Toronto to South Africa or Mauritius - $580 to $654 CAD roundtrip including taxes | add Paris for $31

Mauritius

Air France has dropped the price of some of their flights from Toronto to South Africa and Mauritius down to between $580 and $654 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop each way, in Paris, France.

The Toronto - Johannesburg, South Africa flights have a 13 hour layover in Paris on the way there.

The Toronto - Mauritius flights have a 7 hour layover in Paris on the way there.

With the flights to South Africa, you can get rid of the long layover by turning these into a 2-in-1 trip, with an extended stay in Paris, and visit both destinations (see instructions below).

If you're wondering where Mauritius might be, well, it's a *long* ways from Toronto.

It's a 15,000km journey, to an island off the Eastern side of Africa, that's even 1,000km past Madagascar!



I've never been to Mauritius, but from the pictures I've seen, it looks pretty incredible. It reminds me a bit of Bora Bora.

Unlike Bora Bora however, rooms don't cost $600/night in Mauritius. A glance at Airbnb shows that the average rental in Mauritius is a much more reasonable $128 CAD /night.

Update @ 3 PM EST - I haven't seen any working dates for about 40 minutes. Unfortunately I think this one's over!

Availability for travel

Mauritius: September, October, November, early December 2018 and January, February, March, April, May, June 2019

South Africa: November, early December 2018 and January, February 2019

Mauritius has a classic tropical climate with warm weather year-round.

October is one of the driest months of the year for Mauritius. Note that January to March is Mauritius's wet / cyclone season.

You can also turn these into a 2-in-1 trip, and visit both Paris, France *and* Johannesburg, South Africa for an extra $31

- with non-stop flights between Toronto and Paris, and from Paris to Johannesburg!

1. Go to Flighthub

2. Change the trip type to 'Multi City'

Search for a flight like this one:

Toronto (YYZ) to Paris, France (CDG)
Paris, France (CDG) to Johannesburg, South Africa (JNB)
Johannesburg, South Africa (JNB) to Toronto (YYZ)

3. For the 1st and 3rd flights, try using start and end dates from the list of regular roundtrip dates to Johannesburg (top of the blog post).

For example, if you see a regular roundtrip flight from Feb 6 to Feb 20, try the following dates for the Multi City trip:

Feb 6 to Feb 10 to Feb 20.

You can also try playing around with the middle date to give yourself more or less time in Paris vs South Africa.
