Tips On Booking Your Belize Flights:

Surely we’re all familiar with the “Book Tuesday 3pm for the best flight deal” myth, and though for a while this did seem to have some science and truth behind it, flying to Belize has never been easier or cheaper. The increased number of travelers coming to, or through Belize has prompted an increase in routes and a dip in prices.

Still, some rules of thumb to follow are to book in advance, while there are some flash sales on tickets it might not be so wise to count on them. Some very savvy travelers suggest 60-days in advance when flying internationally for the most reasonable savings unless of course, you’re planning to fly high traffic dates.

Back to the Tuesday myth: most low airfares seem to appear between Sunday night and Monday night. When people book those fares, they have the next  24 hours to finalize the purchase. At midnight Tuesday, all the discount fares that weren’t purchased flood back into the airline’s computer systems. This phenomenon Usually makes Wednesday 1am the best time to buy. (note: be mindful of the airline’s home base time zone)

Talk to the agents. Many times airline computer systems are set up with a modeling system that compares flight frequency and fares with previous years making it somewhat impossible to get the VERY BEST deal on a flight booking online. Talking to a real person, however, can yield quite a different result, agents are familiar with the best times, routes and airlines which to book from making them your actual best bet for savings.

Booking flights for low season travel to Belize will see the savings stack up. In addition to many hotels and resorts having discounted prices during the summer months, airlines also have turned up the discount dial which will always favor the consumer, ie. you.

Furthermore, don’t be afraid to be Flexible with dates and times. Dawn, Lunch, dinner and overnight flights tend to be somewhat cheaper due to people being less willing to initiate travel at these times.

For those willing to go deeper and save even more consider connecting flights or big flight hubs. The direct flight in your mind might not be as frequently traveled as others making the price inch up some more. A connecting flight could put you on to more frequent and thus cheaper routes to your destination, if you’re not in a hurry this may be a good option to consider.

Flying to, and through a large airport (a travel hub) might lead you to some savings as well, the popularity of the hub makes flights cheaper and if crowds and layovers don’t bother you this could be an option for you!
