Peak Season:

California is blessed with pleasant weather most of the year, meaning the peak season is year-round. Flights to California can be expensive because of this, so make sure to book in advance to get the best savings on your flight tickets.

You’ll find cheap flights to California are extremely difficult to find around this time of year, as well and in June and August.

When is the best time to book a flight to California?

If you’re not flexible enough to plan that far ahead, aim for a minimum of 7 weeks before booking your flights to California. Take into consideration events like the Academy Awards when looking into flights to California as this will increase the price a lot. If you’re flying into Los Angeles try to sit on the right hand side of the plane to get spectacular views of the Hollywood sign, the L.A River and the San Gabriel mountains. Being flexible is the best way to secure a cheap flight to California.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Los Angeles International:

Downtown LA is located around 30km from LAX airport. The easiest and cheapest option is to get a free shuttle bus from the airport. Outside of arrivals you should take either shuttle G or C. C takes you to the Metro bus centre and from there you can either continue on your way to downtown LA or if you’re staying in Hollywood or Santa Monica, you can find means of transport from here.  You can also jump in a taxi if you want convenient and fast travel from the airport, however the price won’t be cheap and it is expected that you tip your driver. This is a good option if there are a few of you to split the fare.

San Francisco International:

The easiest and most convenient way to travel from the airport to the city is from the BART station. It’s located in the International Terminal, and you can take a free AirTrain from all terminals to the BART station. You will need to buy a ticket from the BAET station before you travel, or you can book in advance and exchange your voucher for the correct ticket, which is kind of like a debit card which you keep for your time in San Francisco. Another option is to get a taxi from outside of the airport, although this can be costly if you’re travelling alone. You can also take a shuttle or shared van from the airport, simply tell the driver where you want to go and he’ll add you to his route and tell you the price.
