For instance, a stopover in London can increase travel time up to 24h with WestJet, while a stopover at London Gatwick with British Airways will increase travel time to 18h 49m but can save roughly £100 or so on ticket prices. Some of the most common stopover points along this route include France, Amsterdam, London, and Belfast. Note that some stopovers do require changing planes.

What is the best way to get around Nova Scotia?

What are some things to do in Nova Scotia?

While much of Nova Scotia is rural, you will still find plenty to see and do during a stay. If you’ll be in Halifax, then make time to visit the waterfront boardwalk. The Halifax Public Gardens are also worth a visit. The Canadian Museum of Immigration and Halifax Citadel National Historic Site are also well worth your time. For natural beauty, hit the Cabot Trail, or visit Annapolis Valley.

Do I need a passport to fly to Nova Scotia from the UK?

You will need a passport to enter Nova Scotia from the UK. It must be valid for at least three months after your date of entry, as well. However, you will not require a visa to enter.
