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.
Two reasons to book your flight and hotel separately. There are some hot bargains on flights and hot bargains on hotels for Black Friday. Get the best of both.
Marriott Hotels offering rates as low as $79. Booking Nov 25th to 28th only.
Are you interested in Abbotsford or Edmonton? Flight prices around the $200 mark, return and taxes included with Westjet. Even dates over Spring Break 2017. For example: $187 to Edmonton March 26-30th.
Or what about Nashville, Tennessee? Flights from Winnipeg are on sale for $314 taxes included, with Air Canada. March 1st to 7th. OR, if you’d like to catch a Winnipeg Jets hockey game, (13th of March) fly from the 9th to 16th for $356 and make a holiday of it.
