Share ride wanted to Houston

Recommended Posts

I want to get to Houston sometime in October or November.  The cost of a one way flight is exorbitant and I don't drive it.  If anyone is interested in sharing a ride and expenses, please PM me. Thanks.

Volaris lowest one way in October is 2,210 pesos, non-stop just over 2 hours.   Per Google maps, the drive time is 17 hours so the driver may want to stay in hotel one night...adding to ride share cost.

Thank you.  I used to fly Volaris and learned to hate it, but will consider it again as it will only be one way and I seldom need to go to the US.

I have flown Volaris from Denver to GDL maybe 7-10 times in the last 4-5 years. Never a bad experience. Booked now for 2 more trips paying about $135US OW..... normally over $300.   

Now their website.... that's another topic!

Rather than use their (bad) website, consider Expedia.

There site was awful last time I used it, so I agree.  Are you suggesting I can get info on their flights on Expedia?

Any local travel agent can book a ticket for you. You pay and pick up your ticket from them. Exact same price as airline pays fee to travel agent. I use my travel agent for all Volaris flights because their website is so bad. There is NO extra charge using a travel agent lakeside.

Yes... and many other sites like that.

We just made a round trip to Seattle on Volaris.  Just a couple of things ... take your own water and snacks.  You have to purchase everything.  Also, when we were in Seattle we stopped and bought ourselves a cushion for the flight back as there was very little cushion in the seat.  Ours was a 5 hour flight and the one to Houston is only a little over 2 hours so it might not be that big of a deal.  

We drive to Houston from time to time.  We don't drive at night ... and we don't drive over 8 hours so we wind up spending the night 2 nights .. one in Matehuala and one in Laredo.  The toll roads are also pretty expensive and then there is gas and food.

Think a Volaris flight would be a better deal if you don't need a car.
