This year, set your sights on our neighbor to the north
This year may just be the year of Canada. At least when it comes to travel.
Earlier this week, the vacation booking website Kayak released its 2019 Travel Hacker Guide. In it, the site breaks down the best times to fly, trending destinations, and all the deals would-be travelers can get throughout the year. And Canada seems to be the real star of the show.
Navigating over to Kayak’s “When to Fly” section, users will find that the northern country appears a whopping eight times as a destination to visit throughout the year. Here’s a bit more breakdown on when and where you should be planning your next Canadian getaway.
According to Kayak, flights to Kelowna, Canada will be dirt cheap in June. That is when travelers will see a 16 percent price drop from tickets in 2018 and can even score a seat for as low as $272. And truly, this is an ideal time to visit the stunning region and experience its plentiful wine vineyards.
What’s better than fall leaf peeping in Ontario? Answer: Nothing. According to Kayak, September is prime time to visit Ontario as flights will run as low as $252, which marks a 21 percent price drop from last year. Even though September feels far away now is still a great time to plan your fall escape.
This October, Kayak wants you to think about heading to Winnipeg, the capital of the province of Manitoba. The city has plenty to offer just about everyone and may be the ideal place for a short family getaway. There, families can enjoy the park zoo, take part in one of its many festivals, watch a professional hockey game, or head out to experience the great outdoors.
For a truly cosmopolitan experience, plan a trip to the city of Vancouver this November when flights are hovering around $253, according to Kayak. In the city, visitors will be delighted by its world-class culinary scene, stunning art scene, and epic outdoor experiences. Check out these eight points of interest to start planning now.
