Where to go with 100,000 Aeroplan Points during March Break?

To the point For a March Break getaway, here are our suggestions for a few family trips for 100,000 Aeroplan points or less.

Conditions

Of course, these itineraries are subject to the travel restrictions of Canada, the United States and other countries.

Therefore, we assume that :

Note that March Break is on different dates for many students! A student from :

  • Charlevoix, Montreal or Rouyn-Noranda has its march break from February 27 to March 05, 2022
  • Laval, Quebec or Bas-St-Laurent has its march break from March 06 to March 12, 2022

We have therefore divided the results according to these 2 weeks.

Hurry up and make a reservation! The availability and the cost in points fluctuate very quickly!

In addition, these scenarios have been built with the following criterias:

  • Non-stop flights as much as possible (to avoid missed stops due to bad weather and minimize travel time)
  • Cost of 100,000 Aeroplan points or less
  • Flight in economy class
  • The result has a value of 2 cents or more per Aeroplan point, at the time of publication

The examples are for a family of 2 adults and 2 children.

Also, the searches were done with a profile linked to an Aeroplan credit card. This allows you to get a preferred fare.

100,000 Aeroplan points can be earned with Aeroplan credit cards. One of the best is the TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card, especially since the annual fee is waived for the first year (check out the current offer).

To speed up the earnings, each person in the couple can apply for one. Then simply link Aeroplan points through family sharing.
