If you're growing tired of the dreary, wet Vancouver weather, a trip to the City of Sin might be a welcome respite from the gloomy atmosphere.
Right now, WestJet's discount carrier, Swoop, if offering extremely low prices on one-way and return trips to Las Vegas from Abbotsford. In addition, the carrier is offering a number of other destinations on the cheap, too.
The sale will run until Oct. 11 (11:59 p.m. MT) or until sold out. So, while there's still over a week to finalize your travel plans, the lower fares may sell out early. As a result, it's recommended to book as soon as possible in order to reserve the lowest fare.
For example, the flight below departs Abbotsford at 4:55 p.m. on Thursday, Oct 17. and costs $67.15 CAD including all taxes and fees.
Of course, this flight only offers travel down to Las Vegas. However, a flight back to Abbotsford only costs around $76 CAD. As such, a total return trip with direct flights costs $143 CAD including all taxes and fees.
Since Swoop flies out of Abbotsford, Vancouverites have to make a trip into the Fraser Valley in order to catch their flights. As a result, many locals skip the low-cost option because they don’t want to spend the extra time or money getting to the airport.
For those who are looking to save, but don’t want to spend big bucks on a cab or leaving their car at the airport, there is an alternative: Reliable Bus. Find out more information about the cost-effective transit option here.
Discover Las Vegas
While it can be fun to explore the famous Las Vegas Strip after nightfall, there are still a number of fun things to do during the day. For example, there are a plethora of fun pool parties to attend, as well as places to shop, dine, and enjoy beverages.
In addition, Las Vegas offers some of the best entertainment in the world every night of the week. Whether you are looking to see a musical, a magic show, a band, or a DJ, Vegas has it all. The city also offers a number of fun things to try just outside of the strip that include everything from the Grand Canyon to Old Las Vegas to ghost towns.
Note: While the low-cost carrier is an extremely affordable alternative, it is worthwhile to note that there are a number of additional costs. For one, luggage will cost extra, as will selecting your own seat or even speaking to an operator. As such, it is worthwhile to factor in what you need to bring, or if you want to sit in a particular spot.
