Doesn’t it seem like all the great package vacations are out of Toronto? Tired of “them” getting all the deals, but not us, fine, prairie folk?
So, here’s my tip: Do it….search those Toronto deals and find the one you like. Salivate, drool, dream and then write down the dates.
Next, take those dates and go to the search page of the package provider. (Example, Air Canada Vacations). NOW, search for that destination, and specific dates, but use your preferred airport. (Like Winnipeg, or Regina, etc) Chances are, your Toronto deal will be there with a minimal fee added for the connecting flight.
Bingo! It’s that easy to find a deal when there are none (shown) for Winnipeg.
But wait… there’s more!
The Winnipeg search actually reveals two additional hotel offerings (see below) at an even better rate! (But before you jump at ANY deal, make sure to read the recent reviews from Trip Advisor and see exactly what people are saying. Is it really the right hotel for you? The cheapest is not always the most suitable, but what if it IS?)
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.
