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

Kids can fly to Vancouver for Thanksgiving for $181 roundtrip after taxes

It's not often you see great prices to Vancouver anymore. The Air Canada / Westjet duopoly tends to bottom out at around $300ish roundtrip after taxes even on non-peak travel dates.

But charter airline Enerjet is offering a special flight from Calgary to Vancouver over Thanksgiving weekend (Oct 5 to Oct 8).

Promo details for what they're calling 'Gobbler Flights' can be found at http://www.JumpOnEnerjet.ca/

The *sale* price (not the regular price) for adults works out to $308 roundtrip after taxes, which is about 30% cheaper than the current fare on those dates offered by Westjet ($429), and 35% cheaper than Air Canada (currently $468).

And they've recently added a new promo, where children between the ages of 2-17 can fly for $181 roundtrip after taxes, which is a pretty great price (anyone 2 and up usually pays whatever an adult pays on flights within Canada). Children must be accompanied by an adult paying *regular* fare ($385 roundtrip).

I'm assuming that each child must have a paying adult to qualify for the discount. It's not 100% clear on their promo page whether one adult can bring two children and have each of them receive the discounted price. But I'm guessing for each child discount, there must be an adult paying regular price.

The promo on their page claims that the child price is $104 roundtrip after taxes, but there's a bit of marketing spin going on there. Since the child must be accompanied by an adult paying regular fare ($385) it's a bit disingenuous to claim that the price is $104 roundtrip for the child, when an adult flying by themselves could fly for the sale price of $308. So in reality, you need to take the difference between the regular adult fare and the sale adult fare ($77) and add it to the cost of the child discount fare, which works out to $181.

At the end of the day, if you're looking to go to Vancouver for Thanksgiving, and have an even number of adults & children in your family, it's a great price. And even for adults traveling without children, it's a nice discount over the other two airlines than can get you there.
