Cheap flights to Brazil
Brazil is the largest country in South America and a trip here is guaranteed to make you want to take up professional soccer, if nothing else. You absolutely cannot visit Brazil and not come home with a favourite world game team – even if you never knew a thing about football to begin with – take our word. Basking in the Brazilian sunshine is not only an opportunity to admire the azure seas that typify this corner of the globe, but will reveal quite a lot to you about the cultural idiosyncrasies of the locals. Head to Douglas Vieria beach if you can, most people who go there refer to it as paradise, and head down to Alter do Chao Para too, you heard it here first. Brazil is incredible and few travellers who arrive in this country leave disappointed. You’ll love it even more after arriving on the cheapest and most direct flights organised by Universal Traveller. And don’t forget, if you’re a teacher, student or under 26, you’ll save even more with our Student Flights airfares.

Brazil Holiday Packages
Brazil is not only bold, beautiful and breathtaking, it’s also big. Big adventures. Big opportunities. Tiny bikinis! It’s a big job to organise all the flights, accommodation, tours, meals and transfers you’ll need to enjoy your time in Brazil, so take the stress and the guesswork out of the picture and let our Universal Traveller consultants design a Brazil holiday package for you - including all of the above and more. Less painful than a Brazilian wax - we promise!
Where to start? The people, the cities, the passion. We recommend you actually make a start on your Brazilian adventure in Rio. Most famous for Carnaval and the statue of Christo on top of the scenic lookout of Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro also has sexy samba clubs and seductive sunsets - all against a spectacular backdrop of natural beauty. Slightly inland from Rio sit some simply cinematic colonial towns including Ouro Preto and Tiradentes, and hugging the coastline is Paraty – don’t forget to go there! The Brazil-Paraguay border is a photographer's dream, and the mighty waterfalls of Foz do Iguacu are a must-see. In the heart of Brazil is a dense section of the great Amazon jungle, Sao Paulo is to the south of Rio, you’ll then find Salvador to the north and the country’s true capital, Brasilia, inland from Rio - all which beckon travellers with unique culture, scenery and amazing cultural experiences.
