A look into how to get cheapest offers for a airfare to Venice Italy, and how to make the airlines compete for your business.
When you are traveling to Venice Italy, you can choose from two separate nearby airports, the Marco Polo airport, which is located within the Venetian Lagoon, and Venice Treviso airport, located about 40 km from the historical center of Venice.
There are pros and cons for choosing either one.
For Marco Polo, which is located closer to Venice, you are likely to find a wide range of offers from full-service airlines, including the Italian national airline, Alitalia.
Marco Polo is a major airport, a top ten Italian airport, and has a range of services suitable for such a high-profile airport, including many restaurants, car rental companies, and several options to choose from for your travel to the city center.
Nearby Marco Polo, you can also find several airport hotels, which has made this airport a default choice for most of the business people coming to the city for a visit in corporate matters.
Venice Treviso, on the other hand, is a hub for low-cost airlines, and most notably a Northern Italian hub for Ryanair, the biggest budget airline in Europe.
Ryanair has many year-round direct routes to/from the airport, including destinations such as Barcelona, Brussels-Charleroi, Budapest, London-Stansted, and Valencia.
In addition to Ryanair, other budget airlines at the Venice Treviso airport include Germanwings, Transavia, and Wizz Air.
Once you’ve chosen your most suitable airport from the two, you should take a moment to make the available airline to compete for your business.
Luckily, as you probably know, there are a wide range of online services that allow you to sort the available ticket prices by price, such as Kayak.com (my personal favorite), Expedia.com, and Orbitz.com.
However, the problem with these services is that most of the budget airlines, which are typically the cheapest airlines for the routes to Venice, do not participate in price comparison services.
Because of this, once you’ve compared available prices from services such as Kayak.com, you should also take a moment to further compare prices from the available budget airlines for Venice, through their official websites, such as Ryanair.com.
