CLE-BTV Direct Or Drive To PIT For Cheaper Fare?

Mon Apr 22, 2013 5:22 pm

I am looking to fly out of CLE in early June, and doing a "surrounding airport" search, PIT comes up at $208 vs CLE 's $385 (this is direct). I've never driven to PIT before, with tolls, gas and parking, would it still be better to fly out of PIT vs direct to CLE?



CLE-BTV-CLE, June 8-15

PIT-IAD-BTV-EWR-PIT, June 8-15



Thanks in advance for your input!

I've done it in the reverse direction once or twice. It's 125 miles each way, roughly, and extended term parking is $8/day at PIT. (You can probably get cheaper off-airport if you want to.) So parking and car travel will cost you somewhere on the order of $125-ish depending on how you want to calculate the mileage. Add in the inconvenience and it would probably be a toss-up for me.
Fly, you fools! Fly!

Right. Another option would be just flat-out drive to BTV. I've done it before, but I'd rather fly.
