Read one of the “How to Get the Best Deal” guides on YYZ Deals and you will definitely feel better equipped to make the travel decisions you’ll need to make in order to put together a cheap flight and vacation package from Toronto.
Search with Google Flights: in Chris’s experience, it the easiest-to-use travel search engine when you’re trying to source the best deal on a flight from Toronto. Plus, remember, Google paid millions of dollars for access to the airlines’ airfare data so the information must be accurate and thorough.
Be flexible: when searching for the best deal on a flight from Toronto, be flexible with your departure and return dates by three or four days. Sometimes a difference of a single day can equal attractive savings on a flight, hotel accommodations, packages and all-inclusive vacations.
Last-minute flights don’t equal last-minute deals: After years of conducting travel research and analysis, Chris has found that 99% of the time, cheap, last-minute flights from Toronto don’t exist. In most cases, a last-minute flight is almost always expensive.
Don’t fly when everyone else is: It makes sense that when demand is high, so will be the prices. That’s why one of the simplest ways to score a cheap flight and travel deals from Toronto is to avoid booking during high-demand times such as statutory holidays, winter break and school vacation times.
How long should you wait before you book? If you come across what you think is the best, cheapest flight from Toronto but wonder if the airfare still might go down even further, watch it and then book your flight around two months (8 weeks) before the departure date. Chris has found that, generally, it’s around this 8 week mark that airfare prices start to move up.
