Air Canada Vacations: Las Vegas For Only $340

Posted by on July 10, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Air Canada Vacations: Las Vegas For Only $340

Looking for a cheap vacation? Air Canada Vacations has a some very hot deals on trips to Vegas that start at only $340. This includes your flight, hotel and all taxes and fees! You just need to pay for your food, drinks and activities (except the ones included in this package!).

Not only do you get hotel and flight included in this package, there are some other perks added. First, you’ll get to choose your seats free. You’ll also get free round-trip transportation to your hotel. On top of this, you’ll get free access to the Maple Leaf Lounge, which is a huge bonus, as this is worth about $25 a person and as our own Mooser Anna has used it a few times in Toronto, she says it is great. You get complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, along with televisions, free WIFI, quiet zones and more. This saves you from sitting in a restaurant, paying $20 or more for a meal just so you have a spot to sit. I’m not done with the perks yet. You’ll also get a free tour to Laughlin, 2-for-1 helicopter, airplane and bus tours and priority check-in and late checkout.

Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? Now, the bad parts. I’ve heard Vegas is stifling hot in the summer. But, it is the desert, what else would you expect. All of the hotels and bars are air conditioned, so ignore the heat. Sit in the hotel’s pool with a drink all day. For less than $350, you can’t do that here for more than two days! The other is that this flight is with Air Canada Rouge, which I’ve heard is notorious for not being a fun airline to fly with. Apparently there is very little legroom, no WIFI and no televisions, but to this I say “whateves”. Your flight is just a small part of your vacation and I’m sure for the savings you are getting you can handle it for the four or so hours you are on the plane!

Air Canada: Save $330 per Couple to Mexico & Caribbean

Posted by on June 24, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Air Canada: Save $330 per Couple to Mexico & Caribbean

I don’t care what time of year it is, if there is an incredible deal that will allow me to go to Mexico or the Caribbean, I am making sure I check it out.  Right now over at Air Canada, they have a great deal that will save you on you travel to both Mexico or the Caribbean.  Save $330 per couple for just a few short days.

Saving $330 per couple is basically the equivalent to saving the cost of all the taxes or even more than that.

Some of the beautiful places you can travel to are places like Antigua, Turks and Caicos, Cancun and Punta Cana.  In fact, if you are traveling from Toronto, there are over 300 different package deals in total to choose from.

This deal will work for departures from 14 of Canada’s top airports and lucky me, Calgary is included! One deal in particular that caught my eye was the Calgary to Los Cabos deal for $434.36 plus $366.71 for taxes. That is for 7 night and they have a promotion to give you a $50 hotel credit as well. Not a bad deal at all!

Almost all of the deals are all inclusive, which is perfect because you wont need to worry about anything when you are down there costing extra.  All inclusive is the only way my husband and I will vacation now.

You will be able to get this deal for new bookings only and on select packages.  Valid for travel from June 1 and completed by Oct. 31, 2014. We sometimes get snow here in Alberta in October to heading to Mexico or somewhere else hot would be perfect!  There is a minimum of a 3 night stay but lets face it, who goes to somewhere hot and only stays 3 nights!  You can stay up to 14 nights total which is much more what I would be wanting to do.

Air Canada Promo Code: 20% Off Flights To Honolulu

Posted by on May 29, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Air Canada Promo Code: 20% Off Flights To Honolulu

Want to head to Hawaii this winter? Air Canada is giving you another reason to go, which is this fantastic promo code for 20% off your flight from anywhere in Canada to Honolulu.

Click here to book your dream trip @ Aircanada.com now

  • Coupon Code: ALOHAROUGE
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 10th June 2014

If there is somewhere I’d love to visit, it is Hawaii. If it is good enough for Oprah, it is good enough for me. Typically though, flights are mega-expensive because it is so far away, especially since I’m on the eastern side of Canada. Imagine my shock when I did a test flight and it was less than $400 from Toronto to Honolulu! And this is even including all taxes and surcharges, which usually kills the cheap price of the flight. With this new information, I might skip the heading to Florida that I was planning this Winter and hit up Hawaii instead. There is a layover in Vancouver, but I’ve never been there before either and it would be cool to try and get a long layover along the way.

Travel has to occur from November 21st, 2014 to April 30th, 2015, which is exactly when you’d probably want to get out of Canada. There is a maximum of nine people per booking, which works for me!

Just for fun, I checked on the Toronto price for the week of Christmas and flights were as low as $600, so if you really want to get your family something awesome for Christmas, check out this deal.

As always, Air Canada coupon codes are located in our forum, so if this deal doesn’t spark your fancy, see what else might do it.

Air Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off select flights within Canada

Posted by on May 28, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Air Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off select flights within Canada

Air Canada is offering 15% off select flights across Canada when you book today or tomorrow.

Click here to book your next flight @ Aircanada.com now

  • Coupon Code: TOGETHER
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 29th May 2014

This coupon is for routes within Canada excluding the following routes:

  • Toronto city’s airport – Montreal
  • Toronto Pearson – Montreal
  • Toronto Pearson – Ottawa
  • Toronto Pearson – Thunder Bay, ON
  • Toronto Pearson – Timmins, ON
  • Calgary – Cranbrook, B.C.

This coupon is valid for tango fares booked on Air Canada, Air Canada Express, and Sky Regional Inc. flights. With this coupon, you can actually travel between the 2nd of June 2014 all the way to the 10th of February 2015. However, there these blackout dates apply: October 10 to October 13, 2014 and December 18, 2014 to January 13, 2015.

Sometime within the next ten months, we are planning on visiting my husband’s brothers in Hamilton. Usually it is better timing flight-wise (and often cheaper) to fly into Toronto Pearson rather than try to get a flight directly to Hamilton. Nanaimo weather can also be unpredictable and planes do not leave if the fog is too thick. So I think we would ferry across to Vancouver and depart from Vancouver. I checked out what a flight from Vancouver to Toronto is running these days, and I could pick up a round trip ticket for $587. If I was flexible with my dates, I am sure iI could do better.

As always, Air Canada coupon codes are located on our forum.

Air Canada Vacations: Kids Stay, Fly & Eat Free This Summer

Posted by on May 8, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Air Canada Vacations: Kids Stay, Fly & Eat Free This Summer

I came across an absolutely fabulous deal that you don’t want to miss if you are travelling somewhere with kids by the end of September. Book in the next four days and your kid stays, eats and flies free at so many great resorts.

I am really interested in this deal, but unfortunately because you have to book by May 12th, I won’t be able to partake in it. I’d love to get the kids south and originally we talked about Disney but they all screamed when I suggested Mexico, which is quite alright with me. Just because we can’t go, it didn’t stop me from checking out the prices for my family and I was literally delighted, until I again remembered we are in the middle of moving our family across the province so a vacation is not on the radar. Bummer for me, great for you.

The best thing about this deal is that it applies to Sun Resorts which are family-friendly. This means you have a huge choice of kids activities and family-friendly accommodations. I have a family of five and most hotel rooms have a limit of four, so I did some research and found a number of resorts that had rooms that accommodated us without a huge extra cost (although some were just ridiculous). Seriously though, your kids will not just stay free and eat free, they fly free too and this is going to save you so much money as I don’t think Air Canada offers kid’s airfares anyway. You pay for the seat, no matter your age.

Think about this: the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya hotel and spa is a 4 Air Canada star hotel and you can go for $531.19 (plus those darn taxes) a person for seven nights all inclusive on June 10th. If you have two kids, your entire family can go for $1062.38 (plus $700.12 taxes). If you really want to get technical, the total cost of your stay, your flight and food per person per day would only be $62.95 a day!

Let me know where you are going!

Air Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Canadian Travel

Air Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Canadian Travel

Air Canada has a coupon code for 15% off air travel within Canada.

Click here to book your fall flight @ Air Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 15SPRING
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 21st April 2014

I’m going to say fall flight because the coupon is valid on flights flown from the 8th of September through the 15th of December, 2014. If you have summer flight plans, this coupon is not going to help out. Sorry. The coupon is valid on tango and flex fares. Codeshare flights are unfortunately not eligible. Thanksgiving weekend is blacked out: so this coupon will not work on flights between the 10th and 13th of October 2014.

I will be done school at the end of June, but my graduation ceremony isn’t until November! I have no desire to drive through the Rocky Mountains in the middle of winter so I will probably fly from Vancouver Island, transfer in Vancouver (or Calgary), and onward to Edmonton for my graduation ceremony. This coupon will certainly help keep my flight costs down while I hop provinces. My husband will certainly be coming with me so 15% off two flights will be very helpful.

Where are you flying off to this fall?

Westjet Canada & Air Canada Promo Codes: 15% Off Flights Within Canada

Westjet Canada & Air Canada Promo Codes: 15% Off Flights Within Canada

Both Air Canada and West Jet have promo codes on for 15% off flights within Canada right now. You just have to book by today! However, the good thing is that you have your choice of flights, with both carriers having basically the same sale on.

Click here to book your flights @ Westjet.com now

  • Promo Code: WJC71
  • Coupon Code: T9LLKA2
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 15th August 2013

Click here to book your flights @ Aircanada.com now

  • Coupon Code: AMAZINGCANADA
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 15th August 2013

Both are offering these codes for travel until February 12th with December 17th until January 5th being blacked out. Personally, I’ve flown both carriers, and am partial to West Jet. I like the service, the seating and just their general vibe. I also usually find them to be cheaper.

When I searched for a flight from Toronto to Vancouver, the prices were almost identical on both carriers. Even the times are spot on. Talk about competitive pricing! In September, this flight will cost about $253.

Basically, you’ll just have to choose the carrier who you are loyal to and go with it. If you are planning on travelling within Canada this fall and winter, this is the time to book the flight you’ve been waiting to book.

Check the Bargainmoose forum for all your travel coupon codes, like these ones for West Jet and Air Canada.
