Air Canada is having an ongoing Fall Getaway Sale and is offering some great fares to Australia at the moment. But what is making these fares even better is that third-party sites like Priceline are knocking off even more money from these discounted deals. One stop flights from the mainland U.S. to Melbourne (MEL) are seeing 145 dollar deductions when you book on their site. This may be some sort of glitch so I would recommend booking these ASAP if you are planning a trip Down Under. Flights to other cities in Australia like Sydney (SYD) and Brisbane (BNE) also get deductions using these third-party sites, but they are only around $40 off the total, still a better deal than booking directly on the Air Canada site.
Departures are available on Mondays and Wednesdays from late October through the end of November, with returns available in early December.
As an example below, I found seats departing San Diego on Monday, November 19 and returning from MEL on Wednesday, November 28, 2018. This is a great time to visit Oz as the weather is starting to warm up heading into Austral summer. If that's too soon for you to jet off, then you can take a look at fares from late January through early April which are about $45 more roundtrip, still an amazing value.
Priceline offers a free 24-hour cancellation, so if you are on the fence about it, book now and think it over. These additionally discounted fares will likely be gone by the end of today!
