I'd fly to NYC...... Get the amtrack to niagra, stay in downtown toronto, catch a blue jays game whilst having lunch at the hard rock and stay in a motel rather than a hotel..... 1/3rd the cost before flying back out of toronto. That said... Its been 18 years since i was last there so no doubt a lot has changed...... But chips, gravy and cheese is still a delacy i expect.

You had me, right up until the chips, gravy and cheese.
Tbf, hotels are easy but, some cheap flights would be useful.

I've just booked via Air Transat - it would have been reasonable if they hadn't charged me £80 for luggage (i'm going for a week so had no choice). I couldn't find anything better going direct and going via somewhere else wasn't cheap enough to make it worthwhile. I'll sort out hotels later but as you say they are pretty easy.

I went with Air Canada Rouge to/from Manchester. Transport from airport to downtown Toronto is cheap and regular (approx. £7 by train, 20mins and £2.50 bus/subway, 1hr). The ground is a 30mins or so walk from the centre west along King Street - there is also a tram that stops right outside the ground. For a pre (and/or post) match beer with the friendly locals, walk down Atlantic Ave (just east of the ground) from King St West , turn left on to Liberty St and walk till you get to the 3 Brewers pub.

Single journeys on the bus/subway/tram system cost CAD3.25 (approx. £2.50) and allow multiple hop ons and offs for (I think) 2hrs from 1st scanning in. The city (and transport system) felt safe even late at night.

We've booked from Leeds to Toronto via Amsterdam with KLM (although it was cheaper to book through Virgin Atlantic). The connections are actually pretty reasonable.

go on then what do you class as reasonable?






“The bond between the players is something I’ve never had with any other club. Everyone comes into one and we’re all one group. Whenever we get a new signing, everyone just embraces the culture. It’s what I love about this club and I just can’t wait for the journey ahead.”

If you're happy to do connection flights ,you're easily pleased and doing it for the sake of it.

I think on the way there it's 50-60 mins. Can't remember on the way back. Considering that it'll take me about that to get to Manchester, vs flying from my back yard, that's not bad n my view.

The few hundred quid cheaper is more than worth it as well.
