Buying Tickets in Canada Instead of US Due to Exchange Rate?

Jump to last reply

DH and I are planning a trip to Europe in the fall and I'm wondering if it is advantageous for him to buy our tickets in $CDN when he goes to visit family there soon to take advantage of the very favorable exchange rate. The itinerary we're considering is Denver-Toronto-Athens (on Air Canada) and returning Rome-Frankfurt-Denver (on Lufthansa.) I understand that the airlines know where you're browsing from, so if he's using an Canadian ISP, he should be OK to get Canadian prices and use his Canadian credit card to pay. Has anyone ever done something like this? Would there be any prohibition against this? At the moment, $1US=$1.45CDN. That could make a considerable difference in final price, but what am I missing here? Thanks.
