If you're looking to spend some time in Europe during the off-season, this new deal offers a round-trip ticket for a fraction of the regular price.
Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands, is situated between and above Germany and Belgium and makes an ideal place to explore much of western Europe.
While the country's main international airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), still has some substantial flight delays and cancellations, there have been fewer at the Dutch Hub since the summer.
You can find several return options on FlightHub from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) for under $500 CAD including all taxes and fees right now. The prices are lower than they were the last time prices dropped in September. At that time, the best deals cost just under $570 CAD.
For instance, one flight that is available on FlightHub costs a total of $493.26 CAD including all taxes and fees. The flight departs Vancouver on Feb. 20 and stops in Calgary for just shy of three hours before arriving in Amsterdam. On the return trip, a flight departs out of Amsterdam on March 2 and makes one stop in Calgary for just shy of two hours before making its final stop in Vancouver.
