Paris, oh heavens, Paris!

If you’ve ever thought about a trip to Paris, it’s your time. If you’ve dreamt about Paris in the spring, it’s your time. If you have visions of proposing under the Eiffel Tower, it’s your time.

Paris. Return. Taxes in $410US

Fly from Grand Forks or Minot, North Dakota

Paired with a hotel for 6 nights, through Expedia.ca for about $900 CANADIAN funds. 4 star hotel, of course!

There are literally 1000’s of date combinations in this. From December, thru May 2017.

————————————> And it’s gone.

In less than an hour, the unbelievable prices are gone. I had just finished researching and had started writing. In fact, I was almost ready to publish this deal. Then, it disappeared. Flights from GFK & MOT back up to $1300US funds.

Sigh. I really had my hopes up of a d0-over trip of my failed November 15, 2015 trip. (You know, the one I cancelled, the day after the Paris attacks.)

Anyways, the lesson in this, is simply, sometimes amazing deals are fleeting. I can only surmise, not meant to be, in this case. Again.

Damn.

Sorry. I really am.

Girls’ Trip: Kelowna $400

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.
