British Columbia, Wikipedia describes it as "The westernmost province of Canada, with a population of more than four million people located between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. British Columbia is also a component of the Pacific Northwest and the Cascadia bioregion, along with the U.S. states of Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Alaska."
The weather in Montreal is getting colder and snow storms are on the horizon. But luckily, there are some Black Friday travel deals you can take advantage of with Air Transat.
According to their website, Air Transat is offering discount flight deals for less than $300. There's also a number of tropical beach locations you can get to for as little as $441 and European cities you can get lost in for as little as $650. But it's important to note that these Black Friday deals end November 28.
Among the places you can visit for less than $300 are New Orleans and Fort Lauderdale, which means you could avoid freezing temperatures altogether and relish the holiday season by the water.
However, if you're unable to book a flight during the holidays, there are a few tropical beach locations you can get to in the $400 range include Varadero, Santa Clara, Cayo Coco and Holguin. You can kick off the start of 2022 with a tan that will make your friends jealous.
If you're more into European architecture, museums, art and culture, you could venture off to Lisbon and/or Paris. Instead of walking in minus zero temperatures or slipping on ice on your daily commute, you can spend part of 2022's more frigid days taking pics in front of the Eiffel Tower. Maybe even run into Cristiano Ronaldo if he's back in Portugal to take a break from Manchester United.
Transat also offers low-cost couples package deals to all-inclusive hotels. An example of this is a stay at the Hotel Playa Coco Santa Maria in Cuba for $649 per adult.

Poised to start sending out flights by June of 2018, Canada Jetlines promises flights from one end of Canada to the other for about $100.
Canada Jetline’s CEO, Stan Gadek, announced the company’s air travel initiatives at a press conference in Toronto yesterday.
Gadek said flights on Canada Jetliner will cost “the price of a pair of jeans,” reports CBC.
That’s not exactly a specific metric (who knows where this guy buys jeans) but Gadek did follow up with a bit more info, saying flights will generally be less than $100.
Gadek also touched on the current prices for flights in Canada, which are incredibly high. According to Gadek, “there’s no rational basis” for the prices Canadians pay to fly, given the lowering cost of fuel and airplane infrastructure.
The new low-cost airline is planning to launch on June 1st of next year, operating out of Hamilton and Waterloo.
Thrifty Canadians can then take an airplane ride to Halifax, Calgary, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Vancouver.
More flights and destinations will be added as time goes on, with Canada Jetlines aiming to have six planes in operation by the sixth month-mark, heading out to international markets like Cancun and Florida.
Canadians are ata distinct disadvantage when it comes to domestic tourism. Visiting the west coast or the Maritimes from Quebec or Ontario can be more expensive than flying internationally.
So that’s what most Canadians do when taking a trip, leaving our beautiful nation to head elsewhere, all because Canadian airlines set their prices too high.
Hopefully Canada Jetlines, and other new low-cost airlines like Flair (originally NewLeaf), will make flying far more affordable, pushing the major airlines like Air Canada and Air Transat to lower their prices.
