Toronto to Paris, Amsterdam, Finland, & other Scandinavian countries | in the $500s roundtrip including taxes

Deal #1 - Toronto to Paris, France (CDG) and then Lille, France (XDB) back to Toronto - $533 to $550 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Lille is in the northern part of France, right near the border of Belgium.

Note that XDB is a train station. So on the way home, your airfare includes a train ticket from XDB back to Paris to catch the flight to Toronto.


To book, you can go to www.airfrance.ca and click on 'Multi-destination itinerary'.

Search for a flight from YYZ to CDG, and then XDB to YYZ.

Try Wed & Thu dates from October 2015 through to early January 2016.

example of what your search screen should look like on the Air France website:

One interesting date combo is December 30 to January 7. New Year's in Paris!

Some good info about how to get from Paris to Lille, courtesy of YYZ Deals Facebook Group member, Lindsay:

"To get from Paris to Lille you can take a Flibco bus or a Megabus. I think megabus actually stops at the airport a few times a day. Busses would take about three hours, so they are slower but also cheaper than the trains (Thalys and another option, I forget). In general it's 20-40 euros one way. Definitely buy ahead as the busses sell out and train tickets can get super pricy the day of. Alternatively, if you're up for an adventure, you can sign up for a cheap ride share with locals on blablacar."

Deal #2 - A multi-city deal from Toronto to Helsinki, Finland to Amsterdam, Netherlands and then back to Toronto - for $485 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Yes, with this multi-city deal you can spend time in each city.

You can also substitute Amsterdam for Paris, and it will work out to about $20 more.


Start with a Google Multi City flight search, like this....

Toronto to Helsinki to Amsterdam to Toronto

Toronto to Helsinki to Paris to Toronto

With the example links above, the dates are in November. You can try adjusting the dates to other dates between September 2015 and February 2016.

You may want to focus on Tuesday flights at first, to see if the cheap price is available.

Once you see something you like, you can either click through from Google Flights to the KLM website or Air France website for booking, or you can take the same dates and destinations you found and try searching on KLM.com or AirFrance.ca directly

KLM.com - click on 'several destinations' on the home page to start your search.
