2-in-1 trip: Edmonton to Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles - $948 CAD roundtrip including taxes on Qantas

Sydney, Australia

Qantas (a great airline) has dropped the price of their February, March, April, and May 2018 flights from Edmonton to Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, Australia down to $948 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

A lot of these flights have long and/or multiple layovers from Edmonton, if you book a regular roundtrip flight.

However, it's also possible to turn these into 2-in-1 trips and visit both Australia *and* Los Angeles or San Francisco, and keep the price at $948 CAD roundtrip.

Doing it this way can also help get rid of the long and/or multiple layovers.

You can also find 3-in-1 trips that allow you to visit all 3 of these major Australian cities (Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne) on one trip for just $974 CAD !

Availability for travel

February, March, April, May, June 2018


How to find and book these flights

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Start by looking for a regular roundtrip flight.

Search for a flight from Edmonton to...

Sydney (SYD)
Brisbane (BNE)
Melbourne (MEL)

Try dates in February, March, April, May, and June 2018

TIP: Try starting with Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday dates. Once your search completes, click on 'Flexible Dates' and look for the flights that are $948.

The fastest flights may not be the flights at the very top of your search results, sometimes you need to check out the first 3 or 4 flights.

So, let's say you found a regular roundtrip flight that looks like this...



We can see that it's from March 13 to March 28, and involves 1 stop on the way there, and 2 stops on the way home.

3. Now we can try turning this into a 2-in-1 trip, and stopping over in Los Angeles or San Francisco for free.

Change the search type from Round Trip to 'Multi-City'

Search for a flight like this:

Edmonton to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles (LAX)
Los Angeles (LAX) to Edmonton

or

Edmonton to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
Sydney, Australia to San Francisco (SFO)
San Francisco (SFO) to Edmonton

or, if you'd like, try using Brisbane or Melbourne instead of Sydney.

4. As for the dates to use, for the first and last legs of the journey, try using start and end dates that are similar to the regular roundtrip flight dates that you found at the beginning, in the first step.

And then play around with the middle date, to give you more or less time in Australia vs Los Angeles.

For example, if the regular roundtrip dates that you found were:
March 13 to March 28

Try using these dates for your 2-in-1 trip:
March 13 to March 26 to March 28

With this 2-in-1 trip, we have 1 stop on the way to Australia. And then the flight home from Australia to Los Angeles is non-stop, and so is the flight from Los Angeles back to Edmonton.

3-in-1 trip: If you really want to get fancy, you may be able to find trips that allow you to visit multiple Australian cities *and* Los Angeles or San Francisco, for around $19 more

I would recommend first attempting to find a 2-in-1 trip using the instructions in the paragraph above.

Once you have found a 2-in-1 trip, try using similar dates to find a 3-in-1 trip.

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Click on Multi-City

3. Search for a flight like this:

Edmonton to Brisbane (BNE)
Brisbane (BNE) to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to Los Angeles (LAX)
Los Angeles (LAX) to Edmonton

or

Edmonton to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to Brisbane (BNE)
Brisbane (BNE) to Los Angeles (LAX)
Los Angeles (LAX) to Edmonton

Variations: You can try substituting San Francisco for Los Angeles.

You can also find 3-in-1 trips that allow you to visit 3 major Australian cities on one trip (Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane) for just $974 CAD !

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Click on Multi-City

3. Search for a flight like this:

Edmonton (YEG) to Melbourne (MEL)
Melbourne (MEL) to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to Brisbane (BNE)
Brisbane (BNE) to Edmonton (YEG)

4. As for the dates to use: focus on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday dates in February, March, April, May and June.

Here is an example:

Feb 7 to Feb 12 to Feb 19 to Feb 22

Update 9/26 - Air Canada has responded by dropping the price of their 1-stop flights from Edmonton (via Vancouver) to Sydney or Brisbane, Australia down to $920 CAD roundtrip including taxes

1. Go to FlightHub

2. Search for a flight from Edmonton to...

Sydney (SYD)
Brisbane (BNE)

3. Try dates in February, March, April, May, and June 2018

TIP: Try starting with Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday dates.

Once your FlightHub search completes, click on '1-stop only' on the left hand side.
