Peak season

The largest country in South America, and the fifth largest in the world, intrepid travellers take cheap flights to Brazil looking for adventure off the well worn backpacker routes in Europe. A vast country covering 8.5 million square kilometres, Brazil’s proximity to the equator makes certain parts a hot spot for tourists all year round weatherwise. But due to its size there is a lot of climatic variation in Brazil: equatorial, tropical, semiarid, highland tropical and subtropical. Mean temperatures at the Amazon are a steady 27C, while along the the coast it’s 23C – 27C and on average 18C – 21C up in the highlands. Just something to take into account when you’re booking your flight tickets and packing your suitcase. In general, peak tourist season is during the hot summer months (December to March) which is also the wet season, Christmas and New Years are also very busy. Rio’s Carnival (February / March) also attracts around a million people so it’s a good idea to look at booking your accommodation and cheap flights to Brazil well in advance if you’re planning on attending.

Off season

Winter, and low season, in Brazil is June to August and the coast is generally too cold for swimming. The Amazon is best visited at this time for high water levels and less mosquitos. If you’re looking for a bargain on the cheapest flights to Brazil then winter is probably your best bet.

When is the best time to book a flight to Brazil?

An ideal time to book cheap flights to Brazil is in the Spring (September to mid-November) for pleasant weather, less tourists and lower prices on flight tickets and accommodation. Autumn, right after Carnival is also a good time from March to May. Popular tourist destinations in Brazil include: Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Salvador, Iguazu falls, Cidades Históricas, Serras and the Amazon Jungle. If you plan on visiting a few destinations then the best (though not the cheapest) way to get around the country is by taking domestic Brazil flights. Look into purchasing a Brazil Airpass when booking your flight ticket which will let you travel inside Brazil for a flat low price. Buses are a good, reliable option for long-distance travel if you’re on a budget as all major cities are linked by bus. Once in a city, the most convenient and safest, way to get around is by taxi.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Sao Paulo International Airport (CGH) is around 30 km away from the city, and taxi is the most convenient means of transportation to the city centre. Look for blue and white Guarucoop radio taxis, which are safer than the plain white taxis. Catching a bus to the metro is also an option.

Rio de Janeiro International (GIG) is around 20 km north of the city centre and offers air conditioned buses to the beaches and downtown Janeiro. Air conditioned and cheap, these are a great option for tourists wanting to save some money and get a local feel, as well as getting conveniently to their hotel. There are also taxis which will cost a bit more but you can get it directly to your hotel. It’s best to use a prepaid booth to order you taxi to ensure you don’t get ripped off.
