"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YVR." - Chris Myden

Vancouver to Istanbul, Turkey | $809 roundtrip including taxes

Istanbul, Turkey

KLM just dropped the price of their Vancouver to Istanbul, Turkey (IST) flights down to $809 roundtrip after taxes. It was the result of asking Facebook fans 'which destination do you think will be the trendy destination for 2015?'.

Istanbul came in third, after Bali, Indonesia (#1) and Cape Town, South Africa.

KLM claims that all 3 were put on sale for the promotion, but out of those three destinations, I would say Istanbul is probably the best deal, although Cape Town is priced pretty well too.

Istanbul, Turkey - $809

Cape Town, South Africa - $1149 (quite a good price. About as cheap as it ever gets from Western Canada)

Bali, Indonesia - $1712 ($1000-$1100 or so to Bali is not uncommon from other airlines. KLM usually isn't that competitive on this route.)

What dates have dropped?

Departures between January and May 6, 2015.

When should I go?

Focus on April/May dates if you can. Temperatures start to climb back up from mild in March & April, to being warm in May.

How long should I go for?

I would say 10-12 nights is about right if you want to explore the highlights of Turkey. Just my opinion based on my trip from 2012.

How to find and book

Start with a 3 day flexible date search on Kayak. Here's an example search...

2 adults - mid April to late April

From Kayak, hit the Select button, which will take you to the KLM website for booking.

With KLM, you can always get a free stopover in Amsterdam. It might be easier to call them to make the booking. But first, you might want to note which dates are the cheapest to fly between Vancouver and Istanbul, from your Kayak search.

How long do I have to decide?

For this promotion, KLM will be putting their fares back up on Mon, Dec 22nd. But airfare prices always react to demand, so higher demand dates could jump up in price if KLM sells a certain number of seats.
