TUI’s route to Orlando Melbourne Airport just gets cheaper and cheaper. I’ve seen some mega bargains on this route over the past few months, and these flights I’ve spotted takes that to the next level. The flights work out at just £179 per person for adults and £97 for children, with availability from Gatwick, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham. Plus, given there are plenty of pretty impressive hotel-only offers right now, this could make for a cheaper-than-usual trip stateside.
Traditionally, those heading to the dizzying lights of international drive, theme park land or private villas in Kissimmee jump on flights to Orlando International. TUIs route, however, flies into a much smaller airport slightly further away – Orlando Melbourne. Whilst Melbourne is about 70km from the hotspots of Orlando, it is often actually quicker to reach. Orlando International is a HUGE airport with lengthy queues so it can regularly take as long as an hour to get through to land-side, Melbourne on the other hand is super small, with recent visitors sharing that from landing to car rental took less than 20 minutes.
Orlando at this time of year is still a balmy 25-35 degrees with little rain, so be sure to pack the sun cream. If you’ve not been before, Orlando boasts both 2 Universal and 5 Disney theme parks, a plethora of great restaurants, outlet shopping centres and a range of other attractions to keep you busy. Personally, I love that Orlando offers you the chance to blend relaxing around the pool one day with a crazy activity the next day, like seeing 14ft Alligators on a boat tour round the everglades or exploring Disney’s Epcot Theme Park.
These flights creep slightly into the new academic year so may not be ideal for families with kids, but if that doesn’t bother you, I’ve spotted a variety of availability at this price including (but not limited to):
- 30th August / Gatwick / 14 nights
- 6th September / Manchester / 11 nights
- 1st September / Birmingham / 14 nights
- 7th September / Bristol / 7 nights
If you can’t make the available dates work (by clicking on the link below), I’d keep a close eye on this route with TUI, as they may well add future dates to this offer in the coming weeks and months.
Flights include a standard hand luggage case but you can add on small or large checked luggage at checkout.
