtrip flight dates in the section above.

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

For example, if the regular roundtrip dates are:
Feb 12 to Feb 26

Try using these dates:
Feb 12 to Feb 22 to Feb 26

    Hey Chris! I don't see the flexible dates option in flight hub on my phone?

    Has Chris Myden been here?

    Yeah, unfortunately FlightHub's mobile site doesn't offer a way to search with flexible dates.

    Thanks for the fast response Chris! I'm wanting to go to Malaysia and also Sydney from Vancouver.. Thinking of doing it via a stop over to Australia.. What are your thoughts for the best way? Do these Australia flights allow stop overs?

    Has Chris Myden been here?
       Chris Myden on June 14th, 2017

    Hi Sam,

    These flights do have free stopovers available in Los Angles and San Francisco (not sure if you saw the update to the blog post).

    A stopover in Malaysia on your way to Australia won't be possible with this deal, since Vancouver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco all have non-stop flights to Sydney - so most airlines will generally be flying through one of these cities to get to Australia.

    In the rare cases where airlines do give a free stopover, it's generally only in cities that are their main hub, or at the very least, it's a city that's common for them to stop in, on your way to your final destination. From Vancouver to Malaysia, they usually fly through Japan, China, Taiwan, or the Philippines.
