Just thought I'd share a little info. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba and was curious to see if there would be any price difference if I drove to Grand Forks and flew from there for my trip. Its a 2 and a half hour drive to Grand Forks. I was pleasently surprised to see that the savings are well worth the trip. On average savings were between 500-800 dollars. Cost to drive there and back would be $50 and cost for parking is $35. For example Royal Suites was $3600 from Winnipeg $2900 from Grand Forks. GBP $3000 from Winnipeg $ 2400 from Grand Forks. Secrets Capri $4200 from Winnipeg and $3600 from Grand Forks.
