Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
It looks like South American Oneworld alliance carrier LATAM is currently offering amazingly low fares from Miami (MIA) to several destinations in South American including Asunción, Paraguay (ASU), Buenos Aires, Argentina (EZE) and Santiago, Chile (SCL) starting at just $294 round-trip. LATAM is a full-service carrier, so you’ll receive a free checked bag, meals, entertainment and more. Keep in mind that many of these fares involve two stops and/or long/overnight layovers, but if you’re willing to take the long way to these South American destinations, it’s a fantastic deal. Tickets to these cities rarely dip below $800-$900 round-trip. Since these are most likely mistake fares, be sure to keep these things in mind before you book.
If you’re traveling to or through Paraguay via Asunción’s Silvio Pettirossi International Airport (ASU), you’ll need to pay a “departure tax” of $18, as mandated by local authorities. If you’re staying in Paraguay, you’ll need to arrange a tourist visa. We recommend using Allied Passport to help expedite what can be a very confusing and time-consuming process. If you’re visiting either Argentina or Chile, you’re not required to have a visa before you travel.
