Flights within Peru in October/November

Hi there. Is it better to book flights within Peru (e.g. Lima to Arequipa, Puerto Maldonado to Lima) at the same time when booking return flights from Canada to Lima (e.g. on sites like expedia)? Or would it be better to book directly on local airline websites (e.g. LAN) or at a travel agency in Peru once we arrive? Thank-you!

Book in advance via Expedia or direct with airlines.

You will find better prices buying in advance

We booked them on the same ticket as our international flight and it was much cheaper. Almost no additional cost to add on two internal flights. Booking separately would have been several hundred dollars extra in our case.

Which airline are you flying to Peru on? If it is LAN or TACA or an affiliated airline of either you would probably be better off building you domestic flights into your international ticket. LAN and TACA often offer deals where if you fly to Peru with them you can add a domestic flight for cheap or even free. If you have to purchase your domestic flights separately you are better off booking directly with the airlines. I would book your domestic flights as soon as you know your desired departure times and dates. You wont save any money by waiting to book until you are in Peru in fact by waiting you risk not being able to get on the desired flight. LAN and TACA both have fares which are for residents of Peru only so watch out when booking and stay away from their super cheap fares.

LAN www.lan.com DO NOT BOOK BASE OR BASE PLUS FARES!

TACA www.taca.com DO NOT BOOK PROMO FARES!

Last time I checked, LAN had lowered their flight fares Lima to Cusco, btw. I guess the competition finally got to them.

LC Busre seems to have dropped their Cusco flight.
