Montreal to South Africa, Mauritius or Madagascar - $587 to $649 CAD roundtrip including taxes | add Paris for $36

Mauritius

Air France has dropped the price of some of their flights from Montreal to Mauritius and Madagascar down to $649 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop each way, in Paris, France.

The Montreal - South Africa flights have a 14 hour layover in Paris on the way there.

The Montreal - Madagascar flights have a 2 hour layover in Paris each way.

The Montreal - Mauritius flights have a 4 hour layover in Paris each way.

You can also turn the flights to Mauritius or Madagascar into a 2-in-1 trip with Paris, and it only bumps the price up by $36 (see instructions below).

If you're wondering where Mauritius might be, well, it's a *long* ways from Montreal.

It's a 15,000km journey, to an island off the Eastern side of Africa, that's even 1,000km past Madagascar!



I've never been to Mauritius, but from the pictures I've seen, it looks pretty incredible. It reminds me a bit of Bora Bora.

Unlike Bora Bora however, rooms don't cost $600/night in Mauritius. A glance at Airbnb shows that the average rental in Mauritius is a much more reasonable $128 CAD /night.

Update @ 3 PM EST - I haven't seen any working dates for about 40 minutes. Unfortunately I think this one's over!

Availability for travel

South Africa: January, February, March 2019

Mauritius: September, October 2018 and January, February, March, April, May, June 2019

Madagascar: January, February, March, April, May 2019

Mauritius has a classic tropical climate with warm weather year-round.

October is one of the driest months of the year for Mauritius. Note that January to March is Mauritius's wet / cyclone season.
