Getting to and Travelling around

The first step to a successful holiday is to book the right flights that suit your needs and with Travelpack you have 14 airlines to choose from.  All of our Airline partners provide the service you would expect from a world-class schedule carrier.  Daily scheduled services to most destinations, and many airlines have refitted their aircraft to give you extra legroom in economy class with up to a 34-inch pitch for extra comfort on state of the art aircraft.  We also offer Charter flights to Canada to all the major gateways.
Travelling around Canada could not be easier.  Hire a car, opt for a scheduled or private transfer to and from the airport and inbetween destinations, travel by train or take advantage of the many escorted tours on offer.  Why not hire a campervan and explore and country at your own leisure.  When in resort make use of the plentiful taxi service with accross the board fixed rates. 

Best Time and Weather

The climate in Canada is very much influenced by the latitude of each area.  As you travel further North the temperature will lower.  There are four seasons during the year which are defined by the individual areas.  Along the coastline it is more humid than it is inland where it is much dryer. 
July and August are the hottest months of the year when temperatures reach in excess of 20 degrees centigrade.  The winter months can be extremely cold with temperatures dropping to -20 degrees centigrade during the month of January.
Each season has a lot to offer and it is difficult to choose the perfect time to visit.  July and August are excellent for camping, winter offers fantastic skiing and spring and autumn display the fantastic foliage and spectacular views.
