Fiji Airways has been having some great sales lately, but this is the best deal we've seen from them all year! Fly from Los Angeles (LAX) to destinations in Australia like Sydney (SYD), Melbourne (MEL), or Brisbane (BNE) starting at $460 roundtrip. But those insane prices aren't the best part of these fares. You can stopover in Fiji for free along the way!
Fiji Airways has a generous free stopover program for connections of less than 72 hours. So you can mix in a 2-for-1 on these fares with and include an extra island getaway on either leg of your journey.
Dates vary by route, and you'll need to purchase through a third-party site like Expedia, Orbitz, or Priceline to see these price drops. Which shave off around $60 than the listed rates. Departures are available through May then again from late August through early December.
Routes with lower third-party rates include:
Los Angeles to Melbourne $460 roundtrip
Los Angeles to Sydney $473 roundtrip
Los Angeles to Brisbane $474 roundtrip
These hidden prices are even less than what you'd pay with only the nonstop option to Fiji (NAN) on its own! Since these reduced prices are unadvertised, they may disappear at any moment so book accordingly if you see something that works with your travel plans.
If you want a longer stay in Fiji prices will jump up a little because you'll have to pay taxes. But they are completely reasonable for the extra time spent in paradise. About $100 extra roundtrip for stays longer than the 72-hour free window.
Here's a trip departing LAX on Monday, May 13 with a stopover in Fiji NAN from Wednesday through Friday (2.5 days), then flying to SYD on May 17 returning to LAX on May 28, 2019.
Here's an example of a trip with a longer stay in Fiji, over a week. As you can see it is only about $100 more.
