It’s true, Canada’s sheer expansiveness means it’s often cheaper to fly out of the country than within it. But if you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to shake things later on in 2021 or next year, homegrown holidays can be a solid option – no passport required.

We’ll show you how to love where you live with affordable domestic flights that go for about $300 or less.

Dreaming of a late 2021 Getaway? Try These Top Affordable Flight Routes

Toronto – Calgary

Whether you’re planning a fun city break or an outdoors adventure in nearby Banff, Calgary always makes for a great trip.

With the addition of YYC’s rapid testing pilot project, flights to Calgary have been looking very affordable lately, even from Pearson airport! You’re looking at around $250 or less for several dates through early winter.

Calgary – Vancouver

Let’s see… 10 hour drive or 90 minute flight? When you just want to escape the cold for the weekend, flying over the Rockies is a no-brainer. Spend a couple of days shopping and dining in Vancouver, and enjoying the milder temperatures.

Airfare between YVR and YYC can be on the volatile side, but that makes it easier to spot a cheaper-than-average departure date. A $200 ticket budget is totally doable.
