The Best Time to Buy Airline Tickets

Thanks to Allison Kade of LearnVest for a great article about buying airline tickets.  Her story gives some great pointers.

  • Shop on Tuesday mornings: fare sales are often launched Monday nights, so other airlines have matched their prices by Tuesday morning
  • Use online tools: one example is Bing’s price predictor tool
  • Follow airlines: some airlines promote one-hour sales on Facebook or Twitter only
  • Consider an airport serviced by low-cost carriers: carriers like Air Tran, Southwest, and Frontier drive down all airfares along their routes
  • Best time to buy: six weeks in advance
  • Avoid weekends if possible: prices will be lowest if you avoid the usual Friday to Sunday weekend cycle
  • Avoid Sunday flights if possible
