We are planning a vacation to Costa Rica and looking at flight deals. We have found a good deal via Skiplagged for our return flight to Salt Lake City. The ticket is from Costa Rica to Victoria with a layover in Salt Lake City. Price works best for us.

But will they ask for a Canadian visa when we board the flight in Costa Rica? If yes, we cannot go for this option as we don't have Canadian visas. Please suggest.

    Do you normally need a Canada visa? – Roddy of the Frozen Peas Jun 27 '18 at 5:00

    Watch for potential flight changes/cancellations. If the airline rebooks you on a different flight, you might end up in Canada on a direct. 'Hidden City' works, but don't expect the airline to be helpful if there is an issue. – Aganju Jun 27 '18 at 6:35
  • @Aganju has it right. This is a ticket from San Jose, Costa Rica to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. If there are issues, the airline can route you via Miami, Toronto, Vancouver, or anything it wants - it has no obligation to get you anywhere near Salt Lake City. – Jim MacKenzie Jun 27 '18 at 14:34
  • If you are American citizens, you're fine. Do you hold a different citizenship? – Azor Ahai Jun 27 '18 at 16:32
