From coast to coast, there’s so much to see in this big and beautiful country of ours.

With the holidays quickly approaching, it might be time to start considering the best methods for getting around to see loved ones.

As we know, flights can be tricky within Canada. Often, you can fly south of the border for cheaper prices than flights within Canada. Sometimes, it can get a bit overwhelming especially when you start to look at ticket prices for flights.

But, it’s all about timing.

Luckily, Skyscanner, the travel fare aggregator website and travel metasearch engine, has released data on the best time to book flights to four major Canadian cities — Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, and Montreal.

Toronto’s flight pricing comes with a little bit more planning, according to Skyscanner, as the best time to book flights to Canada’s most populous city is 22 weeks in advance.

Luckily for Toronto-bound travels around the holidays, December is the cheapest month of the year to travel to the 6ix.

Flying to Calgary:

Start the new year off in Calgary, perhaps?
