When to Fly and Find Cheap Flights for Your Next Trip
When should you fly to save money?
To save, fly on the days and times that most people do not want to fly. Business flyers want to fly out on Monday morning, and return Thursday afternoon or Friday before 5 p.m.
Best days to fly – when?
Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday.
Best times to fly – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Sleepy Time
Early mornings until 9 a.m.
Midday 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Supper and Sleepy Time 6:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.
Why? Most of flyers rather eat at home and sleep on their own pillows, and airlines need to fill seats on flights that they do not want to take. Often, you will find lower fares on these times.
Other tips to save:
- Shop and compare to find the best flight. Leveraging sites like Kayak.com, Skyscanner.cm and Momondo.com will allow you to see all fares in one place.
- Set-up price alerts on Google.com/flights to see when the price drops
- Buy your ticket on Tuesday afternoon, when most airlines match each other’s fares
- Fly after the three Cheap Flights Days.
