Cheap Flights to Vancouver
When is the best time to fly to Vancouver?
Tourists begin to arrive starting in spring time, with the peak season in full swing around July and August before slowing down at the end of autumn. Flights to Vancouver are not cheap during the peak season so be sure to secure your flight tickets in advance for the best savings. Vancouver does benefit from having warm summers and mild winters so you’re never trapped indoors for long. The summer is full of film and jazz festivals as well as some of the world’s greatest music festivals so book your flights to Vancouver as early as you can to avoid paying excessive amounts for your flight tickets.
September and October and May and June make up the ‘shoulder season’ so look for cheap flights to Vancouver around then. You’ll still have warm weather but the bustling crowds of tourists will be non-existent. Winter is a great time to visit if you like skiing, other than that Vancouver is very quiet and cold. You can find the cheapest flights to Vancouver over winter though, so depending on the kind of holiday you want it could be a great option.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?
The Canada Line is a very reliable and frequent way to get from the airport into the city, only taking around 25 minutes. Another option is to check with your hotel if they provide a courtesy shuttle bus, as most tend to. You can call your hotel to arrange a shuttle pick up from levels 2 at the airport; however it’s best to check before you travel that they do provide the service. Taxis are very expensive in Canada, and getting to the city is no different. That said, if there are a few of you to split the fare then it can work out okay, just be sure to agree on a fee beforehand and ask for a receipt.
