Nope, $185 isn’t for a one night stay in a Toronto hotel. It’s for a round trip Westjet flight. Taxes and airport fees included!
It’s an unadvertised deal. A price match to New Leaf’s bid for Canada’s business. You won’t find this deal on Westjet’s twitter feed or on a fancy rotating banner on their website. Heck, it doesn’t even register on their ‘best price calendar.’ But it’s there!
Prices subject to change without notice. Grab a deal while you can. Maybe take in a Blue Jay’s game in late April? Or jet away with your girlfriend for a romantic February weekend in the big city.
Set an open price alert on your chosen route. Pick your dream budget price. Then let Kayak work its magic. If/when your flight comes into budget Kayak will send you an alert immediately.
Example: Winnipeg to Maui (YWG to OGG); open dates; price alert $410
I know that $525 is an typical “good” price for the route. I have seen it as low as $408. I kick myself for not booking it then. I’ve seen $424 a few times too. So if Kayak alerts me to a deal of $410 or less, I’ll at least know that I have an option.
This is the perfect “set it and forget it” APP. Let Kayak do the leg work, while you focus on family and more important things.
Westjet is offering some nearly unbelievable prices on the Winnipeg to Kelowna route. The return trip, taxes included is just $187. We have the upstart airline, New Leaf, to thank for this price war.
To take this deal to the next level, we turn to Expedia.ca to pair it with a hotel. Choosing a well rated hotel you can pair it up for just $385. This is a 3 night vacation with fabulous flight times. Both the hotels shown include breakfast, adding extra value.
The weather at the end of April should be lovely. You could enjoy a game of golf or take a winery tour. To plan your activities visit Tourism Kelowna.
Price wars are very volatile, meaning the prices could disappear without notice. It’s not like an advertised sale with dates. Act quickly and you could be bragging about the deal all year long.
If you love winter and winter sports, you might want to take your ambitions north.
I’ve rarely seen such a deal on Yellowknife, NWT.
To my surprise, you can leave Brandon Manitoba at 6am and arrive just after lunch in Yellowknife. The Westjet service will cost you as little as $325 if you choose the right dates. From Winnipeg, also $325.
If you’ve got a friend in Fort McMurray, Alberta do let them know of the sale on their destination as well. And ask them if it’s ever been as low as $313, taxes in, return flights.
