Discount Flight info

Maryland is a great destination for discount travel, one reason being the number of cities within close proximity of each other. 

For instance, for a discount flight from San Diego, California to Ocean City, Maryland, it may be cheaper to get a round trip flight to Philadelphia, Washington DC, or Baltimore, then take ground transportation (about $40 on Greyhound with an online purchase) from there. 

On the other hand, if you fly into Norfolk, Virginia and take a bus to Ocean City from there, it costs about $75 more. 



For even bigger savings, purchase your ticket on priceline.com at least two weeks in advance.

Taking advantage of Priceline's promotional features can lower the cost of your airfare by as much as 40 percent, and the cost of your hotel room by as much as 60 percent.

You can also save up to $500 on a Maryland vacation packages by booking your flight, hotel, and car all at the same time on Priceline.


To get a discount flight to Maryland, simply visit Priceline, search your desired dates and destination, then click the "Name Your Own Price" option.

Be aware that certain rules apply to naming your own price on Priceline for flights and hotels. For example, no changes can be made to your itinerary, no part of your payment can be refunded, and you don't necessarily get to choose your hotel.
