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

To the destinations listed below, it's usually possible to extend the stop in Istanbul, and have it work out to close to the same price as a roundtrip flight.

How to book the regular roundtrip flight

1. Go to the Turkish Airlines website and search for a flight from Toronto to one of the destinations above.

Try dates in January, February, or March 2016

some examples:

Jan 25 to Feb 8
Feb 1 or 2 to Feb 15
Feb 8 to Feb 22
Feb 14, 15, or 16 to Feb 29 or Mar 1
Feb 22 or 23 to Mar 6 or 7
Mar 6, 7, or 8 to Mar 21
Mar 13, 14, or 15 to Mar 28

For longer trips, you can try mixing and matching the departure and return dates from the list above.

How to book the flight with an extended stopover in Istanbul

1. You may want to start with an example multi-city search on Kayak, like this one...

2. Click on the 'Change' button (top right)

3. Change Prague to one of the other cities from the list above.

4. Try different dates. I would recommend trying the dates from the list above for the 1st and 3rd flight.

NOTE: If the flight on the way home has a really long stop in Istanbul, you can extend it as well, and keep the price roughly the same. In other words, you would have two extended stays in Istanbul, one on the way there, and one on the way home.

Here's an example of how to do that on Kayak...

5. Click through from Kayak to Expedia or Travelocity or FlightNetwork.
