Flights from Vancouver to Hawaii have dipped ahead of a bout of rainy (and possibly snowier) weather in the Lower Mainland.
Tickets for direct flights from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Kahului Airport (OGG) in Maui have dropped significantly, offering an ultra-low-cost option for sun-starved locals looking for a warm escape.
Generally, you can get the lowest prices on tickets booked within one to three months of your departure date. If you plan on booking a ticket outside of this window, set a Google Alert for your travel dates in Google Flights. This will alert you when the price of your flight has dropped on the dates you would like to travel.
The one-month rule applies to a jaw-dropping deal on a one-way, direct flight from YVR to OGG on Thursday, March 7, which costs $191.03 with Air Canada. However, there are only a couple of dates in March at this price point; there is a much wider availability of low-cost options in April.
