Group Travel

Tips for Groups

Planning travel for a group can be difficult. Here are some tips to help you find the best deal for your group and to make planning your group travel easier.

  • Plan in advance. Reserve your travel as soon as you know when and where you want to travel, and how many will be traveling.
  • Be flexible. Consider multiple dates (such as any weekend in May instead of Memorial Day weekend), multiple destination options (such as Disneyland® or Walt Disney World®), and even alternative airports (such as Burbank instead of Los Angeles).
  • Travel on Tuesdays, Wednesday or Saturdays. These are the best days of the week to find group travel discounts.
  • Choose destinations with many flights per day. You’ll probably find better flight availability and discounts for destinations that have several flights per day.
  • Estimate your group size appropriately. If you only need 20 tickets, don't request 40. Bigger isn't always better.
  • Avoid the most popular travel dates. (Thanksgiving, winter holidays, national holidays and school breaks). Group reservations may be available during these peak times, but discounts may not be.
  • Be aware of peak and off seasons for your preferred destination. Fares are generally lower in the off season. In addition, some destinations have a "shoulder" season between the peak and off seasons, and you might find better fares at those times.
