***Update as of Tuesday, May 16: Tickets for the price on the below date are unavailable, however, there are numerous dates available for $800 in the next couple of months. For example, United Airlines tickets that depart on Aug. 9 and return on Aug. 13 cost $680 return.**
Surrounded by snow-capped mountain ranges, Chile's capital city wows visitors with its natural charms.
But a plane ticket to Santiago typically costs a pretty penny from Vancouver.
A return trip from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport (SCL) in Chile typically costs between $1,600 and $4,350, according to Google Flights.
Right now, there are return trips on select dates to the vibrant destination that are roughly $1,509 cheaper than usual.
For example, a flight departing Vancouver on Sept. 6, 2023, and returning from Santiago on Sept. 24 costs a total of $678.06 including all taxes and fees with United Airlines. It only makes one short stop in either direction in Houston, Texas.
You can use the Google Flights price calendar to find other cheap dates available this year.
While there are only a few dates that offer a deal below $700, there's a wide availability of flights in the $700 to $800 range over the next couple of months and in the fall. These prices are still an incredible deal.
