'How To Get The Best Deal' Guides

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

KLM asking people to vote on which city they should put on sale


So, KLM has narrowed it down to two finalists, Amsterdam and Istanbul. They've introduced a 'second round', where the voting essentially starts over.

Please vote Istanbul, a chance for a price like this may never be seen again. If Istanbul gets the most Likes and Comments, they will be putting it on sale for $749.

All you need to go is go to KLM Canada's Facebook page and hit Like under the picture of Istanbul and make a Comment.

*Important* - Make sure you're hitting Like and leaving a comment for the correct destination! Istanbul is the second picture, you may need to scroll down to see it.

Their Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/KLMCanada



KLM is doing something pretty interesting (for an airline), and asking Canadians to vote on which city they would like to see go on sale for 48 hours.

Whichever city gets the most votes will be put on sale for $749 roundtrip after taxes from Calgary. To some of these cities this would be an excellent price, a price that Calgary has never seen.

The cities you can choose from are:

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Barcelona, Spain
Bucharest, Romania
Dublin, Ireland
Istanbul, Turkey

Now I don't want to influence the voting (Ok, maybe I do) but I *really* think you should vote for somewhere other than Amsterdam.

Western Canada sees the occasional great price to Amsterdam on Air Transat from time to time, and has even seen prices in the $500s (roundtrip after taxes).

Cities like Istanbul, Turkey on the other hand, will *never* see a great price like this, so it's a very rare opportunity to get there cheaply.

Ok, full disclosure, I've always wanted to go to Turkey, so if you can't make a decision about which city you'd like to vote for, or as a personal favor to me, please vote Istanbul. :)

To vote, go to http://www.facebook.com/KLMCanada - you will need to Like their Facebook page to vote.

    With luck, we will be seeing one soon Darrell !

    Best way to get to Turkey cheap is go through an Ukrainian, German, or Russian website. Packages for 10 day all inclusive including alcohol 4+ star hotel, would be 770 a person.
    Same can be said about Egypt. Once you get to Europe, book these deals.

    Paul H: That can't be including the flight price, that's the accommodations and drinks/meals only, correct? Flights alone rarely drop below $1100 roundtrip after taxes from Calgary to Turkey. Or maybe you meant including a flight from somewhere else in Europe.

    I think that's what you meant, but I wanted to clarify that because you said 'Best way to get to Turkey'.

    Amsterdam all the way. Istanbul is nice, but when you go to Amsterdam, the world is your oyster and you are on the doorstep of Europe. Love KLM.
