I would be cautious purchasing with traficoperu.com... I just did a quick search for flights on traficoperu.com and lan.com and the price of the flights traficoperu.com are listing do not match the price of the flights on LAN's website. It looks to me like they are the BASE fares which you are not eligible to purchase. Better to be safe than sorry...maybe contact traficoperu.com and make sure they understand where you are from and which tickets you need/want.

You can purchase the BASE PLUS fares through the LAN Peru (Spanish) website. Just go to www.lan.com and choose "PERU" as you country of origin. The site will be in Spanish but its laid out just like the engligh site and you can use GOOGLE TRANSLATE to help you if needed.

The BASE PLUS fares are fair game for anyone you just have to watch that you dont buy the BASE fares as these are for residents of Peru only and you will get charged an additional $178.50 per ticket when you go to board the plane.

You should also check out these airlines which offer flights from Lima to Cusco and have no restrictions on who can purchase the tickets. You should be able to purchase the tickets through their websites with a credit card but be aware that most companies use "Verified By Visa" so if you have a VISA credit card you should make sure its signed up for that before you try to purchase the tickets.

Rinkalinka, PatQuito is right, price and fares are based in restrictions.

I helped buying this ticket in Peru for a friend from USA because peruvianairlines fare she got on internet in USA is more expensive.Same fares for peruvians or foreigners in peruvianairlines, LAN has more expensive fares for foreigners.

My friend is renting me a room, will visit Arequipa, Cuzco and perhaps Nazca.

hello,

We flew from cusco to Lima back in March with Taca for about $85 one-way.

If time is not an issue, and I would certainly do this next time, just turn up at the airport. Several airlines operate this route.

Regards.
