Tips on Finding Cheap Flights to Guangzhou

1. Checking the prices of the air tickets 3 months ahead is more likely to find special discount, and we recommend you make the reservation at least 2 weeks in advance for international flights and at least 1 week ahead for domestic flights, because the tickets of flights about to depart are usually sold at full price.
2. Round-trip tickets usually enjoy higher discounts than one-way tickets.
3. Passengers with limited travel budgets can book the tickets from low cost airlines. However, it is better to pay special attention to the luggage allowance of the air tickets from low cost airlines, because the allowance is often less than average, and the extra charge of the excess luggage is very expensive.
4. The ticket fare for international flight to nearby Hong Kong Airport is generally lower than that to Guangzhou Airport. So passengers can fly to Hong Kong first, and then take a coach or ferry from Hong Kong Airport to reach Guangzhou.

5. Usually, the ticket prices of the flights operated late at night or early in the morning are lower than the ticket prices of the flight operated in other periods.

It is advised to live near the Guangzhou Railway Station, which is very convenient for you to go other places by public transportation and you can find some cheap hotels easily.

Subway is not difficult to use, you may need around 1.5 hours on the way to the airport. However, usually it is advisable to reach the airport around 3 hours in advance for international flight.

I read that the hourly hotel is at -1F, so it should not be at international flight arrival area. Maybe you need a visa. You'd better confirm this information with the embassy or airport as well.
