I just saw this incredible flight deal posted over at my friend Chris Myden’s website YYC Deals.
Also, don’t forget to check out my Vegas blog “JustVegasDeals.com” for all the best and hottest deals in Las Vegas.
Soon after WestJet released a promo code for ‘30% off’ flights from Calgary to Las Vegas, Air Canada went ahead and matched it (which is always the case, because our nation’s two airlines love to mirror each other).
It may have caught Air Canada a bit by surprise, and perhaps they didn’t have time to change their prices, which were already fairly low on the Calgary – Las Vegas route.
The end result is that after applying Air Canada’s promo code, the cheapest flights are showing up as $259 roundtrip including all taxes. This is as cheap as I’ve seen it in a while.
Of course, as always, the cheapest flights are the lower demand days of the week for travel to Vegas. But even Thursday-Sunday flights on certain date combinations are coming up at $304 roundtrip including taxes, which is definitely a great price for a non-stop flight to Vegas on higher demand days of the week. It’s fairly common for one to pay $450-$500 for these flights.
Here’s how to find and book these fares:
1. I would start with a search on Google Flights Explorer, with the ‘nonstop’ filter selected, like this…
Look for a date combination that works for you. The cheapest flights are showing up as $295 USD on Google Flights Explorer.
You’ll need to focus on dates between July 03 and September 30, as that is the date range valid for the Air Canada & WestJet promo codes.
2. Now go to www.aircanada.com and enter in the same dates you found with Google Flights Explorer.
In the ‘Promotion Code’ box, enter the code 30LAS
You can of course, also check out WestJet’s prices and apply their code at www.WestJet.com. After applying their promo code (see below), roundtrip flights appear to be coming up between $289 (lower demand days of the week) and $330 (higher demand days of the week).
As with all airline promo codes, you’re not really getting 30% off the total price. You’re getting 30% off the base fare, before taxes & fees. Promo codes are really only interesting when the fare is already pretty low compared to their usual average, which is the case here.
Both the WestJet and Air Canada codes are short lived, and expiring today at 2:00 PM Calgary time. As with most airlines, if you cancel within 24 hours, there is no fee (something that makes it handy to jump on a deal yet still gives you time to decide).
Air Canada’s ‘30% off’ Las Vegas Promo Code:
Promo code: 30LAS
Book by: June 20, 2014 (2:00 p.m. MT)
Travel from: July 3 to September 30, 2014
These flights won’t last long so I suggest you take advantage of the seat sale before it’s too late.
