Whether it's a trip abroad or a visit to one of Canada's local travel destinations, travel can get pricy and we're here to help. On this page, you'll find the latest Canadian travel deals, ranging from a few bucks off to the kind of discounts you can write home about. Here's what you need to know...
CHEAP FLIGHTS AND OTHER TRAVEL DEALS
Here at BargainMoose, we've been in the business of saving Canadians money long enough to know that with enough persistence and patience, you can save money on almost anything available on the internet. And yes, that includes expensive flights abroad, hotels, vacation packages, cruises, car rentals and other travel-related purchases. From online coupons to seat sales, here are a few good places to start looking for savings:
Subscribe to deal alerts: This includes both BargainMoose deal alerts and any alerts or email lists offered by your favourite hotels, airlines and travel sites. Many travel deals come in the form of flash sales, last minute deals and limited time offers and - as we all know – the early bird gets the worm!
Look for bundle deals: Booking a bundle will not only save you time searching, but will almost certainly save you considerable amounts of money. Many travels sites will give you the option of booking travel packages that include a flight, a hotel, a car rental as well as other add-ons. Check travel sites like iTravel2000, Travelocity, Last Minute Travel and others.
Look for price matching and price drop protection: There's nothing quite as disappointing as booking a vacation only to have it go down in price the next day. Be sure to read up on your booking agent's price matching and price drop protection policies before you book. This can save you quite a bit of money if your hotel, flightor car rental happen to go on sale!
Consider alternatives: Being a pennywise traveler means learning to be flexible. This can mean anything from booking with an alternate airline, booking a flight with a layover, picking different travel dates, choosing a hotel in a smaller town/city or opting for a hostel or a B&B. Research your options and try to come up with alternatives for your biggest travel expenses.
SAVING ON TRAVEL WITH CANADIAN COUPON CODES
The only thing better than saving big bucks on your holiday is getting it for free.

Wondering how much you can expect to save? The savings generally range in value from a few bucks off car rentals or parking, to hundreds of dollars off all-inclusive vacations, flights and hotels. But remember - getting the best deals requires some pre-planning and a daily ritual that includes checking BargainMoose, comparing prices and getting a little creative...
Bon voyage, fellow bargain-hunter!
