Consider flying out of Cleveland.
For many of our readers that live in the Sarnia, Ont. area I am proposing another way to save on your flights.
I myself like to use Avios and Aeroplan points to fly free (see those pages) but when there is no availability you need to look elsewhere.
Most people in our area fly out of Detroit(1.5 hrs) or Toronto (2.5 hrs).
Many people say to fly out of Flint (1 hr) which is a small airport and you can find deals.
We flew out of Cleveland last March break and saved on “points used for flights” it was 60,000 Avios.
That same flight out of Detroit is 72,000 – 80,000 Avios depending on where you fly to.
If you don’t use airline points I have found Cleveland to have very attractive flight prices.
Just looking for our March break (we have a page for that too) I found it is very hard to get a round trip flight to Florida for under $300 right now.
Frontier Airlines flies out of Cleveland and offers some very good prices.
As an example if you leave the Sunday of March break (15th) you can get round trip flights to Florida for as low as $175.
It comes down to a money and convenience thing in the end, but if you are booking 4+ flights and saving $125 a flight that is about $500 saved.
That could easily pay for your rental car for a week, hotel for a few nights, or Disney passes!
Cleveland Hopkins Airport is smaller than Detroit Metro and about 2.5 hours farther drive – but it is an option.
