Five Purchasing Tricks For Grand Canyon National Park Plane Excursions

By Paulette Neary

Spring is in the air and summer will soon be here, and that means it's vacation time. Make this vacation one you'll never forget by taking an adventure tour. There's no better choice than heading to Vegas and taking an airplane tour of the Grand Canyon.

These tips come from my own experience, and I've used them to help thousands of vacationers plan the perfect trip.

#1 Use The Internet When Booking Your Tour

Booking online is simple and convenient. You won't even need to leave your home to find the perfect tickets. Booking online doesn't just make things easier, but will also make your trip cheaper. You cut out any of the unnecessary booking fees that some agents add to ticket prices. Most importantly, when you pay with your credit card, you get all the benefits of booking online with a cheaper price, while also having peace of mind knowing that the tickets are locked in, and there will be no disappointment when you get to Vegas.

#2 Book Early

Spring and summer mean that the Canyon will be busy. So that you can be sure that you have your ticket at the best price, make sure that you book in advance. My recommendation is that you book at least two weeks in advance, or as soon as you have confirmed your hotel bookings. Never book too close to the day you want to fly. Ticket prices go up when you book closer to 48 hours of the flight schedule, so always plan in advance.

#3 Reserve A Window Seat When Buying Your Tour

Although you will get a great view even from the first seat in, the real 'front row' seat is the window seat. Booking early will mean that you will have the opportunity to sit next to the oversized window, getting the best possible view of the Canyon.

#4 Buy A Landing Tour

Vegas flights are flyover-only, or landing. Landing is the better option, and I definitely recommend going with one of these tickets. This will really add to the package by giving you access to hiking routes and lookout points, souvenir shopping, the Skywalk, or even a landing helicopter that takes you to the bottom of the West Rim.

#5 Head To The South Rim For A Unique Adventure

When you fly from Las Vegas, you can head straight to the South Rim. It takes only an hour to fly out there, which is much faster than the almost 6 hour bus tours that operate. There you can fly over in a plane, or add a helicopter flight. There's a longer helicopter tour at the South Rim which takes you to the North Rim, as well as out to the eastern boundary of the National Park. In this tour, you will be able to view over 75% of the National Park from the air. It is well worth the ticket price.

Wrapping Up

I hope this information has helped you to make the most informed decision regarding your Grand Canyon air tour. Remember that you have plenty of options, just book online and book early to ensure you get the best flights at the best prices.
