Flight to Tampa International

by chris150157

We live in the north of England and want to go to Clearwater in April 2008 can anyone tell me the cheapest way to get there, ie straight from Manchester to a US city and then down to tampa, or would it be better to book from Man to NY on one ticket and then get an internal flight down. I have looked online and the cheapest tickets I can find are £525. I was under the impression the earlier you booked the cheaper the tickets, or am I wrong.
Can anyone help please
Thanks Chris

The disadvantage-and risks-of having an off-line connection is that when you have a delay or cancellation on the first flight inbound, the next airline is not obliged to accomodate you. Chances are that you'll lose that second ticket. So be very careful with that.
Just checked Continental (MAN-EWR-TPA) in April 08: fares from 500 - 650 euros, taxes and surcharges included, depending on day of the week. And this is an on-line connection.

I use the month long search at
http://matrix.itasoftware.com/
for this type of question

When I search April 2008 for MAN>TPA
I get $870US (~441 UK pounds) mid week fares
on Continental and others. This includes
taxes and fees.

Have you given some thought to flying into Orlando on one of the reasonable charters from Manchester,doing a car hire and driving to the west coast and
directly into Clearwater in about 2 1/2 hours.

I agree that the cheapest may be to fly straight into Orlando, rent a car, and drive on to Clearwater. I often fly to Florida and Orlando offers the cheapest rates both on flights and car rental. Just returned and rented a full size car for eleven days for $188 US. Don't know how long you are staying but Orlando had a lot to offer...spend a few days there first or last. Disney, Universal,or Sea World...many other activites to do. On the drive to Clearwater, Tampa offers Busch Gardens, Lowery Zoo, and a pretty bay. Once in Clearwater, drive on down to Treasure Island, Sarasota, or Fort Myers for great snorkeling, beach, and sun...Have a great trip and send oranges or grapefruits home...they will love them!!

I just did the drive from Orlando to Tampa, and it was soooo easy. All highway, and took just over an hour. Therefore, I recommend finding the cheapest flight to Tampa *or* Orlando, because they're really about the same. Clearwater is probably about 30-60 mins beyond Tampa.

Not sure how prices are for international flights, but I've usually found that the specials that the U.S. airlines run only start about 2 months before the date of flight. Therefore, I usually book airfare about 4-6 weeks prior to my U.S. domestic flights.

Travel Tips for Tampa

Downtown Tampa

by Ewingjr98

Downtown Tampa's core is the central business district where Bank of America, Suntrust, and Verizon have major offices. This area is home to the Tampa Convention Center, historic Tampa Theater, the University of Tampa, and the old City Hall. The tallest buildings are the AmSouth Building and the Bank of America Tower, both at 42 stories and 577 feet tall. This downtown area has good trolley and bus transportation, as well as several small parks, a handful of restaurants, bars, and clubs. Channelside is considered part of downtown and it includes the The St Pete Forum, the Aquarium, and numerous shops and restaurants. There are plans to create a "riverwalk" to connect the Waterworks, Cultural, Downtown, Gateway, and Channelside Districts

Some General Tips

by tafurojo

Light colors, shorts, t-shirts during the summer months. During the winter months you can get away with t-shirts during the day for the most part but at night you may want a sweater or long sleeve t-shirt. The temp in the winter is very inconsistant so be ready to change what you plan on wearing from day to day. There are several good camping sites in Tampa. Make sure you have plenty of bug repelant during the summer months (wet season) because the mosquitos can become relentless. If you are going to be outdoors for a long period of time during the summer or even some days during the winter you want to make sure you have plenty of sunscreen. Its not just for the beaches. If you are going to a park or just walking around for a length of time you may be subject to sunburn. Again, I stress that this can still occur during the winter months.

SeaWorld

by emilienoelle

SeaWorld is in Orlando, about a 1 1/2 hour drive from Tampa (about 90 miles) and is worth the drive if you have the time. This is the home of the famous Shamu killer whale show as well as home to many dolphins, birds, fish, and other neat marine life. One of my favorite things here was the pearl divers. You pay $15 and a diver will go down into a huge tank and retrieve an oyster which is then opened for you. All of the oysters contain beautiful jewel-grade pearls.

Parking is $8 US and admission is about $ 50 US for adults and $ 35 US for kids. If you go, go very early because there is alot to see!

Everglades Eco-tours

by tampa_shawn

Billie Swamp Safari

Swamp buggy eco-tours and airboart rides operate daily in this 2200 wild acres. Also has the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum which has the nations largest display of the life and culture of the Seminole Indians. Reptile and Alligator exhibits and shows, a café, store and even native-style chickees (thatched huts) for overnight stays.

The swamp buggy is hard to picture this thing is huge and riding it is quite the experience

Remember in the summer the everglades is VERY hot and there are a lot of misquotes (especially at dusk) .

If you have a choice do this in the winter. The weather is beautiful then and there doesn't seem to be any misquotes!

I would recommend wearing both misquote repellent and sunscreen year around. In the summer I'd recommend covering your skin with long pants and sleeves.

Located between Ft Lauderdale and Naples
I 75 South to exit 49 then 19 miles North to Park Entrance

Most visit this when they are going between West and East Florida on what is called Alligator Alley. This way you only have to go 19 x2 miles out of your way to visit. You'll see the signs its north on 833. When your getting off the exit from 75 there is a gas station that has $2 discount coupons by the cashier.

While you are at the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation take time to visit

Ah-tah-thi-ki museum
the largest display of life and culture of the Florida seminals

there is also an RV resort here
