When I was in the USA recently, I wanted to change my flight home. I looked at AA.com for return flights from the USA to Belize to get an idea of what was available. Flights booked within a week in advance were all under $350usd return. So, there must be something to booking very late. I know this wouldn't work for many people, but I was stunned by the low fare. I should also thank AA, who only charged me $21 for changing my ticket home.

You got very lucky. Normally, AA charges a minimum of $150 to change a ticket + any difference in fare.

I read an article the other day stating that fares to Belize City from Canada had dropped to just over $600 (round trip), so it's quite strange that fares are so high from the US. confused

If you have more time than money, the cheapest way to get here is to book a flight to Cancun.(locals do this all the time) Usually you can get these flight at a substantial discount. Then take the ADO bus to either Belize City, or Chetumal and then Water Taxi to AC.

More time and luggage hassle but big savings

Recently paid in August (USD)

$234.00 Toronto to Cancun one way (including Taxes)
$ 30.00 Ado bus to Chetumal.. Nice AC/ washrooms/ movies
$ 30.00 Water Taxi Chetumal to SP
$ 40.00 1 night Hotel in Cancun
__________
$334.00 2 days travel. bonus night in Cancun

Eww. I just looked at fares now. It must have been something to do with it being Labor Day weekend in the USA. Who knows. But the $21 dollar transfer fee on my ticket was a big and very welcome surprise for me especially as I had gotten my ticket on air miles.

And, BTW, I believe it's "AIR FARE"

To someone who delights in the correction of spelling.

Glad we decided as soon as we got back from AC when we were going and booked air fare. It is now $100-200.00 depending on airlines. We are trying Delta this trip through Atlanta.

Re: AIR FAIR - 09/23/11 04:08 PM

need proof what city flying from & dates or saving that much by booking way in advance

Re: AIR FAIR - 09/23/11 05:17 PM

It is hit or miss with airfares these days. Have to keep checking and when you see a price that is reasonable, purchase immediately. Gone are the days of rules about advance purchase prices, and rhyme or reason to the fares. If you have time, check daily and perhaps you will catch a sale. Must buy immediately when you see a good price as they vanish quite rapidly.

Gosh, I "guess" that airfare with AA might be good for these times, but it is so much more expensive than I ever paid in the past.. guess those days are gone, for now.

BCB, that is not a typical travel search engine and you will get NO spam.I guarandamntee it. Impossible. You cannot buy on that site either. Take the time & read what they are all about, history, etc. (and likely tyou paid way too much for that Nov trip wink )

Clover, just used it again for an upcoming adventure and a recently concluded one smile

We are flying Delta from Knoxville through Atlanta to Belize City. here is a link to flights today on their site: http://www.delta.com/booking/findFlights.do#top
$940.35 including tax. We paid 780.00 with tax. So between 100-200 like I stated. Has worked out for us every time to book as far in advance as we can. Only additional thing we add is trip insurance, just in case....

Re: AIR FAIR - 09/29/11 10:38 PM

Got an alert this AM for 408R/T LAX to BZE. Very few restrictions. By the time I could confirm the dates we wanted to travel, it was already up $200. I kept trying to get back to that link because I couldn't even get close on AA. Finally found it back on Orbitz and so booked. I am thrilled with 516 including taxes from LAX to BZE.

Re: AIR FAIR - 09/30/11 12:45 AM

Here's a kick in the teeth. Two weeks ago AA was $711 incl taxes-from MSP. Yesterday it went down to $545 incl tax. I needed 5 tickets, but didn't have 1 birthdate, which AA requires to book. By the time I got the Bday(2 hours),it had jumped $160 per ticket.
