With great sights and fun activities throughout the year, there really is no ‘bad’ time to visit Canada’s fourth largest city. If your travel dates are flexible and you are looking for the cheapest flights to Calgary, avoid peak times and holidays when national and international flights are in high demand. The city experiences a surge in visitors during the Calgary Stampede in July, national holidays, and Christmas holidays. If you need to travel during these periods, book your flights and accommodation early to avoid disappointment. If you want to save on travel fares, book domestic flights outside of these times for the best deals.
