Cheap Miami Flights

Plan your trip during the weekday

As you’ll find once you start browsing booking sites, cheap flights to Miami are easier found for weekday travel versus weekend travel. That’s because there’s not as much demand for seats, so airlines adjust the prices a bit to make weekday travel more attractive. If you can be flexible, try flying out on a Monday or Tuesday and returning on a Wednesday or Thursday.

Consider flying into Ft. Lauderdale

Yes, it sounds strange to fly into a different city if you really want to get to Miami, but hear us out. Three low-priced providers, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines and JetBlue, don’t offer cheap flights to Miami, but instead offer budget service in and out of Ft. Lauderdale, located about 45 minutes to the north. That’s not too far a distance if you plan to rent a car, and there is indeed public transit that can get you from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami, though it will take a few hours and several transfers.
