While it often costs less to fly to Paris from Vancouver than to Ontario, Swoop is offering a number of extremely low fares as part of its latest sale.
Swoop's Pack-and Go Sale runs until Nov. 15, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. or until sold out, and deals start for as little as $59 CAD. Travel is valid between Jan. 8 and March 11, 2020, and destinations include Las Vegas, Mexico, Hamilton and London, Ontario. What's more, return flights cost just over $100 CAD.
For example, the flight below, which departs on Jan. 20, 2020 costs $59 CAD one-way. A return flight that departs on Jan. 20 and returns on Feb. 3. costs a total of $114.39 CAD including all tax 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.
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.
