Canada is renowned for its vast and untouched landscapes, unique blend of cultures and fascinating history.
Here’s how you can experience all this and more by getting great deals on cheap flights.
Canada, as the largest country in north America, and second biggest worldwide, experiences a huge range of weather. Which means it can offer a truly year round destination.
In the winter months places like Whistler and Revelstoke bustle with ski tourists. And big cities like Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal have ample attractions to keep you busy whatever time of year you visit. However, if you’re not visiting for winter sports action, then be aware that Canada can get very cold in the winter months.
The most populated region, Ontario, has a less extreme climate, as do most of the regions bordering the United States. Further north as you approach the Arctic Circle, conditions can be challenging in winter months.
As one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, more than 15 million people visit Canada each year, many of them from the UK. So, as you would expect, flights during school holidays and in the summer months are more in demand so it’s always worth booking early to grab a cheap flight to Canada.
It’s not all about when you travel from London to Canada, though. It’s possible to find cheaper flights all year round if you use Expedia.
Firstly, make sure that you use the ‘Nearby Airports’ option when conducting your search. You’ll find this under the departure location. This allows you to explore the best deals flying from other UK airports.
If you are searching for flights to Canada from UK, try selecting all London airports rather than either just Heathrow or Gatwick. This will expand your search options and may result in you finding a better deal.
Being flexible on dates and time of travel also means you can get cheaper fares. Click the ‘Show flexible dates’ section to see how much you could save.
Finally, if you are able to be flexible about your arrival destination you might get your flight to Canada at a great rate.
