'How To Get The Best Deal' Guides

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

If you're thinking Disneyland this summer, consider SNA

What's SNA ? That's the airport code for John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, which is essentially Anaheim, which is the home of Disney.

Up until now, to get to Disneyland, your best bet was usually by flying into LAX (Los Angeles) about 43km from Mickey's house. SNA on the other hand, is about half that distance. Flying into LAX though, was usually cheaper, and more importantly, direct. You couldn't get to SNA without stopping over somewhere, which meant it wasn't worth the hassle, even if it was a closer drive.

Today though, Westjet announced they're offering direct flights into SNA from Calgary and Vancouver this spring/summer.

But that's not the interesting part. The interesting part is, right now Westjet is showing summer fares into SNA for $310 roundtrip after tax. That's about 40% cheaper than the cheapest fares into LAX, on *any* airline, including Westjet. The cheapest into LAX are around $500. In fact, there hasn't been much of anything this year to California under $400. So $310 in the summer is definitely an interesting price.

Even over July long weekend for example, here's June 28 to July 6 on Westjet.com ...

So they could be just looking to fill up some seats on this new route. Other airlines have been quick to drop their SNA fares out of Calgary to match this. United and Alaska Airlines are both at $323 right now. But they have layovers, so Westjet's non-stop flights at $310 are a no-brainer.

Look for the flights on Westjet.com that are $98.99 each way before tax, those are the cheap ones. They seem to be cheap up to about mid July.
