    Hi Toronto people,
    I need your advice on flights out of T.O.. I have a friend on a tight budget who wants to come visit. He'll stay with us, but needs a cheap flight. Where do you book the cheapies? Is it actually cheaper to book a package? My parents always fly out of Detroit (they are in Windsor), is it worth the savings to drive down there? I think their upcoming trip cost them about $200 total for both of them (buy one get one free yada yada yada), and prices out of T.O. seem a lot higher than that.

    Looking forward to your expert advice! Thanks in advance...

    i agree with dennis, buffalo might be the best option. they can be cheaper.

    generally places like itravel2000.com and travelocity.ca are cheapest for flights only. it is better sometimes to book an entire package, but, you can find cheap flights.

    tell yuor friend to watch the air canada websavers in the paper or to sign up for their email (its weekly) sometimes they have great seat sales. and ive actually booked directly wiht them

    even try booking directly with places like airtransat or other charters. you never know. sometimes they could have seat sales too

    I usually only book AIR ONLY when I go to Cancun and always seem to end up using http://www.selloffvacations.com I usually play russian roulette and book at the last possible second. I have never paid more than $360.00 CDN total....but then it depends on when you go too.
    Buffalo has never had better prices to Cancun whenever I have checked. Way better prices sometimes to Florida and to Hawaii tho...
    Here is a sample from Selloffvacations

    Yeah flying out of Buffalo is for sure an option. But you gotta weigh in with the extra gas charges and possible hotel stay...


    But yeah Air Caanad and their Websavers, always good for to check the newspapers as well The Toronto Sun usually has a good travel section I think on Wednesdays...Good to check hte smaller places for flight sell offs
