Or at least the price war on flights to Iceland is heating up.
With Air Canada now offering flights from Toronto & Montreal, to Reykjavik and competing with Iceland Air on these routes, prices are dropping.
The same can be said for competition on the America east coast routes where Delta/Air France and KLM have dropped their prices to meet or beat those of WOW Air and Iceland Air.
Today, Delta/Air France/KLM are offering round trip, tax included flights from JFK Airport in New York, as well as Boston Logan Airport for as low as $316.(Or $421 Canadian funds if purchased through Expedia.ca) These bargain prices can be found on certain dates, from the end of August through to October 2017
Even though Westjet does not have flights to Iceland, you can nab a bargain and still fly part of the way with them. Use the website for Iceland Air and leave from Winnipeg, and you will see your connecting flight Winnipeg to Toronto with Westjet. Prices as low as $636 from Winnipeg.
To start your planning and learn more about Reykjavik start with their official tourism website.
Here’s a follow up piece to help you plan your itinerary if you were lucky enough to grab flights at that amazing deal last week.
If you’re visiting Montreal, and have even 24 hours to spare, do consider Quebec City. It’s a short and convenient Via train ride between cities. And the feel, look and movement of the cities is completely different.
I love Montreal for the shopping and the sports and the scene. It’s so modern and cosmopolitan. Yet, when I’m wishing for a getaway from stress and work, I dream about Quebec City. Old Quebec is simply the most breathtaking Canadian tribute to our heritage. I fail to find words beautiful enough to describe the way I feel in Quebec City.
But enough about me. You should see it for yourself! Here’s a few links to help with the research. I hope you can build your own Quebec experience and love it too.
Every time I get the chance, I ask a flight attendant about which Caribbean island is their favourite. I figure, they should know, right? Antigua comes up over and over again. So, I keep it on my radar looking for a bargain. It’s usually 30% more expensive than Mexico and twice the price of Cuba. But…. what if it is twice as nice? Well, finally a bargain. Someone should go and report back to the group!
Before you say, “that’s not the best bargain I’ve ever seen,” stop and look at the flights!
You casually drive up to YBR, Brandon’s convenient little airport about 11AM and hop aboard your Westjet flight just after lunch. One stop in Calgary for a plane change and then you’re directly off to Honolulu. You’re there that evening. Extremely convenient.
Now look at the way back. No over night in Calgary. Like it now? I feel like you can see the savings adding up. No gas to Winnipeg, no parking fees and no overnight in Calgary.
There are hotel packages less expensive, but I like the location of this one. We were there two years ago and stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki which is just about a mile further on this same stretch of beach.
