Cheap Fares to South America, Caribbean
There are some unusually low air fares being offered this summer and fall for flights from Montreal and Toronto to South America and certain islands in the Caribbean. The best deals in terms of distance flown are those to Santiago, Chile and are available in the fall.
For example, round trip flights including tax on various airlines start at $727 Canadian from Montreal in the September to December period. Flights to Peru from Montreal begin as low as $667 Canadian, and similar prices are being offered to these places from Toronto. Check details on www.yuldeals.com for Montreal departures, www.yyzdeals if you are leaving from Toronto. Normally fares are almost twice this high.
Watch these sites for bargains on last minute deals to the Caribbean too. Recent round trip flights including tax have been as low as $265 Canadian from Toronto to Curacao, or $277 Canadian from Montreal to Grand Exuma, Bahamas.
It's a pleasant change to be able to report some deals for Canadian flyers, since in general air fares within and from Canada are very high.
