I need to book a last minute ticket departing on July 1 2015 from Toronto to Paris. Are there any "secret" sources or other "ways" to get a ticket for less than $700 CDN?

    Does it have to be Paris? The more flexible you are (eg something in Western Europe with cheap onward flights), the more hope you have! – Gagravarr Jun 17 '15 at 18:28

    Expedia is giving $759 one way. Does that work for you? – DJClayworth Jun 17 '15 at 20:59

    @verve If you're willing to book (for the sake of an argument) YYZ to DUB as one flight, then DUB to Paris as a second (likely on a LCC), it could turn out to be cheaper. Flight to Barcelona then TGV to Paris is another. Hence the query - do you have to fly to Paris, or are you flexible as long as you get to Paris eventually? – Gagravarr Jun 18 '15 at 11:20

Let me introduce you to Skyscanner.

Skyscanner searches a vast array of airlines and air travel websites, to obtain the lowest fares publicly available.

For your proposed one-way trip leaving Toronto on July 1 and going to Paris, it comes up with $585 on Condor ($713 CAD at today's exchange rate) as the cheapest flight, YYZ-FRA-CDG. If you leave late the previous night instead, you can get a nonstop flight for $590 $629 (you were too slow and missed it).

I think you will find it quite difficult to do better than that.
