How to Plan a Layover in Vancouver for Cheap (San Francisco to Montreal)?

Jump to last reply

Anybody who have worked in travel agencies or have extensive experience booking flights in North America, can you help me out?

I am trying to find the cheapest way to go from San Francisco (Or any other major California city) to Montreal via Vancouver in May. I was once told that if I have a ticket west coast-east coast or vice versa that goes through Vancouver, I can simply just change my layover from whatever amount of time (1h, 3h, 7h, whatever) to how ever many amount of days (like a week or two weeks later) without additional costs. I have done that once 4 years ago but don’t know if I can still do that or with which airline.

I was also wondering, if I have a flight ticket west coast to east coast with a layover any other city (like Chicago, Denver, Dallas, Atlanta, whatever), I can have it go through Vancouver either for free or for a very small fee.

Anybody knows anything about this? With who I can do this? How?

I have tried using my usual tools (Skyscanner and Google Flights but doing a multi-city purchase is not the solution, it drives the costs up like crazy).
