When's the best time to book Christmas flights to Canada?
The earlier you book, the more likely it is you’ll get cheap tickets. For most Canadian destinations, try to book before July to pounce on early-bird offers.
You can still get cheap tickets in last-minute deals if you missed the early promotional offers. But this involves a lot of risk that you won’t get a seat. Even if you miss the early bird offers, it’s recommended that you book your tickets at least two weeks in advance.
For those planning to stay for about a month in Canada, flying in towards the end of November or the first few days of December can save you 10-30% on your fare. According to Skyscanner data, flying back either side of 31 December will bag you a bargain.
Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to Canada
If you still can’t find a flight that fits your budget and travel plans, these tips may help you:
- Check prices on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day: There is less of a rush on important days as most people prefer not to travel during those times. You can take advantage of this phenomenon and book your tickets accordingly.
- Configure alerts: Prices fluctuate, especially when key dates are approaching. Use smart apps and tools with price alert services that allow you to track the fares and help you book the flights at the best time. Skyscanner and I Want That Flight are great for this.
- Choose a stopover: Direct flights to Canada are usually costlier than flights with a stopover. For example, flying from Sydney to Vancouver on Air Canada can cost almost double than if you fly via Xiamen on Xiamen Airlines.
- Fly to a cheaper destination: If you are flexible in the selection of your destination in Canada, then it’s worth noting that flights to Vancouver are 20-30% cheaper than those to Calgary or Toronto.
