The Canada Day long weekend is almost within reach and while some of us may soon be spending lazy days on the dock, it pays to set aside time now, in order to save for a getaway later this year. A quick look at this week’s Top 20 reveals deals both home and abroad -- several include travel over holiday weeks including Civic Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving -- offering discounts of as much as 60%.
Also in the market is a fare sale from 4-star Porter Airlines in which fares have dropped to new lows to cities across eastern Canada and the United States. This sale covers flights into December, including some holiday availability, allowing travellers to pair these discounted flights with discounted room nights. This sale ends Friday.
To best take advantage of this air sale for holiday travel, be flexible with your dates. For Civic Day and Labour Day, many passengers will depart Thursday or Friday and fly back Monday. Consider extending your trip a few days either before or after the holiday itself for the lowest fares. Same goes for Thanksgiving: adding a day or two at either end of your trip can bring significant savings.
This week we featured several hotels accessible after taking a Porter flight and there’s also an exhaustive list of hotels and resorts located near or outside of these cities:
