LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - August 08, 2013) - The secret is out: Canadians can save big money on air travel by flying out of the closest US airport with Allegiant Air. Offering prices up to 72% less than leading Canadian airline prices, Allegiant is the choice airline for Canadians wishing to spend their hard-earned dollars at their destination, rather than on transportation. Allegiant flies to sunny Hawaii, Las Vegas and several California and Florida destinations.
"Low prices are a short drive away for Canadians who want a nonstop flight to sunshine," said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Co. President. "Travelers who shop around will find substantial savings when flying with Allegiant, as well as great deals on hotels, rental cars and attractions."
To prove this, a comparison was made based on cost for a family of four traveling from several Canadian cities (Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Fredericton and more) on Allegiant versus a leading Canadian carrier. When factoring in the additional expenses involved in driving to cross-border airports, maximum savings ranged from $608.74 to $2,191.64 less than the competition*.
* Note: as airline pricing is dynamic, often changing daily, actual savings will vary based upon date of travel and other factors, such as the number of bags carried or seat selection fees.
Canadians can only take advantage of these nonstop air travel and vacation savings by booking direct through www.allegiant.com.
Allegiant flies from 90 cities across the US to top vacation destinations such as California, Florida, Las Vegas and Hawaii. Canadians can take advantage of Allegiant's nonstop convenient departures from border cities: Plattsburg, NY; Niagara Falls, NY; Grand Forks, ND; Bellingham, WA; Toledo, OH; and Bangor, ME. Allegiant also offers great deals on hotels, rental cars and attractions, further enhancing total vacation savings.
