South American Inland flights

by MissR6 Online Now Dec 28, 2005 at 2:32 AM

Hey Folks,

I will be traveling to South America next year for about 12 months. I would need flights from Lima/Peru to Cordoba/Argentina in July, from Cordoba to Santiago (or another Chilenian destination, depends on where I get my internship at) in November 2006 and another ticket from this Chilenian destiation to Rio de Janeiro in February 2007. I know that travel agencies don't have fares for 2007 by now.

Would you recommend booking all those inland flights while I'm already in South America? Would you recommend using a multiple-city-ticket or to by one-way-tickets instead? Can you recommend a good but cheap airline that serves the destinations I want to fly to?

Thanks so much for your help!

Best regards,
Michelle

    I would definately book your flights while you are there, since it is often more expensive to book them from abroad. I am jealous of your trip-sounds fantastic!

    check out http://www.taca.com

    Im hopefully going to be doing an extended trip through South America next year as well and have posed the same question. To me it seems a bit more sensible to buy one-way tickets when you're there, so that you're not tied down to being in a particular city on a particular day. Plus, we all know its not terribly difficult to find cheap-ish tickets when you're actually in the country. TACA is good for flying all around Central/South America, at least its a start!

    i agree, do your booking once there, often in argentina the prices are half for people booking internally than they are if you are trying from outside the country. aerolineas argentina and their partner austral are the local airlines, but they do have some stikes now and again, yet another reason to book later rather than sooner, Lanchile is operating in several south american countries and between them and are likely more reliable but a bit more expensive.
