Want to honeymoon like English royalty? Head to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s favorite island spot – Seychelles. This exotic archipelago in the middle of the Indian Ocean rarely goes on sale, so make sure to take advantage of this possible mistake fare from Kenya Airways.

By booking a multi-city trip from New York JFK to Mahe and returning from the neighboring island Praslin, there seems to be a drop in price due to the fuel surcharge not being added, reducing this often $1,000+ fare to $357 roundtrip. This could be considered a mistake fare and will likely not last for long, so book ASAP and read our guide about what to when booking a mistake fare.

Using a multi-city search, you should be able to find dates and book via a third-party site that offers 24-hour cancellations. You'll be on the hook for a one-way flight between Mahe SEZ and Praslin PRI, but those are widely available for $41 one-way, which will bring the total on this dreamy deal just over the $400 price tag and you'll get to visit two islands
