When is the best time to book a flight to Samoa?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to Samoa, you should look to book at least 49 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Samoa?

Sunday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Samoa. Flying on Thursday will result in higher flight prices.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Samoa?

To get the best value, try booking a flight at midday when visiting Samoa. Generally the prices will increase for flights in the afternoon as these tend to have higher demand.

Western Samoa is a volcanic land of lava fields and waterfalls, lush rainforests, towering cliffs, blowholes, soft, sandy beaches and great swells. Then there are the ties between Samoa and Australia and New Zealand that go way back (in 1962 Samoa became independent of New Zealand). Another reason why cheap flights to Samoa are in high demand is the political situation in Fiji, which has cast a shadow over relations with Australia in recent years. Whatever you fly to Samoa for, you can be sure that you’ll receive a warm welcome from the Samoans.

The Independent State of Samoa consists of two islands, Upolu and Savaii, and seven other islands. Upolu has the capital (Apia), the international airport and most of Samoa’s population. Savaii, an one-hour ferry ride away, is larger, more remote and consequently less developed.

If you are lucky enough to get to Cape Mulinuu on Savaii for sunset, you can rest assured that you’ll be one of the last people in the world to see the sun set that day. Legend has it that this is also the place where the dead pass into the underworld.

Golfers and big-game fishermen will also enjoy a visit to Samoa. While beach fales and resorts are being rebuilt or restored on the south coast after last year’s tsunami, the best way to help Samoans is by holidaying in their beautiful country.

How long is the flight to Samoa from Australia?

Flights into Samoa are available from several areas in Australia. Brisbane offers flights into Apia which are nonstop or have one or more stops during the flight. The typical flight length is about 4h 55m in duration and lands in Apia Faleolo Airport. When leaving from Melbourne, some flights last around 8h 50m in length but can be much longer at 18h 25m. Travellers can also leave through Sydney, Adelaide, Gold Coast, Newcastle, and Perth into Apia in Samoa.

Which cities offer direct flights to Samoa?

Direct, nonstop Samoa flight deals are available when leaving from Brisbane, Australia. Some of the airlines offering these flights are Samoa Airways, Fiji Airways, and Air New Zealand. This is the only location that offers direct flights, but many others have stopover flights available. For example, Melbourne offers stopover flights from Air New Zealand, Fiji Airways, and Samoa Airways. Flights from Adelaide into Samoa are provided by Jetstar, Samoa Airways, Qantas, and several others.

What is the best way to travel around Samoa?

There are several options for getting around Samoa. The Samoa Shipping Corporation offers passenger ferries between Salelologa and Mulifanua that take about an hour. There are also many inexpensive taxies available in Apia but they’re not metered so the price needs to be negotiated. Travellers can also ride buses with wooden benches and bright colours. Beyond the main bus terminals, passengers wave their hand to stop the bus at their destination. Bicycles, scooters, and cars can also be rented.

What are some things to do in Samoa?

One of the top places to visit in Samoa is the Aleipata district which is filled with traditional houses, beaches with white sand, and waterfalls. There are also stretches of rainforest to explore where new species are continuously being discovered. The Palolo Deep Marine Reserve is another place to visit where guests can surf, snorkel, and dive. The largest old structure in Polynesia, Tia Seu Ancient Mound, is also available to visit on the eastern end of Savai’i Island. Auala Green Turtle Conservation gives guests the chance to see turtles who are about to be released into the wild. The area also has many hiking routes for everyone from the beginner to the expert. Another place to check out is the Tafua Peninsula Rainforest Preserve which is a habitat for the indigenous and endangered tooth-billed pigeon which is the Samoan national bird.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Samoa?

When flying to Samoa from Australia, travellers need a passport that’s valid for at least six months beyond the date of departure. There’s no need for a visa for a stay up to 60 days. Those who wish to stay up to 60 days more can apply at the Apia immigration office. In addition to the passport, travellers need to show proof of a return ticket into Australia.

Samoa has a Tropical climate. There are two seasons. The wet season runs from December to April when temperatures average 29 degrees. The dry season extends from May to November. Temperatures are slightly cooler, averaging 22 degrees. Cyclones are a risk between November and April.

When is the best time to fly to Samoa?

Off Season: 

There’s not really a low season on Samoa, but during the rainy season (with the exception of December to mid- January) there are not as many tourists.

Samoa insider information

  • Robert Louis Stevenson, the 19th-century novelist and poet, who wrote Treasure Island, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Kidnapped, spent his final years on the Villa Vailima estate. The 314-acre site is now a museum. Stevenson was much loved by Samoans and called Tusitala, which means “Teller of Tales”.
  • The Aleipata District on Upolu has the most wonderful beaches. The snorkelling, swimming and kayaking are great.
  • Tipping is not encouraged on Samoa, but there are custom fees to visit beaches and historical sites. Nude and topless swimming and sunbathing is prohibited. Visitors are expected to wear a lavalava (sarong) pants or shorts and teeshirt if visiting the village from the beach.
  • The Papase’ea Sliding Rocks in Seesee are about 5km outside of Apia. The entry fee to these natural waterslides is just a couple of dollars.
  • Surfing hot spots on Savaii are Lano, Ananoa Beach, Manase and Fagamalo. On Upolu, surf between Apia east and Cape Utumauu, or between Matautu and Matatufu.
