Here are a few more tips to help you find cheap airfare to Harare:
- Consider flights into Bulawayo. To get from Bulawayo to Harare, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.
- Look for flights that go through Nairobi, Kenya; Cape Town, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.
- Consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Air Zimbabwe is the national airline. However, Kenya Airways, British Airways and other airlines also stop in Harare.
- Airfare to Harare will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates. The most expensive air tickets to Harare are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
