A koala in Australia

Qantas has once again dropped the price of their flights from Kelowna to cities in Australia, this time down to between $865 and $975 CAD roundtrip.

And this time there are 2019 dates available.

You can also turn these into 2-in-1 trips and visit both Australia and San Francisco (or Los Angeles), for about the same price (instructions below).

You can also look at flying into one Australian city, but home from another, for about the same price (instructions below).

Availability for travel

August, September, October, November, first half of December 2018

February, March, April 2019

How to find and book this deal

1. Try a Google Flights search like this one...

Google Flights: Kelowna to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
^^^ look for the dates that are $1019 roundtrip

Google Flights: Kelowna to Brisbane, Australia (BNE)
^^^ look for the dates that are $1017 roundtrip

Google Flights: Kelowna to Melbourne, Australia (MEL)
^^^ look for the dates that are $1003 roundtrip

- click on the departure date box to open up the calendar view and browse for cheap date combinations

- look for the dates that are somewhere between $1003 and $1019 roundtrip.

2. Go to Skyscanner or Flighthub or Kayak

- search for a flight from Kelowna (YLW) to...

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

- use the same dates you found on Google Flights

- the price on Skyscanner or Flighthub will usually be around $75 to $150 cheaper than what you see on Google Flights.

You can also turn these into 2-in-1 trips, and visit both Australia *and* Los Angeles, for $922

1. First, try finding a normal roundtrip flight to Australia, using the Google Flights links above.

For example, let's say you found a flight from Kelowna (YLW) to Sydney (SYD), from Feb 13 to Feb 27.

2. Now go to Flighthub or Kayak

- Change the search type from 'Roundtrip' to 'Multi City'

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Kelowna (YLW) to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to San Francisco (SFO)
San Francisco (SFO) to Kelowna (YLW)

- For the first and last legs of the journey, use the dates from the normal roundtrip flight that you found on Google Flights.

- You can play around with the middle date to give yourself more or less time in Sydney vs Los Angeles.

For example, here is a screenshot from Kayak of Feb 13 to Feb 24 to Feb 27.



You can also look at flying into one Australian city, but home from another, for $912

1. First, try finding a normal roundtrip flight to Australia, using the Google Flights links above.

For example, let's say you found a flight from Kelowna (YLW) to Sydney (SYD), from Feb 13 to Feb 27.

2. Now go to Flighthub or Kayak

- Change the search type from 'Roundtrip' to 'Multi City'

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Kelowna (YLW) to Sydney (SYD)
Brisbane (BNE) to Kelowna (YLW)

- Try the dates from the normal roundtrip flight that you found on Google Flights.

For example, here is a screenshot from Kayak of Feb 13 to Feb 27.



You'll notice the flight from Sydney (SYD) to Brisbane (BNE) is not included.

You can try a multi-city search on Kayak that includes the flight between the two Australian cities. It may only bump up the price by a little bit.

For example:

Kelowna to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to Brisbane (BNE)
Brisbane (BNE) to Kelowna (YLW)

Try a search like this one:

Kelowna (YLW) to Sydney (SYD)
