Chicago to Miami Flights: Tips on Securing the Lowest Fare

Time is money, the proverb sits aptly when it comes to booking a cheap flight from CHI to Miami. Here are a few tips, all based on time only.

1. Go for offseason ticketing

Every destination has three tourism seasons: High season, low season and shoulder season. Weather-wise, June through August (summer) is the high season, September through February is the low season, while March to May is the shoulder season. If you are looking for the cheapest flight and hotel rental, plan your Miami holiday between September and February. There is a strong possibility of you getting a business class flight ticket at the cost of a premium economy flight ticket. However, delaying your vacation until March and April means getting the best of both worlds – affordable fares and a great season to explore Miami’s top attractions.

2. Go for a weekday flight tickets

Flying between Monday to Wednesday or to an extent on Thursday can be  more economical than flying on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Firday is the most expensive day to travel to Miami from Chicago. Miami is a popular weekend destination, and attracts tourists not from Chicago but from across the globe.

3. Go for the best time

An airline ticket with an early morning flight between 5 AM to 7 AM is likely to come at a lower price than with flights departing later on a day. The difference in fare could be between $30 and $80 per ticket. The reason is obvious. Not many travelers wish to sacrifice their sleep. But it pays off in two ways – first it comes lighter on your wallet, and second you save time in commuting to your airport in Chicago due to little to no traffic in the morning hours.

4. Avoid Clashing your Dates with Events/Festivals
