What is the cheapest way to fly from Toronto/Buffalo to Italy (Rome/Naples)

Asked by brettvdb (1192points) May 19th, 2009

Im trying to fly from Toronto Naples as cheaply as I possibly can. I can get to Buffalo if its going to be a lot cheaper and worth my while, and I can also land in Rome rather than Naples if this will reduce the cost as well. Can anyone share any secrets or tips for getting the absolute lowest possible airfare?

Talk to an international travel agent and if everything else fails build a raft and float there

Well, how good of a swimmer/rower are you?

Have you tried going on or and putting in the embarkation points and destinations? That usually gives you an idea of the routes and fares and you can book the flights on those sites. There are other similar sites such as Sidestep and Orbitz but I don’t use them as much.

You might be able to get a flight from toronto to jfk, then a separate round trip jfk to Rome. That’s a little annoying, but it might be a better deal since flights from major hubs tend to be less expensive. Good luck!

Thanks I’ll look into that and give it a shot

Probably the cheapest route is finding a flight with 2 stops. I just bought tickets from Pittsburgh to Milan for $705 a piece (incl. taxes and fees), which was the lowest fare available now. The flight there stops in DC and Zurich, for example. There are now several sites that will search several ticketing sites all at once, which cuts down on your searching time. I just ran CCleaner the other day and my browser history was deleted, so I can’t remember the names, but I know one of them is called FareCrawler. Two sites that had the cheapest fares were CheapoAir and Vayama.

The cheapest days for travel are Tue, Wed, and Thur, so you’ll want to go/return on those days for the cheapest ticket. Aside from that, play around with different airports. It was cheaper for me to fly into Milan than Rome, even though I figured it would be the other way around, as Rome is such a gigantic airport.
