Why so cheap you ask? It goes like this….

New Leaf Airlines announced a Winnipeg to Edmonton route. (That’s YWG to YEG in airline speak.) Rock bottom prices of $200 round trip taxes included. So, then, Westjet quietly beats the prices on the exact route. $198. That’s pretty fabulous, right? ┬áThe route flies Thursday to Sunday. That’s even more amazing. So, you can actually make a long weekend of it.

But here’s how you take the bargain to the next level, go to a package re-seller like Expedia.ca. Their automated system updates flight prices and calculates and discounts packages. All you have to do is get the right dates. So, I typed in any Thursday to Sunday in September, and voila! $300 per person, for a family of 4. Price includes Westjet nonstop flights, and 3 nights at a really fabulous hotel. #WIN

Why haven’t I tagged any of the airlines in this post? Prices disappear very quickly and when this word gets out, the deals will be snapped up.

If your kids would like to stay at West Edmonton Mall before school’s out, ┬áthe August 25-28th price is $359 per person at the Fantasyland hotel.

Other hotels available, from $250 per person (near the airport), up to $424 for the Fairmont.

One last tip. If you’re an Air Miles collector, log in through Airmilesshops.ca and you can collect Air Miles on your Expedia purchase.

You’re welcome! And yes, please share with your friends and family if you think they could use a little trip and a heck of a bargain!
