How Do I Book a Flight to Toronto?

Toronto's main airport, Pearson International, is Canada's busiest, and it lies on the western border of town, close to the suburb of Missisaugua, about 13 miles from the city center. With 24-hour transportation, you can arrive at any time — even though traveling to and from the center between 1 a.m. and 5.30 a.m. might take longer. Toronto is Canada's main hub for European flights, and prices can be as low as $450 return if booked 4-5 months or more in advance. Flights booked a month before departure can raise up to $800. Flights from the U.S. are very convenient, starting from $250 return from New York and $500 from the West Coast. Prices are higher during spring break and school holidays, as well as during public holidays in Canada and in the country of departure. 

What's the Best Way to Get to and from the Airport?

There are several options to travel to and from downtown Toronto to the airport. The cheapest is public transport — for $3 you can catch the 192 Airport Rocket bus from the lowest level of each terminal to Kipling subway station, from where you can travel to the city center. Another option is bus 52 to Lawrence West and Lawrence Station crossing the northwestern part of town, but it's about 20 minutes slower than the Rocket bus. There are also night buses operating from 1 a.m. to 5.30 a.m. (8.30 a.m. on Sundays), 300A and 307 running once every 20-30 minutes. With either route, you might transfer at Yonge Street to the 320 Yonge night bus to get downtown.

Are There any Nearby Hotels?

There are several hotels in the airport surrounds, within a 10-mile radius. To be on the airport's doorstep, your best bet would be booking a room at ALT Hotel Pearson, a stylish hotel located on airport property and only a quick ride away on the LINK train. Other options are the Comfort Inn Toronto Airport and Quality Suites Toronto Airport, less than a mile away. For a step up in style, you can opt for the Best Western and Residence Inn by Marriott, both about a mile from the terminals. Free parking is on offer while you're away at all hotels for a maximum of eight to 15 days, depending on the property. You can conveniently book on arrival at the airport hotel desk.

How to Get to Niagara Falls from Toronto Airport?

Given the vicinity of the Falls from Toronto, many travelers choose to fly into Toronto and head straight there. If you don't have your own car, your best bet would be to get in touch with a shuttle service company like Niagara Airbus, offering shuttle buses and charter taxi services from Toronto Airport to hotels and towns in the Niagara Falls area. Prices vary depending on location, pick-up time, and amount of luggage, but start from $130 return for two people for a shared car to $400 return to charter your own vehicle.

What's Toronto Airport Like?

As one of North America's largest airports, Toronto Airport offers a variety of shops, restaurants, and services to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There's free Wi-Fi in all terminals and a wide choice of bars and shops, both before and after security. So, whether you want to grab a quick snack at 7-Eleven or shop at Gucci or Salvatore Ferragamo, you'll be able to get what you're after. There are also permanent art exhibits throughout the airport, changing exhibition spaces, and a dinosaur exhibition in Terminal 1. Given the variety of services on offer, Toronto Airport is a destination in its own right, and a great gateway to the Canadian city and its surrounding area.
