Where are the most popular flight destinations in South America?

Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Peru and Colombia are the most popular flight destinations in South America.

What is the best way to travel around South America?

After flying to South America, you will have a few options for getting around. Buses will be your most dependable form of transport, with extensive services throughout the continent. Buses are the most affordable option, and they can get you from Venezuela all the way to the tip of Argentina. Planes are useful when you're short on time or need a break from bumpy roads. Prices for flying internationally within the continent can be quite high, so look out for South America flight deals and plan ahead. Domestic flights can be much cheaper and are an effective way to cross large countries. Driving a rental car through cities can be difficult, but a car comes in handy in remote areas without public transport, like Patagonia.

What are some things to do in South America?

South America is home to many world-famous attractions. Book flights to South America and trek to the mystical city of the ancient Incan Kingdom, Machu Picchu, in Peru. Marvel at the scenery of jaw-dropping mountains, lakes, and glaciers in Torres del Paine National Park, in the far south of Chile. Relax on the famous beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Or, party at the Rio Carnival, the biggest carnival of the year, during February or March.

How long is the flight to South America?

The duration of flights to South America will depend on the airports of your departure and arrival. In general, flights to South America take between 20h to 30h with at least one stop. For example, travelling from Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) to Rio de Janeiro/Galeão International Airport (GIG) in Brazil takes around 24h with two stops. Other popular destinations include Santiago, Chile, arriving at Santiago de Chile Airport (SCL). This flight takes around 26h with two stops from Indira Gandhi International Airport. Similarly, flights to Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, take around 30h, with two stops. Those flights operate from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (BOM). Cheap flights to South America will usually take longer, with more stops and a longer wait at each stop.

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

For cheap flights to South America, make sure you book early. After booking your flights to South America, make sure your passport is valid. Remember to check if you need a visa to enter your destination country; this depends on your passport type. Although credit cards are often accepted, carrying cash in the local currency or US dollars is recommended. This can help in emergencies or when travelling through remote areas. English is not widely spoken in South America, so it will be helpful to learn key phrases in Spanish or Portuguese and to download some apps for translation.
