Best time to buy airline tickets
MILWAUKEE - Are you planning to fly somewhere during the Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays?
Now may be a good time to book your flight.
If you plan to get away by plane over Thanksgiving or Christmas, now might be the best times to book your ticket.
Airlines typically discount tickets after Labor Day, and the sooner you act, the less you will pay for the best flights.
Here are some other ways that you can save a few bucks on airline tickets:
- Be flexible with your schedule.
You can save a substantial amount of money by choosing to fly on a Saturday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.
- Also consider flying on the holiday.
Some travelers have reported savings of as much as fifty percent, simply because they chose to fly on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day.
- Although airlines are constantly offering specials, some of the best deals tend to be offered on Tuesday mornings.
However, before you select what may seem to be the best price, watch out for additional fees for checking bags or reserving specific seats.
- Before you book the flight, keep in mind, most of the best deals will be for non-refundable tickets.
If you are concerned that a family illness or bad weather could put a damper on your travel plans, consider buying trip insurance.
