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

Calgary to Vietnam, and then the Philippines to Calgary - $471 CAD including taxes

Vietnam and the Philippines

There are some insane open jaw flight prices out there, where you fly from Calgary to Vietnam and then fly home from Manila, Philippines to Calgary - all for just $471 CAD including taxes.

Getting from one country to the other

It typically costs around $130 CAD (or less) to fly from Vietnam to the Philippines.

Tip: For flights from Vietnam to the Philippines, have a look at Cebu Pacific Air. They don't show up on many travel search engines, but have non-stop flights for around $96 to $123 USD.

If you change it to 'United States of America English' in the top right corner before you search, the prices will be in $USD, instead of the Philippine peso.

Availability for travel

September, October, and November 2016

How to find and book this deal

1. Start with a search like this on Google Flights ...

Google Flights search: Calgary to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and then Manila, Philippines to Calgary

Click on the departure date box to try other dates.

2. Click through from Google Flights to the United website.

You may also be able to find these for slightly cheaper by searching on Momondo.ca - And if you can't seem to book them from Google Flights (some dates work, some don't), it's also worth trying from Momondo.

Click on 'Trip Type' and change it to 'Multiple Destinations'

Search for a flight like this:

Calgary (YYC) to Ho Chi Minh City (SGN)
Manila, Philippines (MNL) to Calgary (YYC)

    Just tried booking this deal for February. Google said $436 - called to book and the lady quoted me for $3969. :( Not so much a deal...

    Yeah, when Google Flights can't verify a price anymore, it just puts up a 'call the airline' message.

    These ones have been around for a while now, and availability could be getting sparse.

    I just tried Feb 6 to 20 on Google Flights though, and it was able to verify the price, after clicking through to United.

    Feb 6 to 23 is also working, for $470 CAD through Google Flights to United.

    For the journey there, pick the third flight, the one that says 'United, ANA'

    For the journey home, pick the first flight, the one that says 'ANA, Air Canada'

    These are still out there, but you may need to play around with the dates and/or the flight choices that come up on Google Flights.
