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

Ottawa to Europe | Nov 2014 to Apr 2015 from $662 roundtrip including taxes

Edinburgh, Scotland

Air France

and KLM are currently showing some very unusual airfare price drops from Ottawa to Europe. By my estimate, they've dropped certain routes around 25-30% below their typical average cost.

Here's how to find and book these flights...

1. Start with a search using Google Flights Explore, from Ottawa to Europe:


Look for destinations and date combinations from Ottawa to Europe that are in the $600s (roundtrip, including taxes). Prices on Google Flights Explore are in $USD.

2. Take your destination and dates that you found, and try searching on either of the following airline sites to make your booking:

Air France - Air France Canada

KLM - KLM Canada

You could also try a 3 day flexible date search using Kayak

Prices on the sites above will be in $CAD.

The price drops appear to be concentrated between the date range of November 2014 and April 2015.

Here are some examples of the cheapest destinations I've seen from Ottawa, and have verified that the price is actually bookable...
(prices are roundtrip, including taxes)

Luxembourg (LUX) - $644 - just added
Basel, Switzerland (BSL) - $662
Geneva, Switzerland (GVA) - $665
Brussels, Belgium (BRU) - $681
Frankfurt, Germany (FRA) - $715
London, England (LON) - $727
Glasgow, Scotland (GLA) - $733
Dublin, Ireland (DUB) - $734
Edinburgh, Scotland (EDI) - $737
Birmingham, England (BHX) - $737
Munich, Germany (MUC) - $738
Newcastle, England (NCL) - $740

Update: If you try searching from the Ottawa Train Station (XDS) instead of from Ottawa Airport (YOW) - the price will drop by $50-$60 in some cases.

There could definitely be other cities available in the $600s and $700s, so it's worth trying various cities in Europe, as the KLM and Air France network covers much of Europe.

Also keep in mind that with Air France you can usually get a free extended stopover in Paris, France. The same goes for Amsterdam with KLM.

Multi City Trips

You may also be able to find some great multi-city trips, involving Paris or Amsterdam, and the destinations listed above.

For these price drops, I've found that Orbitz is a good place for verifying and booking these Multi-City flights. Just change the flight type from Round Trip to Multi-City when you start your search.

Try looking for flights from Ottawa to 'X Destination' (from the list above), to Paris (CDG), to Ottawa. The price could very well come back in the $600-$700 range.

Or try Ottawa to Paris (CDG) to 'X Destination' to Ottawa. The price could be low for that as well.

Or try the same thing, but using Amsterdam (AMS) instead of Paris.

How long?

These are not an advertised price drops, so it's impossible to say how long they will last.
