If you need a dose of California sunshine to get you through the year, you're not alone. Right now, you can get a last-minute flight deal from Vancouver to Los Angeles and it's too cheap to pass up if you have extra vacation days you're looking to fill. Pack your bags because these flights are taking off as early as March and you won't want to miss out.
In B.C., we love our staycations, but sometimes we need a breath of fresh air and a change of pace. Sometimes we want to try a little Dunkin and cheat on our Timmies if you catch my drift.
Whether you want to visit Disneyland as an adult or eat your way through the foodie paradise that is Los Angeles, a trip to California is always a good idea.
If this deal is too last minute for you, then you're in luck because flights in September are even coming in at under $200 on certain dates.
There's more to discover in L.A. than just the traffic. Plus, your group of friends would probably have more fun on a trip to California than to Las Vegas, especially if they love movies.
From the thrill of the Jurrasic Park ride at Universal Studios to the buzz of Hollywood Boulevard, it's so fun to play tourist here.
L.A. is full of iconic sites and cool places to see that you'll recognize from your favourite flicks.
You can create an entire Los Angeles bucket list and hit up all your favourite spots from doughnut and taco shops to places like Venice Beach.

Here's How To Get The Deal
This trick is super simple because you can use Google Flights to find your last-minute deal.
We looked at flights from YVR to LAX and used their calendar tool to select the cheapest dates.
The best flight we found was a round trip, non-stop flight from Air Canada. It departs Tuesday, March 3 and the return flight was on Wednesday, March 18. That flight was $263.
There were other flights for cheaper in March, around $236, but they had a stopover.

Even Google knows that this is a radically low price for flights between the two west-coast hubs.
Their price gauging graph shows that this price is $232 cheaper than usual, or almost half off, for this last-minute escape to California.
