Vancouver to Santiago, Chile | $798 roundtrip after taxes

Torres del Paine, Chile

Santiago, Chile is one of those destinations that never really seems to go on sale, and most people will usually end up paying at least $1250 after taxes for a round-trip flight from Vancouver. Flying from Seattle doesn't help, as the prices are usually pretty similar to what they are from Vancouver on this route.

But TAM Airlines just significantly dropped their price between Vancouver and Santiago (SCL), undercutting their closest competition by over 35%.

The fares look to be available on a fairly large variety of dates, between October 2013 and December 2013., along with March 2014 and April 2014. January 2014 and February 2014 look to be slightly more expensive (high $800s).

As far as weather in Santiago goes, September to November is a nice time to visit (spring time in the southern hemisphere). Their summer season is December to February.

For the very southern part of Chile, November through March is best. For hiking around Torres del Paine, September through November has the ideal spring weather.

The crowds usually start to ramp up in December and continue through March, as this is their summer season, and when a lot of locals do their traveling, just as we do in our summers here.

So with that in mind, Here are some example searches on Kayak to get you started. You can click through from Kayak to various booking sites to book the tickets.

December 2013

March 2014

Note that the flights connect in Toronto and Sao Paulo each way. This is not the most direct of routes, and is about 6 hours longer than the fastest possible flights between Vancouver and Santiago (such as a 1 stop flight connecting in Dallas).

    Great deal Chris! Just curious... I've been looking for a cheap flight to Brazil during November... is it possible to get off/on in Sao Paulo and not go to Santiago at all? I think they call this hidden city ticketing. Will there be penalties or cancellations incurred? Never tried it before, hoping you can give some insights?

    I'm also curious about getting off in Sao Paulo, whether for a stopover, or end destination. I took a look at TAM's website, and when you select the same exact dates (I did Nov 5-19) and same flight numbers, having Sao Paulo as the final destination makes flights over $1000. Chris, can you advise on this?
    Thank you!

    Tried all your links today, 12th September and nothing under $1300 to SCL
    Either was a pricing error or those seats sold fast!

    Graeme: Could have been both :)

    To those wondering about roundtrip flights and not using all of the legs of a ticket, basically in most situations if you miss any leg of your ticket, the airline will typically cancel the rest of the ticket. So I would not recommend you skip a leg on the outbound portion of your roundtrip flight.

    If it's a one way ticket, or the flight coming home, there's not much the airline can do if you don't use all of your ticket (other than perhaps threaten your loyalty status, but not overly likely). Just make sure you're flying without checked luggage.

    Mark: You may want to check the date on the blog post. This was posted September 11th, and you were checking on October 27th, over a month later!

    I would recommend signing up for alerts so you don't miss the next one. ('Alerts' tab at the top of this page)
