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

Saskatoon to Lisbon, Portugal - $905 roundtrip after taxes

Lisbon, Portugal

For those of you that were following the KLM contest (and even those that weren't), the votes are in, and Lisbon, Portugal has been chosen to go on sale for the next 48 hours from Saskatoon.

It's perhaps not *quite* as exciting (to me, personally) as the deal to Turkey for $800 last year, but $905 to Lisbon is still a pretty amazing price, relative to the usual bottom price of about $1350-$1450.

Kudos to KLM for holding this contest once again. The world of airfares is cut-throat, so to have an airline drop their price drastically below their usual levels and force their competitors do the same is a rare and welcome treat, especially when it's to interesting destinations.

Just like last year's Turkey deal, other airlines have responded by dropping their prices to Lisbon as well, to match KLM's price drop.

The easiest way to explore what's available is to use Google Flights Explorer.

As far as availability goes, the cheap fares are available on flights from mid October to the first week of May.

However, as long as you depart on or before May 6th, you can come back later than mid-May. May 6 to May 21 is valid for example. You can even come back in July if you want, as long as you depart May 6 or earlier.

Once you've narrowed down your dates, you may want to try them on Kayak, which can offer more powerful filters and sort capabilities than Google Flights.

And as I mentioned, various airlines besides KLM are matching this price, or coming close to it, which includes Air Canada, Delta, Lufthansa, and United Airlines.

Certain airlines always offer a free stopover (or just a few dollars more). On KLM for example, you can get a free stopover in Amsterdam.

Here's a tutorial on how to book free stopovers in Amsterdam on KLM.

Temperatures in Lisbon in October are fairly pleasant, with average highs of 22C and average lows of 15C. May is similar, with average highs of 22C and lows of 13C. The months in between are 5 to 8 degrees cooler.

These prices should be around on most airlines, until KLM changes their fares back in 48 hours on Friday, July 26 .

For those of you that watch the Bachelorette (I don't, I swear!), you may remember that they recently visited Madeira, which is an island that is about a 2 hour flight from Lisbon...


Madeira has always been pretty high on my list of places that I want to visit (again, long before the Bachelorette ever visited, honest) and it can be reached on TAP Portugal from Lisbon for a very cheap price, often for under $120 roundtrip after taxes.

Search for flights from Lisbon (LIS) to Madeira, Portugal (FNC) in your favorite search engine. Potentially, you could visit Lisbon, Madeira, *and* Amsterdam for less than $1000 for all flights, after taxes.

The Azores Islands are also pretty cheap to get to from Lisbon (under $150 roundtrip), and are about a 2 hour flight away. Whale and dolphin watching, diving, hot springs, and volcano climbing are some of the highlights of the Azores. Look for flights from Lisbon to Ponta Del Gada (PDL).

    Found these on google flights for 1000 but when we went to book we got a popup that said to call westjet? So I called them and they said only a travel agent can book them? Do u know why this is?

    Might want to try searching on Kayak. Sometimes Google Flights will tell you to call WestJet if it involves a connecting flight to a larger city from Saskatoon.
