Vegas tickets

Going to Vagas sometime this winter (from near Toronto). Any good deals (round trip/one way) for flying there?

Winter is off season. The flights will be limited. Flights from Ottawa suck. Finding a deal will be tough.
I suggest getting on Expedia or something like it and look for flight and hotel deals. That would be your best bet.

Seriously consider flying out of the states. You will save a significant amount

not true anymore with Canadian dollar. Pearson is your best bet. Westjet and Air Canada both fly direct from Toronto twice a day

Savings depend on where you're leaving from, where you're going, how many people you are, exchange rate, parking fees, etc.

In some cases, the savings might only end up being $75 or $100 a ticket. If you're a couple, does it make sense driving two hours each way just to save $200?

That cannot be said for certain. Lots of factors to consider.
The OP is from Ottawa, going to the states tofly would take a lot of time, a lot of gas and in Winter, it may not be a fun trip.

Hmm - different than here (Edmonton). Drive to Spokane (12 hrs), overnight in a hotel that lets you park free, fly to Vegas for 3 days & return. Save $200 each - allowing for exchange, time and expenses

LOL, how much do you value your time?

I highly doubt the savings are worth a 12 hour trip to Spokane...

2 12 hour trips..one there and one back. Perhaps another 12 hours and he could be in Vegas?
Just checked Google maps, it is a 22 hr drive from Edmonton LOL.

I'd rather take 3 connecting flights there and 3 back.

You're wasting two days of your vacation to save $200 each. You're each saving $8.33 an hour. It would be more cost effective to spend that time working at a minimum wage job and then using those earnings to leave from Edmonton.
