Combining Toronto and New york

we are trying to combine a trip next summer from our home in Manchester England to Toronto and New York.

it seems almost impossible to do this with direct flights and the leg back from New York seems expensive - may be just as easy to fly back from NY to Toronto and then from there to manchester.

Any advice welcome - only cheap flights I could find I had to change in Dusselforf!!

Hi Sheena;

For inexpensive flights to / from Canada, have a look at Canadian Affair.

www.canadianaffair.com/

For inexpensive flights from Toronto to New York City, conside flying with Porter Airlines. Porter is a smaller, "regional" airline, based in Toronto.

Porter also has fairly regular seat sales, although of course there are no guarantees on this.

I put some random July dates into the kayak search engine and came up with some very reasonable prices. They all involved flying through New York, so it would mean a stop there on your way to Toronto and on your way home (not a direct flight).

You just have to give yourself at two months, three ideally to get your prices in and out of Toronto...

It'll be tricky to get direct flights because different airlines fly the Toronto/UK and NYC/UK routes (British Airways would be the only one to actually fly both, though other airlines can sell you tickets for both via codeshares with partner airlines). Also, there's less choice to Manchester than there would be to London.

You'll definitely want to look for flights using the "multi-city" option to get both trans-atlantic legs in a single booking (most one-ways across the pond are ridiculously expensive). Kayak is a good way to search multiple airlines and sites at once. You should probably try two different searches: MAN-YYZ, YYZ-NYC, NYC-MAN and also MAN-YYZ, NYC-MAN (and book YYZ-NYC separately).

Porter's prices are generally matched by both Air Canada and WestJet, and when one starts a seat sale the others follow. Make sure you don't book two separate tickets on the same day -- flying into Toronto on Porter in the morning to catch your flight home that afternoon is hugely risky, since it's your problem (not the airline's) if you fail to make the connection.

If you have airline points that you can use, they sometimes give you more flexibility -- though the taxes & fees are pretty hefty so you'd be spending both points and cash to get your tickets.

Thanks to everyone - best I have come up with is Canadian Affair to Toronto(used them before and good) ; then Porter or others to New York and Aer Lingus back to Manchester from New York via Dublin(which at least is the right direction)
