When is the best time to book a flight to South America?

The price you pay for your flight to South America may vary depending on when you book. For the best chance of a lower fare, look to book 60 days in advance of your trip. Fares are likely to increase a fortnight or so before your departure date.

Which day is cheapest to fly to South America?

The cheapest flights to South America are usually found when departing on a Tuesday. The departure day with the highest cost at present is Friday.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to South America?

Flights in the afternoon are typically the cheapest time of the day to fly to South America. Flights at noon are usually the most expensive.

Where are the most popular flight destinations in South America?

Popular flight destinations in South America include Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile.

South America embodies a soul that’s found nowhere else in the world. And each country has its own traditions and cultures; from the highly extrovert Brazilian samba to the deeply sacred pilgrimage site of Las Lajas in Colombia.

The two largest countries in the continent, Brazil and Argentina, are perhaps the most diverse. And most travellers booking flights to South America choose to combine a trip to both countries. Brazil is a blend of diverse cultures: Portuguese, native Indian, African, European, Middle Eastern and Asian all living in this wild and exciting land. While in Argentina its European influences dominate its art, architecture, literature and lifestyle. But what both countries do have in common is the Iguazú Falls, the spectacular 275 cascading waterfalls which are taller than Niagara Falls and possibly one of the most unforgettable sights in the world.    

North of Argentina is Bolivia, a country nestled between the Andes and the Amazon rainforests. Because of its isolation the country has retained the ancient traditions of its ancestors, making it a fascinating and mysterious place to visit. Bolivia’s neighbour, Peru, is just as captivating; its history dates back to the Inca Empire with Machu Picchu, its most illustrious symbol. The countries in the northern end of South America including Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela might not be as renowned for their ancient wonders as the other countries but what they do have is a natural beauty – spectacular landscapes, tropical rainforests, and pristine beaches – that makes them inimitable.

South America climate

South America can be split into four climatic zones: tropical, dry, cold and temperate. Depending on which area of the continent you’re visiting, the elevation and weather factors including rain and wind contribute to the climate variations, making it unpredictable and erratic in some areas.

When is the best time to fly to South America?

Argentina and Brazil, both in the Southern Hemisphere, can be visited all year round but most people prefer to book flights to South America during peak season – mid December to early March – when the weather is hot and humid. But if you’d rather avoid paying top dollar for South America flights and accommodations, then the best time to go is in winter between the months of June and October. Chile, also in the Southern Hemisphere, has climactic variations from the north to south. The north can be visited at any time of the year while central and southern Chile should be avoided from June to September when snowfall can get heavy.

The Andean countries including Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Colombia and Peru have two distinct seasons: wet and dry, and depending on the altitude and proximity to the equator, each country’s peak season will differ slightly.

Bolivia has the most unpredictable weather in South America, thanks to its topography and altitude. Generally the best time to visit is during the dry season between May and October. Peru is another country with complicated weather due to its high elevation and close proximity to the Pacific Ocean. The best time to visit is summer, from January to March when days are hot and humid.

However, if you prefer public transport, the best way to get around the city is to use the TransMilenio or a private taxi. If you book flights to South America and end up in Rio de Janeiro, the best way to get around the city is either on foot or by taking a private taxi. If you want to explore on your own steam, consider hiring a car at the airport. If you find yourself in Sao Paolo, using ride-hailing apps is typically the best way to move around the city. If you're planning to travel around the country and visit various cities, car hire would be the best option for you.

If you're travelling from Manila to Sao Paolo, expect to find flights operated by Qatar Airways with a stopover at Doha Hamad Airport and a total travel time of around 26h.

What do I need to do before my flight to South America?
