A flight across the Pacific to the Great White North is no easy feat, and making sure you have the best value flight is a must. The best flight deals from Australia to Canada are, generally, into the two largest airports: Vancouver and Toronto.
Canada is larger in size than Australia, so consider your itinerary and then look for a flight deal. If you want to check out destinations in the East like Niagara Falls or the Bay of Fundy, fly into Toronto or Montreal and then travel by car, train or regional flight. If you're hoping to see the Rockies and Pacific coast, fly into Vancouver.
Today's available deals on flights to Canada
How much are flights to Canada?
Vancouver is the only city in Canada you can fly direct to from Australia, and with that ease of travel often comes the cheapest fares. Expect to pay at least $1,000-$1,500 for fares from east coast cities like Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane. Occasionally, sale fares with connections through China are available for a few hundred less but do add time to the journey.
Connections to other cities in Canada, like Toronto, Montreal, Calgary or Ottawa, generally add a few hundred dollars to the fare.
When is the cheapest time to fly to Canada?
Autumn (September to November), late-winter (February) and spring (March to May) are generally the cheapest times to fly to Canada as the colder months bring unfavourable weather for sightseeing, unless you're planning on a ski holiday.
The exception to this is December and January when ski season and Christmas/New Year's travel is at its peak.
How far in advance should I book my flight to Canada?
Based on Skyscanner data, you should book your flight to Canada at least three weeks in advance if you're flying to Vancouver, and leave even more lead time if flying to other cities like Toronto or Montreal.
We also recommend booking flights whenever there is a sale for a price that's less than the "good deals" noted in the sections above, and not leaving it to the last minute, if you can avoid it, especially if there is a specific time of year you want to travel.
