If you want to escape the winter of the UK, book your flights to Miami for between January and April. The sun averages at around 20°C and is blessed with blue skies. Rainfall is common during late summer and early autumn but that doesn’t ruin what Miami has to offer. March hosts a fantastic festival which everyone gets involved with and offers a fun-packed visit, however the price of flights to Miami then will be more costly, so book your flight tickets well in advance to guarantee a cheaper price.
The off season in Miami is around June, July and August as the weather is extremely hot but with high chances of rain everyday. That said, cheap flights to Miami and great savings on flight tickets can be found due to the low demand during this time of year.

There are numerous airlines that operate flights to Miami, such as Air Canada, Air France or Virgin Atlantic just to name a few. Iberia and British Airways also offer flights to Miami although not as regular or competitively as the others. Make sure to research your baggage allowances and see if there are any extra fees for checked in luggage as this is normally where certain airlines add on extra costs. Some airlines do offer complimentary food and drinks onboard though which compensates slightly for the overall costs involved.
Miami International airport is only 13km away from downtown Miami meaning transport isn’t a major issue. The best option is to take advantage of the free, fixed-rail system which offers transport to most of the popular destinations of Miami. If you’d like to explore further than the typical downtown Miami, you can pay a couple of dollars for the train that operates routes expanding further than just the centre. Another option is to get a bus, it’s only $2 and can take you to all of the popular stops downtown. Both options are regular and great choices for reaching the centre of Miami. Also for an average of around $10 you can jump in a taxi, but as you could use the rail system for free this seems unnecessary.
