A popular deal that includes direct, round-trip flights from Vancouver to a tropical paradise has become available again.
Fiji Airways commenced its direct flights from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Nadi International Airport (NAN) in November 2022, offering locals an affordable and convenient option to the bucket-list destination in the South Pacific.
Nadi is a town on Fiji's largest island, Viti Levu. The capital and largest city, Suva, is also located on the big island. But with 333 remote tropical islands, visitors will discover plenty of crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, plenty of sunshine, and an array of activities.
While tickets to the popular destination from Vancouver typically cost between $2,150 and $2,650, the country's flagship carrier is offering them for less than half that price, with numerous tickets for under $900 including all taxes and fees, according to Google Flights.
You can use the Google Flights price calendar to find low-cost options to Nadi from Vancouver but you'll want to be wary of the third party you book your ticket from when you browse the cheapest options. After you find an option that works for your travel dates, you should hop on to Skyscanner and Kayak to check the same dates to see if a cheaper option or one through a more trustworthy third-party supplier is available.
For example, a flight that departs Vancouver on Nov. 27 and returns on Dec. 6 from Fiji costs a total of $873.95 including all taxes and fees. While this ticket was located on Skyscanner, one of the lowest-price booking options was through FlightHub, which is a reputable company.
The price of this ticket is $1,446 cheaper than usual, according to Google Flights.
Opt for bigger companies like the aforementioned one or Expedia, Flight Centre, or other ones with brick-and-mortar stores. Avoid unfamiliar companies, particularly those with poor reviews.
What travellers from Vancouver can experience in Fiji
Since it's an island destination, many of Fiji's most popular activities include swimming, snorkeling, surfing, sailing, scuba diving, stand-up paddle boarding, river rafting, and ocean kayaking. In fact, the county is also known as the the "Soft Coral Capital of the World," which makes underwater exploration a diver's dream.
But visitors will also find a wealth of fascinating places to explore on land. For one, Fiji has a rich history that dates back thousands of years, with "archaeological digs uncovering pottery shards dating back over 2,600 years," according to the Culture Trip.
