KLM is having another voting contest on flights from Calgary

Edinburgh, Scotland

Similar to the crazy deal to Turkey last year, KLM Canada is having another voting contest on 5 destinations from Calgary. The destination that gets the most votes will be put on sale for $850 roundtrip after taxes for travel from October 2013 to May 2014.

Based purely on the typical bottom price, I'd say they would all be a good deal on destinations that rarely come up for sale from Calgary. At $850, I'd rank them in order of discount off the typical bottom price as...

Moscow, Russia (-37%)
Lisbon, Portugal (-37%)
Copenhagen, Denmark (-35%)
Warsaw, Poland (-32%)
Edinburgh, Scotland (-28%)

So I'd say they're all fairly equal in terms of deal strength. Personally, I'll probably vote for Edinburgh or Lisbon, but not as excited about any of the available destinations as I was about $750 roundtrip to Turkey.

The date availability (mid October to early May) kind of hurts these mostly northern European destinations in terms of a good time of year to visit in my opinion, which is one reason I'd tend towards Lisbon, being a coastal city that's further south.

As always, you can also get a free stopover in Amsterdam for however long you want on KLM.

Last time KLM had a contest like this, other airlines matched the price when the winning destination was announced, so watch for that as well..

    Moscow would be awesome if it included dates around the Olympics.

    I'd vote for Moscow if I can go for the Olympics!

    Seriously there is no reason Moscow shouldn't win. It's the obvious choice.

    The timeline for the sale does span over the Olympics. So go vote for Russia!!

    The Olympics aren't actually in Moscow though. You'd have to then travel to Sochi, which is feasible but who knows how expensive that additional flight would be.
