Vancouver to Dublin, Ireland - $365 CAD roundtrip including taxes | various other European cities in the $500s roundtrip

Dublin, Ireland

There's a booking site showing what seems to be error prices on flights from Vancouver to Dublin, Ireland for $365 to $385 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The only booking site showing these is CheapOAir. They are a good booking site, but from experience with mistake fares in the past, I don't have much faith that they can actually get these ticketed fast enough for the price they are showing.

If you do try to book these, take screenshots along the way.

I would expect a call from CheapOAir claiming they couldn't book them.

IMPORTANT: Do not call CheapOAir. If there's any chance of these actually being ticketed, calling will prevent that.

NOTE: You can also find some very cheap flights from Victoria (YYJ) to Europe at the moment.

How to find and book this deal

1. Go to the CheapOAir website

IMPORTANT: This is the CheapOAir.com website, which is in $USD. The $CAD version of the CheapOAir website (.ca) is no longer showing these.

2. Search for a flight from Vancouver (YVR) to Dublin, Ireland (DUB) or try one of the other European cities listed below.

NOTE: You can also find some really low prices from Victoria (YYJ) to Europe at the moment.

3. Try Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday dates in the months listed above.

You can also try the tip at the bottom of this blog post about using Google Flights to look for cheap date combinations with British Airways, and then try those dates on CheapOAir .

I'm also seeing prices in the $500s and $600s roundtrip on CheapOAir from Vancouver and Victoria to London, Rome, and various other European cities

(prices are in $CAD)

Madrid, Spain (MAD) - $559

London, UK (LHR) -- $568

Paris, France (CDG) -- $578

Rome, Italy (FCO) -- $590

Bucharest, Romania (OTP) -- $618

Vienna, Austria (VIE) -- $618

Zagreb, Croatia (ZAG) -- $623

Sofia, Bulgaria (SOF) -- $638

Budapest, Hungary (BUD) -- $655

Prague, Czech Republic (PRG) - $659

Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS) -- $676

Here's a tip to help find working dates for all these flights

1. Go to Google Flights: (British Airways only)

2. Change the destination to one of the ones listed in this blog post.

3. Click on the departure date box to open the calendar view and browse for the cheapest dates you can find. Some of them may be over $1000.

4. Try those dates on CheapOAir

I am also starting to see reports of confirmations from people that they have actually been issued tickets and can check them on the British Airways website.



NOTE: For anyone finding that the CheapOAir (dot ca) website is extremely slow right now, try accessing it from a mobile device. The mobile site seems to still be fairly fast.

Update @ 4:57 PM MST - This may be over. Haven't seen any cheap ones in a while.

UPDATE: I haven't seen any on Cheapoair.ca for a while, but these may still be available on the Cheapoair (dot COM) website.

The CheapOAir.com website is in $USD.

I just saw Vancouver - Dublin for $268 USD, which works out to $344 CAD.

screenshot from the CheapOAir.com website



^^ This was November 15 to 22. But keep trying different dates, it's not over yet!

Multiply what you see on the .com website by 1.29

On CheapoAir.com (the $USD site) - you can also try using promo code AIR50 to bring down the price a little more

It's a little hard to find the spot where you enter the promo code.

It's on the payment page, under 'Price Details' (USD).

Click on 'Promo Code'

Enter: AIR50

    Be careful with Cheapoair. I booked a flight with them from Vancouver to Copenhagen, had all the confirmation emails and such, and a week before they informed me they only had me booked for the first part of my trip (Vancouver-London) and not from London-Copenhagen. They were no help and charged me more, be careful

    Thanks so much Chris! I didn't look for a Dublin flight but I'm still pretty excited to book BA flights to LHR for $566 in late March, right before Easter (with a quick YYC change on the way home). That's $200+ lower than anything I'd been seeing on Transat.

    Chris, thank you so much for all you do! Thanks to you, we are able to travel so much more, and save! Looks like I was able to book Dublin for Mar 19-28, $327CAD; got a confirmation email from cheapoair. Is it safe to say there won't be any unpleasant changes to my booking, or does it not really mean a thing???

    Hi Sasha,

    I think it's too early to be certain yet. I have heard from people who have been able to view their booking on the BA website which is usually a good sign in cases like this, but this appears to be just ending now, so I'm waiting to hear more reports from people that booked these.

    It sounds like a few people have been receiving calls from CheapOAir, which may be a bad sign. So far I haven't heard from anyone that's actually talked to them!

    We were able to book Nov 16 - 22 for $328 per person! Amazing deal. Do you think there's a possibility that they'll cancel this?

    Fingers crossed!

    Hi Chris, I booked the $266 US fare in January, however, when logging onto my BA account there is a message stating: "Your flight is disrupted - we will keep you up to date. Updates about significant changes to your booking will be sent via email and text message to the contact details below. These details will not be used for marketing and can be changed later in Manage My Booking."

    Thanks Chris,

    Just booked Feb 27-Mar 21 for $369CAD, YVR-YYZ-LON-DUB there and DUB-LON-DFW-YVR back. All on BA except YVR-YYZ is with WestJet and LON-DFW-YVR is with AA. I was able to login to BA and check status. Hopefully I dont get a call!

    Quick question. There shouldnt be an issue if I abandon my LON-DUB flight if I wanna start my trip in London is there? As long as I arrive in DUB to start my return flight home, right?

    Thanks for this find!

    Hi Nathan,

    If you intentionally miss the leg of a flight, the airlines will usually automatically cancel all remaining legs on the same ticket.

    Hi all

    I booked the Dublin deal. On the way there we travel with Westjet then American then British Airways. Do we need to leave the security area ans go to the check in gate and back through security each time we switch airlines or is there another way to get the boardung pass? We qre newbies with travel
    Thanks

    Hey Chris,

    I booked this last week Thursday and have been able to login to the airlines website and choose seats. But when I look at my cc account it looks like CheapoAir has only charged me for $3.00 CAD -- is this normal? Should I expect the rest of the payment in the next week or so? Shall I call them and inquire? Is my ticket still valid?

    Thanks

    Hey Chris - similar issue as above - two tickets to Dublin in May 2018

    I booked last week and have been able to login to the airlines website and chose seats (BA has charged me for the seats and this is on my credit card (CC) statement).

    But ..... when I look at my cc account it looks like CheapoAir has only charged me for $16.00 CAD as opposed to the total charge of $781.42 they emailed me.

    Should I expect the rest of the payment in the next week or so? Shall I call them and inquire? Is my ticket still valid?

    Has Keith been here?
       Keith on August 19th, 2017

    On further review it is all there. The charges are to WestJet as opposed to BA despite the fact that only one of the 5 legs is with Westjet. Each charge to WestJet is 382.71 x 2 plus one charge of $16 to Cheap of Air which adds uo the $781.42 for two flights Vancouver to Dublin. As I say above seats with BA have been booked and paid for so all looks good (smiles)
