As frigid weather prompted Environment Canada to issue multiple weather warnings for B.C. on Jan. 13, you might be dreaming of escaping somewhere hot and sunny. However, last-minute bookings can cost a pretty penny.
With this in mind, reserving space in advance can save you hundreds of dollars on airfare, accommodation and more. And, if you're looking to travel to a highly sought-after destination, you'll want to make sure that you plan ahead.
For example, Vancouverites looking to fly to Disney World this winter will find that most tickets start around $550 to $600 CAD return. Instead, the flight below, which departs Vancouver on Monday, Oct. 19 and returns on Wednesday, Oct. 28, costs a total of $372.36 CAD - and that's including all taxes and fees. The ticket includes one stop in either direction, but the outbound layover is only an hour and 15 minutes long.
Other dates that offer reduced fare combinations include: Oct.19, Oct. 23 Oct. 24, Oct. 27, Nov. 3, Nov. 4, Nov. 5. Nov. 10, Nov. 12, Nov. 16, Nov. 17, and Nov. 18.
Disney World and Orlando
While the theme park is the main attraction, Orlando is home to a litany of other fun attractions, entertainment, dining, shopping, and more. Further, the weather is quite toasty throughout the year, which makes it the ideal escape from raincouver.
Tip: If you’re looking to visit the park, ensure that you reserve a hotel on the park grounds. Otherwise, you’ll have an extremely difficult time seeing everything – it is enormous. Also, make sure that you book it ahead of time as the happiest place on earth is extremely busy the whole year round.
