Best Time to Fly to Austin

There is no bad time to book cheap plane tickets to Austin. The weather is mild year-round and there's plenty to do throughout the year.

Peak Season:

Fall and Spring are great times to book airline tickets and cheap vacations. The weather is sunny and crisp and the city is alive with things to do. Be prepared for an overflow of college students during this time, though. The restaurants and bars are normally packed in specific towns, and parks and green spaces can be crowded with students.

Off Season:

There really isn't an off-tourist season in Austin, however, the humidity is highest in May and September. These are also the wettest months, but it's a good time to find cheap flights to Austin.


Traveling to Texas for some outdoor adventure? Book a flight to Austin and enjoy the great outdoors in one of the nation’s greenest cities. Austin was originally called “Waterloo” because of its excessive creeks and water areas throughout the state. Today, travelers vacationing in Austin have the chance to explore nature preserves, rivers, lakes, eco-friendly parks, and many other things around the city. In addition, Austin is one of the nation’s leading energy producers and enforces a tough recycling program in an effort to keep the city clean and green. But there’s more things to do in Austin than visit wide open spaces. Texas’ capital city is one of the fastest growing cities in America and is rich in history.

Originally a buffalo hunting ground, Austin today is home to many prominent government officials and state historical monuments. Hop a cheap flight to Austin and take a walk back in time at the Texas State Cemetery, where the rich and colorful pasts of Texas’ politicians come to life. Feel like a millionaire while you wander through Bremond Block, an area flanked with 19th century mansions and only blocks away from the many Austin landmarks that define the city. If bicycling through nature parks isn’t quite your speed, hop on a plane to Austin and tour one of the nation’s leading universities – The University of Texas. Thinking of furthering your education? Famous Longhorns include Lady Bird Johnson, Janis Joplin and Walter Cronkite.

Austin climate

Unlike the other cities in Texas, Austin enjoys settled weather and a pleasant semi-tropical climate. Even in the height of summer (June to August) temperatures are more moderate than in other parts of the state. In winter the temperature stays well above freezing. Humidity is at its highest between May and September, and these are also the wettest months. Fall (September to November) and spring (March to May) are mild and comfortable.

Getting around Austin

Austin’s public transportation will get you all over the city on public buses or vans for a flat fee. You can also transfer for free during a three-hour window. If you’re exploring the historic downtown area, check out the Armadillo Express, also called “the Dillo,” for free trolley rides. Taxis can be expensive and it’s easiest to get one by calling ahead or hanging out in front of a hotel downtown.
