We've collated the most frequently asked questions we receive ahead of customers booking their holiday to Florida. If you cannot find the answer to your question please call us or send an email to [email protected]
Q. When is the cheapest time to go to Florida?
Florida is a year round destination. On average it is the warmest state in the US - they don't call it the Sunshine State for nothing! As such it is a very popular destination at all times of the year. Attractions and Theme Parks are open all year round to cater for demand.
If you want to find a cheap flight to Florida the best time to look is outside of school holidays that means avoiding travelling at the busiest times. These are Christmas, Easter Time and the school summer holidays spanning mid - June to mid - August.
One of the best times to fly cheaply would be late May or early June - just before school holidays start. However, be sure to avoid travel in and around Memorial Day as you may find prices are slightly higher at this time. You may also be able to grab a cheap flight to Florida in the summertime for yourself at the end of August, just before the new school year starts.
You'll find the Theme parks and attraction in Orlando quieten down from around early September up to Thanksgiving. So if you're able to be flexible you can take advantage of both a cheap flight to Florida as well as less tourists to deal with once you're there! Another quiet period is early Feb through to early May (excluding Easter Time).
Another consideration you may want to make before looking for your cheap flight is average weather conditions. As the weather can be changeable at certain times of the year it's always best to check this before you travel.
The further you can book your Florida flight in advance the better. Leaving it until the last minute can often mean you pay more - so be prepared!
Q. What is the minimum deposit I can put on a holiday?
You can book most of our holidays with a deposit of just £99 per person. The amount required to book the Florida holiday you have selected will be confirmed to you once you add it to your basket as some airlines do not allow a deposit payment and full payment must be made at the time of booking.
If you are able to book your holiday with a deposit your full balance will be due for payment 14 weeks prior to departure.
It's that simple, all we ask is that your balance is paid on, or before the due date.
Q. Do you need a passport to visit Florida?
All British citizens must have a valid 10 year machine readable British Passport to enter Florida. Passport requirements for Florida
Q. Do you need a VISA for Florida?
All passengers entering the USA on the Visa Waiver Programme will be required to hold a machine readable passport (the newer red passports). This also includes passengers who only intend to transit the USA en route to another country. VISA requirements for Florida
Q. Which Airline gives you the most legroom?
An often asked question from our customers. It all depends on aircraft type as to the amount of legroom available.
Currently Thomson offers the most leg room - a whopping 33" in economy! We find that most customers are surprised when we advise this as it is expected that certain other airlines would provide more.
Q. Which Florida Airport - Orlando or Sandford?
To the Florida newbie finding out there are two airports in Orlando Trying to understand which airport to fly to can be confusing to say the least!
In a nutshell Orlando International airport is the nearest airport to the Orlando resort areas, and all scheduled flights land there, however despite this flying into Sanford International on a charter flight can often mean you arrive at your accommodation earlier as the customs and immigration process take less time at Sanford.

If you opted to pay a deposit for your booking your full holiday balance will be due for payment 14 weeks prior to departure and we will send you a reminder by email approximately one week before the due date.
Q. When will my travel documents arrive?
Travel documents are issued approximately 2 - 3 weeks prior to departure. These are mostly sent by email although some operators still issue them by post.
