Cheap flights to Miami

Time it right and your trip to the Magic City needn’t cost an arm and a leg.

When to book flights to Miami

While cheap flights to Miami can be hard to come by during high season, on the off-season you may just clinch a deal. Located on the sunny southern tip of Florida, Miami is most popular during the winter months, when the blistering summer heat reduces to a balmy 20 degrees. Summertime can be much hotter, but brings with it regular rains to take the edge off. Perfect, if you don’t mind a little wet weather to go with your summer cocktail.

How to get around Miami

After a long flight, the last thing anybody wants to worry about it how to get around. Luckily, Miami International is only eight miles from the city centre, a direct drive along Route 112 (also known as the Airport Expressway). Regular shuttles run this route, but renting a car in Miami is also very affordable. Furthermore, this can add an extra dimension to your getaway, giving you the chance to explore the surrounding area.

Once in the city itself, settled in and freshened up, the Miami trolley is a good way of getting about. It travels to all the main sights such as Marlins Park, Biscayne Bay and the up-and-coming Allapattah, a neighbourhood packed with trendy markets. Presuming the weather’s playing nice, a water taxi service also makes a pleasant day trip between points of interest along Biscayne Bay.

Things you mustn’t miss in Miami

When one imagines Miami, one tends to picture white sand beaches, trendy nightclubs, glorious sunshine and magnificent Art Deco architecture. Not to mention the glitterati parading beachside promenades.

For something a bit off the beaten track though, head to the outskirts of Little Havana to discover a secret gem of an outdoor hangout called El Fresco. Packed with street art, pop up food stalls and a stage, this is one place most of the locals don’t even know about.

Otherwise, for a little peace and quiet, head to Wat Buddharangsi, a Buddhist temple offering a piece of uncharacteristic respite and mindfulness away from the glitz and glamour of Miami beach.

Tips for travelling in Miami

While visitors to Miami needn’t worry about obtaining a visa, it is required to complete an electronic system for travel authorisation (ESTA). This short questionnaire is similar to a visa waiver form, is valid for two years (or until your passport expires) and costs 14 USD. If you want to get your money’s worth, you’d better plan that next trip quickly!

How to survive the flight to Miami?
If you’re not prepared, air travel can be tough. But don’t hit the panic button just yet. Follow these tips and tricks for a pain-free start to your time in Miami.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Flying can be a cruisy experience if you’ve got all the right things. Firstly, you’ll want a few basic toiletry items, such as lip balm and hand cream, a spare set of clothes and a good book. Secondly, leave space in your carry-on bag for your electronic devices, chargers, your medications and maybe a comfy neck pillow too. Last, but definitely not least, remember to bring your passport, travel documents and your bank cards.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of prohibited items can differ between airlines, the general rule of thumb is avoid carrying anything sharp, flammable or explosive. This includes things like screwdrivers, pocket knives, aerosol cans and flares. Sporting equipment like hockey sticks, and items that could harm other people, such as firearms and ammunition, are also banned from the cabin.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The key to a comfortable flight is as simple as your choice of clothes. Prepare yourself for varying temperatures by layering up. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin begins to cool down. Shoes like flip flops and heels are best left in your checked suitcase. Instead, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like slip-ons. Your feet will thank you for it.
  • Most of us have heard about deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by reduced mobility or inactivity. There’s plenty you can do to lower your risk. Wear compression socks, drink plenty of water and get your legs and feet moving. Wander around the cabin or perform exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Miami?
Being organised before you get to the airport will make your trip to Miami a piece of cake. We’ve compiled some top tips for a stress-free journey through security:

  • Security personnel first need to check that you have a valid passport and travel documents before anything else. Keep them within easy reach.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your jacket, belt, keys and other small items, like coins, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process faster by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll need to unplug from technology. Your phone, laptop and any other electronics must also be sent through the scanner.
  • Remove all liquids and gels from your carry-on bag. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray scanner separately. Each product should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one litre), clear zip-close bag.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you a few precious minutes. Hiking or heavy-style boots are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Lightweight sneakers usually aren’t.
  • Sharp or pointed items are not allowed in the cabin. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them safely away in your checked luggage.
