Blitz Deal: Thanksgiving or Christmas in Bali for $532 Roundtrip

by jeffreyOctober 17, 2014

As reported here on Flyertalk, you can book fares from select Pennsylvania airports to Bali, Indonesia for around $532 roundtrip, all-in.

The Deal

  • Active departure airports: Philadelphia-PHL, Allentown-ABE, Harrisburg-MDT or Scranton-AVP
  • Destination: Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport, Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia-DPS.
  • Minimum stay: 14 days for the cheapest fares
  • Active dates: October 22, 2014 (earliest departure date) to May 24, 2014 (latest return date).
  • Price range: $532-582 depending on the dates and the carriers with a 14-day minimum stay in Bali (sounds horrible, I know!). Price jumps to the ~$750 range when the stay is less than 14 days but it’s still significantly cheaper than full price alternatives.
  • You can pretty easily include a stopover at Seoul-ICN on either the outbound or return trip.
  • Side note, we took our honeymoon to Bali and had an amazing time: All about our Honeymoon trip: Bali, Jakarta, Singapore and the Maldives
At the Ubud Palace in Bali:  Puri Saren Agung Ubud

How to Get It

  1. Head to Google.com/flights
  2. Enter departure airport as “MDT, PHL, ABE, AVP” (this will show you all of the options from the area) and arrival airport as “DPS“.
  3. If you have specific dates you’d like to travel, enter them in, or you can just click the calendar and Google Flights will begin searching many combinations and show a calendar of low fares.

  5. Google Flights is excellent for quickly and easily viewing the flight options but they cannot provide a direct link for booking on this particular itinerary.

  6. At Orbitz, enter you specific travel dates and city pairs and begin a search. The fares will be appx ~$7 more than the price quote on Google Flights; this is Orbitz’s brokerage fee for the booking.

  7. You will select your flights and then make the booking like normal. I recommend entering a Delta SkyMiles number at the time of booking–it will automatically and instantly populate in your Delta account and will serve as a good confirmation that the booking has gone through successfully.

Don’t forget:

BOTTOM LINE: This is a pretty awesome deal for a flight from the Northeast U.S. to Bali–there’s plenty to keep you busy for 2+ weeks but it’s also quite cheap and easy to hop a ULCC to a neighboring city like Jakarta, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur.
