Cheap flights to Chile
Chile is a long and narrow country, stretching over half the length of the western border of South America. It is rich not only in culture but also in geographical delights. Things that you simply must do when you touch down in Chile include a stop-off at Reserva Nacional Pan de Azucar. This is where the desert meets the beach and the reality of this area is pretty stunning by all accounts, so bring your camera. If you feel like being inspired you will also need to go stargazing in Valle del Elqui. This spot is 5 hours north of the capital, Santiago, and you will find telescopes here for your stargazing purposes - it's absolutely not to be missed. You can also ski at Valle Nevado and travel down the famous Chile wine route through Valparaiso. Universal Traveller can make your dreams of experiencing all of this in Chile come true, and we also have the cheapest and most direct flights to get you there with a bunch of well-known international carriers.
Flights departing Australia for Chile will land in Santiago’s Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport (SCL) - the most popular entry point not only into Chile, but also into South America as a whole. To get from the airport to your accommodation and the city centre, a range of public transport and taxis are at your disposal. Most hotels and resorts will also offer a shuttle service.
Direct flights from Australia to Santiago depart from Sydney. The flight time from Sydney to Santiago is under 13 hours. Flights from other capital cities will require a domestic flight to Sydney. Alternatively, if you’re feeling adventurous, take the opportunity for a short stop across the ditch in beautiful Auckland, New Zealand or even Dubai. During the flight, airlines will provide drinks and a meal as well as various in-flight entertainment. For specific services, check out our airline guide.

Chile Holiday Packages
Chile has so much to offer that planning the trip alone can make your brain feel like it’s on fire. Let our Universal Traveller travel consultants set you up an individualised holiday package to make sure you get not only the cheapest flights, but all the current specials on accommodation and tours.
Chile has much to offer on top of its growing and exciting capital, Santiago. Nearby, set in the hills, is Valparaiso, which will surprise and stun with steep streets and artistic edgy culture. A short journey south of the capital will land you among the finest vineyards, and the northern tip offers endless waves in Arica, close to, but in great contrast to, the dry Atacama Desert. Head south to find hiking opportunities in dense national park on the edge of the wild Pacific Ocean. Then dare to continue further south for rugged adventure among the rivers, glaciers and the rainforests of Patagonia. Make sure to cross off a trip to Easter Island and gaze upon the moai, huge statues that dot the island.
