Flights to Belize
Need to get away and warm up but not sure how to get there? We have good news. As we approach the start of 2017, taking that much needed Belize vacation has never been easier.  Just this year, we have seen new direct flights open up to Belize City from Toronto, Denver and Houston. American Airlines have just introduced a new schedule for flights from the UK, allowing guests coming from London Heathrow to arrive in Belize on the same day. This is all very exciting news for travellers thinking about escaping to Belize in the middle of a cold and long winter or at anytime of the year. There’s so much to do there now...even in the summer! 

In this post, we explore the best options to book flights and how to find the best fares possible so you can get there even on a budget. Although, we don't book fares for our guests, we are more than happy to provide assistance in finding flights to Belize for your dates of interest. 

Start with a Flight Research Tool

We suggest using Google Flights to help you find the best deals and routes for air travel. For a bit of a techy background -  Google purchased ITA in 2011. This is the company that powers airline comparison shopping for sites like Travelocity, Priceline, and Expedia.  So you can be comfortable knowing that your Google Flight search will likely pull up all the same results as other flight search engines. Google Flights search function is fast as well. There are some other great features on Google Flights such as the ‘Date Tip’ bar. This will tell you that by traveling on different dates (usually a 1 or 2 earlier or later) you could get a better airfare. The ‘Track Price’ function allows you to receive emails with price changes and travel tips for the route you have in mind.

Book Directly with the Airline

Once you have found the flight to Belize that works for you, you will be given options on how to book at Google Flights.  At this point, we suggest booking directly online with the airline. By booking directly with the airline you will eliminate paying any service fees that you may possibly encounter with other online travel agents.
