Locals looking to visit England may do so without taking a pre-departure coronavirus test now — but tickets to this iconic destination aren't always affordable.
Tickets to London often cost upwards of $1,200 CAD return, depending on the flexibility of your travel dates. While there are some tickets for summer travel available for around $900 CAD, they are few and far between.
For travellers who are willing to wait until the early fall, Icelandair is offering several cheap flights from Vancouver to "The Big Smoke" for under $700 CAD including all taxes, with a few options under $650 CAD return.
For example, a round-trip ticket that departs Vancouver on Monday, Oct. 3 and returns on Tuesday, Oct. 25 costs $648.36 CAD including all taxes and fees; it only includes one short layover in the airline's hub city, Reykjavik, Iceland, too.
