Top tips for finding a cheap flight out of Miami (MIA)
Book in the Goldilocks Window
Though it seems counterintuitive, airfare typically becomes more expensive as departure dates get close, partly because business travelers often book at the last minute and airlines know their companies can afford higher fares.
That’s why we recommend booking in the Goldilocks Window: 1-3 months before a domestic flight or 2-8 months before an international trip. That’s the perfect window of not too close, not too far away, and the timeline when we’ve seen the most deals pop up.
That said, if you know you’ll be traveling during peak season, we recommend booking even further ahead from Miami International Airport. Start looking for flights during mid-summer for a winter holiday trip. Whatever you do, avoid booking less than a month out when flights are almost guaranteed to be more expensive.
Use the Greek Islands Trick
What is the Greek Islands Trick? It’s when you look at fares that aren’t exactly where you want to go but are close. So, rather than flying from Miami to Mykonos, you fly from Miami to London, then book a separate flight to Mykonos. The reason? It could be significantly cheaper to add this extra step. A flight from Miami to Mykonos with a stop in London might be $1,500 roundtrip, whereas you can often find fares from Miami to London for under $500; from there, it’s often less than $200 roundtrip to Mykonos on a low-cost airline.
Of course, it doesn’t work only for the Greek Islands. Miami is a big airport with flights to numerous international destinations, so search where you can fly in the region (like Europe) for an affordable price. Then look for regional operators, which are often cheaper, for the shorter leg of the flight. You could even take a ferry or train for your second leg.
Search nearby—and not so nearby—airports
If you live in Miami, you’ve probably already searched for flights out of Fort Lauderdale. But if you have time to commute, it might make sense to look at West Palm Beach (PBI) or Ft. Myers (RSW). Miami is likely to have the best deals, but it doesn’t hurt to compare. Sometimes airlines drop prices out of smaller cities. For big international trips, you could even look at airports farther away, like across state lines.
If you live in Miami, it might sound strange to look for flights out of LA, NYC, or DC. But, sometimes, other cities have incredible deals. Like $63 from Atlanta to Chile roundtrip or $230 roundtrip to Paris from JFK. Look for a cheap domestic flight from Miami to Atlanta or NYC, and you’ve got yourself a deal.
Fly when it’s cheaper
Summer months and winter holidays are always peak seasons for travel around the country. But Miami is also a spring break hub, not to mention a snowbird destination. With high demand comes higher prices. Consider traveling during off season and shoulder season, the time between high and low travel times.
If you have to travel during peak season, try flying on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday, which are typically the cheapest days to fly. Unsurprisingly, Fridays and Sundays are the most expensive.
Set alerts for specific trips
Flight alerts are a simple way to stay updated on airfare changes. Once you set up an alert for your destination with a service like Google Flights, you’ll get emails when prices drop. Set up alerts months ahead of travel to have the best chance of finding a great deal.
Miami International Airport is a major hub for American Airlines and World Atlantic Airlines. The airport serves 155 cities nonstop, including a new route between London and Miami from Norse Atlantic Airways. Your best chance of cheap travel from Miami is booking somewhere with an airline that uses Miami as a hub, booking a direct flight, or setting your sights on Latin America, where Miami International Airport has dozens of flights.

How early should I arrive to Miami International Airport (MIA) before my flight?
How early you need to arrive for a flight depends on your departure time, the airport size, and whether you’re checking luggage, among other factors. Miami International Airport recommends arriving two hours before a domestic flight, three hours before an international flight. That’s a safe bet, but you could get away with arriving a little later if you only have a carry-on and have TSA PreCheck. On the other hand, during busy travel periods you might want to arrive even earlier.
How big is the airport, and where is your gate? Miami International Airport is pretty large and busy, and the airport itself recommends arriving 2-3 hours early.
Are you checked in? Checking in online can save significant time in line. But if you can’t check in online, make sure you get to the airport within an hour of your flight. Check with your airline about their check-in cutoff time. For most, it’s between 30-60 minutes of departure.
Are you checking luggage? Like with checking in, airlines have cutoff times for checking luggage. Check with your airline to be sure, but it’s usually 45-60 minutes before takeoff. If you want your luggage to travel with you, make sure you’re there before the cutoff.
How busy is the airport? On an average day, the security wait at Miami International Airport is about 11 minutes. But if you’re traveling around a holiday, during spring break, or on busier days like Friday and Sunday, it can be much longer. At these times, it’s better to err on the side of arriving early.
At the bare minimum, it’s wise to arrive at Miami International Airport at least one hour before your flight, but 1.5-2 hours is a safer bet on most days. During peak times, 3-4 hours in advance may be necessary.
