Four Tips for Saving on Airfare on Your Next Trip to Myrtle Beach
Flying to Myrtle Beach this year? You’re not alone, plenty of people head to Myrtle Beach every year by air—it’s often just as convenient, and with the newly expanded Myrtle Beach International Airport, the experience is smoother than ever. And if you shop carefully, the prices can be pretty affordable, as well.
Here are a few of our best tips for saving when booking flights to beautiful Myrtle Beach:
1. Buy tickets early
Airline fares change at the blink of an eye every day. That being said, it is imperative to book flights in advance to avoid fares increasing. It definitely pays to plan ahead. Checking fares continuously can be a pain, but proves to be worth it in the long haul when saving a buck or two.
2. Don’t shy away from discount airlines
All airlines are different, from the onboard snacks to the way they treat their customers. Just because one airline may not have a television behind every seat doesn’t mean it’s not worth flying with. Discount airlines, such as Spirit Airlines, JetBlue and WestJet often have cheap flights, and the service, especially with such short flights, is often just as good. You may also have good luck using websites that automatically find deals. Kayak and Orbitz are prime competitive websites that help you find the best deals on flights.
3. Use an air miles card for regular expenses to rack up miles
Ever heard of racking up miles on a credit card? Now is the time to research credit card providers and the benefits they provide. Many travelers get mileage cards hooked to their favorite airlines’ mileage programs and charge monthly bills, such as grocery and phone bills, just so they can rack up miles to use on their annual trip to Myrtle Beach. It’s a great way to go, just remember to pay the bill off every month so you don’t rack up interest along with the miles!
4. Consider flying out of a different airport
Do your research—traveling an hour further to the next airport could save you significant cash. Just pay careful attention to the extra cost of getting to that airport—and don’t forget to consider the difference in parking fees if you’re going to end up parking at the airport.
