When to fly to India

Deciding on the best time to take cheap flights to India depends on where you intend to go. India is such a vast country and has such a range of climates that almost every season has its peak time and off-peak time.

Peak Season:
Most travellers arrive on cheap flights to India between September (when it stops raining in many parts of India, but not in the southern part of India where there are winter monsoons) and March. December and January can be very cold. In the south of India, winter weather is still warm although it may get chilly at night.

Off Season:
Temperatures between April and August are very high, sometimes unbearable. Savvy travellers head to the hill stations where it is cooler. The monsoons last from June through September.

Overview

Travellers taking cheap flights to India will discover a country that almost defies description. The world’s second-most populous country is a fascinating blend of contrasts, traditions, legends and mystery. Home to more than one billion people, and the birthplace of four world religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism), there are about 20 languages spoken. It’s the world’s seventh-largest country by area, extending from the Himalayas in the north to the tropical beaches of the south. Its 27 Unesco World Heritage sites include the Taj Mahal, one of the new seven wonders of the world, Agra Fort and Humayun’s Tomb. You would need a lifetime to experience all that the country has to offer. Luckily, in India, it is said, they treat their guests as they welcome their gods. 

Its festivals and celebrations are riots of colour and noise. Entire communities celebrate festivals such as Diwali, Holi, Id, Christmas or Mahaveer Jayanthi. Getting around between Indian’s largest cities – Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru – and smallest towns has never been easier.

How long is the flight to India from Canada?

Direct flights from Toronto to New Delhi have a flight time of 13h 55m. There are also a number of indirect flights into India from Canada, which have varying durations based on the number of stopovers and the length of wait times. Keep in mind that while India flight deals might have lower fares, travel time could increase substantially. Multiple stop flights are commonly known to have 22h 30m to 27h 40m flight times.

What cities offer direct flights to India from Canada?

Direct flights to India from Canada are available but limited. Toronto offers nonstop service to New Delhi and Mumbai. Direct flights are also available out of Vancouver, and there are indirect routes from both cities, as well. Calgary, Montreal, and Ottawa also provide service to various cities in India. Air Canada is the primary provider of flights from Canada to India, but flights are also available from American Airlines, Air India, and United.

What is the best way to travel around India?

Trans are easily the best option for travel in India. They are accessible, easy to use, and offer affordable pricing compared to other transit options. Bus travel is decent for short distances or when you want to visit a city that does not have a train station. Some bus lines are not comfortable while others have luxury amenities like air conditioning. You can find affordable taxi service if you are willing to bargain for the price. Rickshaws and motorbikes are also available for hire and can be flagged down from just about anywhere.

What are some things to do in India?

India is a majestic country, home to attractions like the Taj Mahal and man-made temples carved right out of the mountains. The Ajanta Caves are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offering 29 hand-carved chambers crafted by Buddhist monks around 2AD to 6BC. Bandipur National Park is one of the best managed in the country and home to plenty of activities and wildlife to observe. Amber Fort is outside of Jaipur, offering a historic look at Hindu architecture and Muslim ornamentation. The Ancient Step Walls and the City Palace in Jaipur are also worth a visit.

Do I need a passport to fly to India from Canada?

Canadian citizens traveling to India will be required to present their valid Canadian passport upon arrival at the airport customs station. All passports must not expire for at least six months from the time you enter the country. There must also be two blank pages available for immigration officials. Tourism, work, and student visas are all required for travel to India, and you must obtain this visa before you arrive in the country otherwise you could be refused entry or held for deportation. E-tourist visas are available for stays of less than 60 days when entering through designated airports.

India climate

India is a big country and the climate can vary depending on where you are. Winters are dry and cool and last from December through February. Summer is still dry, but warms up quite a bit. The southwest monsoon season is from June through September; the northeast monsoon season lasts from October to November.

Getting around India

One of the best and most popular ways of getting around India is by air. Air India has a comprehensive network, and low-cost airlines have become very popular with Indians and tourists alike. 

India has the second-largest rail network in the world and moves more than 15 million people each day. Bus services augment rail services to reach the most remote parts of India. 

It’s more usual to rent a car and a driver than it is to rent a car. Taxis are available at inexpensive, daily rates. 

In the cities, there are good public transportation networks – buses, trains, and metro (Kolkata for example). Auto-rickshaw is another good way of getting around. They are cheaper than taxis and are able to nip through congested city streets. Agree a price before your journey starts. Cheaper still – but slower – is the cycle rickshaw.
