American Airlines and US Airways are having a huge sale to Brazil. Flights to Rio in June can be bought for as low as $507rt, and flights to Sao Paulo in June and August are down to $503rt. The Brazilian currency (the Real) is down 50% from the levels of a few years ago, so now is a spectacular time to visit Brazil.

Use Google Flights to find the lowest-priced dates, and then go to AA.com or USAirways.com to search with the dates you found on Google Flights. The direct purchase links from Google Flights aren’t working with this deal.

Brazil requires a visa for US Citizens, so make sure you allow yourself enough time to get one if you don’t already have it taken care of. The Travel Broker in Murray can help with the process.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from $840rt

Published on 05/06/2015 by Justin

ANA has flights to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on sale for as low as $840rt for flights departing September and beyond. This is one of the lowest prices I’ve seen to this underrated destination. Get some beach time in the Pehrentian Islands or Langkawi, visit the tea plantations in the Cameron Highlands, visit the jungle and Mt. Kinabalu in Borneo, or experience some of the best scuba diving in the world in Sipadan.

If Malaysia isn’t on your list (and it should be!), Kuala Lumpur is Air Asia’s hub, with super-cheap flights to everywhere in Asia. They’re also offering some ultra-cheap air passes between $160 and $290 if you want to explore all around Asia!

Since this deal involves travel on two non-alliance airlines, you must purchase the ticket through an online travel agent (or traditional travel agent). The links below direct to Orbitz. Use their +/- 3 day search to find the cheapest dates.

Sample Dates

SLC to KUL (Kuala Lumpur) on September 2-14 for $840rt

Brazil from $780rt

Published on 04/16/2015 by Justin

American has put flights to most cities in Brazil on sale for around $800. The best deals can be found in June and August, but this varies by city. It has been several years since prices were below $800, and I have never seen prices so low to outlying cities like Foz do Iguacu and Florianopolis.

There are too many options to list here, but use Google Maps to zoom in on Brazil and pick your dates.

Remember, Brazil requires a visa for US Citizens, so plan in advance if you need to get one!
