When is the best time to fly to Toronto?

Peak Season:

The best time to organise your flights to Toronto is from June to October. Cheap flights to Toronto might be hard to come by as during this time there are lots of events and festivals taking place. In late July or early August there is the Caribana. It's North America's largest Caribbean festival with over a million tourists turning up to witness and join in with the fun. Book your flights to Toronto well in advance if you want to visit then. The weather is rather muggy and humid during these months too so prepare for huge crowds and sticky weather. If you can get cheap flights to Toronto in the autumn time, so between September and November, you'll get to enjoy the sun but with more reasonable temperatures. The Toronto International Film Festival takes place in September, which is the most successful public film festival in the entire world, so if you're a film fan book your flights to Toronto in advance and make a saving on your flight tickets.

Off season:

The winter time is cold, but cheap flights to Toronto are easier to come by. The city still hosts several holiday festivities and the winter weather can be more enjoyable than the muggy weather of the summer. Book your flight tickets early on to ensure you save money on your flights to Toronto.

When is the best time to book a flight to Toronto?

You'll find the cheapest flights to Toronto in May and June, with the price of your flight tickets gradually increasing as the year progresses. Due to the large amount of festivals and events that take place between June and October, make sure to book your flights as early as possible to save some money on your flight tickets. If you can, try to sit on the right hand side of the plane, weather permitting, this will offer you the best views as you approach Toronto.

Which airlines operate flights to Toronto?

Air Canada, Iberia and British Airways are just 3 airlines that operate flights to Toronto. Don't expect much variation in the price between the 3 though as although a fairly competitive route, there isn't much change in the monthly costs. British Airways do offer complimentary beverages and food (including alcoholic drinks) so you could claw a few pound back there.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

There are two realistic options for getting from the airport to downtown Toronto. Three if you include a taxi but they will probably take all of your vacation money on the one journey, which after the price of your flights to Toronto will not make you all that jolly. Option one is a coach service, it's still not that cheap (at approximately $26 one way) but it's a much better alternative than a taxi. Depending on traffic you'll probably find the journey taking about 30 minutes to an hour and has several stops in downtown for you to choose from. If you're really on a budget, or just want to experience some true local transport, there is the 'Rocket' option. You can jump on this to the Kipling Subway Station and then ride the subway to pretty much anywhere you want to go. It's a bargain compared to a taxi ride and immerses you into the local lifestyle.
