We are flying out of buffalo in Jan. Our passports will expire in March. Is this going to be an issue as I know when you fly to another country they passport has to be valid for 6mths.

According to the US Border Patrol site, Canadian citizens are only required to have a passport that is valid after their return date to Canada.

Does anyone know of any shopping close to the Buffalo airport? Like a Walmart or Target or a mall? We'd like to pick up a few things before our flight, but we won't have a lot of time.
Address / directions would be GREAT too!

Thanks!

For those of you whos are staying at the Westin hotel in Detroit, please note that the security checkin beside the front desk that hotel guests use does not open till 7:30 A.M., so early morning flights must use the regular line where the checkin counters are.

What are the pros cons of parking on site or off-site (Fast Track) @ Buffalo Airport. What are the price difference? Will be travelling for a week; but in their books it will be 8 days.

TIA

We used hotwire for upcoming trip flying out of Buffalo. We got the Best Western Airport Hotel Buffalo for $54/night then will park at Long Term B at the airport for maximum weekly of $40 plus daily max of $8......or print coupon for Long Term A from Buffalo airport website and have a daily maximum of $10 and a weekly maximum of $50. The Millenium Hotel in the mall parking lot sometimes has a park and fly for $99. I think with taxes and parking no matter which way you do it parking at hotel or airport you are going to be a little above the $100. Make sure you check hotels for how early their breakfast starts- Best Western is very early so is Sleep Inn-around 4:30 a.m. I think.

I just booked with Fairfield which is directly across the street from BUF. For 14 night Park Sleep and Fly, it was $169 for 2 Queens over Xmas holidays. That's not bad, and they said they wouldn't charge me for 2 additional parkig nights, and they are across the street. I was not impressed with Best Western last couple of years. I'll let you all know what I think of Fairfield.

Looking at the airport and off site (Fasttrack) web sites at Buffalo airport; it looks like the airport is cheaper parking at the A or B lots at the airport than on offside parking. Is the discount coupon only for the A lot? Do the parking lot get filled to capacity? Travelling the week prior to the Ontario school break in March. Flight departure is 1:30pm and plan to get to the parking lot around 11:30 Will the lot be packed?

Fairfield Inn was great. Brand new hotel. Lots of onsite parking. I highly recommend this hotel and they let me park two extra days at no additional charge.

Priceline

You can also Priceline bid (I did Name Your Price) for $65. at the Buffalo Marriott Niagara which is in Amherst, it's the only 3.5 star hotel in the area so even if you bid instead of name your price, it's the one you'll get.
The parking is included which you can confirm with the front desk.
BTW - this is the ONLY priceline'ing I've ever done & it does work!

Good luck!

I've been trying to get the Marriot for 65.00 for November 8th for over a month now, with no luck.
I've increased my bid up to 69.00 with no luck.
I'll keep trying as the date gets closer.

thanks...

Hope it works out for you! I've gotten it twice now, once on a Friday night & once on a Sunday night. FWIW I'll never 'open bid' or whatever it's called below the 3 or 3.5 star rating. I had to do so last weekend bc there was NO availability & ended up paying $90 at McKinleys Hotel which was a DUMP.
