Transportation to/from Signia by Hilton Atlanta (Convention Hotel)

YJA is planning to have a shuttle from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) airport to the Convention hotel on Thursday, July 4th, and a return shuttle from the Convention hotel to the ATL airport on Sunday, July 7th. The exact times and schedule of the shuttle will be posted here once those details are finalized. We are planning on having our shuttles Thursday, July 4th 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM ET and for Sunday, July 7th 4:00 AM to 1:00 PM ET. Attendees will be responsible for their own transportation outside of these times.

Tips for Finding the Cheapest Flight

  1. Only book flights to ATL. No transportation will be provided from any other airport.
  2. Keep in mind that YJA will not provide overnight accommodations until the first day of convention (Thursday, July 4th).
  3. Travel in a group! Talk to a travel agent about having members of your sangh travel back and forth together. It makes the travel much more fun, and you may be able to receive a group discount from the airline!
    • Here is the link to join the whatsapp group to coordinate flying with other attendees from your area.
  4. Book 6 weeks in advance. Statistically, 47 days is the golden number to book in advance.
  5. Booking your flight on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. has been shown to result in the lowest price for the airfare.
  6. Search for flights on Chrome using “Incognito mode” (or in Private Mode for Internet Explorer). This prevents your search history from affecting the price of flights you find.
  7. Prices fluctuate! Call the airline the next day after booking to see if you can rebook without a penalty if your flight price fell.
  8. Fly two different airlines. Some airlines sell one-way flights at reasonable prices, so one airline might work better for the outbound flight while the other works better for the return.
  9. Search for flight rates on multiple sites (Expedia, Google Flights, and Skiplagged) for the best deal.
  10. Too busy to search for the best deals? Let alert you to keep you updated with the cheapest flights!
  11. Avoid penalty fees by indicating online that you intend to check-in bags. Know your airline’s policy on fees for carry-on bags, seat assignments, and printing a boarding pass.
