How to land a low priced flight to Toronto

booking advice, visa information and airports and airlines tips

When is the cheapest time to go to Toronto?

Spring and autumn are both great times to fly to Toronto, as you can combine reasonably-priced flights with warm days and cool evenings. Alternatively, you could enjoy a winter city break in Toronto – but only if you're prepared to wrap up warm. The days are very cold, the upside is that there are great deals on Toronto flights during winter. We'd recommend looking for flights in low season to get the very best deals.

At the other end of the spectrum, the expensive summer season runs from June to October, when the city emerges from its winter hibernation, and everyone makes the most of the sun. In summer, the mercury rises to the mid-to-high twenties. Flights are at their most expensive in June, July and August – but it's best to avoid the peak summer months if you can anyway, as the city gets very humid.

When is the best time to book flights to Toronto?

If you know when you want to fly, it's best to book your flights to Toronto about five months in advance to get a good deal. Summer flights can be pricey, so it's best to book as far in advance as possible. Alternatively, if you're flexible on dates, last-minute flights to Toronto in autumn can be excellent value.

How long is the flight from the UK to Toronto?

A direct flight from London to Toronto takes just over eight hours. If you opt for a flight with a stopover – either in Europe or the USA – you can expect a longer journey, but your flight may be cheaper.

Which UK airports offer flights to Toronto?

Several UK airports offer flights to Toronto. You can fly direct from London Gatwick or London Heathrow with a range of airlines. Flights to Toronto are also available from other UK airports, including Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol, but your journey will involve at least one layover.

Which airlines fly to Toronto?

If you want a cheap flight to Toronto, it's worth looking at direct flights from Gatwick with West Jet and Air Transat. These two budget-friendly Canadian airlines often have great deals on flights to Toronto. Alternatively, popular airlines like Air Canada, British Airways and American Airlines all fly direct from London Heathrow.

To save money on your Toronto flights, why not consider having a stopover? You could fly via Amsterdam with KLM, go via Paris with Air France, or have a layover in New York when you fly with Virgin Atlantic.

Flying to Toronto Pearson Airport (YYZ)

Many flights to Toronto land in Canada’s busiest airport, Toronto Pearson. This is an international gateway serving the city of Toronto and the wider Golden Horseshoe area. Located 14 miles northwest of the city centre, the airport consists of Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. A number of airlines – including Air Canada, Air France, Lufthansa, KLM, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic – offer return flights to Toronto Pearson Airport from the UK.

Why visit Toronto?

Toronto is on the A-list of the world’s mega-cities. A financial capital crammed with cosmopolitan neighbourhoods like Chinatown, the Distillery District and the Entertainment District, Toronto is packed with restaurants, theatres, street art, and endless shopping opportunities.

It's also a city offering great variety throughout the year. In summer, it's officially 'patio season' when you can sit outside numerous bars, enjoying the sunshine and local beers. You could hire a kayak and paddle around the Toronto Islands, where you'll have a great view of the city's skyline, or hire a car and drive to Niagara Falls. The calendar is pretty full in summer too, with Canada Day, the Toronto Jazz Festival and the Festival of Beer. Winter, meanwhile, is prime time for ice-skating, ice hockey games, and hopping between the city's bars and restaurants. You'll need to pack warm clothes, though. The temperature regularly drops below freezing in winter, so a decent coat and sturdy footwear are essential for exploring Toronto.

Canada visa & currency details

Before boarding your Toronto flight, don’t forget that you will need to get an electronic travel authorisation (ETA). Simply complete the online application and pay CAD $7. As it can take several days to issue, we'd recommend getting an ETA before you book your flight to Toronto. To find out more about the ETA system, visit the official Canadian government website.
