Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest multicity round-trip airfare between L.A., Melbourne, and Sydney starts at $1,554 in early May (Air China). Add to that $134 per person for the flight between Melbourne and Cairns (Tiger Airways), $113 per person for the flight between Cairns and Sydney (Jetstar), $307 per person including taxes for four nights at the Hotel Ibis Melbourne, $296 per person including taxes for four nights at the Holiday Inn Cairns, and $324 per person for four nights at the Vibe Hotel Rushcutters, and you're spending $2,728. This travel deal gives you the same inclusions, including all taxes and fees, for $229 less.
