WestJet 24 hr sale to Barbados (travel between Sep 1 to Oct)

Just wanted to share the news that there is a 24 hr sale with WestJet (expires around midnight tonite - Aug 23) from Toronto to Barbados (lowest return price around Cdn $362.50 per person with all taxes, etc. for select dates) travelling from 1st September until sometime around mid-end of October 2013. This is the cheapest return flight ticket we have seen for quite some time.

Go to www.westjet.ca for full details.

WOW - fantastic price any GTAer with spare vacation time should grab it! - excellent reason to zip back to BIM for a quick "recharge" - Air Can's sale couple of weeks ago - best price was $592!

Ropbenyi12,

Thank you. Great airfares.

I just think its a shame that offers like this are not posted on the BTA (Barbados Tourism Authority) website to ensure the news gets to the maximum potential. As you know September and October are traditionally quieter months on Barbados, but there are still excellent accommodation rates, the benefits of Free Spending Vouchers and the lowering of VAT (sales tax) to 7.5 per cent from 1st October.

Now if only there were prices like this in high season... can you imagine how many Canadians would be on Bajan beaches instead of shovelling snow??????

Our son got a ticket for a stay over Christmas - Air Canada seat sale - $592 - which we thought was great

West Jet sale is only for the fall. - But yes - you're so right - Air Canada makes travel to BIM soooo expensive - such a shame!

JUST received an email flyer via Baxter Travel where Air Canada is offering return fare from Toronto to Barbados from CAD$224 'inclusive' of taxes. Book by 30th August and travel between 1st and 30th September. The flyer is supported by the Barbados Tourism Authority.

Competition is a wonderful thing.

Here is the Air Canada link for the Barbados fare sale (book by 30 August for travel from September 1 to 30). The price of CAD$224 is actually one-way only and not return fare as per the above post. I did see some prices quoting CAD$199 during the month of September.

Prices are still good and, subject to the dates desired, may result in better prices for some dates as opposed to others (compared to WestJet).

Air Canada is very 'sneaky' about posting "one way" prices - since one cannot book a one way ticket unless it is domestic - can't do it for Barbados - so is very misleading - good thing you noticed robenyi12

My error with the one way, but just checked Air Canada website and still plenty of seats from second week of September at CAD$420.51 RETURN 'inclusive of taxes'.

Still a great fare and for those of us that who live in the Caribbean, its costs us a lot more.
