Now’s the time to buy your flight if you plan on flying back from Ecuador to visit the US/Canada in the next few months!
Wait a month to buy and any reasonably priced fare from now until May will be long gone.
Working next to the Quito airport in my hotel for over a year and a half now, I’ve got a good feel for whens best and least expensive to travel to/from Ecuador.
For an expat living in Ecuador, we often have the luxury of picking and choosing when to fly back to North America.
So why not go when its cheaper?
Right now, its cheaper.
The high season, and when the flights are more expensive, is late December to early April. Then again from Late June to early September.
The low season when you’re most likely to find deals is in May, October/November (now), and until early December.
The highest of the high season and when you are least likely to find flight deals is in January and July. (Don’t ask me why, it is what it is.)
Right now, TAME, Ecuadors national airline, has a few low season specials available until the end of this week.
-Quito to Fort Lauderdale USA for $455 round trip with all taxes and fees included. Travel whenever you want over the next few months if you buy this week. (New route special). Normal price Quito to Miami area around $6-800 USD.
–Quito to Baltra (Galapagos) round trip $268 (for residents of Ecuador) all taxes and fees included except park fee. This is the CHEAPEST I’ve ever seen, usually the flights are in the $450 range round trip.
I recommend buying one of these flight specials NOT online, but in one of the TAME kiosks in the big malls in Ecuador.
LAN, a Chilean airline that flys extensively to Ecuador has an even better special from Quito to Miami, but with restricted dates. This is the BEST price I’ve seen in two years!
– $354 Quito – Miami round trip all taxes and fees included… but must fly from DEC 10-16 and fly back between JAN 13-24. Doesnt get any cheaper than this, wait a few days and this price will be gone! I recommend buying this deal QUICK via kayak.com .
– $429 Quito – NEW YORK Roundtrip, all taxes and fees included. Promotion offered this week by LAN on their site.
