Air Canada got my attention yesterday with some great deals on caribbean vacations.
I looked further and found that that the fine print excludes children in the discounts. Therefore these excellent deals are for couples, or friends, but not necessarily families or single parents.
If you search the site, you’ll see numerous packages available from Toronto. If you find something you like, then go to the main search page of Air Canada Vacations and search the same dates with your origin airport of YWG (Winnipeg). You will likely see the same deal, mere dollars more with a Winnipeg – Toronto connecting flight.
Travel dates for this sale are May thru October, but must be purchased by March 27th. You may also get a further discount by redeeming some of your aeroplan points. (26,500 points equals a $250 discount.)
The best deal…. the one that really got my attention was Aruba. As low as $864 per adult. (Flights, hotel, transfers, taxes, breakfast). I would absolutely love to go to Aruba. And the following 3 hotels are either on or near Eagle Beach.
Eagle Beach in Aruba consistently makes the “best beaches” lists. It is known for its soft white sand.
If you’d like a weekend getaway and would like to see some baseball, may I suggest a trip to Denver?
It’s a city I love, and a trip I took last fall. This is a heck of a bargain and a heck of a good time. With the new Major League Baseball season starting shortly, I thought you might enjoy this bargain coming up for travel late April.
I compared flying from YWG (Winnipeg), or DVL (Devil’s Lake), to DEN (Denver) and I found that departing from Devil’s Lake on April 22nd, will save a couple over $400 on this specific trip.
Comparisons were done on Expedia.ca an both flights are with United Airlines, and paid in Canadian funds, staying at the exact hotel same. Here are the screenshot results.
I have personally stayed at this Westin and loved it. The rooftop pool was a fabulous place to hang out and enjoy the sunshine. The Westin is about a 10 minute walk from Coors Field, home of the MLB Colorado Rockies.
On this particular weekend in April, the Rockies have 3 games against the LA Dodgers.
What if I told you that you could catch a flight, from Winnipeg, to Boston and see a couple Blue Jays games when they are hosted by the Red Sox at Fenway Park?
What if I told you that if you stayed a short commute from downtown, in a really well rated hotel, that you could have 3 nights and flights for under $800?
Would you be interested?
There is a little price war going on among the airlines right now on this route. You can fly from Winnipeg to Boston (YWG to BOS) as low as $326 taxes in and return. However, the flights that I like best seem to sit around $375 (which is still amazing! You can’t get to Vancouver for that!) Prices are lowest between April and late June.
Baseball teams often have a “home stand” which means that they are playing several games at home. If you choose the right dates, you could see the Red Sox play two or three different opponents.
Tickets are in addition to the above noted prices and can vary widely depending on where you like to sit in the park and where you purchase your tickets.
And, by the way, All Star tickets go on sale today. The big game is being played in San Diego this year at Petco Park, second week in July.
Under $4000 for a family of 4, will get you a week in a five star Riu Resort in Jamaica! Simply a fabulous deal!
Honestly, I’m happy if I can get Jamaica under $1600 per person. So, for under $1000 per person, I’m hitting the exclamation mark a whole bunch of times!!!!
I was in Jamaica less than a year ago. We stayed in the Montego Bay area. We drove past the Riu to get to our 4 star resort. It sure looked nice. But, I don’t really know. (As always, I urge you to go to Trip Advisor and check out the recent reviews whether you are staying in Regina, Anchorage, Negril or anywhere.)
For this bargain, found through Selloffvacations.com, you have a choice of 3 Riu locations. Montego Bay is the closest to the airport, but Ocho Rios and Negril have more exquisite beaches.
Here’s the screenshot of the total package price, as of March 15th 10pm. I’m not sure how long this price will last. It might be just until it sells out, or it could be one of their 48 hour deals. In any case, it’s a last minute deal, once you book it… grab those passports and start packing!
