Typical prices

Since there are so many locations to fly into India and so many to fly out of in Canada, it is hard to give an average amount for the cost of airfare prices. Prices can range widely depending on your location and the time of year you are traveling, but expect to pay at least $800 and up to about $1600.

The off season, which is the summer months of June, July, and August tend to offer the lowest rates. This is because these months are the main monsoon season in India. Airfare in the busy season tends to be only a couple hundred dollars more when booked well in advance. Flying from the east coast of Canada will also be cheaper than flying from the west, and the price tends to go up the more connections you require.
