The fare war for flights from France to Canada continues. The newest participant: TAP. From the French airports in Lyon, Paris, and Nice, you’ll be able to fly to Montreal starting at only €197! The price for flights from Lyon to Toronto is also attractive, costing only €266. As usual, you can also add a stopover in Lisbon of up to 5 days to your trip, in either direction. Unless you’re a Star Alliance Gold member, however, flying with luggage increases the price to at least €330.
Our calendar displays all available dates for trips of up to 28 days. You can either get the cheapest price on our Travel-Dealz flight search, or pay roughly €35 more to book on TAP’s website. The latter is the better option if you’re going to book the fare that includes luggage.
The cheapest prices to Montreal can be found:
You would first fly roughly 2 hours to Lisbon, from where you’d fly to Canada onboard an Airbus A321neo, which offers on-demand video, in-seat power, and USB ports to charge your devices. Overall, an average economy class. As mentioned before, TAP allows you to stay up to 5 days in Lisbon before continuing your trip.

Information & Tips for Canada
The North American country of Canada is the second largest country in the world in terms of surface area. In Canada, English and French are the official languages. Tourists visit Canada because of its many natural attractions and large cities, and the flight prices vary between the east and west coasts. Flights to the east coast e.g. to Toronto or Montreal regularly cost less than 400€. For flights to the west coast, e.g. to Vancouver or Calgary, prices are closer to 400€ – 600€. Other destinations are mostly only reachable with an additional domestic flight. Just like in the USA, most airlines now only offer cheap fares that do not include checked baggage. For checked baggage you should budget an additional 50€ per direction.
Best Time to Travel
Canada is a huge country with many varying climate conditions, but it is safe to say that the winters (November to March) are very cold and snowy in most regions. Summers are relatively mild and partly rainy.
Immigration & Visa Requirements
Most EU citizens do not need a visa for tourist stays of up to 6 months. However, an electronic travel waiver (eTA) must be applied for, similar to the ESTA required for entry into the USA. This costs CA$7 (~€5) and is valid for up to 5 years.
Canada’s national currency is the Canadian Dollar (CAD). One euro is approximately CA$1.44. Many credit cards may charge a foreign currency fee of up to 2% to pay in CAD.
Transfer from Canada to the USA
Canada is located north of the USA and is the only other country apart from Mexico that shares a border with it (2 borders, actually: Alaska borders Canada in the southeast!) At many airports in Canada US immigration is already done before departure, so you arrive in the USA as a “domestic” passenger in the domestic terminal which can potentially save you lots of time since you do not have to stand in line at customs upon arriving. By land the same entry formalities take place as at the airport or by train at the station in Canada. Most EU citizens don’t need a visa and can instead make use of the digital ESTA procedure.
