Where to stay in Miami

Miami can be a great starting point to enjoy all that Florida has to offer.

And it could save you money on your flight too. Or perhaps you'd like to explore the Gulf Coast beaches and finish with a few nights partying on Ocean Drive?

Whatever it is, our experts are here to help you design your perfect trip, however complicated it might seem...

The Magic City: Miami Highlights

Glittering Miami is where all of the energy and dynamism of the city meets the laid-back lifestyle of the beach. There are so many reasons this Florida hotspot is known as the Magic City: streets lined with glamorous bars and nightclubs, a sea salt-scented breeze blowing over a teal-coloured ocean and a distinct Cuban influence that brings eclecticism and rhythm to its cafés and cigar shops. If you’re tempted by a holiday to Miami, here are our top recommendations of where to go, eat and sleep.

If you’re unsure, you can delay any additional payments by choosing a new time to travel by requesting a call back in Manage My booking for one of our team to look at options.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Payments are being prioritised based on when the request was made, working in order from March 2020 onwards. We will always try to process refunds at the earliest opportunity, for requests before August our maximum timeframe is 120 days. As we are steadily reducing the maximum processing time for each new request, for refund requests made in August, we expect the maximum processing time to be 80 days, from the date the refund is requested. For those requesting a refund in September, we expect it to be processed within a maximum of 60 days, and then reduce to 30 days for refunds requested in October, before returning to normal levels.

We'll be in touch soon

To finalise the amendment, one of our customer advisors will phone you. We need to work through amend requests in departure date order so we can prioritise those with the most imminent travel plans, so you may have a longer wait than usual until we’re able to ring you back. We will help everyone that wants to move their holiday.
