Are you dreaming of visiting the big apple, but don’t want to pay the big bucks to do so?
From the Empire State building to the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Centre to Central Park, the city offers an abundance of places to explore. With that in mind, a plane ticket to New York isn’t always cheap, and therefore many Vancouverites have yet to discover its magic.
Luckily, this hack allows you to fly to this world-class city for under $300 CAD return. The trick is to buy two separate one-way tickets, with two separate airlines, rather than booking them together as a return.
The first ticket is booked through American Airlines and departs Vancouver on Thursday, April 4 and costs $150.26 CAD including taxes and fees. The return ticket departs New York on Tuesday, April 9 and costs $108.97 USD including taxes and fees which works out to roughly $145.75 CAD after the exchange rate.
As such, the total cost of the round-trip ticket comes out to roughly $296.01 CAD including tax.
Discover New York
NYC offers a plethora of things to see and do, as well as places to range of places to stay. Of course, staying in Manhattan or right in Times Square typically costs a bit more, but it may be worthwhile to stay downtown. Also, a CityPASS for New York gets you discounted admission into most of the city’s big attraction. If you purchase one before you start visiting, it can reduce the overall cost of your trip.
