Madness to Europe, Tunisia, and Morocco! Insane prices to many, many places in the $400s and $500s roundtrip including taxes
KLM and Air France dropped the prices from Vancouver to virtually everywhere they fly in Europe, Tunisia, and Morocco down into the $500s roundtrip including taxes today.
The list of destinations below will continue to grow. Refresh the blog post for the latest.
If it's on the map above, it's probably on sale.
These prices are also available from Victoria.
Availability for travel
Mostly October, November 2016, but also some in September, and in January/February/March 2017, depending on the destination.
You may want to focus on the destinations that are further south, as the weather will still be warmer in the fall.

Free stopovers in Amsterdam or Paris
It's generally possible to get a free stopover in Amsterdam using KLM, or in Paris using Air France.
Below are some more destinations in Europe that *may* be available in the $400s to $600s roundtrip including taxes.
It's overwhelming to list them all, so I've focused on destinations that are either further south in Europe (warmer in September, October, November), or just popular places in general.
It's impossible to verify that the prices are bookable for every destination. Have a look on Google Flights, and try booking either from Google Flights to the airline's website, or through the third party booking sites mentioned below:
(Even when Google Flights can't seem to find a way to book it for the displayed price, it's worth trying the booking sites above, as they may be able to).
In some cases, the flights may be through British Airways, with a change of airport required, so watch out for that.

TIP: Even though Google Flights only shows prices up to May 2017...
... you can book flights through FlightHub using dates up to about the third week of June 2017.
There are some pretty cheap prices starting to appear for May and June 2017 travel to Europe.
example: Vancouver - Barcelona, Spain for $616 CAD roundtrip including taxes. May 17 to 31, 2017.
Any destination in Europe would be worth trying at the moment.
I'm not sure if Flight Centre is able to book the late May / June 2017 flights or not. Their online calendar does not go that far ahead, but perhaps it's possible over the phone. For the promo itself, there are no blackout dates.
Non-stop flights from Vancouver to Amsterdam or London are potentially available for as low as $439 to $489 CAD roundtrip including taxes
Air Canada has dropped their non-stop flights from Vancouver to London (LHR), England down to $589 CAD roundtrip including taxes in September, October, and November 2016. And January to May 2017. With the Flight Centre promo, it should be possible to book these flights for $489.
Non-stop flights from Vancouver to Amsterdam, Netherlands for $539 CAD roundtrip including taxes are available in October and November 2016. And January to March 2017. With the Flight Centre promo, it should be possible to book these flights for $439.
6/28 - Morning update
Added a few more destinations to the list above that have been showing up with low prices...
The Star Alliance (Air Canada, Lufthansa, etc) started matching prices yesterday evening. You can try setting the 'Star Alliance' filter in Google Flights to see what's available (it's under 'Airline').
6/29 @ 10:40 PM PST - The prices on Google Flights have gone back up
This is probably a sign that the deal is ending.
At the moment, relatively low prices in the $400s and $500s roundtrip are still verifying on Expedia from Vancouver to Dublin. The situation may be the same for other destinations. This likely won't last too much longer!
