Cheap flight from Miami to Orlando

Flying from UK to Miami in Feb and trying to find a cheap fare either return, or one way from Miami to Orlando. Fares are not about $220 each, do you have any suggestions for cheaper fares. Do you have any low cost airlines as we do in the UK who have some really low prices?

One way fares tend to be expensive. Why not drive. It's about 3 or 4 hours. We don't have a Ryan Air like thing between those two cities.

You can try or which allow you to bid on tickets.

Try Orbitz, they often have low web fares that are only available through them.

Fares between Miami and Orlando are usually quite high, which is why most people drive. When my father was no longer comfortable driving long distances, he took Amtrak, and that was such a bad experience that he flew back even though the ticket was more than $125 one way and of course he lost the other half of his round trip Amtrak ticket.

It's a long, boring drive (four hours) and the Turnpike (faster than I-95) will cost about $11, but you can probably get a cheap rental. I agree you should try Priceline, but if you've never used it before, go to to learn about bidding, etc.

I fly to Orlando from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami fairly often and can usually find a round trip (return) fare for $125-$150. Try to see what is available. I believe Southwest flies to Orlando from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami but I'm not sure. I usually fly Delta. Try to check.

Southwest looks like they have a 14-day advance-purchase one-way fare of $57.00. This might go up or down depending on the particular day you're traveling.

Oh, one other thing on that Southwest fare--it's Ft. Lauderdale to Orlando, not Miami to Orlando.

Sorry to be cluttering this up with multiple posts. That $57.00 fare doesn't include some taxes and fees, so it's likely to be closer to $70.00.

Southwest offers some round-trip tickets from $78-$88, plus taxes and fees. (It's $78 if you fly Tues/Weds/Saturday, $88 if you fly the other days.) With taxes and fees and flying on Tues/Weds/Saturday, the round-trip ticket would be $90.00.

Okay, I'm done. Hope this helps...
