Vancouver to Mauritius or Madagascar - $818 CAD roundtrip including taxes | add Paris for $33

Mauritius

Air France has dropped the price of some of their flights from Vancouver to Mauritius and Madagascar down to $818 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Vancouver - Mauritius: The flights have 1 stop each way, in Paris, France (9 hours on the way there, 4 hours on the way home).

Vancouver - Madagascar: The flights have 1 stop each way, in Paris, France (3 hours on the way there, 22 hours on the way home).

This is a *very* unusual price, as it's always quite expensive to fly to Mauritius.

If you're wondering where Mauritius might be, well, it's a *long* ways from Vancouver.

It's a 17,000km journey, to an island off the Eastern side of Africa, that's even 1,000km past Madagascar!

Just for comparison, that's 5,000 km further than it is from Vancouver to Sydney, Australia.



I've never been to Mauritius, but from the pictures I've seen, it looks pretty incredible. It reminds me a bit of Bora Bora.

Unlike Bora Bora however, rooms don't cost $600/night in Mauritius. A glance at Airbnb shows that the average rental in Mauritius is a much more reasonable $128 CAD /night.

You can also turn these into a 2-in-1 trip, and visit both Paris, France *and* Mauritius (or Madagascar) for $851 CAD roundtrip (see instructions below).

Update @ 12 PM PST - I haven't seen any working dates for about 40 minutes. Unfortunately I think this one's over!

Availability for travel
