Known for its cosmopolitan culture, vibrant arts scene and beautiful Pacific coast scenery, Vancouver is a great city destination in its own right, and acts as a gateway to the soaring mountains and world-class ski resorts of British Columbia.

It’s also relatively well served from the UK, so while flying there isn't cheap, there is scope to shop around and find some good flight deals. As well as direct flights from London Heathrow all year round, there are seasonal direct routes from London Gatwick, Glasgow and Manchester. And of course, other UK airports offer routes with a stopover.

May and June are the sweet spots for cheap Vancouver flights. The weather is beginning to warm up, and prices are low; summer brings the inevitable school holiday increase, and the winter months (particularly December and January) are affected by festive and ski season travel. It you do want to come for ski season, you'll find better prices in November and from late January to April. A small number of ski resorts still operate into May, so they're worth looking at if you want to keep those flight prices as low as possible.

Indirect flights are not necessarily cheaper, particularly on London-Vancouver routes, but can be worth a look – and keep your eyes out for WestJet and Air Transat's direct summer flights from Gatwick, which can be very competitive.
