Hotwire Alternative Airport Tips
When available, always check alternative airports for the lowest Hotwire.com airfares.
Budget airlines use alternative airports, which brings the fares of all airlines at these down—and this means money in your pocket.
Some airports, such as Midway for Chicago, Hobby for Houston, and Oakland for San Francisco, may be just as convenient for you, while others, like Jacksonville for Orlando, work best with a rental car.
During peaks times like spring break, Jacksonville, FL gives excellent access to Orlando and Daytona Beach, as does Ontario, CA to Disneyland and Palm Springs.
From Jacksonville, you’ll have an easy Interstate drive to Orlando, or you can stop and explore the beaches of the Palm Coast or the natural springs of Ocala National Forest along the way, as well as the Kennedy Space Center.
Check these alternative airports
Check the following options in North America:
For New York City, LaGuardia Airport (LGA) is closer to Midtown Manhattan, but Newark (EWR) and JFK airports are often cheaper. Sometimes, the least expensive airport near NYC for your trip may be Long Island Airport (ISP), but you’ll need to weigh the pros and cons of time-consuming and additional cost transfers in this urban area.
Alternative airports work around the world. For example, London has four busy airports: well-known Gatwick (LGW) and Heathrow (LHR), but also Luton (LTN), and Stansted (STN).
