Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Amy G. of Portland, OR, who says:

“The currently strong US dollar presents an opportunity for US residents who live within driving/train range of Canada to save significantly on Europe and other international airfares. I’ve been pricing trips for fun—and am seeing tickets prices often halved or more when I price them out of Canada. It’s worth checking out, especially for groups of three or more traveling together. The savings really offset the extra travel required. And I’m looking at it as an add-on vacation to explore a Canadian city. :) Canadians have done this for years. Now it’s our turn!”

A really good tip—and I’ve mentioned before, Canada is a great value right now so an add-on vacation is another great idea. Thanks, Amy!

    Not only do Americans enjoy cheaper international flights out of Canada, but Canada itself is a great bargain right now. What’s better than sitting down to a cup of coffee and danish, handing over $20 US, and getting $22 Canadian in change?

    Great tip! I just got a great non-stop flight booked from Toronto (YYZ) to Buenos Aires (EZE), for just a third of the price of any other nonstops from the East coast. I have to do a positioning flight, but it is an inexpensive, easy nonstop from ATL. And Toronto is a great city to visit, so we’re going a day early to play!
