Los Angeles (QLA) to Tahoe City (SMF)

Whaa?! A trip to Tahoe City! Well, looks like you'll need a ticket from Los Angeles pretty soon. We suppose you could ride a bicycle for most of it, but you probably are on a bit of a schedule. Luckily, you found us. Hotwire can get you an awesome rate on your next flight from QLA to SMF.

How do I get the best price on my flight from QLA to SMF?

We've been doing this for years, which means getting that great deal on a Tahoe City flight is easy-peasy. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a few simple tips and tricks.

What is the cheapest day to fly?

With the right attitude and flexibility, you can fly for less. Below are the cheapest days to fly:

  • Tuesday and Wednesday—You know how most stores are not crowded midweek? Same thing here. Most people opt to depart at the beginning or end of the week.
  • Thursday and Saturday—Get a head start on that Friday crowd. This also works on your return flight. Shorten your holiday by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

What's the Saturday night stay rule?

Spending the weekend at your destination, like Tahoe City, usually means a less-expensive return ticket since most people fly during this time. We are all for that!

What are shoulder seasons?

Shoulder or off-peak seasons are when most people aren't traveling to certain locations. So when it is chilly, most people head off to warmer climates like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like our feathered friends. But in the summer months, you'll find that Europe is really popular. If you want lower airfare and avoid the crowds, travel when everyone else isn't.

Is that the lowest price?

Airline carriers change their rates by the hour sometimes. If you discover the price you like, then pick it. Unsurprisingly, you're not the only vacation-hungry person waiting a good deal on a flight from Los Angeles to Tahoe City. You might miss your chance to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
