Family Visit to Corpus Christi

Looking to visit family for 2-3 weeks in Corpus Christi, flying in from London - a family of 4 with children aged 9 and 4. Can anyone please advise;

1. What is the cheapest time of year to travel?

2. What is the cheapest way to travel - flights into Corpus (not direct), or a flight into Houston, car hire and driving? Any other options?

3. If we have a layover, how long should we allow?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheapest time of year is a good question. The most expensive time of year is March (Spring Break) and Summer June thru August. Shoulder season would be good and the least expensive would be January and February as far as accomodations are concerned.

As far as chearpest way to travel I would price it out but most likey you can get a pretty good price on a flight through IAH or DFW into Corpus Christi. There is also the option of flying Southwest Airlines from IAH but that does cause you to have two separate tickets which could be a problem if your international flight is delayed.

One way car hire can be expensive but I would look into it and compare. We are 3.5 hours driving time from IAH. You may be able to hire a car for the entire 2-3 weeks, returning it to your arrival/departure airport for less money than a one way hire.

Transiting through IAH or DFW you should allow 3 hours minimum as you will have to clear immigration and customs as well as go through security again. It usually takes about half that time but it depends on how many international flights are arriving at the same time.

Good luck!
