How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Carmel
Make your flight to Carmel that little bit easier by reading over these clever security tips:

  • Airport security will expect to see your boarding pass and travel ID at the checkpoint. Tuck them away in an accessible place, so they’re all ready for inspection.
  • It’s important to know that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner’s alarms. If you have one on, you may be told to step back and take it off before proceeding.
  • Laptops and other electronic devices must be placed in a bin to be X-rayed.
  • When it comes to flying with liquids and gels, each passenger is allowed a quart-sized clear resealable bag to transport containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Steel-cap boots and other heavy shoes are usually X-rayed. Think about wearing simple sneakers instead.
  • Scissors and multi-tools are prohibited from entering the plane. Tuck them away in your checked luggage to avoid leaving them at the security checkpoint.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.

Flights To Carmel

Located along California's iconic Highway 1 and just 4 miles south of Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea sits right beside the mighty Pacific Ocean. It boasts dramatic views, pristine beaches, and a charming downtown filled with art galleries, boutiques, and cafes. Add in a world-class wine scene and intriguing cultural sites, and you have a destination worthy of high praise. Another good thing is that flights to Carmel, CA can land at one of three airports: Monterey Regional Airport (MRY), San Jose International Airport (SJC), or San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The wealth of travel options means you have the choice of arriving at your luxury.

Transportation from MRY, SJC, and SFO

For your Carmel flights landing in Monterey, know you are just 6 miles from the center of Carmel. You can take a bus (Monterey-Salinas Transit), but you do have a bit of a walk to get to the bus stop from the airport. Also, you can rent a car near baggage claim or hail a taxi outside the arrivals level. From San Jose International Airport, you'll be 77 miles from Carmel. Your best bet is to get a vehicle at the rental car center, which is located across from Terminal B. The same goes for San Francisco International Airport, which is 110 miles from Carmel. Rental cars are available on North McDonnell Road near the airport and accessible via SFO's Air Train. Once you arrive at one of the hotels in Carmel, drop off your bags, and start exploring. Sights like the beautiful Carmel Mission, stunning Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, and the famous Tor House await.
