'How To Get The Best Deal' Guides

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

Calgary to London, UK or Dublin, Ireland - $251 to $385 CAD roundtrip including taxes on British Airways | various other cities in Europe in the $500s/$600s

London, UK

There's a booking site showing what seems to be error prices on flights from Calgary to London, UK for $271 to $385 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The only booking site showing these is ClickMyTrip, regarded as a very low quality booking site, so I don't have much faith that they can actually get these ticketed for the price they are showing.

If you do try to book these, take screenshots along the way.

I would expect a call from ClickMyTrip claiming they couldn't book them. But there have certainly been cases of low quality booking sites being the only one showing a mistake price, and having it actually work out.

The flights all seem to be non-stop in one direction, and have 1 stop in the other direction.

IMPORTANT: Do not call ClickMyTrip. If there's any chance of these actually being ticketed, calling will prevent that.

UPDATE: To book these flights, use CheapOAir. Other websites are no longer showing them.

How to find and book this deal

1. Go to the CheapOAir website

IMPORTANT: This is the CheapOAir.com website, which is in $USD. The $CAD version of the CheapOAir website (.ca) is no longer showing these.

2. Search for a flight from Calgary to Dublin, Ireland (DUB) or London, UK (LHR) or try one of the other European cities listed below.

3. Try Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday dates in the months listed above.

You can also try the tip at the bottom of this blog post about using Google Flights to look for cheap date combinations with British Airways, and then try those dates on CheapOAir .

Update @ 10:29 AM MST - I'm still seeing them on Momondo, but I think we broke ClickMyTrip

This is the error message that shows up when you click through now...

On some attempts, it just takes you to the ClickMyTrip homepage.

Update @ 10:35 AM MST - CheapOAir is now also showing these, and the best booking site to try booking these mistake fares with now. Important: Do not call them.

I'm also seeing mistake prices on CheapOAir from Calgary to Dublin, Ireland for $355 CAD roundtrip

-- Dublin, Ireland (DUB) --

Paris, France (CDG) for $555 CAD roundtrip

Madrid, Spain (MAD) -- $574

Budapest, Hungary (BUD) -- $655

Prague, Czech Republic (PRG) -- $659

Sofia, Bulgaria (SOF) -- $660

Here's a tip to help find working dates for all these flights

1. Go to Google Flights: (British Airways only)

2. Change the destination to one of the ones listed in this blog post.

3. Click on the departure date box to open the calendar view and browse for the cheapest dates you can find. Some of them may be over $1000.

4. Try those dates on CheapOAir

I am also starting to see reports of confirmations from people that they have actually been issued tickets and can check them on the British Airways website.

NOTE: For anyone finding that the CheapOAir (dot ca) website is extremely slow right now, try accessing it from a mobile device. The mobile site seems to still be fairly fast.

UPDATE: I haven't seen any on Cheapoair.ca for a while, but these may still be available on the Cheapoair (dot COM) website.

The CheapOAir.com website is in $USD.

I just saw Calgary - Dublin for $301 USD, which works out to $388 CAD.

^^ This was November 15 to 22. But keep trying different dates, it's not over yet!

Multiply what you see on the .com website by 1.29

On CheapoAir.com (the $USD site) - you can also try using promo code AIR50 to bring down the price a little more

It's a little hard to find the spot where you enter the promo code.

It's on the payment page, under 'Price Details' (USD).

Click on 'Promo Code'

Enter: AIR50

    I was able to book YYC-LHR on cheapoair.ca for C$326.98, about 15 min ago (12:05 MST). Travel dates: Oct 11-29.
    At first cheapoair site was a bit slow and sort of froze. I had to refresh a few times. There were some different prices too, ranging from C$321-360 and at one point jumped to C$788 (for the same dates). It seems their site was trying to recalibrate?
    I got a confirmation email from cheapoair but waiting to see it they will honour this potentially mistake price.
    Good luck! It might still be there.

    I booked through cheapoair and received an airline reservation code for British Airways but still haven't received an email about e-tickets.. I get an error when I try to look up my booking on the BA website. This was about three hours ago. Is this a bad sign, or does it usually take a while to send the e-tickets?

    Has Anonymous been here?
       Anonymous on August 10th, 2017

    I got the reservation code and e ticket all on the same email from cheapoar dot ca. Booked this morning around 11 a.m. and am able to verify the flight details on british air website.

    I just booked (9:00 PM MT) through cheapoair.com and got $298 USD (~$380 CAD) for Feb 6-14. I was also looking at October 3-11 (that ended up not working with my schedule) that were still showing up around $250 USD, but no longer had direct flights -- everything had a layover in DFW. Earlier in the day, I was seeing layovers in Toronto, but not by this evening. Details verified on British Airways site.

    Could not find the $384 fare for my flight to LHR Mar 29 - Apr 14 but was able to book for $660 which is still better than the normal $900 fare. Conformation email came through yesterday and can see it on BA website using PNR.
