Locals looking to visit England may do so without taking a pre-departure coronavirus test now — and WestJet is offering an ultra-low fare to the country's capital.
For Vancouverites looking to travel to Europe, England offers a plethora of some of the world’s most famous attractions, including Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the National Gallery, and much more. Tourists will find numerous eateries, galleries, and shopping, too.
London is also famous for its nightlife and known for having one of the most diverse and influential music scenes on the planet.
But while it is one of the most iconic destinations in the world, flights to London aren't always affordable from the Lower Mainland.
Right now, however, WestJet is offering several dates in May for under $550 CAD return. The cheapest date combination departs cost between $507 and $515 CAD including all taxes and fees. The only catch is the outbound journey involves two stopovers: a short stop in Kelowna and a longer one in Toronto.
The least expensive flights for similar trips to London usually cost between $670 to $1,350 CAD.
Low-cost with direct flights
If you're looking to avoid making stops, WestJet is also offering a couple of flights with direct flights in both directions for only about $20 more.
You can fly direct from Vancouver to London on Monday, May 9 and returning back on Tuesday, May 17 for only $527.66 CAD including all taxes and fees.
Effective March 18, England removed all remaining restrictions on international travel for all passengers
