Jamaica vacations have become a winter haven with many people flocking to Kingston and Montego Bay to enjoy the sun and sand. There are year round connecting, non-stop, direct and charter flights to Jamaica.

Air Canada has direct flights to Kingston from Toronto daily. From any other Canadian gateway you will only find connecting flights to Kingston. There are multiple airlines providing connecting flights to Kingston from all over Canada throughout the year. From Toronto alone you can fly to Kingston with Air Canada, Air Jamaica, American Airlines and Caribbean Airlines. Unfortunately there are no charter flights to Kingston available from Air Transat or Sunwing.

Flying to Jamaica From Outside of Canada
Sometimes you can get better deals on tickets if you depart from the United States. If you do come across discount airfare or seat sales make sure you look into what is involved before you buy. If flying from an American airport is quick and convenient for you then it is a great way to get cheap flights. However it may not be convenient if you need to offset any savings from discount airfare with the hassle involved in getting to and from the airport. Make sure any added expenses involved with traveling to and from the US airport don’t use up the savings from the discount airfare. Also any cheap flights to Montego Bay you find flying from United States will all be connecting, not direct or non-stop. When it comes right down to it you should only fly from outside of Canada if it is more convenient for you or you are actually saving money with cheap flights.
Finding Cheap Flights to Jamaica
You can quickly see prices, airlines, departure times and any connections when you use tripcentral.ca’s flight reservation page. If you want cheap flights to Jamaica just look for the label Best Price. You may also see the Best Value label. The Best Value label is used to feature flights to Jamaica that combine comfort, convenience and discount airfare. Often direct and charter flights are given the label Best Value.
The trick to finding cheap flights to Jamaica is to know when to look for them, and when to buy. Discount airfare and seat sales are available at different times. The best time to look for discount airfare is four months in advance. Though theoretically discount airfare can be found anytime between one to four months before your trip or holiday. Booking sooner than later will let you take advantage of any discounts being offered before they sell out.
If there are going to be any seat sales they will be held in the last four weeks. It is a myth that discount airfare will always be available at the last minute. Seat sales don’t happen if a flight is popular. Seat sales only happen when there are numerous unsold seats.
There is risk when you hold off booking in an attempt to get last minute savings with seat sales. The truth is that seat sales are only held when there are many unsold tickets. It is possible to get cheap flights if there are seat sales. But on the other hand there might not be any seat sales and the flight could sell out or the tickets could go up in price.
Know the Real Ticket Price
Everything is openly displayed on tripcentral.ca’s flight reservation system making it easier to do accurate price comparisons. Taxes are already part of the price. This way you will know the bottom line ticket price. Also you will find cheap flights to Jamaica labelled Best Price no matter what airline it’s with or if the savings is from charter airfare, seat sales or discount airfare.
Know What You Are Paying Before You Buy
You should always be careful when looking for cheap flights or deals. When comparing airplane ticket prices remember that tripcentral.ca’s posted airfares include the taxes. Not everyone includes the tax so it’s a good idea not to buy anything until you know the actual costs involved. What you see may not be discount airfare. The price shown might be low because it does not include any tax. When you find cheap flights always check to see if you have to add taxes or any fees before you get the actual cost.
