San Jose flight FAQs

What’s the cheapest time to fly to San Jose?

San Jose is increasingly popular with tourists. Unsurprisingly, summer is the most popular time, when the average temperatures can reach up to 24°C (75°F) but this is a popular spot all year round, especially with the creative and business crowds. The months of June, July and August are particularly busy times for visitors to San Jose, so fares can be higher during that period. To find our cheapest flights to San Jose, use our lowest fare finder.

How long is the flight time from London to San Jose?

Where is San Jose Airport and what is the best way to get into the city?

San Jose International Airport is situated less than five kilometres north of downtown San Jose and has access to the highway and Freeways 101 and 880. Car hire is a great idea if you’re planning to explore outside the city, as well as for trips in town.

Taxis are easily available outside the terminal building and cost a minimum of $15 for the trip to downtown San Jose, and $3 per mile after that. Don’t forget there’s a $1.50 airport tax on cab fares.

Many hotels offer courtesy shuttle buses to and from the airport too, so check with your hotel. Or take the Airbus if you are transferring to San Francisco Airport. Alternatively there are plenty of shuttle buses that you can pre-book to take you to your location of choice.

Why not book your airport transfers when you book your San Jose holiday or flights with us? Simply, choose the best option for you on the booking pages.
