"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YYZ." - Chris Myden



2015

Toronto to Paris, Amsterdam, Finland, & other Scandinavian countries | in the $500s roundtrip including taxes


Deal #1 - Toronto to Paris, France (CDG) and then Lille, France (XDB) back to Toronto - $533 to $550 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Lille is in the northern part of France, right near the border of Belgium.

Note that XDB is a train station. So on the way home, your airfare includes a train ticket from XDB back to Paris to catch the flight to Toronto.

HOW TO FIND / BOOK

To book, you can go to www.airfrance.ca and click on 'Multi-destination itinerary'.

Search for a flight from YYZ to CDG, and then XDB to YYZ.

Try Wed & Thu dates from October 2015 through to early January 2016.

example of what your search screen should look like on the Air France website:


One interesting date combo is December 30 to January 7. New Year's in Paris!

Some good info about how to get from Paris to Lille, courtesy of YYZ Deals Facebook Group member, Lindsay:

"To get from Paris to Lille you can take a Flibco bus or a Megabus. I think megabus actually stops at the airport a few times a day. Busses would take about three hours, so they are slower but also cheaper than the trains (Thalys and another option, I forget). In general it's 20-40 euros one way. Definitely buy ahead as the busses sell out and train tickets can get super pricy the day of. Alternatively, if you're up for an adventure, you can sign up for a cheap ride share with locals on blablacar."



Deal #2 - A multi-city deal from Toronto to Helsinki, Finland to Amsterdam, Netherlands and then back to Toronto - for $485 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Yes, with this multi-city deal you can spend time in each city.

You can also substitute Amsterdam for Paris, and it will work out to about $20 more.

HOW TO FIND / BOOK

Start with a Google Multi City flight search, like this....

Toronto to Helsinki to Amsterdam to Toronto

Toronto to Helsinki to Paris to Toronto

With the example links above, the dates are in November. You can try adjusting the dates to other dates between September 2015 and February 2016.

You may want to focus on Tuesday flights at first, to see if the cheap price is available.

Once you see something you like, you can either click through from Google Flights to the KLM website or Air France website for booking, or you can take the same dates and destinations you found and try searching on KLM.com or AirFrance.ca directly

KLM.com - click on 'several destinations' on the home page to start your search.

AirFrance.ca - click on 'Multi-destination itinerary' on the home page to start your search.

Deal #3 - A variety of cities in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe are available from Toronto on Finnair for $508 to $585 CAD, roundtrip including taxes

Helsinki, Finland (HEL) $508 (non-stop flight)
Tallinn, Estonia (TLL) $523
Riga, Latvia (RIX) $526
Vilnius, Lithuania (VNO) $542
Stockholm, Sweden (ARN) $552
Oslo, Norway (OSL) $552
Copehagen, Denmark CPH $585

HOW TO FIND / BOOK

Go to one of the following airline websites:

Finnair
American Airlines
British Airways

Search for Sunday, Tuesday, or Friday flights in September/October 2015 and May/June 2016.

example from Finnair.com:

Sun Sep 13 to Tue Sep 29

NOTE: Third party booking website FareDepot is claiming that some of these can be booked for even less. Such as Toronto to Tallinn, Estonia $442 CAD roundtrip including taxes. Or Toronto - Copenhagen for $524.

screenshot from FareDepot.com


Be forewarned that FareDepot is ranked #18 in the third party website power rankings.

You can also fly into one city, and out of another, for similar prices.

Start at the Finnair.com home page, and click on 'Multiple destination'.

example: Toronto to Helsinki, and then Stockholm to Toronto


...which currently comes up as $559 CAD including taxes for both flights.




Deal #4 - Toronto to Sofia, Bulgaria (SOF) - $599 CAD roundtrip including taxes

It looks like Toronto - Sofia, Bulgaria (SOF) can now be had for $599 CAD roundtrip including taxes on certain dates in October (second half), November, and December 2015 (first half).

The flights are with Air France / KLM & Bulgaria Air.

They are bookable through Expedia.ca

example: Oct 21 to Nov 4

    Would you have to start the return trip in Lille? Or could you just show up at CDG and check in there?

    According to the bottom of this page...

    http://www.airfrance.ca/CA/en/common/resainfovol/avion_train/reservation_avion_train_tgvair_airfrance.htm

    ...it does look like you need to complete the train leg to validate the air ticket.

    Airlines don't like it when you miss a leg of a journey, and apparently that goes for flights involving trains as well !

    Hi Chris,

    My wife and I just booked the Toronto - Pairs - Lille - Toronto flight. We thought that Paris may be a couple of years away but at this price we couldn't say no. Ended up booking through Flighthub at $535 each Oct 8 - 20.

    Thanks again for everything you do. You make travelling affordable.

    Thanks Sadaf. I've fixed the link, but it may take a little while before it works, due to caching. In the mean time, you can just go to www.airfrance.ca directly.

    AND thanks Chris... this is our FOURTH flight deal sourced via YYZDeals.com

    Nothing like a sale to narrow down your vacation choices... or even to strongarm you into taking a vacation period!

    Anyone try building a multi-city with this. Hoping to do 2 night Copenhagen, 2 nights Oslo and 2 nights Stockholm but would need to do flights or options between cities as well.

    Has Chris_Myden been here?
       Chris_Myden on August 5th, 2015

    Rach: Yes, you would need to find your own way from Paris to Lille.

    Someone posted some good info about this in the YYZ Deals Facebook Group:

    "To get from Paris to Lille you can take a Flibco bus or a Megabus. I think megabus actually stops at the airport a few times a day.

    For the Paris/Lille ticket has anyone checked with Air France on needing to complete the train for the cheaper fare?

    I am hoping to do the following:

    Fly in to Paris; spend 4 nights there. Take the train to Lille; spend one day and one night there and then take the train from Lille back to Paris and fly to Toronto.

    The return leg is fine, my concern is if I don't take the train on first leg and simply get off in Paris; will my return ticket become invalidated?

    Does anyone know if you have to have your checked bags with you for the train leg from Lille to Paris? I was going to book a one way train ticket to Lille just to do the check in...but I'd rather not drag my bags with me as I'm not checking out of my Paris hotel until the next day. Thanks!

    How did you guys get the following: Copehagen, Denmark CPH $585? I tried Finnair/BA/AA and can't get below ~900CAD for roundtrip YYZ-CPH. Thanks.

    Has Sarah been here?
       Sarah on August 10th, 2015

    Thinking of booking the one to Amsterdam but skipping Helsinki. The flight has a layover in Amsterdam then goes to Helsinki and then flight # 2 goes from there to Amsterdam. What would happen if I just got off at Amsterdam in the first place? Will I have trouble getting my luggage? or will there be an issues coming back to Toronto from the airline? Just looking for advice from someone who's done something similar before?

    Has Masoud been here?
