KLM | Which romantic city should we put on sale from Calgary ?

Back in 2012, you might recall that KLM Canada asked Canadians to vote on which city they should put on sale. The winner ended up being Istanbul, Turkey and KLM offered the fare for $700 roundtrip after taxes, for a period of 48 hours, and it was one of the best deals of the year available from Calgary.

This year, they’re offering a similar promotion, and once again putting 5 cities up for a vote.

Barcelona, Spain

Budapest, Hungary

Prague, Czech Republic

Venice, Italy

Vienna, Austria

KLM is billing the cities as ‘romantic Valentine’s destinations’ and claiming they will offer the sale on February 13. The winning city will be available for a fare price of $850 roundtrip after taxes from Calgary.

Is it a good deal?

From Calgary, deals to any of these European cities (especially the ones to Eastern Europe) are quite rare, and prices are typically in the range of $1100 – $1500 roundtrip after taxes, so a price of $850 would be a fairly significant discount.

It remains to be seen what date range KLM will offer this sale price for. My guess is that they will be available on dates up to the end of May at the very furthest. I’d definitely be surprised to see them offer the sale over the peak summer month period, when fares are always even higher.

Don’t forget that with KLM you always have the opportunity to get a free stopover in Amsterdam as well, regardless of which city you're flying to. You can get the stopover for as many days as you want.

To vote on which city you want to put on sale, you need to be logged into Facebook, and head to: http://www.facebook.com/KLMCanada

Unlike last time, I won't try to sway the vote with my opinion about which city should win. They're all pretty great cities in their own ways. Feel free to comment in the comments section about which city you think should win, and why.

Update: It looks like KLM is now going to be putting the top 2 vote getters on sale.

Can't find this deal anymore? Prices change as deals sell out. The key is to be among the first to know when an amazing deal is posted.

    I've been to budapest, prague and vienna and from those cities, I think you should try to get a trip deal to either prague or budapest. Both are amazing cities and have lots to offer.
