Act Fast! Cheap Flights to Australia from the US in the $700s

By  | 

Want to see Australia next year? American and Delta are offering great fares to Sydney and Melbourne from airports around the US.  You’ll want to act fast though, these probably won’t last long.

A long time ago when I was in Australia for only 24 hours during a mileage run.

This deal popped up on Scott’s Cheap Flights last night, so no telling how long it will last today. So if you think you want to go but still need to nail some things down, consider taking advantage of the 24 hour cancellation period. Book now, get things figured out and cancel if you need to by tomorrow morning.

It looks like most of these fares require a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday departure and at least a 7 day stay. Travel February through June 2018.

Cheap Flights to Sydney

Atlanta (ATL) – $745
Charlotte (CLT) – $725
Dallas (DFW) – $742
Denver (DEN) – $742
Detroit (DTW) – $749
Los Angeles (LAX) – $730
Miami (MIA) – $731
Minneapolis (MSP) – $746
New York City (JFK) – $745
Philadelphia (PHL) – $731
Phoenix (PHX) – $717
Washington DC (DCA) – $745

Cheap Flights to Melbourne

Charlotte (CLT) – $716
New York City (JFK) – $701
Philadelphia (PHL) – $708
Phoenix (PHX) – $704

When you’re searching Google Flights, you’ll notice none of the flights seem cheaper than $805. If you want the cheapest prices, Scott’s Cheap Flights recommends using Google Flights to search for your dates, then plugging those dates into Momondo which drops the price to the $700s.

These aren’t the cheapest flights I’ve seen recently but it’s certainly a good deal and worth jumping on if you can handle that many hours in coach.

And a note about Scott’s Cheap Flights — is their paid premium subscription service worth it? I wasn’t sure. A few months ago I signed up for the premium subscription but most of the deals I was interested in seem to show up on Facebook and their free email alerts. This deal with more US cities and both Sydney and Melbourne was one sent only to premium subscribers and worth $5 a month (or less) I think!

And even if you don’t want the premium service, definitely sign up for their free emails and follow them on Facebook!

    Great info. I’m new to this and have two questions… 1. Should I be concerned about booking through the specific travel portals they list? 2. Should I be concerned they don’t show an airline, just say it’s a major us carrier?
