Yes, it’s still technically summer, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about holiday travel. Especially when holiday travel could involve heading to a tropical paradise like Tahiti.
According to Scott’s Cheap Flights, getting to French Polynesia could be in the cards for Thanksgiving and holiday travel dates thanks to a few seriously good flight deals.
According to the site, Delta is running a truly spectacular deal for flights to Papeete, the capital of Tahiti, from cities including Austin, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; Phoenix, Arizona; and San Jose, California.
Though prices vary by route, the deals are all taking place for travel between November 2018 and March 2019, excluding Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.
For example, if you’re looking to have a long weekend in Tahiti, you can fly from Austin on Saturday, Dec. 8 to Wednesday, Dec. 12 for just $656 round-trip.
Departing from Charlotte, would-be travelers can get round-trip tickets from Saturday, Dec. 1, to Wednesday, December 5 for $655. Over those same dates, guests can depart from Pheonix for just $652 round-trip as well.
Those looking for a longer stay should try departing from San Jose, California. From there, guests can travel from Tuesday, Nov. 6 to Wednesday, Nov. 14 for just $629.
Travelers departing from San Francisco can also score great deals on French Bee, one of the newest airlines to operate non-stop flights to Tahiti. For example, you could find tickets from Friday, Nov. 2 to Thursday, Nov. 8 for just $647 on the nonstop, round-trip route.
If you spring for the longer stay, you can spend all the money you saved on flights on an island hopping adventure to a few of the archipelago's lesser-known islands such as Rangiroa, Taha’a, and Moorea. But, even a few days on the serene island of Tahiti is well worth the long-haul flight. Especially since deals like this are few and far between.
