For anyone planning to take a trip in the near future that will require an airline flight, brushing up on the best tips for securing a fantastic price on a ticket is a good idea. Planning a trip means being mindful of a budget, and an airline ticket could be a major factor in that budget. Furthermore, going over budget on airline tickets will mean there is less to spend on entertainment, food, or the hotel on vacation. On the flip side, staying under budget on airline tickets will mean there’s more money to splurge at the destination. And who doesn’t love splurging while on vacation, right?
Here are three tips to remember when buying airline tickets:
• Check ticket prices often – Airlines change the price of their tickets frequently, sometimes multiple times a week, so if time permits, no one should give in to the first price they see. Instead, they should continue checking ticket prices, waiting to buy until they find a price they like. (They should just be mindful to not wait too long to book the flight – prices tend to go up within two weeks of the flight date.)
• Understand when to buy – The best time to buy an airline ticket is about seven weeks in advance, if flying domestically. During a holiday or other peak time, ticket prices will be higher than average no matter what, so it’s advisable to book as early as possible.
• Know when to fly – For domestic flights, flying on a Tuesday or a Wednesday is the best option for finding the most affordable ticket. In general, travelers should try to avoid flying on a Friday or Sunday, as these days are the most expensive.
