Toronto to Sydney or Melbourne, Australia - $700 to $783 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Australia

United Airlines is possibly showing flights from Toronto to Sydney, Australia for $783 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The flights have 2 stops each way.

So far I've only seen these on one booking site, (Fareboom) which can sometimes be the sign of a mistake, but there have been some pretty amazing prices to Australia lately, and I can get to the verified price page.

I have seen fares on Fareboom before, that were only showing up on Fareboom (some really cheap fares to Japan from Western Canada), and they were able to be booked just fine.

The available dates also coincide with the date ranges Qantas and Air Canada have been offering great prices on lately, which suggests these price drops are intentional.

The Qantas flights to Australia that have been available lately in the $900s roundtrip are still probably the ones you would want to book (especially the 1-stop ones).

But it's hard not to post what would be the cheapest flights ever from Toronto to Australia, even if they are on United.

Update 6/27 @ 10:00 AM EST - Checking this morning, these are no longer working. There's still some in late February and March 2018 showing up for $783 on Momondo, but the price jumps to $837 when you verify them on Fareboom.

1. Follow the instructions above

2. Try...

Feb 28 to Mar 14
Mar 13 to Mar 27
Mar 28 to Apr 11
Apr 4 to Apr 18



Update 7/9 - These are back today, for even less! Toronto to Sydney or Melbourne, Australia is available for $700 to 716 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Update @ 9 PM EST - I have heard from 2 different people who said that they were charged a higher amount by ExploreTrip than what was shown on the verified price page. I'm going to remove this update for now.

Update 7/10 @ 10 AM EST - A few people who booked these have been in touch with ExploreTrip. ExploreTrip explained that the pending charge on their card is higher, but when the charge actually posts in a few days, it will be the correct price that they booked at. These are still showing up on ExploreTrip today, so I have re-added the update to the blog post.

Update 7/12 - Today I have started to hear from people who booked this, that the posted charge to their credit card from Explore Trip is indeed the correct charge...


I apologize for the stress that I'm sure the higher 'pending charge' caused people while waiting. It's definitely not something I've seen before from a booking site, and if I had any idea that they would do it this way, I would certainly have warned people beforehand.

You should also be able to go to the Manage Reservations section of the United Airlines website, and enter your 6 character confirmation code to look at your booking.

What can you tell me about ExploreTrip?

As you've probably noticed, when you get to Momondo, the booking site showing the cheapest price for this deal is ExploreTrip.

They're definitely one of the lower quality booking sites out there, and not normally one I would recommend, if a higher ranked booking site were showing this price.

However, I can tell you that back in December of 2016 - ExploreTrip was the one showing the incredibly cheap fares from Toronto to Tokyo for $585 CAD roundtrip, and they issued the tickets just fine.

With previous deals that I've seen from United over the years, as long as the third party booking site is able to get the 13 digit ticket # issued, that's all that really matters, as this means your ticket has been issued by the airline.

You can use this ticket # to check your reservation directly on the airline's website. Your reservation is just as solid as though you booked with the airline itself.

Where the quality of the booking site comes into play is in terms of customer support, should you need any help with your booking somewhere down the line (modifying, cancelling, etc). Airlines don't offer customer support when you book through a third party site. So you would be at the mercy of ExploreTrip's support for help.
