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.

Answered by Larry from MALAYSIA | Aug. 30, 2019 03:28

I think the flight to Zhangjiajie should be at T2. The metro stop at T2 is not far the terminal, maybe 100 to 200m, but I think there is no wheelchair service. I suppose if you need wheelchair service, you may need to apply it with airlines firstly early in advance.
