Vancouver to Barcelona, Venice, Prague | $843 roundtrip after taxes
Thanks to the contest on KLM, the cities of Barcelona, Prague, and Venice are now on sale from Vancouver for around $843 roundtrip after taxes.
Barcelona was clearly the first choice for the public, but both Prague and Venice were selected for the discount as well, since the final tallies for these 2 cities were so close.
Even though KLM Canada hasn't officially announced it yet, the fares have already been loaded into the major search engines, and can also be found on KLM's website. Competing airlines have also lowered their fares to match.
The available dates that have cheap prices vary by airline, but in general, the dates that look to have dropped are mostly concentrated between now and mid May, and dates between October 16 and December 10.
Here are some example searches on Kayak to get you started, but try your own dates. (Note that Kayak may not quite have all the latest prices loaded yet, as this fare drop literally just happened. You should try your dates on the airline's own website as well).
Also don't forget that certain airlines offer free stopovers in their main hub city for however many days you want...
KLM - Free stopovers in Amsterdam
Air France - Free stopovers in Paris
To get a free stopover it's usually easiest to book through the airline's own website, and search for a multi-city flight.
To get a free stopover in Amsterdam on KLM for example, here is what you would do:
1. Go to the KLM page for multi-city booking, found here:
2. Enter the following:
Vancouver to Amsterdam - departing April 7 (or whatever date you want)
Amsterdam to Prague - departing April 10 (or whatever date you want)
Prague to Vancouver - departing April 14 (or whatever date you want)
3. Hit Search. The price should be similar to the regular round-trip fare (perhaps a few dollars more in some cases).
4. Go through the booking process
You can do the same thing on Air France's site, but using Paris as your stopover city instead of Amsterdam.
Even though this sale is only being offered on off-season dates, it's still a very good price relative to what fares normally go for, especially to Prague which is usually a minimum of $1300 from Vancouver. It's virtually unheard of to see good prices to Eastern Europe from Western Canada.
I believe the low fares will be available for the next 48 hours.
UPDATE: Prague can actually be had for as cheap as $750 roundtrip after taxes using a combination of KLM and Czech Airlines. Try searching on SkyScanner to find them. Here's an example:
