Chicago (CHI) to Houston (HOU)

Whaa?! A trip to Houston! You will definitely need a ticket to Houston then. Well, unless you'd rather hoof it. And although we agree walking is great exercise, you probably want to get there before the year's end. Fortunately, you found us. We can get you an awesome deal on your next flight from CHI to HOU.

How do I get the best price on my flight from CHI to HOU?

Hotwire has been doing this for years, which means getting that great deal on a Houston flight is easy-peasy. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a little know-how.

What is the cheapest day to fly?

With the right attitude and flexibility, you can fly for less. Below are the cheapest days to fly:

  • Tuesday and Wednesday—You know how most stores are not crowded midweek? Same thing here. So, get on while the getting is good.
  • Thursday and Saturday—Get a head start on that Friday crowd. This also works on your return flight. Shorten your vacay by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

Can staying the weekend get me a cheaper ticket?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to CHI can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less flexible itineraries, so that means savings for you. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

Can you save while traveling during the off-peak season?

Have good weather, will travel. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. Florida, New Orleans, and Southern California are the most popular in springtime. Winter is prime for Mexico and the Caribbean because of its warm weather, as well as ski and snowboard destinations like the Colorado Rockies. Who doesn't love some good fall foliage? The Pacific Northwest, Northern California, and New England are popular this time of the year. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.
