Been keeping an eye on prices as obviously this time of year prices go up. Just saw this price drop starting from mid August. Seats are going quick though, so you will really want to hurry up. They are generally for longer stays but are some at £249 for 2 weeks, which is still decent!

No prizes for guessing why Florida's so cheap.

Still, shockingly good bargain.

Great price, poor airline.

I love Florida been 4 times in last seven years. Can't wait to go again. I actually paid three times this price or flights five years ago. t's just a shame the pound is so weak at the minute.

I booked Florida flying out 31 August weeks ago for £309. It's cheap cause it coincides when the start of school for uk schools, so it's unlikely parents will pull out kids! Well that's what I think anyway

Wow, that stamina.

Completely wrong time of year to go to Florida. Americans who can get out. It's full of mad dogs and Englishmen.
Seriously: do Florida in March/April and go and see the real place, not the expensive theme parks. Car rental is cheap, fuel is cheap, driving easy and motels not too bad; there are some fabulous places to see in wonderful weather at that time of the year.

Mostly hurricanes have come September/October. They haven't had one since 2005. Of the last 20 (dating back to 1935) 3 were in August.

The "idiots" appear to have qualified their advice inc refs to "...postponing non-essential travel to the rest of Florida":
"Pregnant women are advised to postpone non-essential travel to this affected area within Miami-Dade until after pregnancy.
The risk in the rest of Florida is considered moderate based on their demonstrated ability to implement effective mosquito control measures. Pregnant women should consider postponing non-essential travel to the rest of Florida until after the pregnancy."

You are trying to correct me about which month is the peak month :P about a thousand sites say August. Also as I stated there has not been a hurricane in years.......................

but thanks for your 1 penny worth

I think the 21 and 28 day flights aren't going to be much good for most people, but the 14 day flights are a decent price - even if you have to add on an extra £80 for baggage. The end of August and early September is historically a cheap time to go to Florida, for various reasons - mainly because it's the start of the school year. You still get lots of families going, but mainly those with kids under 5. Be prepared for a noisy flight with lots of young kids grizzling!

I've posted quite a few good deals before for this time of year and mainly with Monarch, but having looked at their website it seems they no longer fly to Florida.

September is a great time to go - still hot (25 to early 30s) but not overwhelming, villas dirt cheap if you haggle (many thousands go empty as it's a quiet time in Orlando/Kissimmee so you can drive a hard bargain) and weather great with clear blue skies and lovely warm evenings. Hurricanes are very rare and having been myself in September 5 times we have only had rain I think twice - an hour or so mid afternoon, usually with thunder and lightning, then it's gone and you're back to lovely blue skies.

I think Zika or exchange rate will have very little to do with the flight costs - most people book these flights well in advance (way before Zika and the fall in the pound) so it's more a case of it being a historically quiet and cheap time to go from the UK and they're trying to shift the last few seats.

Hotels are usually quite cheap, but to be honest if you're staying in the Kissimmee/Orlando area for the whole time then I'd recommend a villa as it will likely end up cheaper AND you have your own private property with pool.

Go onto somewhere like holidaylettings.co.uk or Homeandaway and just blanket request best prices for villas. You'll literally find hundreds and hundreds (maybe thousands) available for the period you want to go and you just send the owners stock messages saying when you're going and asking them to give you their best possible price. A few will offer no discount, but most will offer anything from 10% - 30% off and you will get quite a few who will offer staggeringly good discounts - 50% or sometimes more is possible. If you don't ask you don't get!

The best we ever got was a brand new 7 bed villa, luxuriously furnished with pool and jacuzzi, for I think 18 days for just £800 including pool heating - it should have cost £3,400 but the owner (American) was going away on business for a couple of weeks and didn't expect to get any other enquiries due to short notice (it was a week or so before we were flying) so gave me more than a 75% discount! This is an extreme example but we have had very similar offers before of more than 50% discount.

It's not cheap because of Zika, it's cheap because it's off-peak. This happens every year with Thomson. You can pick up flight prices like these last minute before the summer hols (May/June time), after them (late Aug/Sept). They simply need to fill seats. I've seen them as low as £169 (possibly lower) before. The trick is to book very last minute - sometimes the day before if you can hold your nerve!

Suddenly everyone's a travel agent!

Approximately 50,000 British holidaymakers currently in Florida should avoid unprotected sex for the rest of the summer holidays because of the risk from Zika virus, according to government advice.

An outbreak of four mosquito-transmitted cases yesterday prompted Public Health England (PHE) to advise pregnant women to consider postponing non-essential travel to the southern US state.

But for the large numbers of British tourists already there, the presence of the virus means that they should refrain from sex without a condom for eight weeks, even if neither partner has symptoms of the disease and there is no prospect of a pregnancy.


PHE advises that males returning from a Zika-affected area who show symptoms of the virus, which can include a rash, itching and headaches, should refrain from unprotected sex for a full six months to avoid onward transmission.

The guidance mirrors that given to Andy Murray and other members of the British Olympic team who are travelling to Rio.

No sex for six months after visiting Mickey mouse

You said August is peak month. You were totally incorrect. Peak SEASON is August to October. Peak month is September, then October, then August. Your uneducated comment was trying to give the impression there is a very high chance of a hurricane hitting in August. It could happen, but the chance is very small indeed. Before giving back of the fag packet advice on forums, do your research.

From which horses mouth- what are you on about? Look at the page you quoted- see the graph for Hurricanes over the last 100 years? Now see how it peaks at September 10th and drops off slower throughout October than it rises in August? I am unsure if you are trolling but just in case not, that graph shows you peak is September and there are more in October than August.
The thread is about FLORIDA quote: "And August is the peak month for Hurricanes etc ". NO IT ISNT. 3 since the 1930's out of 20 that have hit Florida have occurred in August. Many more in both September and October have hit Florida. The last August one was Andrew, I was there a week after it hit. Only 2 before then since 1935. The statistical probability of a hurricane hitting in August is low. Of course it may happen, but chances are it will not. Much higher probability September and October. Your post was misleading for anyone considering visiting Florida in August.
The people who go in August mainly have to as it is school holidays. I am going this year (12th trip) to Orlando and Naples, but I wouldn't be going if I didn't have to travel then. Best time of year to visit is November and early December, then early spring. January to March is good weather, but the Gulf Coast in particular is very busy, restaurant waiting times January to March often run to an hour due to snow birds going to live there. Gulf Coast is usually quietest in summer, so whilst the temps and humidity are very high and more rain (albeit usually short lived), the upside is that there are a lot less people around.
If you have to go to Disney in summer hols, try to make it second half of the month, as a lot of the US schools go back in the third week of August and crowds noticeably decrease.
