Checking for occasional specials on a biweekly basis can result in reductions of around 15 percent on tickets, according to Canadian Backpacking blog IBackpack Canada. Bookings made mid-week are usually cheaper than those made on weekends, as demand is lower. Tuesday or Wednesday bookings are ideal. Searching the Web for coupon codes to apply during checkout can lead to additional savings; Smart Canucks and Bargain Moose are Canada-exclusive coupon sites that often host Air Canada Coupons.

Comparing prices on multiple ticket trackers often results in higher savings. Many mainstream ticket trackers take a sales commission, meaning that such mainstream trackers should be avoided in favor of lesser-known but more reliable trackers. Orbitz and Expedia are infamous for charging more than tickets’ actual costs, whereas SkipLagged and Skyscanner often provide more realistic ticket quotes. Booking early can also lead to higher savings. Ideally, bookings should be made at least three to four weeks in advance.
