'How To Get The Best Deal' Guides

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

Calgary to Oranjestad, Aruba - $382 CAD roundtrip including taxes


WestJet is showing flights from Calgary to Oranjestad, Aruba for $382 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop each way in Toronto.

There are a few reasons I like this deal, beyond the fact that it's around 50% cheaper than the typical best price for a flight from Calgary to Aruba.

- The flights are as fast as Calgary - Aruba can be done, with fairly ideal layover times in Toronto . Getting to Aruba has never been easy from Western Canada. Toronto is the only Canadian city with nonstop flights to AUA. Flights through the U.S. often have ridiculous 10-18 hour layovers.

- Aruba is far south in the Caribbean, on the very fringes of the hurricane belt. Only six hurricanes have passed within 100km miles of Aruba over the past 140 years. Statistically speaking *most* places in the Caribbean are safe from hurricanes by mid to late November. Aruba even more so.

- Unlike most places in the Caribbean which can have very expensive accommodations you can actually find well reviewed places to stay in Aruba for $100-$150 CAD / night (sort by price).

- This is the first time there's been a great deal from Calgary to Aruba.

UPDATE - A few new December dates have become available.
