Peak season

The United States of America, USA for short, sprawls across the middle of North America, and is composed of 50 states. First time travellers arriving on flights to the USA have a huge choice of fascinating destinations to choose from in this vast nation. From breathtaking natural wonders, to mammoth and fascinating man made cities of towering steel and glass. Generally the peak tourist season runs from May to September, and the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn are the most picturesque months to visit the east and west coasts. The best time to visit really depends on where in the USA you are going and what you want to see. For travel during the shoulder seasons book at least a month in advance and for the high season book at least six months in advance. Holidays and annual events are major reasons for many visitors to arrive on flights to the USA, so check city events calendars before booking flight tickets.

 


Off season

Cheap flights to the USA can always be found in the winter. Flight ticket prices and temperatures drop markedly in the winter months in the northern states, with the exception of ski resorts. Most attractions in the larger cities remain open all year round but the smaller coastal towns and seasonal destinations close during the winter.

Which airlines operate flights to the USA?

The best city for flights to the USA from Australia is Los Angeles. This is a popular flight route and with several airlines competing for direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane you should have plenty of options for cheap flights to the USA. Popular carriers include Virgin Australia, Qantas, United and Delta, or consider airlines that offer a stopover in San Francisco such as China Southern and American Airlines. Once in Los Angeles, there are many low-cost domestic airlines, including no-frills leaders Southwest, JetBlue and Spirit Airlines, to fly you anywhere in any state.

 

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Most major cities in the USA have reliable public transport options to transfer you to the city centres. For example, LAX has a shuttle bus ‘G’ to the Metro Green Line and JFK has the AirTrain connecting to the New York subway. Buses and taxis are also plentiful if you don’t want to negotiate traffic. However, in some cities hiring a car may be the quickest and convenient option to get around especially if you plan on doing a road trip. You’ll find all the major car rental agencies at most US airports, including Budget, Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty.
