Washington to Miami Flights: Tips on Securing the Lowest Fare

Wait for the high season from December to May pass by. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Valentine Day, and Spring Break (2 weeks in March or April) trigger the demand for flights and hotels. Plan your Miami vacation between mid-May to July to get economical airfares and hotel rentals.  Though airfares drop in August and September further, do not risk delaying as rain and hurricane season is ahead. One way fares graph we plotted above doesn’t show any significant drop in the fares between in the season, but remember, it does play a bigger role. In August, temperature goes beyond 90°F (32.2°C), and it rains over 16 days a month. Most devastating hurricanes have always struck Miami during this time. Remember, Michael, Ivan, Jeanne, Dennis, Wilma, and Irma.

Miami attracts weekend vacationers from North America and beyond. From Monday to Thursday and even on Saturday and Sunday, airfares stay stable, but on Friday it shows an unexpected rise. It shouldn’t be unexpected however, considering weekends ahead, and visitors not willing to waste a single day to reach their favorite destination.
